ACL tear in right hind leg 12/5/12 and scheduled ACL repair surgery 12/21/12. Pre-op xrays revealed osteosarcoma. Amputation 12/28/12. Chemo (carboplatin) started Jan 10, 2013 and ended on April 5, for a total of 5 doses. He handled carbo like a champ! No side effects. We started metronomic therapy at his third chemo and have been also doing some holistic treatments. He's a lively, playful 10 year old huskie-boarder collie and a very proud member of the Winter Warriors! Our love. Our funny little guy!

Just love on her Sally which I know isn't a problem for you or Hannah to do. We know how you feel and that the wind is knocked out of you.

Oh salt. This just isn't right. Damn cancer. I'm pissed. I'm just just mad. But happy Hannah doesn't know. She's just going to keep begging for food like the happy hungry girl she is.
We love you guys. Were here for you.
