I'm an artist and occasional writer from the unfashionable end of the South Pacific, who has been involved with furry art and the fandom since the mid-nineties. I tend to draw mostly furry female pin-up type art, and am co-creator of 'Super Collie' (with John Plunkett).
It's a very sad time here at Te Whare Mayfurr.
Yesterday our 11 year old sable Shetland Sheepdog girl Sophie had to be assisted across the Rainbow Bridge due to an agressively-growing cancer in her abdomen. She had been clear of anything like this at her last vet checkup a month ago, but yesterday after noticing her acting quite lethargic and finding that her belly was untypically tight as a drum we took her to the vet again - and X-rays showed a cancerous mass inside her that was the size of a softball. There was nothing that we could do to treat her - the vet said Sophie would only have a week or so at most to live and she would be in steadily increasing pain towards the end. Her mother Rosie went the same way a few years ago, and by all accounts Rosie's end was not a pleasant one for either her or her new owners.
So with heavy hearts we did the only thing we could: have the vet put her to sleep to ease her suffering. We were with Sophie right up to the end, holding her and telling her she had been a wonderful girl as she slipped away from us. She'll be with her mother, her father Flint, her brother Kobi and sister Candi now.
