Good bye bad leg, hello pink elephants! So happy that you and knoxx were able to get in at CSU. I love a vet with a sense of urgency.
As sally said get some rest while knoxx is in good hands. We’ll be thinking of you both today and sending lots of love.

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!
Ooooh we are thinking of you guys from across the state over here in Lake City! All paws, fingers, toes and tails crossed for a speedy recovery!
It’s interesting that he was not neutered and still developed osteosarcoma. After a landmark study indicated that Rotties who were spayed or neutered at a young age (below 1 year) are more pre-disposed to osteosarcoma than non-neutered dogs, I made a pledge that our next dog wouldn’t get neutered or spayed. Well, there goes that theory! See:
The Lucy Oncology Center was named after a lovely Rottie named Lucy, whose dad donated a bunch of money to redesign the CSU oncology center. What you are seeing today is a very different place than before. Here’s a post that talks about it:
P.S. My name is Rene, I’m Spirit Jerry’s mom!
Knoxx is doing well! He was in surgery for about 2 hours I believe. I have had a really nice tech keeping me in the loop all day. And she comforted me by telling me there is people around 24 hours. I cant wait to hear about how he is getting around tomorrow. I only cried a little bit after dropping him off. But I think mostly its because I am 7 months pregnant. And he is my baby. We are picking him up Saturday morning.
Rene- OMG. That is absolutely amazing. I had no idea! I feel even more lucky to have Knoxx in such great hands. Lucy was right. There is something special about that place. THANK YOU LUCY! And about the neuter thing, I know!! Just goes to show, cancer doesnt follow the rules.
And thanks everyone, not that I can take credit for how handsome he is.. but he really is 😎 but also, thank you for the good thoughts.
Yay! So glad that things went well. He’s on the road to recovery and will amaze you!
Yep, there is a Tripawd angel named Lucy who watches over all the critters in the CSU cancer center 🙂
Rest up as best you can. Keep us posted and give him a big smooch from us when you pick him up.
