We truly did not dare to believe that Sheba would be with us for her 12th birthday. It’s been a long hard road for the last almost 2 years, with 2 surgeries to remove cancerous lumps, and then a move to a new home which I feared would cause her too much stress and compromise her immune system. We got to the Summer of Sheba, though she gave us a couple of scares during that time, with her UTI and then later a seizure. The lumps on her side returned before summer, and x-rays showed the cancer had metastasized to her lungs and other places, so we thought we would be blessed to her have her just through that time.
What a true blessing that she is with us for her birthday. Our girl is a fighter, and through all of this time, other than the recovery from the surgeries, and the couple of scares, she has been happy, feeling well, and going strong. We lost Sheba’s brother and litter-mate, Moses, at the age of only 8 to cancer. Heck, we feel blessed to still have her at age 12, never mind fighting cancer along the way.
Sheba is all about her family and that’s why I included these photos, one when she was less than a year old, and one current of her with siblings.
Sheba and I want to thank our readers and blog friends for taking this roller coaster ride with us, and providing us much needed support along the way. So we are having a huge giveaway – with three different prizes!
First Prize is a Pet Treater subscription box!
Now you might know that Luke is our official Pet Treater spokesdog, but over the summer he let Sheba have one of his boxes, and if you are not familiar with their product you can read that post by clicking here to learn more about it!
Second prize is an Isle of Dogs prize pack! Winner will receive some of the products from each of the photos seen below; two bags from their Daily Essentials line and one shampoo and brush spray from their new CocoClean line (your choice of each):

Now those giveaways will be open to USA residents only, but we don’t want to forget our international and our kitty friends either! So there will be a separate giveaway for the prizes below, which are for cats and dogs, and it will be open to everyone! This will be coming directly from us, so we’ll also be including some other special goodies depending on what you have for pets.
Everyone is welcome to enter the 2nd giveaway, and you can do so through the Rafflecopters at the end of this post! We kept them simple!
Special thanks to our friend M.K. Clinton for coining the hashtag #StayStrongSheba (used in the rafflecopter tweet), and to Isle of Dogs and Pet Treater for joining our celebration by providing prizes!
HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR SWEET AND SPECIAL SHEBA!!
