My name is Chris but had to pick ruby my second name. Jeff my hubby & I adopted 2 rescues, Ellie who was 6 when we had her & 10 when we lost her. We lost her to cancer last march 4 years to the day we had picked her up from the rescue kennels, it broke our hearts, we loved her so much. When we'd had Ellie 12 months we adopted Nancy, a beautiful lurcher, so loving, so obedient, so beautiful, & now we've just learned she has lymphoma, I'm crying as I write this, why is it such a cruel world. We know absolutely nothing about her before she came to us as she was found as a stray, so don't even know how old she is. All I know is that she has had a wonderful life for the last 3 years but its not long enough.
