For The Love of Cain Always – FTLoCA

The following is taken from my journal that I began when my dog Cain was diagnosed with cancer in April 2008. It chronicles the emotions that I experienced, as well as many lessons that Cain taught me through the gift that was him. It’s an easy read, so please don’t let the lengthy look scare you! I welcome your comments and hope that you too can take something with you as you read along. May it inspire you to live your life filled with love, and to cherish each moment. kk
