The bravest doggie in the whole wide world....

.....and she is doing it all for rosemary and Steve......not exactly a good thing.Because of some of the comments: Penelope has been diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her right shoulder. This all started last November with what was thought to be arthritis. If you make the photo bigger you can see the tumor and how it has affected her leg. She is alert and tries so very hard to do the things she used to love.....walking in the forest...she can barely get past the cement on the driveway. She used to love car rides but now she can't stand long enough to get her nose out the window. She can only lay on her left side and the spot where her elbow was calloused is now scabbing. This whole thing has been hard to watch. I am ready to let her go....Steve needs more time.
