An update on our lives

Well, next Monday the 14th would have been Sassy’s 4 year ampuversary if she was here.  So we will start with my girl that brought us to this family.   Even though our journey wasn’t what I wanted ( I wanted a lot longer) I still love her and miss her.  This past 2 months have been rough.  We have lost a few of our Warriors.  We have more & more babies joining.  What I want more than anything (besides my girl back but that can’t happen) is for a cure for this effing disease.




So this is what is happening now.  We finally have Jazz on a great path after limping for a few month and chiropractic, acupuncture, laser & deep tissue massage we are finally coming to the end of her treatments.  One left on the 17th.   Then we will go 3-4 months to see how she does.  I am so glad I finally went that way.

Onto Bosch.  He had entropian surgery for his eyes at the end of July after fighting for 3-4 months of eye ulcers.  He got sick a few weeks ago and we did some x-rays to make sure nothing was going on with tummy, liver, spleen etc.  I am so happy to say nothing going on there.  He also had some back pain with it.  We weren’t sure if it was the straining of getting sick that caused it or something else going on there.  In the x-rays we saw that he had a little arthritis or spondalosis (not spelled right) going on from l4-L7.  So we are treating him with some chiropractic and laser as well with a supplement called Tryxin.  The Tryxin helps keep everything lubricated.


Snickers turn. She has been limping on her left front leg for a few weeks so we did the rest thing.  Doing a sedated x-ray.    I think I posted earlier in the summer about finding a small cyst on her back.  Well it is growing.  We had it aspirated the day after I found it.  That just said cyst cells no cancer cells.  We are having it removed tomorrow and will be doing pathology on it.   I said if they had to sedate her they might as well put her under anesthesia and take the cyst.


So that has been our life in a nutshell for awhile.


Bosch & Snickers

    Glad things seem under control for everyone. It’s always something, isn’t it? Love to see Bosch’s gray face – something I also enjoy seeing on Nitro – it means they’ve survived to reach “maturity”. Paws crossed for Snicker’s upcoming vet visit…Angel Sassy will surely be looking down on her sister and watch over her.

    Note to the fluff trio. Let’s let Mom take a break here. Ok Michele they told me they’re going to work hard to stay healthy and happy so you don’t have to worry. As of today it’s going to be smooth sailing. Once Snickers is all done it’ll be so quiet at your house you’ll wonder what those three are getting into. Hugs to you my friend.

    Aww Sassy, dear, sweet Sassy. We are soooo grateful you came into our lives AND brought your Momma to us! You continue to live through your Mom as she continues to provide love and sullprt to all of us in your behalf.

    And Bosch helps keep Snickers and Jazz under control…as best he can anyway! You really sent your Mom a handful 🙂 And they certainly like to keep your Momma on her toes!

    Snickers! Geez! Sorry you have to hzve that cyst taken off, but we humans worry about those things. Pretty sure you’ll get some extra treats tomorrow though.

    As usual, these pictures are soooo cute! Your Rotties really know how to work the camera! Yeah, I love seeing Bosch’s handsome and distinguished silver muzzel. That close up of Snickers….SMOOOCH!!

    And SMOOCH to you my friend, and all Sassy’s pack! 🙂 Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

    It has been a true joy getting to know you and having your support this Summer. I pray that Bosch, Snickers and Jazz will give you a break from doctor visits! You must be exhausted!!! They have such beautiful faces. Just want to bury my face in their soft fur. Love my Tripawd family bunches which began with you!

    Sassy’s FOUR YEAR ampuversay? OMG how did that happen? Eeeek! Sweet Sassy, we all miss her but know she’s with us every day.

    And let me say that you are really keeping on top of all the pain management needs of the pack, BRAVO! I’m sorry you even have to think about it, but glad that it’s working for Jaz.

    Yay for nothing going on with Bosch but I had no idea about Snickers. I hope things are clear there.

    Whew. Your vet clinic needs to name a ward after you!
