    My dog Sophie, 4yo, had her front leg amputated after a lawnmower accident. That was about 10 months ago. She still has phantom pain occasionally. But my main question is, whenever she’s standing, she’s almost constantly pulling the stump upward with her shoulder muscles (like a person would shrug with one shoulder). It seems to ache or strain in some way with no leg there to support the shoulder. Any ideas would be appreciated. I have not tried bandaging (like with an Ace) to support the stump or anything…

  2. Absolutely wonderful tale!! I love how Sadie “picked” you so many years ago. Dragging your mattress to the floor and hand-feeding her show just how much you love her! My 14 1/2 year old border collie has just been diagnosed with leukemia and will only be with me probably another month or so. I am filling his last days with hamburger patties, chicken, his favorite walks, dog friends and human friends both. Your story gave me inspiration – thanks so much for sharing it! Best of luck to you and Sadie. 🙂

  3. Update on Hazel:
    A couple of weeks ago, Hazel’s leg began to get much larger and developed a second lump. They told us that it is normal for the leg to get bigger as the bone is just trying to heal, but we suspected the latest growth was not good (she also started to favor the leg). We took her back to the California Veterinary Specialists Angel Care Cancer Center for evaluation. Unfortunately, it looks like the cancer is back at full force. Growing in the leg and also they found small growths in her lungs. After discussions with the staff, we agreed to do a second round of palliative radiation (traditional, not cyber knife) to try and buy her some more time without pain in the leg. They told us that most likely the lung growths would become a problem before the leg pain becomes too great. She is now on full pain med regiment. The radiation will take a few weeks to provide its pain relief. She is in good spirits, enjoying her normal day to day activities, but still favoring the leg a bit. We are hoping for more relief from the radiation in the next week or so. We hope for a month or two more of good quality time together. She will be 10 in August, which is not too bad for a Dane. Hazel and Proton send love and healing to everyone!

    • Thank you for filling us in Joel. We are sad to hear that she is facing this latest hurdle but really happy to hear she’s still in good spirits. All of us send lots of love and strength for many good days in Hazel’s future. Fight on Hazel! xoxo
