Happy Holidays from Stella and Family
I think Stella's dreaming of flying before a certain sleigh... On Dasher, on Dancer, on Stella, on Vixen! Sorry I can't seem to post the video of Stella playing rock, I will later if it can! It's quite a sight. Goodnight all... and to all a go (More)
Stella update
Here's a picture of Stella doing quite well in the snow, just over two weeks post amputation. She's wearing a shirt in the house, but the air and sunshine do her good! (More)
Stella Blue 4 days post surgery
Here are some pictures from the past few days. We are grateful for incremental progress! (More)
Stella Blue
I can't seem to put photos in the forums, so I'm posting here! This is Stella Blue, our six year old German Shepherd rescue dog. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her left forelimb on 11/9, and is scheduled for amputation on 11/28. We love (More)

Hooray Missy! Looks like she landed right where she needed to be. Stories like this makes me grateful that animals have the ability to live in the moment, not in the sad past or the unknown future. Wish I would do that too! (More)
This is lovely. Thanks so much for sharing your experience. Of course you would do the best you can for him... But sometimes it's nice to hear an independent and unexpected acknowledgement of that fact. He looks like such a happy boy! (More)

  1. My min pin Tripawd has been on Galliprant for just over a month. While his pain is decreased, his appetite is also decreased and he sometimes feels poor enough to refuse his other meds. I also hear occasional sounds of gastric distress. Will take him for a follow-up this week to see if it’s the Galliprant and if so, what other alternatives are available.

  2. Emerson is a gorgeous boy with a big beautiful heart, and humans who love him to bits – right from the get go he’s always been a puppy with a can do- attitude, just like his humans Dee and Jez. Thanks for sharing his story – and the video – wow! he is one very happy doggie, I cried buckets when I saw it, it’s beautiful to see him running free (and up his usual mischevious self no doubt!)

    Thinking of you all, big hugs from us xxxxx

  3. Thank you all, and to Tripawds again! Sunday morning and we’re just back from Curl Curl again – a 34-degree Sydney morning, mind you, so a little hot for a black Labrador, half bouncing around and meeting other dogs, half slumped in the shade! In the last week he’s entirely regained his pre-op personality, and yesterday was so enthusiastic to go walking that he made it down all the 70 steps we have from our front door to the road (coming up them is still one of the goals to be overcome). Best of all, his biopsy has come back as being on the less aggressive end of the osteosarcoma scale, with a low chance of metastasising. Who knows, of course, but he’s certainly happy and pain-free at the moment, and back to focusing on when he might next be able to get food from us. Love to all – Jez, Dee & Emerson!

  4. This is the second time in my life with my boy, Jagen, that I have waited after a limp to bring him to the vet. I’ve had rotties since the 80’s and it seems that I spent more wasted time at vets then not. So in my great wisdom-twice-I waited hoping it’ll work its way out. First cost me a second ligament tear on the opposite leg
    and misery for my boy and now delayed bone cancer diagnosis. If I’d of brought him in sooner…….they are so stoic! He doesn’t act like he’s in pain. I will never, ever do anything like that again. With the bone cancer, he started limping and I thought his nails were the problem. He’s super active and a jumper. No other signs. If I’ve a forever rottie owner like I am, I will now no better. Once he wouldn’t put his foot down and he wasn’t going towards better the answer to get to my vet was clear. So, now I’m posting on the post page for Tripawds. Thank you and also my thoughts are with all of you who are working through this along with my baby boy and I . I’ve learned a lot and we’re finding help during this unusual time. This is a new hiking trail we’re on. He’s with me and I’m sure we’ll experience some pretty interesting and life changing things here too. The Best to Everyone and your Babies. Jagens mom, Sherri

  5. I pick up my 7 year old baby boy today at 11:00. This boy, the love of my life is a rottie who rescued me when he was 6 months old. He “had” bone cancer and is now a special Tripawds like all the other wonderful babies I’ve been reading about these past few days. All of you and your Tripawds have helped me so much with your stories. I don’t have to tell you how difficult this decision is with so little “expected”. Thank you for helping me believe its a good thing and understand more why. I’m home finishing this post, Jagen is sleeping. He walked into the vets exam room after crying for me in the kennels as happy and normal looking as if he’d been boarding there. I’m amazed how he can manage. I’ve got to get some weight off of him. It is the right decision. Soooo, I’m on my way with my boy on this Tripawd journey. Never did I ever imagine this. I’m overly blessed by my boy and the support I see for us on this site. All of you and your furbabies have made a big difference in mine and Jagens life. Today, Day 1
