Thank you everyone for the kind words and support that you given me it has really helped  

Tanks run today he went really well for  himself he is getting fitter he would have done close to a kilometre today or half mile and his wound is only about 1cm round now so we’re close to it being healed and ready for the next part of helping him learn to swim again and running down the cane farm 😀

Fantastic!  Go, Tank, go!

On October 27, 2016, nearly 6 months after amputation, and 18 months since his cancer likely started, we lost Pofi to a recurrence of Soft Tissue Sarcoma in his spine quite suddenly.  His Daddy and I miss him terribly along with his canine sister, Mia, and two feline siblings, Lucia and Cliff.

Aww Tank is so fun to watch! He must really enjoy getting around now and being with his pack.

Keep a close eye on him so he doesn’t overdo things. It’s always wise to make a Tripawd take breaks during long walks and playtime so there are no set-backs or injuries.

Give him a big hug from us!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

I went to take tanks girls to the cane farms yesterday for a run and I was gong to leave him home as he had been going for a run and picking up his fitness every day this week but as soon as I picked up the keys he wouldn’t back down he wanted to go no matter what so we ended up down there i put his tracker on him as he has a tendency to go far and wide down there so just incase I wanted to know where he was if he took off which he didn’t but he absolutely had a ball he ended up doing 2.29 Klm at 5.9 Klm an hour or 1.4mile at 3.6milr an hour he was happy to be there you could see the smile on him and we took a few breaks in between and he had a lay in some puddles to cool down where he wanted to.When we got home he had the the happy strut going and was full of beans so at dinner time all the dogs do tricks before dinner I haven’t asked him to do any since he has been home as I didn’t think it was fair on him but as he is always first fed he sat and then threw his paw up to shake so I’m glad i took him down there it helped him mentally and was a good confidence booster so he has been shaking his paw since he wasn’t sore this morning just a bit sleepy from the endep this afternoon he was getting back to the old tank being hard headed and demanding everything he wants and forcing his way inside he’s learnt to open the door again and butt his way through the baby gate so here is a video of tank shaking he is still inside refusing to go out but I will let him get away with it he’s no trouble.

Tank looks great!  Love you videos.

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

Tank now at 4 weeks his wounds are all healed now and his fur is starting to grow back he’s been a rat lately we took him to the pet expo in the weekend he faired well it was hot and a lot of dogs were there so it was a good socialisation for him to relearn how to be around other dogs he was fine with the butt sniffing that was going in but I could tell he would get upset when another dog went near his amputation and a lot of people that were there are not up to scratch with dog etiquette and introduction so when another unaware owners dog would go to sniff at his amputation I was putting a bag in between to break contact and move on with out confrontation as we all know unfortunately not all people are careful minded we lasted about 2 hours and tank was starting to fatigue so a few rests and drinks we took him home it was a big day for him here is a video I took of him again at the borrow pits.

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

 Tank is getting around really well now he still doesn’t play with the others there too ruff for him when they play he is still on endep I think he will be ready to ween off soon the phantom pains and muscle trembling have stopped as far as I can tell and he is a lot more playful with me as well he had a fall the other day and it hurt him for a while but after a night rest he came good again he hasn’t been close enough now to video as he is always working ahead on our walks and when he has enough he goes back to the ute so this is just as short video on our way back he is jumping up with out a problem
