3 months ago our best friend Waldo had a swollen bump on his leg. A week later we found out it was bone cancer and we had to amputate his leg to stop it from spreading. He has a couple chemo treatments left but is now in remission! He loves to run and is faster than ever! He is amazing! #tripawds

It is so awesome to hear how well Waldo is doing! It gives others the hope they need to get through the toughest times.
Here's to many more great days, months, years ahead.

Oh my gosh, Waldo is just too adorable! Look at that happy, happy face! So glad for you all he is doing so well and delighted you have shared this with us!!
On October 27, 2016, nearly 6 months after amputation, and 18 months since his cancer likely started, we lost Pofi to a recurrence of Soft Tissue Sarcoma in his spine quite suddenly. His Daddy and I miss him terribly along with his canine sister, Mia, and two feline siblings, Lucia and Cliff.
