Tomorrow is Lucy's six week ampuversary!!!  She is doing great.  The last two weeks her fully personality has come back!  She's chasing the cat, always alert and excited for action.  Honestly nothing to complain about.  I do notice that she tends to sit and enjoy life more than tearing it up.  She was always so crazy, I think that may come back when her balance is back to normal.  I thought I'd add some pics so everyone can see just how great she's doing!

Lucy's front right leg was amputated 12/19/11. Thankfully there was no tumor, but her nerves were found to be degenerative.  Life as a tripawd is Lucy's new adventure!!

Isn't it just wonderful to see their personality return?  So good to hear that she' doing well!

PS - no, I can't see the pics...

Zeus was a Husky mix diagnosed with Osteosarcoma at age 11.  A visible lung met and suspicious spot on his liver meant a poor prognosis-six weeks was our vet's best guess. We decided to fight for our boy and his right front leg was amputated on 12/1/11. We did six rounds of chemo, changed his diet and spoiled him completely rotten. We were blessed with 10 great months after diagnosis. Against the odds, the lung met remained a single met and grew very little over those months. A wonderful furbaby with the most gentle spirit, he fought with a strength that we never imagined he possessed. We have no regrets...

Thanks Lisa, Charon, Maximutt, Maria and Daisy!!  Maximutt, Lucy likes things in order around here and Otis the cat doesn't agree with Lucy's rules.  Sometimes he gets away with it, but not today!

Mary, I tried to fix your photos after going to your FB page.  The photo link needs to end with a .jpg .   I couldn't find your photos on FB but they may be "private".

Congrats on the 6 weeks ampuversary and the return of her personality!

Treats all around! Everyone chase the cats!
Jackie, Angel Abby's mom

Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman. Tripawds blog, and a more detailed blog here. Please also check out my novel, What the Dog Ate. Now also in paperback! Purchase it at Amazon via Tripawds and help support Tripawds!

Six weeks is a wonderful milestone. It is amazing how quickly they recover, isn't it? Congrats to you and your baby!

— Beth Spirit Smilin' Sammy

Smilin' Sammy, March 16, 2004 – Dec. 5, 2011
Golden retriever, diagnosed with osteosarcoma in September 2010 — right front leg amputated November 2010. He fought valiantly to stay with us; but a second diagnosis of osteosarcoma, this time in his left front leg, was more than our golden warrior could overcome. He loved his pack — and everyone else he met.

We loved him even more.
Thanks for the pennies, Sammy. They helped.
