4/27/18 My baby Basil would’ve been 10 years young...It’s been almost a year since she passed from cancer & I still have the empty space in my heart. Basil was such an active part of my identity, I had to learn who I was w/o her... Her joy, enthusiasm, fearless attitude & humor gave so much life to Kupe & I. We haven’t been the same since she’s left but we will always carry her w/ us.
Pet owners: Please get ultrasounds for your babies annually as a lot of cancers do not show up w/ other tests. Basil was kept in tip top shape but we didn’t know she had cancer until she showed the physical signs & we got an ultrasound done which showed she had stage 4 cervical cancer. It’s heart breaking to see your baby in pain. Be diligent w/ ultrasounds. No annual x-Ray, blood work or stool sample will show many forms of cancer. Ultrasound annually.
Basil, mommy loves you always. 💖
