I took Sassy to her chemo first chemo appointment I have gotten to do that.  Did her intial blood test to check the white cell count 12,000 said it was normal.  We also had a chemistry panel done so we knew what the liver & kidneys were doing.  According to Dr Boyer ” pristine blood […]

It’s hard to belive it has been two months since you had your leg amputated Sassy.  I love you so much I would do anything to save you from this nasty Osteo.  You are doing so great for most everyone not being sure if you could handle being a Tripawd.  The best thing that happened […]

Day 52 Jan 5th

Bad day for eating.  Sassy would only eat yogurt.  I tried hamburger & rice, Pet fresh food, tried canned dog food from Merrick that she nornally likes. Nope she wouldn’t eat anything.   Finally went to McDonalds (yeah, I know not the best) but I got her to eat 2 hamburger patties.  I went to the […]

Christmas Day 2012 day 41

Saturday, January 12th, 2013

    Sassy’s first Christmas as a Tripawd.  She is doing great.  I noticed that since she is still not laying on the side that her leg was amputated on yet that if she doesn’t move she has a hard time supporting her weight on that one back leg.  I think it has something to […]

December 20 Day 37

Saturday, January 12th, 2013

Sassy’s first snow as a Tripawd.  She has done pretty well.  The snow was about 6-8 inches deep. This is making her back leg a little stonger but wish we would have had a little time to build more strength.  Sassy wanted to play with Bosch was bouncing at him trying to get him to […]
