Leary (aka "Bubby"), who is my canine companion of the last 15 years, my muse, my soul mate, and the inspiration behind Bubby & Bean, was diagnosed with Canine Hemangiosarcoma yesterday. The pronosis is poor and the cancer is incurable, and he's been given a few days to a few weeks (6 maximum) to live. Robbie flew home from tour last night to be with us, and this weekend will be devoted to spoiling Leary in every possible way. Leary's been in great health and suddenly collapsed yesterday morning, so this was a complete shock. Despite utter devastation and endless tears, I still don't quite believe it's real.
I hope you will all forgive me as I take a few days off of our regularly scheduled creative inspiration themed posts to spend time with the love of my life and let this all sink in.
