Cinnamon's Memorial Wall:
Cinnamon Bear was a loyal and happy Tibetan Terrier who loved tractor rides, long walks to the creek every evening, and chasing George the family cat up trees whenever the opportunity arose. She looked forward to long boat rides on the river in the summer. In winter she danced in the falling snow and ran through snow piles using her face for a plow. On windy days she would sit in the driveway and let the breeze blow in her face as if she was riding in the car with her head out the window, which she often did on many of our family drives.
In April 2010 a small bump appeared on Cinnamon's side. This was the start of what would be a tragic outcome for our little furry friend. A visit to our vet revealed a large tumor surrounding the liver. The next step was an ultrasound for a clearer picture of the involvement of the tumor. The news was no better. The lump on her side was due to the tumor, which had severely displaced her organs now causing them to protrude out her side. With heavy hearts we packed her up and headed to Cornell Veterinary Hospital with hopes of a miracle. It was an amazing facility and Cinnamon was treated like a queen, but the miracle we hoped for was not meant to be. With the placement of the tumor so close to a main blood supply to the liver and severely displaced organs her chances for a successful surgery and recovery were poor. After one more surgeon's painfully honest opinion, we did what we thought was the best for her.....to live out the rest of her life, as comfortably as she could, for what ever time she had left.
On December 12, 2010, despite being very weak, Cinnamon insisted on going outside. There she took her last walk through a snow pile, saved just for her in the shadow of our house, just a few hours before her last breath.
Our hope is that in memory of Cinnamon, donations to her Memorial/Medical Emergency Fund will help provide the medical attention needed to save the lives of animals that have a chance to recover and enjoy a happy, healthy future.
