An update on Tate- Monday of this week Tate was given a feeding tube because he wasn’t eating and needed nutrients in order to stay strong enough to receive chemotherapy treatments. Having the feeding tube has also allowed us to take Tate home! We can now easily feed him and administer his medications. We are so grateful have Tate back at home with us! He is still pretty sick and seems tired but once he got home I could tell his spirits were lifted. I’m spending every second I can with him and will continue to monitor him and make sure he’s feeling as good as he possibly can. Thank you to everyone who has been praying for Tate and for sending all the love and positive energy, I can feel it so strongly and I truly believe it’s helping Tate heal and feel a little better.

An update on Tate – HE MADE IT TO THE WEDDING! It was truly a miracle and I believe it was because he had so many people praying for him and sending him healing energy, that he was able to make it to our wedding. It meant so much to me to have him there with me on this day. There was a time earlier in the week that I thought he wouldn’t make it. It was the craziest timing with Tate’s health on a severe decline the week of our wedding and I’m just so happy he pulled through in the end. Today Tate is doing SO much better. We were able to get his feeding tube removed and he seems to have his appetite back and he’s eating again. He has energy and seems to be more like his normal self. He’s responding well to his medications and chemotherapy treatments. As long as he seems up for the fight so am I. So thank you yo everyone who held Tate close and in your heart. He was my first love so having him with me meant the world to me.

In August 2023, Taylor Hill adopted a 7-month-old black German Shepherd named Salem (who Hill claims is half cat.)

Meet Salem! I thought it was only appropriate to introduce him to all of you on National Dog Day! A big thank you to @animalaidusa for opening my heart back up to adopting after the passing of Tate. Salem is a 7 month old German Shepherd with a heart of gold and goofy personality. I can’t wait for all of you to get to know Salem and be on this journey with us.
