Name: Nick
Bio: This is a blog page dedicated to the story of Diggs, a 78 pound, 11 year old, Shepherd mix who was diagnosed with bone cancer at the beginning of 2018. In March of 2018, I was left with no choice but to take his front left leg to stop the cancer from spreading to the rest of his body. This is the story of Diggs and his transformation into the perfect "Tripawd".

Day 11: Stairway to eleven (Diggs takes the stairs)
Today is Thursday, Day 13. Diggs spends most of his day sleeping in odd positions. He has 4 more days worth of medications left. I'm interested to see how things change once he is off the meds. He is obviously upset about what has happened to him. (More)
Day 5: On the bed!
I have to apologize for not posting more often but life beyond our Tripawd has been nothing short of crazy. We are moving 2 houses into 1 in a week. Pure chaos. Diggs still can't take the stairs but this morning he did climb into our bed, camped o (More)
Day 2: Waking up is hard to do
Yesterday (Sunday) was Day 2. I moved his bed in next to ours that night. I woke up pretty regularly to check on him. He had been shifting around on his own without a peep but ultimately stayed in his bed the entire night. Yay drugs! The mornin (More)
Day 1: Sleep, eat, pee, repeat
Well, day 1 went just fine. Diggs spent most of the day laying in his bed enjoying the Nick & Amy food delivery service. His medicine schedule is pretty easy to deal with and I've been rolling the pills in peanut butter which has been even fun (More)
Yesterday was crazy difficult but... At 3:30pm we got the call that Diggs handled the surgery like a champ! The leg was removed without issue, he handled the anesthesia just fine, and they were able to remove the spleen and biopsy the liver wit (More)

Glad to hear the surgery went well! We are on Day 6. I don't know that I am yet qualified to give advice. Currently I am making a big deal out of every step he takes. I try to push him a bit further every day. I have a sling that I use to help take some of the pressure off of him. Otherwise, I am trying to be patient and take every day as it comes. (More)
Thanks so much for being so supportive. Diggs and I are sending positive vibes your way. We can't wait to hear all about Cookie! (More)
Debra & Layla, I'm not crying, you're crying! Haha Thanks so much for sharing your story with us. I'm so glad to hear that Layla is doing so well. My nerves are shot but we are going to be just fine. He will likely recover faster than I will. You are an angel for caring and we wish you both the best. Diggs & Nick (More)
Hey Jerry! Thanks so much for the warm welcome! Diggs and I are as ready as we will ever be for this part of our journey but knowing that we have support from the Tripawds community definitely helps take the edge off. If there is anything I can do to help promote Tripawds please let me know. Your newest friends, Diggs & Nick (More)

  1. The line about balancing on two to pee … lol.

    Wonderful song!

  2. I really wish I didn’t have to search and find this site. But it gives me a little comfort having come across it. I just came back from the neurologist with my almost 10 year old baby boy Riley. Three weeks ago he seemed to be having pain in his lower back and back legs. Xray only showed arthritis but didn’t explain the pain he seemed to have. Pain meds and muscle relaxer weren’t doing much either. He was crying and whining a lot not wanting to get up to use the bathroom. Yelping if he moved to quickly getting off his bed. Went to an orthopedic surgeon last week and he didn’t find anything. Neurologist visit today and they did an mri and found a tumor in his vertebrae. They said they can’t do a biopsy because it’s too risky, same with surgery because it’s too invasive. So basically no treatment options…just meds and steroids, and possibly radiation, to help his pain. I’m devastated. Was not expecting this at all. I thought he was having pain that would go away or arthritis that could be maintained.

    • Delfina and Riley, we are so sorry to read about the diagnosis. Radiation therapy (especially Stereotactic Radiation Therapy) can often do a lot for palliative care situations, we hope that it can help Riley enjoy more quality time with you. We are keeping you in our thoughts and sending lots of love. Our hearts go out to you.

  3. Okay, am I the only one who’s a blubbering mess right now??? Not even sure why! I guess when something so beautiful and done wth such heart touches your Soul, sometimes the tears of gratitude flow ❤❤

    And then you chuckle about the bragging rights to being able to PEE ON THREE!!

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

    • I hope you’re crying hoppy tears Sally! Glad you liked it. Imagine how we felt when we saw them do it live for the first time? Unforgettable!
