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!
I got some great news this week. My friend Chloe in Illinois, is doing much better after her amputation surgery three weeks ago. She had a rough go of it, but now I hear she even went swimming last week!
Read on for more more about Chloe and my latest adventures.
Woo 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…
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.
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.
I’ve added web resources and health tips, and added two discussion forums for everyone to post their questions, answers, tips and treatment suggestions.
Be 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.
I 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!
I got to donate a bunch of the toys that I won in the local “Relay for Life” too. I know my buddies could use them. They could also use good homes too, so please consider adopting a dog from the shelter OK?
