Today is Neiman's 2-month ampuversary, and he is doing so well! He is truly a champ! We celebrated this morning with a walk/jog down our street and back, and when I gave him his treat before leaving for work, he actually "shook hands" with me! He is such an inspiration and reminds me to not let troubling events keep me down.

yeaaaaa!!  My Franklin would sit up and give me his one paw too.. that is just awesome when they do that.  I have it on video.  Neiman looks great!  

Christine... with Franklin in her heart ♥

Franklin, he was the Happiest Dog on Three Legs! Diagnosed 09/26/2012 with Osteosarcoma, amputated 12/4/2012.  Had a wonderful 5 1/2 months painfree until he ran for the Bridge on 5/15/2013.  Always in my heart, and always a guardian angel of my pack...   You can follow his Tripawd Adventures, before and after, in my blog, Frank'n'Farter!

Whoop whoop!!!!

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!

Happy Ampuversary to handsome Neimanclap Lily and I send you hugs and chicken treats-actually, Lily just ate them all in Neiman's honor!

Joan and Lily

Our beautiful Lily was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her front leg on 12/14/11 at age 8 and had amp on 12/16/11. She completed 5 rounds of carbo. She was so brave and kicked cancer's butt daily! She lived life fully for 4 years, 3 months, and 15 days after her amp. My angel is a warrior princess. I miss her so much.
