Hi My Name is Bo Bo

Hi, I am Bo Bo. I am 13 dog-years old. I once heard somebody said that for dog, after the 2nd year, each dog-year is equivalent to 4 human-year. So, hmm.. I am about 46 "years" old already.

My mom just tells me today that i have cancer. I don't know what it is but i think it's bad 'cuz she cries a lot when we got home. She hugs and kisses me like she is going out of town tomorrow. Oh... wait a minute, I think it has something to do with me going to a vet office every week. They have me drink some stinky stuff and put me in a funny looking machine. I lost most my fabulous hair after a few weeks.

Hold on ok, somebody knocks on the door. Let me go check...

hey, it's my best friend "Pan-fried Dumpling". She's only 3 dog years but she is very smart and active, always jumps up trying to get my mom's attention every time she comes.

Hi, Bo Bo, I am worrying for you. So I tell daddy and momy take me here to see you.

How are you... Oh give me a hug ok?

Hi Gyoza(ahem it's in Cantonese for "Pan-Fried Dumpling" ok), mom tells me i have cancer and it's bad.

What is it, never heard of... Are you gonna be ok?

I don't know. But i see mom cries so I think it's bad news. Something got into me Quiaxa, I am sick dear. mom says I may have to go somewhere far away from here.

it's so sad. Who's gonna talk to me when I come over? And who's gonna tell me funny stories about chasing squirrels and snapping birds? Can I go with you too?

Hey, don't be stupid heh? I'll be alright overthere, wherever it is. I'll bark your name Gyoza.

I don't know what to do to help you. But I'll pray for you everyday ok Bo Bo. We'll be missing you.

" Every step I take, every move I make
Every single day, every time I pray

I'll be missing you

Thinking of the day, when you go away
What a life to take, what a bond to break
I'll be missing you"

PS: Bo Bo isn't mine and neither is Gyoza. But I love to have them... I just wrote this article for my poor friend Bo Bo.

Bo Bo went through 10 months of chemotherapy and now his cancer is in remission. The oncologist told me that it will prolong his life for another 12 to 18 months. The cancer cannot be cured; the chemo medication can only confuse the cancer cell for so long and eventually it will come back. It has already been 13 months since his first chemotherapy session and I already considered it a blessing. As long as Bo Bo is living a good quality life, I will continue to support and get him the chemo treatment that he needs. Bo Bo is doing really well now. He never acted like he is sick at all. I am very grateful for the 13 years that we spent together. He is the best dog that anyone could ever ask for. I know in my heart that he can leave me any time soon; therefore, I have prepared myself for the worst.

Bo Bo is gonna be just OK!
We all should not feel sorry for Bo Bo since he is already been around for so long. Instead, we should be happy and grateful for him as he is still healthy and in good shape. I think that a good life should be evaluated by how you enjoy it, but not the length of it. Take Care!

I couldn't agree more with the previous comment. I think live's quality is more significant than how long you live!
