Today was a good day!

Trapawds Family,

Buddy is almost 1 month post amputation and 8 days post first round of chemo and my boy could not be doing better.  A very wise woman once told me to “follow Buddy’s lead…..he doesn’t know he has cancer” and that is exactly what we are doing.

Today Buddy wanted to walk farther than ever.  I had his chariot on standby and we took many breaks.  2 of those breaks involved lots of rolling in the grass.  Buddy also just wanted to sit in the sun so that is what we did.  I really don’t think I’ve ever seen him happier and that makes my heart full.

I know the journey has just begun but I will cherish every moment we have together!

Thank you all so much for your sage advice and support.  We are thriving!!


Julie and Buddy

Dear sweet Buddy Darling crossed the Rainbow Bridge 6 months post diagnosis of OSA. We had an amazing 10 years together and that will have to be enough until we meet again!

  2. Buddy! Who did your makeup? You have white in all the right places enhanced by black whiskers and brows. Wow, I love it.

    Your happiness shines through. Keep enjoying that sun and your hoppy walks.
