Day 16

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

Exciting day for us.  Sassy got up on the bed all by herself.  She used to sleep on the bed all the time and since the 2nd day of amputation she wouldn’t try to get up there because her leg (the rear one that was left) couldn’t support her yet getting up there.  But she […]

Nov 28 day 14

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

Stitches came out.  This was not a good day for mom (me).  Sassy was doing really well.  When we got to the vet and waited for her to come in and check Sassy out.  We waited for a little bit.  The tech came and started to take Sassy stitches out.  When the vet finally came […]

Thanksgiving Day, Nov 22 (day 8)

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

Very busy day for everyone.  Sassy tried to run today.  She did pretty well but then decided she wasn’t going anywhere and just laid out in the sun for a long time.  Thank goodness it was warm out and not cold like it has been in the past.  She laid there until I had to […]

days 6 & 7

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

These 2 days pretty uneventful.    Sassy was uncomfortable, kept panting and walking back & forth on day 6.  So gave a tramadol and she relaxed and slept. Day 7  Had to go into the office so I wasn’t really sure how Sassy was during the day.  She seemed pretty good spirits walked in the yard […]

day 5

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

Today was the first fullday of no fentanyl patch.  Sassy did really well up until 1 pm.  She needed a Tramadol as she was whimpering.   Walked to our kennel yard and pottied down there.  Sassy didn’ t eat her breakfast in the morning but did eat her yogurt with her probiotics when I hand fed […]

Day 4 November 17,2012

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

Sassy walked to the kennel today.  She wanted to play but wouldn’t let her.  She kinda jumped at my sister in law’s Bassett hound, Marley through the fence.  It seemed to go ok.  I didn’t want her to walk back up to the house and I don’t think Sassy wanted to walk back up because […]

Day 3 November 16,2012

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

Yeah, very exciting day for us Tripawd parents.  Sassy pooped.  I know seems kinda stupid to be excited about something like that but when you have a baby that goes through a major surgery & is on major pain killers its exciting.  Balanced herself really well without falling.     Sassy could be a little stubborn these […]

Day 2 November 15th 2012

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Sassy did really well.  Held her balance really well and went out to the yard and walked a little.  The sun was shining and she got a little tired so she laid out in the yard for an hour at a time before I could get her to move.  I know a lot of that […]

Day of the surgery November 14th 2012

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Today was the big day after several surgeries that Sassy never really healed from or even got the stitches out from her biopsies we did her amputation.  I had many different feelings about doing this because we didn’t have a definate diagnosis of cancer.  All the what if questions, what if its not? what if […]

The start of our journey

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

  Well our journey starts around Sept 7th 2012 when Sassy had a surgery to remove warts from around her ear.  Approx 2 days later she started limping and I waited thinking it was just an injury from when she had surgery. So I scheduled an appointment when it did not get better Oct 10th […]
