Cassie

Companion Category Winner!

Cassie

Congratulations to Cassie – winner of the 2021 SupeeDog Companion Award!

Cassie, our beautiful Cavachon, came to us as a tiny puppy in January 2017 and instantly came into her own.

My Dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer that same month and despite being a very bouncy little pup, when we visited Dad she climbed on his lap and barely left his side. She also sensed when I was feeling really upset and snuggled closely into me throughout his illness and when we lost him.

Life since then has got progressively harder. I am disabled anyway and use crutches inside / wheelchair to go out and Cassie just seems to sense when I am having a bad day. Just a couple of months after my Dad passed away, my brother was diagnosed with lung cancer.

After months of treatment, it looked like he was cancer-free but at that time Cassie suddenly became very clingy to me, even reluctant to go out for walks with my husband. She does agility and loves it, but all of a sudden when she was let off her lead to start her run, instead of running the course, she turned around, ran back to me and jumped on my lap. This went on for a few weeks during which time I found a breast lump and yes, cancer had struck again. I’m sure Cassie sensed the cancer and was trying to tell us.

She’s still a bouncy, mischievous little dog but when I came home after surgery she was so gentle and cuddled up close. She supported me through Chemo and radiotherapy and gradually started going for longer walks / restarting agility as I got better. Fingers, and everything else, crossed I’m hopefully cancer-free though still have some treatment and my general health isn’t so good. She is still our loyal companion.

Unfortunately, whilst I was having treatment it was found my brother had developed secondaries in his brain and passed away last November. It’s been a nightmare few years, but Cassie has been a true and loyal companion not just to me, but also to my husband whilst he has been trying to support me.
She’s been a true friend to my son who quietly gets on with things and has himself been a great support and almost a therapy dog to my daughter who suffers from severe mental health issues and has obviously found these last few years incredibly difficult.

Cassie even entered the socially distanced Race for Life last year to raise money for cancer research, wearing her own Race for Life top as shown in the photos.

I know we would all have struggled with these last few years so much more without our faithful, mischievous bundle of fun – our truly loyal companion Cassie!

Cassie is a wonderful little girl. She came into Sue’s life just at a time when she was needed most. She gives the family a reason to get up in the morning. They have taken time to take her training and she is such a clever little dog. She gives so much support and knows when a cuddle is needed. Listens to sue when she needs someone to talk to. I don’t think sue would be here if it wasn’t for Cassie. Good luck well deserved to get this far. But I am sure she can go all the way.
