Well that is PAWESOME he is not only doing well but got that medical issue under control. How scary it must have been for you! I'm so glad he has outstanding care and things are good again though. Hugs to your pack and Murphy the Magnificently Magical Tripawd!

Very cool!  We have a movie star in the Tripawds family!

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

MURPHY!!!! MURPHY THE ROCK STAR!! 🙂

This is soooo exciting!! What a great way to show the world how big dogs do just fine in three legs AND tht there is ALWAYS hope!!!

I know some of the viewers watching are facing the diagnosis for one of their dogs. MURPHY will be reaching people and raising awareness in so many ways!!

It's also a great way to give a shout out about all the invaluable information and support offered by TRIPAWD Founders, Jim and Rene!

Cannot wait to see a video of the clip!! GOOD JOB MURPHY!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Hugs!

Hi everyone!

Murphy updates 🙂 

So Murphy just had some more chest x rays done today and the prelim results look amazing no mets!!!!  He is looking good on the cancer front hooraaayy!!!

Onto the cardio front…He is doing amazingly so far on his meds. He is spunky, eating, and being silly and goofy again. I couldn't be happier. 

Finally we were both filmed at the beginning of Feb. for the CBS Sunday Morning show!! It will be airing March 12. I am so pumped about seeing it and that we were able to be a part of something so awesome!!

Hope you all have a great night

Murphy and Katrina

So glad I found your original post from last year.  Now I could read about Murphy's past and look forward to reading about his future for a long time to come.

Otis - 121 lbs pre amp - 114 lbs post amp and now 118 lb Great Dane - English Mastiff X.  Started limping on 12/24/16.  Diagnosed with Osteosarcoma 12/28/16 - amputation of front left leg on 1/6/17.  Stitches out and 1st round of Chemo on 1/19/17.   2nd round of Carboplatin on 2/10/17 - 3rd round on 3/2/2017.  4th round was scheduled for 3/22/17 - however due to low WBC postponed - 4th Chemo completed on 3/28/17.  Had breathing difficulties, stayed in Tufts ICU overnight.  Due for 2 more rounds of Chemo but we are opting to go with homeopathy with Dr. Loops instead.

oooh, now I get it!! that took me ages! Duh!! (*lampbulb lighting up in my head*)

Murphy was the one that Otis ran into at Tufts!! And mistook for Eurydice!!! HA!

(blame it on the haircolor, mine that is)

How cool is that!!!

(Katrina, don't forget to post the link of your Hollywood moment!!)

Guardian of Manni the Wonderdog. -Or is it the other way 'round?

Manni was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in Dec '15 and immediately had his right front leg amputated, followed by 5 rounds of chemo. Manni's real name is Manfred and he turns 10 on Jan 28 2017. So far we are mets-free...
