Mary nowhere near the exit
It was a beautiful day on April 21, 2018 when Mary became part of the CAPE family. In the days that followed, she had a bubble bath to rid her of a flea infestation; visits to the veterinarian where she was diagnosed with an inoperable abdominal tumor; a nutrition plan of five meals a day that was developed to gently bring her body back from the ravages of starvation.
During her veterinary exam, we were told that she may have one week or one month to live. Here we are 16 1/2 weeks later, and Mary is nowhere near leaving this life.
Although the tumor continues to grow, Mary does not seem at all bothered by it. She carries on each day with an attitude that all is normal and good. She gets excited at her mealtimes. She is patient and calm with all people and dogs. She ambles about the house and outdoors without any pain or concerns.
Mary's daily life is a thing of beauty. And she is not interested in changing a thing.

Sweet Mary...she should inspire us all to squeeze out as much life as possible.
