Toddy has had a busy afternoon!  New treats galore to snack on 🙂  We visited the bunny nest but didn't terrorize them today. Went for a short walk , waited on the front porch for his brothers to get of the bus and ice cream!! He took off after our youngest as soon as he walked in the yard! And I got a picture!

David, Rocky definetly sent him a boost. ❤️ His bark was even back to normal!!!! He has been a fighter today! 

Sally... we put his water bowl on the floor and that did the trick with the water drinking. His surgeon would gladly do the surgery....but the location of them isn't good. It's really close to his spine and he already has cervical issues. This cancer is so frustrating, herwe went over a lot of different options.  We decided not to risk the surgery and just give him the best days possible!!! 

XOXO

Heather and Toddy ( soundly sleeping after today's adventures ❤️)

oh,  guess who is getting a Birthday Party tomorrow....shhhhh ...it's a surprise!!! claplaughing

What an awesome picture! 

Hope he had an even better day today. I mean, it is his birthday after all. It's mandatory to have good days on your birthday. 

David and Rocky

Rocky had his right front leg amputated on Valentine's Day 2017 after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma.

He joined the September Saints on September 3, 2017.

He is the toughest, bravest, sweetest and best friend I'll ever know.

Toddy had a fabulous Birthday Party! Love his new rabbit big-grin  I will have to post a picture tomorrow. He has had several good days. Our youngest is having a really hard time with his declining health . He's occasionally refusing treats and his medicine  (which for Toddy is not a good sign , this boy has never refused anything to eat) . He hasn't had the best day today. Lots and lots of resting needed, guess he overdid with his party. He continues to help take the kiddos to school and even barked at the other dogs that had walked with their families. Just taking it one memory at a time.

xoxo

All this spoiling and  being immersed in special memory making days certainly can wear a tripawd oit!  And being on bunny patrol makes a tripawd extra tired!!

Now remember just because you celebrated his "birthday" this week, doesn't exempt you from celebrating his "birthday; next week

In the meantime, Toddy's boys can make him a cake this week to celebrate the bunnies moving out of his territory!! 🙂  I think it should be in the shs4pe of a bunny!! 🙂

Yeah, good days, "less good days"' being "food picky" sometimes (especially if meds are anywhere nearby!), just lart of the "new normal" during this phase of the journey.

Toddy is STILL BEING RODDY, even at a "reduced" level.  I love that he enjoys sending his boys off to school and greeting them when they come home.....soooo sweet.  Continue to make memories and enjoy your time together!  And video him barking at the other dogs....that's a really cute memory to have, especially with his barking!

Looking forward to his lawty pictures.....and lots more! 🙂

Hugs and @ove to all

clapBRAVO! Heather that is so well said. I love this. And I'm super thrilled that Toddy got to enjoy another birthday and is holding his own. What a strong boy! No doubt it's because of your pawsitivity, I know this is helping tremendously. You've been on my mind, I'm glad you checked in. Can't wait to see photos of his new wabbit!

By the way have you seen these kids books about coping with cancer and loss? Maybe they will help:

Thank you guys!  I appreciate your support and guidance so much!  Jerry, I will definitely check out the books.  I have started the Beezer and Boomer book. 

Today did not start out well.  Toddy refused to eat, didn't initially want to move around much at all and was just very despondent.  He did decide to go to school with us once is brother asked him.  I then decided we needed to go see our regular vet to see if it was time or see if something else is going on.  Toddy of course was not having anything to do to the vet and after trying to bite her hand off he got a muzzle.  That told me right then and there that Toddy still has some fight in him and he is not ready yet heart.  I think he always tries to protect "mom" at the vet , when they took him back away from me to do his blood work he was really calm and did not have any issues at all.  Oh, my sweet sweet boy.... he just keeps making more and more precious memories for me in the years to come.  His blood work did show an infection.....he has WBC in his urine.  So, on antibiotics we go.  He has had a lazy, restful day and lots of loving.  He fin ally did eat a hot dog and some lots of doggie cookies. 

Pawty Pictures!!!!

What adorable, precious photos Heather, thanks for taking time to post. Toddy got the pawty of the century!

It's no wonder he felt crappy, those infections can do that. How awesome that your vet was able to detect it so quickly and get treatment under way. I hope he's feeling better today. Give him a big smooch from all of us kiss

Toddy has made it to his 2 month ampuversary! He says thank you for all the love!  The tumors continue to grow and his favorite thing to do is to cuddle.  He's a very picky eater these days. We have been taking short walks beside our house and he has made some new fur friends.  

He is still getting around fairly well but it takes a few minutes to get up and going. We are still taking it one day at a time and soaking up every moment we get to spend with him.

xoxo

HAPPY TWO MONTH AMPUVERSARY TODDY!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂    And were cheering for more!!! 🙂 🙂

You're doing a bang up job of staying in the moment and making every moment count!!!  Not easy, nope, but your love is so strong for Toddy it makes you'll atay in the flow of the moment...just like Toddy does!  No worries, just enjoying the bliss of being together!

Just read an article on how letting dogs is not only soothing and calming for humans but, of course, it is for dogs also.  And the article basically said talking to ojr pets in all our loving tones was nice, but being petted is what they preferred over anything!

SO KEEP ON CUDDLING WITH MR CUDDLES! 🙂      Enjoy your little adventures oitside Toddy while sniffing all the scents nature has to offer. 

Now, this is a good update to know Toddy is still enjoying Toddy....but we NEED pictures!!!   We need our CUTENESS FIX!!

TWO MONTH AMPUVERSARIES call for another pawty with ice cream, steak smothered in cheese, pizza crust smothered in cheese (warm, not cold) and some stinky liverwurst!  Oh, have you tried Fresh Pet?  It's in the refrigerator section (pet section) in Whole Foods and also Target.   Bet he'll like that!

Lpts of hugs and cuddles!!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
