Introducing, Devo

July 15, 2020

Our sweet girl, Devo, is 8 years old and living with histiocytic sarcoma. We’re one week post amputation, and I’m hoping to use this blog to share her journey. Before I do that, a little about the first 8 years of her life:

  • Devo was born in Guatemala, dropped off in a box at a pet refuge. A fostering group flew her to California where we found her and adopted her. She had some itchy elbows and was pretty standoffish at first, but soon she fell in love with the beach and her life in California.
  • Seeing Devo on the beach is like a glimpse of heaven. She runs in circles like a total maniac, splashes in the water (doesn’t like to swim), and generally has the best time of anyone there. Our goal is for her to have some more beach visits in this final season of her life.
  • Devo’s back yard was a state park for 7 years. She chased coyotes, even caught up to one once! She hiked miles and miles with me, found new trails and canyons. At first it was just us then with me carrying my babies in carriers. It was magic, and I think both our spirits are headed back there someday.
  • Devo has been in the background of all our family’s life moments – camping trips, she even went back country skiing, and she was there for both my kids births.
  • She’s a sweet soul and we’re glad for the time we have with her <3
