ho wow, what can I say?

Well, first, hi everyone, thanks for stopping on my page. Hope you will find it to your liking.

I'm Adeline, I'm French, and I'm 34 years old (but make that more like 8 or 10 mentally, at the outmost)

I write. I can't draw to save my life due to a very poor eyesight after a failed surgery, but I do write, a lot. Here I will publish personal works, excerpts of my ongoing Novels, and an few fanfics just because :)
I will also post my attempts at colouring and my successes in cooking and sewing cause I just can't stay idle :)



IMPORTANT! All the drawings on my gallery are pieces I have commissioned from fellow deviants artists to illustrate my stories (Go see their galleries, you will be amazed). I was allowed to use those and even own the commercial rights to some pieces. Nothing here is stolen so haters bashing me for "not being an artist" because I can't draw myself can go eat a potato.


One other, very important thing:

ALL my Ocs are characters I put a lot of effort in creating, designing in the tiniest details, giving a story and background and such. Please be respectful of that and don't steal, claim as your own, copy or "heavily inspire from" It's not only a really pathetic thing to do, but also terribly hurtful for me. Please respect my creations, thanks!


Random facts about me:
-I have two dogs (a frenchie and a bullie) and I'm foster family for mistreated pets so there are generally more than those two on my couch.
- I love to cook
- I have an evil laugh. really. The bad witch in the forest? That's me. Mwouahahhahaha!
- I have a pervy mind! I write pervy texts when I'm stressed out (better than chocolate!).
- I have a weird talent for finding money, literally: I find at least a coin or banknote per month, varying from 50 euros (woot) to one euro (hey, not to be spitted on!)
- I have a very lousy sense of humor, and I love telling dirty jokes. Bear with it.
- I'm nice, much to my dismay. Nice people tend to have a harder time than others but I can't seem to manage to get rid of my niceness. Damn!
- I make friends quite easily so if you want to talk, do go on!

The day I let you go over the Rainbow Bridge

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 16, 2014, 5:43 AM
We have shared so much, my sweet darling.

I still remember your as this new born, fuzzy white and black puppy what called out so surprinsingly loud when I held you on the palm of my hand.
How you grew, to be pretty, and smart, and stubborn, and playful, and gentle and loving and caring.
You were a dream dog. You were MY dog. Through thick and thin we stuck together for more than a decade.
You helped raise kittens, you gave your love to al those poor mistreated dogs we fostered together, showing them that humans could be trusted, that there was still hope. You cared and played and cuddled and helped so much over the years. I am so so proud of you.

I helped you across the Rainbow Bridge today.

You couldn't do it by ourself, and you hurt so much. I could see it in your eyes, in your stiff gait, in those whimpers you couldn't muffle those last days. So yes, I killed you, my best friend, and I am so sorry for that. I gave you this last gift of death so you could go with dignity, go in peace, go in my arms, surrounded by all my love, because I always, always loved you.

I am sorry I couldn't save you, so I did the next best thing and set you free. I am sorry.



Today was a beautiful day.

We ate together, you and Thémis and I, this morning. I let you both on the couch, even if usually you weren't allowed it when I was eating, and we shared your favourites foods. Croissants and smoked salmon and ham and bacon and vanilla yogurt and banana slices and even a few drops of beer. You ate all with gusto, and then laid for a nap. You were so tired.

When the time came, the vet and me took you out into the garden as you requested. You wanted one last stroll in your place, and you did it quietly, sniffing around before coming back to me, on top of those mossy stairs you always liked, your perfect sunny napping spot.

It was such a perfect winter day, crisp and clear with a glorious blue sky barely streaked with white, and a shining sun.

I brushed you with that hog hair brush you liked so much while the vet did the first injection, the one to make you sleep. Then she massaged your back, ho so gently, whispering what a great dog you had been, how beautiful you were. She was crying too, even if she tried to hide it. She birthed you all those years back and saw you grow too.

We went back inside and I laid you on my lap, one last time. You were deeply asleep, but I know you heard me when I told you my goodbye, my thanks, my love. You were such an amazing dog.

You left between one breath and another, and I could have sworn there was this small Bulldog "smile" on your face. You had won. You have won, my sweetheart. You have won against cancer, you never let it take you down and you left on your terms, not its own toll of pain and death.

Farewell my Taïga, my tank, my gas factory, my cuddle monster, my sweet sweet frenchie.

I love you.

If there is a Heaven for dogs, I can not think of another dog worthier than you.

I love you.

Saying goodbye isn't easy, so please help me?

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 29, 2014, 12:54 PM

UPDATES, EDIT AND NEWS (I will try to keep you posted as frequently as possible on what is going on, the fresher updates will be on top)



:new:


Taïga's health has taken a turn for the worse. I came back home yesterday to find her bleeding from her mouth and crying in pain. What vet and I feared is happening: the tumor is digging through her palate and it causes bleeding and suffocation. I called my vet asap and she came at my place immediately. After something to stop the bleeding and some morphin to stop the pain, she sat me down and , well..
It is time. We knew it would happen at some point, and it is happening faster than we thought, but it is time.
We won't be able to keep the pain at bay much longer and Taïga is in pain, sad, unhappy and suffering.
It has been a very, very hard decision to take but after the night Taïga had, whimpering when she couldn't sleep and stalking around the flat in distress and such...

We will help my furbaby cross the Rainbow Bridge on Tuesday. I managed to get a day off (my colleague agreed to cover for me). Letting her suffer isn't something I can, I will do.



To all my friends here who met Taïga in real life, I would love to have a few words of how you remember her.


Thanks to all those that helped us gain those months together.
************************


Hi everyone. Sorry for the silence. Work and end of the year rushes are taking their toll on my free time, and as I still try to keep as much of it for Taïga, I tend to be somehowmore afk. Sorry again.
She is.. Going down, slowly, but steadily. Still no pain (or very little, and very treatable) but she is tiring faster, sleeping more, and now can not "hold" herself so I have to change her bedding every day (she can't stand diapers). The big doggy bed I had sewed for them is good for the trash and I have no time to make a new one. I will try to find some time to go get a good new one, easily washable. She will be going on for some more Xrays on monday, to check the tuor progress: it is spreading faster than we thought and vet and I are afraid it means tumor is eating at her jaw bones and pushing at the teeth (that would make it very painful and means the end of the path)
At work things are busy. I was supposed to have some vacations (well earned if I may say) in january but those seem to be compromised, due to some events unexpected and none of my fault, if I may say.
This moment of year isn't kind on memories for me (my granddad died on Xmas eve, my biological father committed suicide on New Year's eve) so nerves are a bit frayed here. Sorry again. I cry a lot. I sleep badly. I have nightmares, especially of my mother (who abused my lil bro and me for years until she went the one step too much and ended in jail, and we ended in hospital when she tried to get rid of us) 

I would like to thank everyone that is reaching out to me, sending me messages, phoning me or skyping me. I know, I know I may sound cold in my answers to you but it's only cause it is very, very hard to hold on and I am afraid tears won't stop once they start. It means a lot to me, it really does.

Okay.. Where to start, cause today was.. eventful to say the least.

So first thing this moring I dropped Taïga at teh vet. We had a long chat as she examined her carefully, checking for lumps or anything suspicious. I realised (again) how much of a great vet I have when Taïga had again an "accident" in the vet's office and rather that being angry of even disapproving, she saw how distressed Taïga was, so just plopped on the ground, cross legged, and crooned at Taïga and cuddled her until my furbaby relaxed. I have an amazing vet. :)

So, since for her it is the treatment that is too strong for Taïga's kidneys and bladder to stand, we will alter once again the protocol, cut off the daily dose to one every two day, add another medication the other day, and add a little bit of morphinic painkiller for the night. She thinks that Taïga's distress is caused at night by her excessive drooling that may impair her breathing, so I also have drops to add to her food on the evening before bed (like for the babies, yes indeed).
So, no new tumors so far, yay! :XD:

Thing is, today was also the first day of a rather strong cold wave, and while going to the vet wasn't a problem, asthere was still some sun and no wind when I left, by the time we were done there was a bitter cold wind howling and the sky was all foggy. Taïga was really miserable so I hurried up, picking her in my arms half way, and went back home.

What happened after is partly my fault, because I was so upset about Taïga and wanting to have her nice and warm that I barreled inside my building, then my flat, without being careful to my surroundings. i dropped Taïga on the couch and went to the bathroom to get the heating pad, and when I went back to her.. There was someone in my flat.

A stinky, drunken man that had sneaked behind me and that had seen I ghadn't locked my flat door since I had Taaïga in my arms. He had a alcohol bottle in his hand, reeked to the seventh circle of Hell, bloodshot eyes, and I just screamed my lungs out in terror.

He tried to grab me, so I pushed him out, slammed the door, locked it, and stood there trembling as he screamed obscenities at me before leaving. I grabbed the phone, called the Police, and they came just in time as he was trying to enter another house, this time an old lady's house!

He was on drugs, totally gone, and they took him away. It seems like he had sneaked in my building before me (surely just after the mailman) and was hidden in the upper stairs when he heard me, and decided to try his luck when he saw I hadn't locked my own flat door behind me.

I was so afraid.. I cried like a baby for a good ten minutes after that. The policemen were very kind and nice and comforting, saying it wasn't my fault and having a ground floor flat it was putting me at risk for such things, especially since someone hadn't locked teh buildinbg door beforehand, but hey, I am the one that didn't lock my door too, even if it is only for a handful of seconds...

Good news is that Taïga was quite unfazed by what happened and is  now cuddled on the couch with her sister Thémis and soaking up the heater :)

First of all, sorry for not giving news for a few days. Things were a tad rough is and truth be told.. I was very sad and unhappy and so I clammed up a little. Taïga isn't well. She starts to be in pain sometimes and is having again some bladder control issues. My vet and I conferred about it and monday morning, I will have to drop her for a full set of exams. We need to know if it's her treatment that is altering her kidney functions, of if it is the cancer that has spread..
If her kidneys are damaged, I do not know what we will do. Not only dialysis vet facilities are very, very rare, these are also dreadfully expensive and, very stressful for the dogs.
I am not ready for this decision, not now. it's too soon.
So monday will be another full check out and we will see what the exams give out as results.
One small frenchie selfie for the road, for the ones who wonder why I am such a typo queen: I have a weight on my wrist, that's why :)

Have a good day and please keep Taïga in your thoughts

:heart: :love: :iconmavrosh: prints are ready, if you want to go have a look! :love: :heart: Help for a friendEDIT: Print files for three pictures are now available!  I hope to help at least a little bit with this... thank you for being awesome!

_________________
Hello my dear watchers and friends,
this time I am again coming to you and ask for help for a dear friend of mine, who has had enough bad luck in the past weeks. Not only did her relationship end and left her with a lot money less, also her beloved dog now has cancer and the vet bills are high but need to be paid. Her cute little pup will not be cured but she can live on without pain until she must be laid to rest one day - of course this costs a lot of money. And all this happened pretty much at the same time!
I asked her if I may send her money, as she has helped me out in the past as well, when things were not going that well for me. But then it happened that a bag of mine got stolen right in front of m


*clambers slowly out of bed, half sliding half rolling, like some prehistorical creature emerging from the murky depths*

Hack, arg, koff.. Ho, you're there...
Well, for the last two days, the roles have been inversed and it's Taïga sweetie that is taking care of her poor ailing mama. My best friend made me a great gift: flu! :lol: As a result, I found poor litle me all trembling with fever, hacking my lungs out, and generally feeling miserable. Luckily for me, colleague agreed to take on my shift and I was able to do the crawl in/ crawl out the nearest pharmacy, where the kind lady delivered me the strongest syrup she had with a "be careful, it is effective, but on some people, it ma cause drowsiness"
What she meant was "You're going to come back home, slug a spoonful of this, and almost instantly black out on your bed for  hours"
The good thing is that nothing beat a warm doggy to fight the shivers (pic to come) and that Taïga is a very dedicated nurse for that, always nestling at my side to be sure I am all set and tucked.
She also loooves licking clean my bowls of soup even if it means she ends up with a pumpkin orange halo on her white fur, one that is quickly cleaned up by Themis :D

**********************************


So far Taïga is still good, eating well and playing, and no weight loss to signal, although she drools a little bit more, which was to be expected. No more accidents, I good some big absorbents pads from my vet, and she asked about Thémis for my girls have spent their whole life together and she is actually very worried too on how Thémis may cope with what is happening, taïga having always been the leader of them both. I showed her the cudling pictures and she just whispering softly a "Shit.. She knows, she can feel it..." and blinked rapidly several times before turning to fill the new prescription.
She will come see the two of them next week or the week after anyway.


On a slightly lighter note (and because I needed the change), I did a little bit of home made pampering this week end. A friend cut my hair, and I dyed it with a mixture of henna and lemon juice and cinamom and madder and voilà:
 Couleur by spadiekitchenqueen

What do you think? I wasn't to go spend money of hairdresser and chemicals while I had everything at hand, and i think it looks not too bad, and the shorter crop will be easier to manage :)

Message to all the auction winners:
I started to send the jewels. You will receive the jewels only, because, I am sorry, the little gift I am planning to make to all and everyone that helped me with Taïga's healthcare isn't yet finished, although it is well advanced. So you will receive a second package later, do not worry, and of course, a giant thank you for your help! :love:

***********************




:iconsadplz: Yesterday evening as I came back to work I found Taïga prostrated on the floor. She wasn't even on her bed (a 2 square metres couch I made for her and Thémis) and wouldn't move, or look at me, as I entered tha living room. She just stood there, flat on the floor, whimpering and avoiding my eyes. I was at her side in a nano second, terrified. Turns out my poor sweet girl has had an "accident" on the newly set couch and since she is a very very clean little dog, she was overwhelmed by shame.
The vet had warned me it may happen (and that, knowing how clean Taîga is, she would hate it happening) and realising it was just that, had me suddenly collapse on the floor next to her, bawling my eyes out while hiccuping "It's okay baby, it's not your fault, Mama isn't mad at you, I promise.."
On another not as grim but still ouchy new, I paid out the last roll of bills (rent, taxes, and more than everything, the Xrays, blood works, biopsy and renewal of treatment and special food for Taïga) making it a +/- 1100$ in checks sent, in one day (lucky it's not the same everyday, haha)
The auctions end tonight, I will send a note to all those who will have won to have their addresses so watch your inboxes!

Now after a short and let's say it, bad night, I am off to a nap/ cuddle with the furbabies.
Have a great sunday.

Mavrosh :iconmavrosh: has started a print project to help along, go see there and pick your fave :love: mavrosh.deviantart.com/journal…

I am sorry I disappeared for a few days without giving you news. I just swamped myself in things to do, all the while keeping an eye of Taïga to try to dull the anxiety which she must feel too, and which isn't good for her.

In one spurt of masochism determination, I decided to start exercise again... Last year I could easily get to 2* 100 squats while watching my fave serie on TV. Let's just say that after a dreadful half hour that sounded life *huff, pant, pant* "Good grief I can't believe this hurt so much* *whimper, pant, huff some more* "Please kill me now I can't feel my legs. No, rectification. I feel my legs. And I live to regret it" :XD: I painfully managed a 3*20 rep. Pitiful I tell you. And I walked funny for two days after, of course. But at least I slept well.

Taïga is okay. She drools a litle bit more than before (but that was to be expected) hasn't lost any weight, and is still playing so, so far, so good. I sent the checks for her last exams (the new cross results biopsy, the blood works, and the Xrays) and for now, technically, and at least until early december it will be her daily treatmen, special food, careful monitoring but no more vet trip needed for two weeks (yay).
Thémis has, i think, started to "feel" something isn't as usual with her sis. She is constantly at Taïga's side and while before they both were great fans of a bit of rough and tumble before dinner (they would strew pillows and toys all around the place, barreling after each others) she is now cuddling her non stop, alot to the point of boring Taïga

Ho, I also good finally (ater 6 weeks!) my new kitchen applainces because as good as I am at cooking, a 100% oven of steamed regimen is sometimes boring. Yay for my new stuff, which got upgraded for "free" by the man setting it in cause I had been so nice and kind waiting (truth is, I wouldn't have the heart to scream at the poor guy that got so sick he was still almost retching in the phone when he called me two weeks ago.) Anyhow, in a typical Spadie way, as the man was struggling under the counters and grumbling about how tight space it was and he couldn't get a hold I suggested a "Want me to hold it and guide it in?" to which I stopped dead and almost screamed in my hurry "The electric part! the electric part I meant!"
Not my best moment....

So.. Lots of kisses to you my dear friends from afar, but so close in my heart! :iconloveloveplz:

Sunday napping in momma's bed, cuddled with her sister Thémis Calinou by spadiekitchenqueen



The night from thursday to saturday was a tad rough as Taïga woke up in pain with a slight bleeding, but it did stop quickly and a minor ajustment to her treatment did take care of the pain (I will still go back to the vet on monday to check with her). Yesterday she was hence much better and playing again and eating with gusto.

This sunday morning after their walkies I went to do some grocery shopping and such, and crossed a homeless kid with his dog. Since he asked politely and the dog looked well cared for (and the kid didn't stink of weed or alcohol, let's say it) I offered him to share my stll warm out of the oven bread and he tore into it, but gave it first to his dog. That was enough for me and I ended up giving him half of what I had bought (bread, yogurts, shampoo, and sausages). We chatted for some times then parted ways. If Karma exists, let's hope it will tip the balance for my Taïga.
Hugs to you all my friends.





*****************************

Sa Majesté Taïga is still doing well. She sleeps and plays and cuddles and gases me (yep, sometimes both of those at the same time). She has started to have a real stinky mouth, though, but vet said it was alas, one of the effects of her palate tumor.. *sigh*

Attention donators/ future donators! Now, TheDivineMissM-94 is ofering sketches to all those that helped/ will help with Taïga's health issues! see here: A friend in need!   Hey everyone! This is a special kind of journal today, you've probably seen similar journals floating around lately and that's because a very dear person is in need of some help.
   Some of you may know spadiekitchenqueen, or maybe you've even seen her about! For those of you who don't know her, she's a wonderful person, with a great spirit and beautiful soul, and she's in need of some help.
   Her beautiful little French Bulldog Taïga has just been diagnosed with cancer, and Adeline has unfortunately been through her own health and  personal issues that have left her struggling to afford the cost of medication and special food and other necessities for darling little Taïga.
   So she's auctioning some of her beautiful jewellery off. If you can't afford to bid on a piece but have a few dollars spare and want to help, she's also accepting donations. Please consider giving something if you have it, I know a dollar o
 for more details! Thanks to her! :love:

A message from Taiga!


(I was listening to it while cleaning up and she started to wiggle and bark, so Bulldog approved! :D )


Next week I will close the donations. I will soon have reached enough to pay for 3 months of medications and special food for Taïga (THANK YOU SO SO MUCH ALL OF YOU!) and I hope that with the auctionned jewels I will have enough to keep on  with the exams and at home visits she may soon need.
I also hope that by this time, my financial situation will have cleared up (I have alreday signed up for all the extra hours I can in December, no kidding, I work almost everyday save on the 25t...). The vet has told me Taïga time with us is to be counted in months, and not a lot at that, so I also took some time for her in january.

Again I want to thank you from the deepest depths of my heart. I wasn't expecting this outpouring of help and care and love and compassion and it still leave me dazed, but in a great, marveling way. You guys are awesome, you know that? :huggle:

One last thing and because I want to say it, not because I was asked. If ever, in the end, I still have some of the donations that were made to me... I will donate in your name, to a French Bulldog rescue group, in taïga's memory, so the love she had all her life, and in those last months your kindness and help offered us together, can be shared and spread to other fren,chies that didn't have her chance
*****************************

The wet food has arrived and the least I can say is that it encountered a great success, so great that I hadn't even the time to grab my camera for the promised picture. If I had, you would just have seen the wiggling butt of a very enthusiastic bullldog busy snarfing down her turkey and lamb with apples and green beans (yeah, it does sound appetizing, and it even smells appetizing...). The only downside being that wet food + bulldog, well.. Let's say that my flat is now haunted sometimes by ghostly greenish evil fart spirits! :XD:

Also, my dear :icongnewi: is offering shaded sketches comissions to help for Taïga medical care, see here
A Friend in Need - Sketches for Donations!Thank you everyone!! Slots are filled for now, but I will let you know if I open up another batch. :)
In the meantime you can still bid on the gorgeous jewelry spadiekitchenqueen has up for auction! Thank you!!
My dear friend :iconspadiekitchenqueen: needs your help!

It has been discovered that her beautiful dog Taiga is suffering from a rare form of cancer. The treatments for this are very expensive. Having been struggling with her own health problems she has little left to help her dear, Taiga.
To help raise funds spadiekitchenqueen is auctioning some beautiful pieces of jewelry which you can find on her journal here:

To assist her in raising funds I will be offering shaded sketch commissions. I don't know how many I will be limiting these to at this time but will open 10 slots for now and will see how much interest there is and how quickly I can finish them. Because I am busy with other things as well, pleas


Thank you all :love:
***************

*From now on :iconcrypticgrin: has kindly offered to thank every donator by offering them a drawing! Thank you so so so very much (and a big slobbery kis from Taïga) :love:
This person needs help! Please read!spadiekitchenqueen's dog has cancer. She needs help paying for the veterinary bills. In order to raise money, she's selling jewelry. Please go help her out! I want to donate so badly. I wish I had some money to give. 
If you can't donate, please share this. 


*I want also to extend a big thank you to all those that helped out already, that spread the words, sent me amazing notes of support, shared their stories of their beloved pets and so much more. You guys rock to the highest heights of awesomeness!

**************

*1st of november week end went well. Taïga tolerate her medication quite well and has spend a nice two days lazying around since the weather out was just horrendous. She also got a nice bath (she loves being bathed, and even more the blow dryer!). the wet food shall arrive tomorrow and she will have her choice of lamb, chicken, or game meats to feast upon  but no jealousy, her "sister" Themis will be able to taste it too :) . This wet foor will avoid her wounding the tumoral zones with the dry kibble.  Tomorrow I will post you pics of them together ;)




I met again today with my vet after she called a cancerologist vet from Paris for advice. Together they reviewed Taïga case again as to determine what's the best to do for her. Here is a list of what we know and can/ will do. I apologise if some medical terms are off as I do not know all the translations in english.
It's a cartilagenous carcinoma, located on the upper jaw and palate.
Such cancer , if possible, must be operated asap to take the tumour out. However, in that case it is impossible. To correctly remove such lesion, the operation must also take out at least 2 centimetres around the tumour. The localisation of here in our situation makes that impossible, as well, we do not have 2 centimetres to cut off in her head..
Such cancers spread fast, and do develop metastasis, especially on the lungs. We are establishing an appointment to have Xrays taken to check if it has spread already or not.
So far, Taïga is in absolutely no pain. The only trouble she is facing is a slight discomfort when chewing her kibble, which won't be a problem as she is switched to highly nutritious wet food, to allow her to not sollicitate her jaw any more than necessary.
The cancerologist has mentionned a quite efficient molecule that is used to stall the development of cancer in agressive mammaries tumours. He thinks it may very well stall or at least slow down the development of Taïga's cancer. Sadly what she is suffering from is rather uncommon so not very well documented. Those medications were ordered by my vet and I will receive those tomorrow.
What we will have to keep under strict watch in the following days/ weeks:

*Where and how is the tumour spreading: located as it is, it can keep on the palate, goes on front and attack the jaw and teeth, or go down and spread into the sinuses and throat.
*The metastasis risk is to be very carefully monitored
*She may start to suffer from mouth bleeding and that too would be problematic (but I have friends with big dogs that are ready to help for the transfusions)


What has the future on hold?


Both vets were bluntly honest. There is nothing we can do to SAVE her life. This tumour can not be removed. BUT, it can be stalled or slowed, even if for a short period of time (a few months, a year?) in which she will keep on living her life as usual.


SO far and I insist on this, She is in no pain! She is fighting bravely like the amazing pup I know she is
:love:

What will happen if things go downhill?

Well, as bittersweet as it is, I also have been warned that things could get a turn for the worse quite unexpectedely fast, and that, when THAT time will come, my vet will come to my place so Taïga can cross the Rainbow bridge in her home, in our garden, surrounded by all those who love her.
She insisted on us planning this too and as painful as it is, I understand why.

Now on another subject, I want to thank you all, from the depths of my heart, for you support and care and friendship. The amount of help, kindness, support I received those last days were nothing short of incredible and I can not even start to explain how much it holds me up and together in the task of facing this ordeal. You guys are amazing, and amazing doesn't even cover one percent of your awesomeness.

Please, please, kind donators, do give me your postal address. I want to thank you for your support and what I have in mind requires to sned you something. It would mean a lot to me, and help me express my gratefulness in a way that words can not start to describe.

I am now going back to caring for Taïga and her sister Thémis and I will keep you posted when I have news, thanking you all, friends from near and afar, but always, always close in my heart.



(TL; DR, my dog has cancer and I am broke after my break-up and own health problems, so I am selling some of my jewelry to afford treatments, see below for what I offer)








Taïga, my sweet, beloved pup, my lil frenchie girl has cancer.

I was there the day she was born. She was such a cute lil white and pink thing, like a soft furry slug that would squeal with joy as she played and tumbled around with her brothers and sisters.

Except for the few, very few days she was at the vet (aka, neutering) we have never been apart.

And now, my faithul companion, my so loyal friend, my beloved furbaby, is on her last time here on earth.

A growth had appeared in her mouth a couple months ago, and my first trip to the vet wasn't worrying. It isn't uncommon for  dogs to have cysts and such. But as I saw the thing get bigger by the day, I ran back to the vet and she took one look and said that it had to go off, asap. Of course, surgery on a french bulldog isn't something done lightly.

It went perfectly well, and we settled to wait for the lab results.

It dropped two days ago.

Carcinoma.

It's a death warrant for my dog.

Carcinoma survival rates, even with heavy treatments, is 30% in thh following 6 months, and drops to 5% after one year.

I am still stunned by the news that I am going to lose her, way sooner than what I would ever have considered.

She is still playing, happy, cuddly, and not in pain, but it will change, very soon. I look at her snoring on my knees and begging to have her ears scratched just like she likes it and I can not, I CAN NOT imagine her not be here in less than a year.

Everyone who has met her had fell in love with her. She is perfect, smart, loving, playing, so perfectlyu well behaved, mischievous and yet so tender...

I am not ready.

I am so not ready.

But as I have to wrap my head around the fact that we will soon be torn apart, another worry is tearing my heart to shreds.

I am not able to pay right now, for the treatments. She is going to need X rays to see how far it had spread. She is going to need medications and such.

And I can not afford it. I broke up with my boyfriend two months ago and it left me in a dire situation, as he took utilities and such and I had to shoulder the many bills.

I would do anything for my dog. I do not care a little bit about me. For all I care I could go without eating or live in the gutter as long as she is safe and well cared for. I would never, ever beg for me.

but for her?

I do.

I beg for help. I ask you to help her, not me.

I would never have done this for anything else but for my dogs.

And even now, I can not stand the idea of just standing there and asking.

so here is the deal.

I am going to sell my jewels, auction those out like some adoptables.

What I have to offer is here:

You can bid under the pics, or privately. The auction will run for 10 days, starting now, the bids will be without shipping fees as I will have to calculate those depending on where you are. I will keep it updated as best as I can, but keep in mind I will also spend a lot of time with Taïga, as I want to be there for her. All the jewels are either one of a kind or very small batches, and all are sterling silver.

If you can not bid but still want to help, you can spread the word, make polls or journals about her. I would be ever so thankful. If you wish I can also send you my paypal address but I rather want to warn you that if you help and do not buy, expect me to do something in return, send you something.. I can't do anything else but I will, I promise. Thank you

La terre est sèche sous nos pas. Les plantations sont mortes, cuites sur pied par le vent permanent, brûlant comme à la sortie d'un four. Le sol n'a même pas craquelé, il a cuit, transformant ce qui fut une belle terre arable riche et féconde en un sable grisâtre qui nous fouette le visage, nous forçant à plisser les yeux. Les trois jeeps sont à quelques centaines de mètres de distance, les outils de mesure brillant au soleil tandis que les hommes les déplient, échassiers d'aluminium et de verre qui ne feront que confirmer ce que nous pressentons déjà.
C’est la fin. Il n'y a plus rien à sauver ici.
Dans notre jeep se trouve la fille d'un des scientifiques, une gamine décharnée aux yeux bien trop graves pour son âge. Il l’emmène partout avec lui depuis qu'il est veuf. Tant d'entre nous ont perdus des êtres chers. La faim, la soif, la maladie. Ce monde meurt, et nous avec.
Je la regarde du coin de l’œil comme à mon habitude et elle me rend furtivement la pareille. Je crois que nous nous intimidons mutuellement. Elle reste silencieuse, prenant garde à ne jamais gêner. Son nom? Il n'a pas d'importance. Pour tous, elle est la Petite, comme le fils d'un autre membre de l'équipe est le Gamin, les derniers enfants nés d'un monde agonisant.
Les autres la traitent avec un mélange d'indifférence feinte et d'affection bourrue, partageant avec elle les rares gorgées d'eau qu'ils obtiennent de leurs extracteurs en fin de vie. Ils lui parlent du passé, d'une époque où le blé poussait vert et dru, où les forêts étaient autres choses que ces cimetières froufroutants, avec cette maladresse émouvante des hommes qui n'ont pas connu autre chose que cette vie sur les routes.
Le ciel n'est plus bleu depuis bien longtemps. Noyé de poussière en permanence il est normalement d'un blanc sale, mais les volutes qui montent nous inquiètent tous. D'un noir rougeâtre, elles s'étendent de part et d'autre du ciel telles des griffes fuligineuses, assombrissant l'horizon.
Du mouvement, soudain, dans la première jeep, puis dans la seconde, tandis que nos machines aussi commence à bourdonner, puis à hurler de toute leur force mécanique.
Le feu.
Ce qui nous entoure, c’est le feu, venu de toutes parts.
Les talkies walkies crépitent, les ordres fusent. La ville d'où nous venons est condamnée, sûrement déjà dévorée par les flammes. Notre seule chance est ce groupement de fermes un peu plus loin, ces quelques agriculteurs qui nous ont payé pour les relevés que nous effectuons, espérant contre toute attente que nous pourrions leur donner de l'espoir.
Le ciel s'assombrit de plus en plus tandis que nous fonçons, pied au plancher. L'air est irrespirable, lourd de suies grasses et collantes.
Sans ralentir les jeeps se séparent, une dans chaque ferme. Tenter de prévenir les habitants? Inutile: s'ils n'ont pas déjà compris, il est trop tard pour eux.
Notre jeep rebondit sèchement sur ses essieux tandis que nous entrons dans une des étables, juste à temps pour voir un taureau fou de rage et de terreur encorner son propriétaire, traversant sa poitrine de part en part. Le corps désarticulé disparait sous les sabots du troupeau. Une fin en une poignée de secondes.
La Petite ne hurle même pas. Même si elle l'avait fait, je doute que nous aurions pu l'entendre dans le vacarme ambiant.
Le vent de flammes siffle autour de la grange, les animaux hurlent. Nous descendons de la Jeep, et ramenons les chevaux dans les boxes. Ce sont des bêtes magnifiques, de lourds Clydesdales dont la confiance en l'homme est telle qu'il s'apaisent dès lors que nous saisissons leur licou. Ils sont sûrs que nous les sauverons. J’aimerais avoir la force de leur certitude.
Nous attendons, muets et impuissants. La Petite est debout à coté de son père, la petite poigne invisible dans la grande main burinée. Le feu nous encercle... Puis nous épargne. La chaleur d'enfer persiste toute la nuit, mais par je ne sais quel miracle... Les flammes n'ont pas dévoré cette ferme, ou les deux autres. Les talkies walkies ont crépité une dernière fois, porteurs de cette nouvelle, avant de s'éteindre. Alors seulement nous pleurons. Dans la grange enfin silencieuse, dans cette atmosphère lourde de terreur, le sommeil s'installe, bercé par un bruit que nul n’avait entendu depuis des années. La pluie.
Deux jours ont passé. La pluie tombe toujours, ruisselant sur une terre trop assoiffée pour réussir à la boire. Nos outils de mesure cliquettent doucement, nous offrant relevé après relevé, bien trop tard, les réponses que nous avions attendu si longtemps.
Nous nous sommes tous réunis. Il nous faut établir un plan. Nous n'avons vu aucun survivant, mais il est certain qu'ils viendront. L'avis général est clair. Il nous faudra nous défendre. Les fermes se doivent d'être protégées. Le bétail, les semences, la Petite et le Gamin. L'espoir d'un futur.
Nous travaillons, sans relâche. Les barbelés s'élèvent. Nous apprenons à nous occuper des bêtes. Les granges débordent de foin, de paille, de grains. Les fermiers pressentaient ils ce qui allait se passer? Nous n'en saurons rien.
Nul ne vient, malgré nos craintes. Nuit et jour, nous travaillons, bercés par le bruit de la pluie sans fin. Les machines ont parlé.
400 jours et 400 nuits. Le Nouveau Déluge. le Nouveau Monde.
Le Nouveau Deluge
Une petite flash fiction inspirée d'un rêve que j'ai fait la nuit dernière. (Mon inconscient est un fatras cosmique sans nom)

Ce n’est pas grand chose, mais si c’est le signe que ma muse revient enfin, je suis heureuse

Many thanks for joining :iconshadowsofthemarches:

Remember to leave an offering to the ravens, but don't try tasting their stew. If you grow hungry during the journey, Aura's cooking is recommended. She's the only one who grew up on a farm, even though it was for only eight years. If you want a prediction for the future to go with that, make sure you tell her before she adds the spice.
