¬°Pascua Feliz!

Easter Party AftermathI took my first long distance trip this past week. Traveled over 1,000 miles to see friends and family for Easter, and I knocked all of their socks off with my excellent health!

In fact, when I was taking a break on the road, the manager of a Taco Bell ran out to meet me! She was so impressed, and said she had never seen a tripawd dog in real life. She’s a volunteer for PALS in Lodi CA, and helps find forever homes for pets. I was so happy to show her that we are just as spunky as our four legged pals!

Snow Day for Jerry

Snow Day for JerryWoo hoo! We had such a blast on Horse Mountain yesterday, playing in the snow! It was freezing cold but I didn’t care. I ate so much snow, and my belly got so full of water, that later that night after I ate my dinner, I puked it up all up in the middle of the night.

I gave Mom and Dad a good scare today. I was coughing all morning, and they thought it was a bad sign. So they rushed me to the vet to have my lungs x-rayed. And the good news is… no big signs of meta-somethings invading my lungs from the cancer!

That’s THREE months now past my diagnosis and surgery. Yeeeeaaaay!!!! Just look at how happy I am in these movies…

Back to the Beach…

Jerry at the BeachMy fur’s coming back, and now that the temperature outside hasn’t been as cold, my Mom says I don’t have to wear my dog coats as much. I’m really starting to feel like the rugged dog I used to be!

Mom also lets me hang out in the yard by myself when I want to, she’s not as paranoid now that I’ve shown her how capable I am!

I get to go to the beach pretty often now. Be sure to check out my latest movies and photos to see how I can still tear apart the kelp and play in the surf.

Hoppy Anniversary to Me!

It’s now been over two full months since my big surgery. We’ve proven at least one prognosis wrong. The first thing my people were told is I could be expected to live 2-3 months after being diagnosed with canine osterosarcoma with or without the surgery. Well here I am feeling my best going on my third month.

Jerry still loves the Frisbee gameI haven’t dog blogged for so long because I have been having to much fun at the beach … and developing this website to help people better cope with palliative care with their bone cancer dogs.

I’ve added web resources and health tips, and added two discussion forums for everyone to post their questions, answers, tips and treatment suggestions.
Jerry and ZeusBe sure to check out my latest tripawd videos and see just what great shape I’m in. I visit happy my friends at Happy Dog, play with my new friend Zeus and catch frisbees on the beach.

Hoppy New Year Everyone!

Jerry and WinstonI had the best Christmas ever. My best pal Winston came to visit all the way from Oakland, and man, did we party! Our silly humans thought it would be good for us to wear a dumb Santa hat. I’m used to it, but not Win. He got real sad when they made him put it on.

I was spoiled rotten with presents this year. And I still haven’t lost my touch; I can tear open a package just as good as any four-legger. Thanks everyone for all of your love and presents, you make me feel so special.

Be suer to check out my Photo Gallery page for more pics from the party and all the presents I got to open!

Woof!

Big DawgsI got to play with a really BIG friendly dog in Sequoia Park on Sunday! What a great day. I hiked and got muddy and got to be a dog. I even hopped over a log all by myself.

Dawg TiredLife on three legs ain’t so bad. But now I’m dog tired…

A Day in the Park

Whatchyou lookin' at?Today I went for my first offleash walk in the park. In the rain. It was great to smell the ferns and pee on the trees again. If you’ve never seen a boy dog pee on 3 legs, well, it’s really funny! Mom forgot to take the camera though, maybe next time she’ll snap a photo for you!
