Wuff-wuff!

Life on three legs can be so good!

My second crotoxin shot helped with the leg edema and I’m feeling young and active again. My doggy-mom even had to call me back because I was getting too far away and she still thinks I wont be able to manage the way back!! Moms are so afraid of everything even if they don’t show it, and give us a good time!

Julia & Horacia

Julia & Horacia

Just coming home from the vet. Hori’s back left leg (the front left is gone) is swollen and I was worried. Seems I have grounds to worry. The limph node is swollen and there is no apparent reason for it so I have to accept that maybe it is cancer spreading.
Had a breakdown in the car once Horacia was safely strapped in… I just coud not stop the tears from coming. I am so so scared that this might just be it. I really need some months/years to adjust to the idea of her leaving me.

I have just one hope left, and that is the crotoxin treatment we are starting tomorrow instead of monday or tuesday.

Almost two weeks since ampu

August 25th, 2009 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Today was my first real outing with my best friend and half brother Castaño, a beautiful german shepherd. We were born on different continents at about the same time in the mid of 2004… and then our pawrents met and decided to live toghether in Argentina rather than Germany and in July 2005 we flew over and a whole new world and my future best friend were there waiting for me.

At first I had to get used to the new landsapes and especially the weather (which is way better than in Europe!) but then life just kept getting better and better.

Then, a month ago, I started limping and my front left leg hurt. It was very quick and I had an osteosarcoma diagnosis… Thank God, my pawrents found Tripawds.com and on the 12th of August I underwent aputation. The other alternative was really scary!

And now… almost two weeks after surgery I can go out and play again with my brother and even try to get as far as he does!! Well, I had some problems when I suddenly saw how far I had gotten from home. But then there’s always somebody there to “save” me.

So good luck to other future tripawds… life is really worth living under Jerrys Leitmotiv: better to hop on three than limp on four!!!!

Hori’s Cancer Story

A month ago we had a lump on Hori’s left wrist checked, x-rays showed it was CANCER. Unbelievable, but we had to accept it. And we had to find options. Well, there wasn’t much.

We decided to go through with amputation, her only meager chance of releasing her of pain and of having some quality life before the cancer would take her away.
