Okay, I am just throwing this out there: does anyone else feel closer to their dog than to humans through this roller coaster journey?

I have a wonderful life and great support, but my little blind shelter dog Lewie (a white poodle mix) has been constantly by my side- whether I am sleeping on the couch after chemo or in the armchair after surgery, or posting like now- he is on the couch next to me with his head in my lap.

This little guy never leaves my side except when I go to work, then he pretty much just sleeps with his buddy (daddy's boy) on their memory foam bed until I get back. Yes, a bit spoiled, I admit it.

I am wondering if anyone else has a similar relationship with their "comfort dog"? He has helped me so much.

My friends saved my hair through chemo with Penguin Cold Caps. Thank you capping crew!! Now NED 5 years out. Hang in there!

Hubby is putting new kitchen cabinets and Dozer had to go check them out.

I went to stay with grandsons for 3 days and wherever I am he is also. Won't leave my side. Dozer stayed home with Hubby while I was gone.
