NO BLFC for me - Backing out :( by Idess

Unfortunately, a week before the con, I've decided to cancel the trip and not attend BLFC this year.
My dog Chloe is sick with (what we think is) Hepatitis. She requires over 7 medications a day and close monitoring and encouraging to eat, drink, etc. Chloe has been with me for 10 years now and is very dependent and bonded to me; and though she has shown improvement in the last few days, I would not be able to enjoy my time at a convention or focus on work when worrying about her back at home. At this point, I've spent all week focusing on nothing else but her so I don't even think it would be possible to finish con prep at this point anyway. Not to mention the burden it would put on the caretaker watching her if we left.
I am sad to miss out, but in the end my "child" and her health is more important than a convention. There is always next year :)

To any Pre-Order clients: I sent out an email to you, but in case you didn't get it, your badges will be available for pickup at Thornwolf's table; #52 (right next to my table), so you will still be able to pick up your badges for the con :)

Otherwise, I will sorely miss attending this amazing con, but am also a bit relieved I don't have to worry about anything else right now besides Chloe's health and well-being.

I am still planning on doing the home con Jammy Jam so anyone who wanted to commission me at BLFC keep an eye out for that, I will be taking con-type commissions for that ^^ Otherwise, for anyone else going, I will see you at RMFC :)

    Dogs are family. You can always attend another con or BLFC 2016. You cant replace loved ones. Totally understandable.

    Aww, poor dog. It would be hard to enjoy the con with that on your mind. Hope the improvement continues.

      Thank you, since I posted this she has indeed been showing improvement and we've had good news regarding her health from the vet so it's been a relief!
