It’s only 35 minutes from Calais to Folkestone but there is nothing to do and nothing to see …

I did miss my bone when I was away …

And just like all other tripawds I can demolish any bone, even as big as this winker

That’s all for now, folks clown

Mom is taking me for a PET scan tomorrow so I sense she is a bit nervous …

I overheard her saying she will discuss with Kelvin, my oncologist, whether I should have it done or not.

She mentioned something about general anaesthesia and a contrast which will be used if I do the scan … 

Anyway …

For me, it’s all good as I’ll get to see Kelvin and his team at the hospital again, I absolutely love them all heart

Normally I don’t talk about my dreams in detail but what I am dreaming about right now is so sweet that I had to share it with you …

I am dreaming I’m in the living room holding my pink bunny in my mouth and then Mom is talking to me with that voice of hers which is a sweet as honey …

What a lovely, lovely dream ….

Okah, I’m having terrible withdrawal from not getting my daily dose of smile making videos and photos of our EURYDICE!!

Just because you’re home doesn’t mean that exempt you from posting photos of ojr beloved Miss Cow!!

BTW, what was her demeanor when she got home? Did she seem extra excited to be home, or more like….just another vacation day at home! Clearly she loves being on her bed with her big chew bone! Love that video!!

I bet Eurydice is missing all the attention she’s been getting while on her vacation, as well as missing going places where no dogs are allowed!! You need to take her out in the public so she can have complete stra ges smile and come over and pet and hug her! 🙂

Loooooove the pink bunny and the HUGE bone videos!! She’s soooooooooooooooooooo happy!!

MORE PICTURES!!!!!!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Hey Clare and Sally 💜💙

Yes, we’re back but not for long.

Following the PET scan findings we are heading to Portugal for Christmas and then on to the South of France, Lyon and Geneva. 

We must be back by the 10th January for her next chemo treatment and another PET scan a few weeks after. 

Eurydice has been receiving presents in the mail since we arrived and in some cases I don’t even know who sent them, like the yummy liver biscuits that walked through the door directly to her mouth today 🍪👅🐮. 

There are so many lovely human beings out there I feel humbled that Eurydice is so loved 💖 and the fact some gifts are sent without any record of the sender shows me these are genuinely kind people who take pleasure knowing she will enjoy their gifts. 

We also have another surprise to share with you.

Back in September we met Astrid and Ronald at Guincho beach and we got in touch recently. It turns out they will be in Portugal for New Year (Ronald’s brother lives there with his family and three dawgs) so we were invited to visit all of them on our way to Eurydice’s breeders. 

I am still determined to make every day a marvellous day for my girl regardless of how many are left.

And will, of course, document her trip right here on tripawds. 

Stay happy and well, sending you much, much love and cuddles to your cuties plus woof woods from miss cow 

💖💖💖💖💞💞💘🐾🐮
