How My Dog with Cancer Taught Me About Life

Once upon a time, I was the lone girl in an all-boy household. It was my husband, our two sons, our dog Harley, and then me. Make no mistake, I love my guys – but sometimes being the only woman in the house can be tough. Finally, in late 2000, my girl arrived. She had […]

When Life Throws You Curve Balls

I can’t believe I’m writing this news. A couple of months ago, I shared my wonderful dog Willow’s story with you – how her cancer taught me incredible lessons on life, love, and letting go.
