“I’m worried that my dog has cancer again. She had cancer as a puppy before we got her- she was a Christmas present when we lived in Puerto Rico. Her name is Blondie Blondie, and they found her on a beach called Dead Dog Beach because of how many strays die there. I remember her barely eating at first, because, at the shelter she had to wait until all the other dogs ate before she did. She’s the most kindred spirit I know.”
