Dear Tripawds Family,

Today was a day of firsts.!!!

  1. Buddy sat in the passenger seat on the way to our oncology appointment.  First time in the 9+ years that we’ve been together that he has ever down that.  Caption should read “Taking Chemo Head On.”  My sweet copilot!
  2. Today was round one of 5 rounds of Cisplatin.  1st round is a lower dose than the next 4 to see how he tolerates it.  Fingers and paws crossed!  Prayers are apprecaited
  3. Our first long walk post amputation.  Buddy is part of a pack.  I could tell he’s been down because our walks are so short.  So I bought him a “CHARIOT” for when he gets tired.   We walked with the pack and when I could tell he was tired, he hopped right in his chariot!!  We walked some more, stopped at a small park and he sniffed around and rolled around on the grass for the first time since he injured his leg over a month ago.  I could tell he was he was truly happy!!!!!  I got the idea off the Triwpawds website so thank you for that!  Now I get to be that crazy lady who puts her dog in a stroller!  HAHA!  I don’t care what people think.  Buddy loved it!!!!

I can’t thank you all enough for your ongoing support and encouragement.  It means the world to me and Buddy.

    Sweeeet pictures! Love Buddy! I just love him!!

    I’m grinning ear ro ear with this update!! So happy!!

    He looks adorable in his chariot!! It’s wonderful that he took to it so easily. Buddy is a smart boy. He figured out pretty quickly that this was his new BFF!

    And that look on his face as he sits in the passenger seat…so focused…so centered…so determined! He’s ready to get this chemo pawty started!

    Hugs and love!

      Thank you Sally for your support. Our conversation really helped and I love my Oncologist. Buddy is good today – just tired. We’ll see how it goes and if he tolerates we will do a total of 5 treatments. She likes to give a smaller dose for the first round to see how they tolerate and gauge the f/u dosing. She was very honest, direct and realistic with the overall goal being QUALITY. Very happy moving forward.

      I’m in he military and I’m moving to San Diego from DC next summer so my goal is to have Buddy with me so he can enjoy the amazing Southern California weather.

      Thanks again for your support. Really means the world to us!

    PS…I love the greeting that awaited Buddy at the vets. Nice “bedside manner”!

    Buddy! You are KICKIN BUTT! Julie, it’s so awesome you have such a great vet there, Buddy is in fantastic hands. When you get out to San Diego (which you will LOVE), if he ever needs follow up check-ups the clinic to visit is the Veterinary Cancer Group, they are amazing.

    I’m sooooo hoppy to hear you like the stroller! He looks like he’s having fun being wheeled around by his humans. Lucky pup.

    Pawesome! Buddy’s Pet Gear stroller is indeed a Chariot fit for a king. 🙂
