Hi All,

  Just a update to let you know Buster is still hopping around! It been over 112 days since we found out he had lung mets! This is just wonderful for us and to anyone who remembers that he may of only had 3 weeks to live (thats what they told us)

He is still on his oral chemo, NSAID, an occasional tramadol and certain supplements…

This bonus time has really been a miracle and God willing we may be celebrating his 1 year ampuversary!!!

Wishing everybunny on here a very  HOPPY EASTER!

Get Hopping,

Wonderful, wonderful news.  Yours is a great story of hope for all of us.  As I've said all along, no one knows when the last day will come.  The best a vet can do is an educated guess based on statistics and it warms my heart each time one of our tripawd pals proves them wrong.

Happy Easter to you and Buster, and many more!

Congratulations and we are sure this will be a happy and hoppy Easter.  It's amazing how much our love can accomplish isn't it.  I was just reading your last thread last night and wondering how Buster was.  Happy Easter – you can see the great color of Easter every time you look into Buster's beautiful eyes.  Live and love!
