Losing a leg to bone cancer is scary. But senior Tripawd osteosarcoma hero Cookie is here on Tripawd Tuesday to tell you “Fear not people! Just look at meeee!”
Here’s Cookie’s story as told by her human via Cookie the Dog on Instagram.
Cancer Can’t Catch Cookie the Tripawd Osteosarcoma Hero!
I’m a proud tripawd owner to my dog Cookie! She just recently lost her front leg to bone cancer, and is doing amazing!!
We had a scare because she had severe bruising on her stomach a few days after the surgery and we thought it was internal bleeding. But we took her to the hospital and she’s perfectly fine just scary.
This Senior Amputee Dog is Doing Great!
Cookie is 11 years old and is a boxer mix, and has a younger sister Dee who is a pit bull mix!! She loves running in the forest and is the sassiest dog ever but we love her for it😉 And now she is a tripawd and there were some complications at first but now she’s healthy and happy and back to her old self!!
This account and community has been so special throughout it all and I just wanted to say thank you!!!
