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!

    Cannot believe we are celebrating TWO YEARS CHEMOVERSARY and TWENTY SEVEN MONTH DIAGNOSISCERSARY!! You sure showed that Vet statistics don’t mean squat to you!! Hahahspeakingmof “squat”. Keep on squatting to take a poop on his grass just to remind he heis statistics don’t mean 💩..
    You have such a good hoomama to let you bake cookies with her. Glad you did throw up when you ate them. It does seem as though she may be gett a little stingy with her Blue Bunny rations. We’ll have to keep a close watch on that.
    I know you and Raffie hate those darn masks. Me too! But you two look so adorable in them!! Cutest masked pups evvvver!!!
    I’m so glad to hear from you…you and Raffie and your Hoomom. You ALWAYS brighten our day!!!
