A few of my favorite things to do


That’s me in the pool at Paws in Time, West Chicago. My favorite place on Earth! They HAVE a pool for big dogs, but I can’t get out of it so I just take over the small dog pool!

At 3 1/2 months after surgery and 2-3 weeks post chemo Thurston enjoys most of the things the he loved to do before April 22, that awful day when our world changed forever. We want everyone to know that Life is Good and we appreciate every moment that God gives us! His Birthday is August 31 and he will be 6 years old! Looking forward to a big piece of cake and some ice cream! Maybe even a party hat!

  1. You are a pawty animal Thurston! OMG your photos just crack us up, especially the one of you in the kiddie pool. Tell your Momma you need a REAL pool for your exercise OK? 😉

    We are truly enjoying learning about your wonderful life and all the cool things you are doing on three legs. THANK YOU for inviting us in. We can’t wait for the birthday pawty to start!
