Was super excited to get an email informing that Tripawd calendars were complete and ready and learned that Fuzz made the cut for October 2020! He is now famous and and willing to do “pawtographs” as he is laying her all sprawled out grooming himself like a star! I just purchased 4 calendars for myself and to use as Christmas gifts!
Fuzz update: He is doing well.. still has occasional issue with what looks like having to readjust his shoulder (the amputated one) and when doing so cries out.. not sure how much is pain vs. frustration. He still gets around well but noticed he sometimes stumbles more as it seems he forgets he has only the one front leg. Still climbing, jumping and eating well. I put him back on his gabapentin at 3 x per day for a couple weeks and starting yesterday backed it off to twice a day for a bit to see how he does.. Today marks his 6 week ampuversary and I am actually so relieved at how well he has done overall. A couple blips, but by far his personality and antics are back to where they were before all this stupid cancer stuff entered the picture. The other night he was actually batting around and chasing (sliding on wood floor) a cat toy for quite a while.

Brownie – Mr. March
My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019. With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer. I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud! He will live forever in my Heart!
