What a handsome boy Greg is! Glad to hear he is out of surgery and doing well.

My Otis is 1/2 Great Dane and 1/2 English Mastiff.   He was 125 lbs when he was diagnosed at the end of December. The 1st couple of weeks were a little hard but he's so worth it.  He just had his 2 month Ampuversary and has been doing great and loves to run. Tripawds have a hard time walking slow.   

Hoping Greg has a speedy recovery.

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.

Hi Brian and Mr Greg 💗

Let me just say what a gorgeous doggie you are, love your picture 🐶💕

Me and my Great Dane girl Eurydice (77kg before amp) are soooooo pleased surgery went well and they are keeping him until for the first few days!

My girl came back 3 days after surgery and I could have got her 1 day earlier but just felt more reassured she was being looked after by pros during the first few days.

So now that the road to recovery has begun for your gorgeous boy, you will see how happy Mr Greg is going to be on 3 🐾🐾🐾

Eurydice has been deliriously happy and vigorously hopping for over 10 months now so no reason your cutie will be any different, right?

If you like to see how happy and fit she has been you can check the Anything Goes Forums and have a look at Eurydice's travels in Europe (5, 7 1/2 and 9 months after amputation), we've done 3 lots so far and hopefully will do some more travels to celebrate her one year mark, if she is still with us (fingers and paws crossed!)

Is Mr Greg a front or a back legger? 

Cannot wait to have updates on his progress and pictures, lots of pictures, too!

Sending you an avalanche of kisses and many, many cuddles to your handsome boy 😘😘💕🐶🐾💕

Greg is a front Amp and is recovering well still not allowed visit him but surgeon has said he is eating and drinking and going to the toilet which isn't surprised as Mr Greg is a massive foodie.

looking forward to getting him back house feels empty without him but this time has allowed us get non slip rugs and a special bed as well as a ramp for our car.

i will post a pic of Greg the day we collect him

thanks everyone again unreal support

Great to hear Mr Greg is progressing well 👌🏽 he'll be back home in no time !

Being a front legger you may want to use a t-shirt under a soft harness to protect the incision.

Eurydice wore t-shirts until stitches were removed 10 days or so after surgery. 

Sending you a big hug 😘

ABSOLUTELY GREAT news! :-):-):-)So glad you got to see Greg and he is doing so well! I know that's a huge relief! :-):-)And just so you know, sometimes the dogs have a bit of a crash once all the hospital meds have gotten out of their system. So if he's not quite as perky when you get him home as he is at the hospital, that may, indeed, be the reason.

And to hear that he's already up on three legs and handling it like a champ is spectacular! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Can't wait to see more pictures and can't wait to hear all about the homecoming! Good job everybody!

Hugs!

That's really good to hear!! Manni stayed for that amount of time, too, because of the fluid drain.

(actually, come to think of it: the amp was on a Thursday too and we didn't get to take him home til Tuesday 🙂 )

To a speedy recovery and a happy homecoming!! Keep us posted Brian!

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...
