Here’s Miss Cow in Sintra, Portugal, I am sooooo proud to say we did a ONE hour walk today.

Of course she had quite a few resting stops but we were out for one whole hour and the terrain was quite steep at some points (it doesn’t look like tit on the video) 

Yeeeeeeahhhhhh way-cool

Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

These photos are priceless and will bring back great memories in years to come. I feel like I’m on the trip with you.

I can feel the love in all the photos and videos, not only from you but from all who meet her – from the hamburger chef to your parents. Oh, your dear parents… Bless you for waiting to explain the cancer and amputation. I’m sure it saved them from lots of stress and worry and they now have some comfort seeing how well she (and you) are doing. Both of your parents had the best reactions – your mom’s optimism (gotta have faith) and your dad’s tears (a mixture of sadness and happiness). Know that their reactions are for love of their darling daughter.

Eurydice is so smart reading road signs. The next thing you know she’ll be behind the wheel!

Happy and safe travels. Looking forward to more photos, videos, and stories.

Kerren and Tripawds Kitty Mona

p.s. Where are her booties?

Hey everyboooooooody ❤️

Eurydice went for her first X-ray since her surgery and I am sooooooo pleased to report no mets anywhere to be seen 🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊 also ultrasound of heart, liver, bladder etc is clear 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉and blood was “better than mine” said the vet 😂

A day to celebrate 🍸🍸🍸🍸🍾🍾🍾💨💨💨

Eurydice did the X-ray without any sedation, there were 5 of us placing her in the right positions and we were all exhausted in the end but it was worth it!

She was also exhausted as you can see 😂

This calls for a very special Eureka dinner tonight 🍗🍖🍗🌭

Lots of love to all and cuddles right, left and centre ❤️🐾❤️🐾❤️😘

Here’s Eureka by Torre de Belem where the Portuguese ships departed to discover the world all those centuries ago …

Hey Kerren heart

Lovely to hear from you and thank you so much for your kind wordsheart

My parents are slowly recovering from the shock but Eurydice doesn’t get what the fuss is about !

She is full of energy and looks forward to whatever each day has to offer and I am overjoyed to be part of this, and also overjoyed to be able to share our happiness with you and all other pawrents.

Booties are used whenever we go for a long walk or where pavements are slippery, if we go for a short walk we skip them. 

Sending you lots and lots of love and cuddles to sweet Mona and Eli heart

Hey Sallyheart

Thank you so much for your sweet words, as alwaysheart

If I could find a bottle with a genius who could grant me two wishes, the first one would be for Eurydice to be cured and the second that all of you lovely pawrents and your furry fluffies would join us in our trip!

Can you imagine the fun clown!!!!! 

Sending you lots and lots of love and cuddles to your cutie pies heart

Thanks for sharing. Eurydice is bringing the joy to so many — you, the tripawd family, and strangers. That’s so powerful. Thank you Eurydice!
