Today we had to say goodbye to Nucha. Rescued from Chicago Animal Control at a mere 6-7 years old, surrendered due to huge mammary tumors. These resulted from being bred repeatedly with complete disregard for her health.

Her visible tumors were surgically removed but pathology came back as cancer. The cancer had already spread and we knew we only had a few short months to show her love.

Her foster mom wrote "Nucha walked over the Rainbow Bridge today. She was so loved and Jon and I wished we could keep her with us but each passing day showed us that her time was drawing near. Her body was just suffering from the metastatic cancer that went to her lungs and other places. It was too hard for her to breathe and her nights started having breathing attacks with panting and coughing and rapid breathing. We could calm her down and they didn't last all night but they were strong and sadly stronger than Nucha.

She was a beautiful girl inside and out. Jon and I loved her dearly. I told Laura that before I saw the X-ray of how bad her cancer was I was hoping beyond hope that she could rally and beat this and we would adopt her. Anyway - we were just so very grateful for the time White Paws gave us with her. I will hold it close to my heart always.

Nucha had sirloin steak for breakfast (although we were spoiling her with that for a week or so now) today. Then we snuggled on the couch so she could rest for her big day. We went to the dog park and she went off leash for the first time ever. We thought she would run and zoom zoom but I think we missed her zooming opportunity. But that's okay. She walked through the park like she owned it. Then we went to Kopps and ordered a big ole burger and a vanilla cone. Nucha was a little tired though so she wanted to sleep so we gave her pets until she wanted to wake up and eat. And then she ended that Kopps burger and licked her chops. and then you all know the rest if you have gone through this. She was adorable to the end. Sitting pretty and doing tricks for Dr. Rana who - as a shoutout - is a fantastic caring vet. He didn't cure Nucha - we didn't expect him to. But he sure did treat her like family.

This is the end of my Nucha updates. What a love."

Please let's all wish her God Speed and peace at the bridge
