For Sasha... I miss you girl!


Bunny Snow level-classic June 15, 2011

Beautiful portrait and memory of a lovely black lab.
My heart goes out to you, as I still miss my Becca, who died of bone cancer at the age of 10, 5 years ago. I strongly believe her death occurred from the production waters in the contaminated soil that was imported into our yard to fill the holes left by the uprooted tree downed by Hurricane Lili. In Becca's case, the production waters from the drilling of oil and gas,contained significant levels of radionuclides, which are normally occurring radioactive materials known to cause bone cancer in people and animals.

However, Sasha died, I hope she finds peace from pain as Becca has.
