It’s All About Meeeeee!

This is meeeeee with my new weight loss (before I stole the bread).
Yes. I stole this and I ruined Hoomom’s dinner and no I am NOT sorry. I am only sorry Mom found the bag out on the deck where I was hiding it.

It’s all about the latest and greatest – MEEEEEE! I am still doing great! Two weeks (April 22) marks the one year anniversary of my osteosarcoma diagnosis and the vet telling my hooman Mom I only had 3 weeks to 3 months more to live with her. I went back there and pooped on his grass.

We were at University of Wisconsin last week and I am still healthy AND I LOST 7.5 pounds on my diet! My oncologist said I am still too fat but I told her she needs to realize that this is muscle. I also reminded her of my real purpose in life and that is to get Mom to give me all the Blue Bunny Ice Cream I can get. I got NONE while on this diet so I decided to steal Mom’s bread and ruin her dinner. She just laughed at me and told me I am the cutest person she knows. I got her fooled.

May 11 marks my 1 YEAR AMPUVERSARY and if I know my hooman Mom she will have some Blue Bunny Ice Cream and a cake… and a party hat ready for me. I go back to UW on June 5 for my recheck so I have a whole 2 months to lose a little more weight. I WILL have the Blue Bunny!!!

Love and Hoppy Spring to all my fellow Tripawds!

  1. WHAAAAT? You are almost ONE YEAR out Thurston? Oh my dog time goes way too fast. I am SO HOPPY FOR YOU!!!

    OK that bread stealing is something you must have learned from our Wyatt. He’s the master of stealing food when we are not looking. You boys! I agree, you are too cute.

    Glad to hear the weight loss is working out mostly. Your Mom has the willpower of steel to not give into your sweet face. Don’t worry, I’m sure she will spoil you on your big day.

    Cheers to you handsome boy!!!! We are thrilled that life is good. Now go take a big ol stinky dump on that vet’s lawn just to remind him that DOGS DON’T HAVE TIME STAMPS ON THEIR BUTTS!!!

  2. HAPPY ALMOST ONE YEAR AMPUVERSARY THRUSTON!!! PAWTY ON!!! TIme to open up the Blue Bunny Ice Cream carton and dig in!!

    Thurston, you had me grinning ear to ear, as well as laughing pretty much non-stop the whole time I was reading your update.

    And ditto taking a vig ole’ dump at that Bet’s yard. Save some for the entrance to his front door too!

    As usual, you had me smooching the screen with each adorable picture of your cute self! You are sooooo handsome!

    Two loaves of bread???? That’ll teach your Mom to reconsider this diet crap! Poor hungry boy! She is doing what’s best for you though……just doesn’t seem like it to you!!! Congrats on the incredible “fitness diet”. Quite impressive!!

    We adore you Thurston!

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
