Gotcha Day #8 and News About Meeeee!!

This is my Gotcha Day Celebration – I adopted Hoomama 8 years ago on November 1. I know Mom thinks she gave birth to me, so don’t tell her I am adopted. She would be devastated. She made me waffles and got me all my favorite goodies! Look at the size of that bone!

I was seen for my Oncology follow up at University of Wisconsin and they were sooo excited to see me! I am 137.5 pounds now so I have knocked off quite a few pounds so I can get around better. The doctor said I look PAWESOME! My study was supposed to end on Nov 1 but they got funding for another year so I am gonna keep going there. I am one of only 2 dogs still in the study.

I am 31 months post diagnosis and celebrating the Tripawd life! Hoomama says I am her HERO and she is RIGHT! I AM sooo cute she can hardly stand it!

I Have Outlived My Study!! 27 Months Ampuversary

 

Meeee and Hoomama’s cheap motel room. This bed is WAY too high!

AUGUST 11 IS MY 27 MONTHS AMPUVERSARY! I did NOT get a celebration cause my Birthday is 8/11. I was cheated – right?!

I did have an adventure though. Very bad storm by my house on 8/10/20 and the power went out at about 3:30PM. When it had not come back on at 7PM Hoomama and I (mostly Meee) decided it was time to move to plan B. Our appointment at University of Wisconsin was 8/11/20 at 10AM, so after discussing it with Hoomama, I decided we should drive 1/2 way and stay overnight at a hotel near Interstate 90. In the morning we would proceed to UW without any breakfast for me cause I gotta get a little sedation for my Xray.

Away we went and THIS is where we stayed – See photo above – as you can see this was NOT a Hyatt House or even a Hilton or Marriott! Hoomama said it was just fine but it was NOT FINE! Look at that bed! There was NO WAY I could get up on that bed. Hoomama said I could sleep on the floor! Imagine her saying that?!  Often I DO sleep on the floor at home but that is MY CHOICE and I was NOT happy. Anyhow, I had some water and some treats and I peed on the grass so it was OK.

I got a new doctor and she was really nice. Dr. Magee is still there so I got to visit with her too! I really love it once I get there, I just don’t like going. Everyone here is always soooo excited to see meeee. I am a FAVORITE.

I was told the Study I am in will be over at the end of October. I HAVE OUTLIVED THE STUDY!!! There were 7 or 8 other dogs in that study at UW – (there are sites at different Universities as well). Just ME and one other dog are still alive and kicking with 3 legs at 2+ years. I will get to go back one more time at end of October. After that there is no more funding for the study. I am hoping to see some results of the study in the future. Hoomama said she will pay for me to be seen there every 6 months cause she really loves this place!

Thank You Jesus, UW and Tripawds Foundation for helping meee and Hoomama so I can have a normal and full life. I will be 8 years old 8/31 and I am told that is a normal lifespan for a big dog like meeee! I am planning on going on BEING MORE DOG as long as I can!

More to come! Love and sloppy kisses and wagging tails and HAIR all over the place!

2 Year Chemoversary!

My celebration – carob cookies and rib eye steak with sweet potatoes and carrots. I threw up!!

 

Having flashbacks of 2 years ago when Hoomama and I celebrated the end of chemo with steaks. I threw up then and I threw up again! I just eat sooo fast. I can’t control myself.

I helped Hoomama bake carob oatmeal cookies and carob walnut cookies. She has these recipes special for doggos but she eats them too. They’re really good!

Way too long since I had the Blue Bunny – those are my teeth marks from eating the carton.

Hoomom gave me my favorite the other day. Took her way too long between Blue Bunnies so I tried to eat the container!!!

Me and  Raffie with our masks all set to go out. This social distancing is getting on my last nerve. We are way too cute to keep our faces covered.

New Normal? I don’t think so!

Been doing pretty good. I am 27 months post diagnosis – that vet that said 3 weeks to 3 months is sooo happy for me (except when I go poop on his grass). Going to University of Wisconsin for X ray/exam August 11 and my 8th Birthday is August 31! Lots to look forward to! Love and sloppy kisses to all!

2 YEARS AMPUVERSARY and Lazy Hoomama

It’s My Party and I am sharing it with my BIG (older) brother. That’s the kinda doggo I am!
Don’t mind sharing cake, but NOT SHARING Ice Cream!
I am SUCH a HERO!! 2 WHOLE YEARS After my surgery! Hoomom made this cake for me!
This is meeeee and my Oncologist at University of Wisconsin. She is Dr. Kara Magee. She loves me, too!

Hi Everyone!!! Its MEEEEE Finally after a long time without any updates. I am soooo embarrassed because I know everyone is freaking out that I haven’t posted in soooo long. IT’S NOT MY FAULT!!!! It’s my Hoomama.  I am not sure about WHY she’s not posting but I have 2 theories about this. First and most obvious is that she is a lazy slug. I don’t really like thinking that about her so i have another idea…

I think it might be the virus everyone has been talking about. Hoomama might think the Corona virus is a COMPUTER virus and she is not going to use her computer unless she HAS to (I insisted today she HAD to). I told her computer viruses don’t do anything to Hoomans and made her look on Google!

I can’t type myself because my paw is too big and I only have one so I depend on her to post things for me. She said nothing is changing and that all my pictures are the SAME so she wanted to wait for some news. I think she is just LAZY.

Anyhow… enuff about her and now it’s all about MEEEE!

Nothing is new… well… almost nothing….Biggest news is AMPUVERSARY #2  Had my exam at University of Wisconsin a month late because of the Corona virus. I did GREAT. No humans are allowed in there now, so Dr. Magee came out to the car to pick me up. Hoomom was a little worried I wouldn’t go with her but I decided I would cooperate just to make things easier. Dr. Magee was wearing a MASK! I had to use my nose to be sure it was really her! All these humans with masks on is just weird! Had my Chest X-Ray and labs and exam and I was a very good boy! I jumped onto the X-Ray table! Just showing off how strong I am! Everything is good. No evidence of cancer in this doggo! I bark all the time and my voice is strong and loud as ever!!!

I did have 2 other “adventures” in the past couple months… first one was that I fell outta bed. This time I really hurt myself and I scared Hoomama so bad she was up at 8AM calling people for help and advice! At first I couldn’t move. I let out a  BIG “Yelp”… That means OUCH in dog speech. I tried to get up but my legs wouldn’t work! Legs were just shaking and Mom was crying and hugging me. She was soooo scared. I gotta say I was really worried about myself. Hoomom left my harness in the car and she CANNOT lift me, anyhow so I had to lay there while she was crying and praying! Its was awful. She said for me to just lay here while she gets my harness and figures things out. NO WAY, I thought … so when she got back from getting my harness I was standing at the door waiting for her!!! She still took me to the vet, but I was OK after a few days of Vetprofen and some extra treats. Mom got rid of her bed frame after that and now if I fall it won’t be far. That bed was too high anyhow! Woof! Woof!

My other adventure was stealing 4 pounds of doggie dental treats and eating them all at once out on the deck so I wouldn’t get caught! I puked for 2 days and it looked like white paint! Terrified Mom until she saw the empty bag outside. After that,  I had 2 more days of white paint diarrhea! I will never learn. I will steal and sneak around forever cause its who I am and what I do! More soon!! Love to all! Woof! Woof!
