I'm so sorry. Nasty, stupid bastard cancer.
For now he’s happy and he’s comfortable and he doesn’t know there’s anything wrong.
It is for us to carry the worry and stress, Domino gets to keep being Domino! As hard as it is don't watch the calendar, I did that when they told me Maggie had 6 to 9 months. There is no 'set in stone', there is no 'date stamp' or 'expiration date' anywhere. It took me awhile to realize that Maggie was living her life while I was waiting for her to die.
Every day will be Domino's best day because you are together.

Domino and Cassie, I also want to swear up a bloody storm against this bloody disease! I have a huge filthy vocabulary and I’m usung it all for you!!!
Cassie, I am going to say this again... you are an incredible Mum and an inspiration to us all! The lesson here... Never give up! If there is even a minute chance that our fur babies can be given a better life, then Carpe Dium! (Seize The Day!) Domino is living the life of a prince with you and he is soooo deserving of you! He came into your life for a reason and his journey isn’t over yet!!! If you hadn’t done the most recent surgery, then maybe you wouldn’t still be with Domino.... he is all about loving you... you are doing the very best that you can! Don’t give up hope sweetheart, he’s still here with you and he needs to feel that you are with him in this moment, right now...
hugs and cuddles and lots of love coming to you and Domino. That very special and beautiful boy!
kisses from Stewie👅🐾
& all the very best from his adoring pack,
Petra, Paul, & his feline siblings, Mr. Spike, Chester Molester & Miss Lily 🐾🐾

Unreal. Freekin' unreal. I am so very sorry, this is just a nasty, random and mean disease. I can't believe this dog who has endured so much in his life is now affected. Osteosarcoma was once thought of as this 'big dog' disease, but through the years what we've seen here is that it no longer fits the profile of what it's "supposed" to do. Now we've seen it all. And it makes me want to scream. I'm really sorry Cassie.
All I can even think of right now is how lucky and beautiful it was that you came into his life when he needed a human the most, and you believed in him. You gave him a chance when others weren't sure about him, you knew in your heart that he could thrive on 3 legs and he HAS. Domino and you are an incredible team and now, not even this stupid disease can touch that.
Love him up. Make each day count. Please don't feel guilty that you aren't doing chemo or radiation, that is perfectly OK. Dom only wants you to be with him and be happy. And remember that it's entirely possible he can prove that prognosis wrong. I hope with all my heart that he does.
We are all sending the power of the Tripawds nation to you both, so that he may have many great days ahead. Let us know if we can do anything at all, answer any questions, whatever, OK?

Thank you all so much for your love and support! It means a lot to have so many people understand what it’s like to go through this.
I am going to switch Domino to a lower carb food and he will stay on Rimadyl and Gabapentin indefinately. He has been cleared from his surgery to do all of his favorite things, we actually just got back inside from a roll in the grass and a game of fetch. I see a nice fall hike in our future and maybe even a surprise beach trip. It’s so hard to not think about the future and him not being here, but I’m trying my best. We are currently planning a big photo shoot for the end of the month with a photographer so we can capture some happy memories to keep forever.
Everytime I look at his crooked face and nubbin tail I can’t help but smile. We’ve been through so much together and I’m looking forward to having blast with him with the time we have left.
thank you again to all of you for your love and support
Cassie and Domino

Domino had his left front leg amputate on May 13th 2014 after being hit by a car. He's now living a happy healthy life on three legs :)

Everytime I think of you & him right now I cry. I got your thank you note in the mail today and it was my honor to help. I would do anything to take this away and help. I am glad you have a photo shoot planned and I sure hope you share those pictures with us.
You have done such a great thing for this special boy and I for one am glad I got to meet him in May.
