Were we crazy to take Paris with us?! It seemed like a really good idea, but there were concerns about the altitude and what problems that may mean to her with lung mets. We got a blessing on the trip from Dr. Pam and our vet at home, Dr. Terry. The biggest issue might be tiring more easily, but that it would be great for her spirits to be with us on a 2 week trip to Colorado. We had the honor of meeting up with Wyatt Ray , Rene & Jim in Fort Collins, Colorado.

We had a wonderful trip. Paris did great, she got to do and go on so many adventures and went to visit friends and family. Now that we are home in northern Indiana she is looking at me….like where are we going…… what are we gonna do today……where is the excitement??!! It is hard to believe, but Paris will celebrate her 10 month ampuversary on 11-5-09. We are so blessed!!

Here is a link to a short youtube video…..

Grateful for every moment we had with Paris…..no regrets!

Honoring her life by opening our hearts & home to Addy!

I really enjoyed watching your You Tube videos of Paris, Wyatt and friends... Wish I could have been there with Jake too! Looks like you all had a great time... How old is Paris?

Jake's Mom

Jake, 10yr old golden retriever (fractured his front right leg on 9/1, bone biopsy revealed osteosarcoma on 9/10, amputation on 9/17) and his family Marguerite, Jacques and Wolfie, 5yr old german shepherd and the newest addition to the family, Nala, a 7mth old Bengal mix kittie. Jake lost his battle on 11/9/2009, almost 8 weeks after his surgery. We will never forget our sweet golden angel… http://jakesjou.....ipawds.com ….. CANCER SUCKS!

Paris had her 5th birthday in September, we got her at 2 1/2 years from our local shelter. Did Jake go swimming today? We have never had the chance to take Paris to the water..wonder what she would think?

Gineej & Paris,

Great photos and even better idea to take Paris along.  Cherry has always loved to take her trip no matter how long or short.  I will always remember her as a puppy jumping with joy, running to the car, and promptly vomiting just after the first turn.  This extreme car sickness has long since disappeared, so we can just smile when remembering.

You were justified regarding the altitude issue.  I have been told by my sister, who is an MD, that after chemotherapy the lungs do not have the same capacity as before chemotherapy.  She was realy worried about Cherry this summer as we went to Yellowstone for our annual month long trip.  Nearly all of her time was spent in West Yellowsont which is at 6650ft but she did make trips to the Upper Geyser Basis which is 7350ft.  Luckily, she never showed any problems with the altitude, but then too, we have no reason to believe that she has developed lung mets.

Again, enjoyed hearing about the visit and that Cherry is no the only one who loves to travel.

Paws Crossed and Sending Pawsitive Thoughts,

Bob & Traveling Cherry

Go Paris, Go! It was such a pleasure meeting you all too. Thanks for sharing our visit with the Tripawds community. We'll eventually get around to posting our video… Laugh

Here's one of the photos we were able to snap of speedy Paris having a blast at the dog park:

It looks like you had so much fun!  I think even if Paris did get tired a little  more quickly I think it is great that she was able to take the trip.
