I Hate Goodbyes
- Posted on: Aug 9 2021
Last week, my family said goodbye to my sweet Bella.
We adopted Bella just over five years ago, when she was eight. Bella’s owner was desperately looking for someone to adopt her, as Bella had an unknown illness which her owner was unable to care for.
We fell in love with her the first time we saw her, and very soon afterwards brought her home for the first time.
Within a few days we found out that her illness was more serious than we’d anticipated. She had cancer, specifically leukemia and lymphoma. Bella was given 1-2 years to live.
We started her on chemotherapy and her cancers went into remission.
Until about six months ago.
Bella is the smartest and sweetest dog we’ve ever met. Although she only usually came to me when she was scared, she bonded quickly with my wife Amy and was her shadow and constant companion. She even inspired us to adopt two more senior rescue dogs, Macks and Sammy (who died a year ago).
Yesterday Bella crossed over the rainbow bridge. She survived many years longer than anyone expected, and I take solace in the fact that she never lived a single day when she didn’t know she was loved immensely.
That is not the case with most rescue dogs or cats. There are so many beautiful, sweet souls who need homes. In memory of Bella, please consider adopting over buying. Petfinder.com is a wonderful resource to view needy pets in your area.
Here are the latest episodes of my podcast, The Holistic Plastic Surgery Show. Please SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss a single information-packed show!
Episode #249 – “Would You Rather:” Functional vs. Traditional Medicine with Dr. Jerry Bailey – Functional medicine doctors think differently than traditional medical doctors. With this in mind, I thought it would be fun and educational to play a game of “Would You Rather” with my good friend and functional medicine doctor Dr. Jerry Bailey. We switch off between asking each other thought provoking, and sometimes embarrassing, questions.
Cardio or weight lifting? Acupuncture facelift or threadlift? Energy healing or essential oils? It’s a game where the winner is you, since you will get great information and even some laughs.
Episode #248 – Holistic Solutions for Thinning Hair with Dr. Anthony Youn – Millions of Americans are dealing with thinning hair. It affects men and women of all ages. But do you have to undergo hair transplants or take pharmaceutical medications to improve it? No!
In this podcast I share with you my holistic solutions for thinning hair. I give you five treatments (in order) which you should consider if you want to thicken your hair. All of these are proven scientifically to work, and none of them require going under the knife
