Because of the holiday season, I haven't focused much on the news so I was stunned and saddened to learn Lil' Bub passed away December 1st.

To say she was adorable is an understatement. Bub captured the hearts of so many people. Her presence on this earth had a profound impact. She became the poster child of special needs animals, bringing awareness of challenged animals in need of responsible pet parents. Bub certainly proved pets can and do live happy, active lives in spite of their medical issues and disabilities.

Bub brought a lot of joy to people through her pictures, videos, books and appearances. Most of all she raised money for a host of animal shelters.

To her human family I want to say 'Thank You!' for sharing Lil' Bub with us. You took great care of her. You gave Bub eight wonderful years she wouldn't have had if she didn't belong to you and you made the world a brighter place by taking us all along for the ride.

Rest in Peace, Lil' Bub. I'm gonna miss you.

It has been a very trying year for us. Annie's health issues continued, Handsome's heart condition progressed to severe & Orphee, in addition to his FIV+ status, recently was diagnosed with diabetes.

Right now, we are in the process of purchasing insulin and sharps and preparing for a trip to the veterinarian to learn how to administer his insulin, handle his dietary needs to get his diabetes under control and hopefully at some point achieve remission.

Belle is our only completely healthy fur baby. Emotionally it's hard to care for ill furry family members because you look at them so trusting in you to do the right thing for them, but everything must rely on your skill in detecting their needs. The patient cannot communicate their needs to the caregiver. It can be a heartbreaking situation.

Well, we will continue to do what we can for Orphee as we have done for every one of our beloved furry family members.

Annie can be insistent at times especially when a favorite food is involved. She loves pizza crust, roast pork strips from Won Ton Soup, chicken from Chicken Chow Mein and crunchy Chow Mein Noodles straight from the little cellophane bag.

But her favorite is vanilla cake from cupcakes. Artie couldn't resist getting video of her demanding her share of a mini-cupcake.
