Beautiful  Nova mastering the stairs!  This us at about 6 1/2 weeks post amp.  I love how she is so careful and actually rather gentle with each step down.  A very smart girl😎

And then politely takes her trest as a reward for a job well done!   She really has hsd a remarkable recovery.

She is such a cutie, workin' hard for those treats. I'm glad those stairs and the landing are carpeted, that's super important so she doesn't slip. smiley_clap

Here's our tripawd bathing beauty  Nova soaking up the sun.  Ahe looks so relaxed and content.  Had to do a close up too because she has such beautiful  golden eyes.  And I know you want to smooch the mug!

Just wanna make a tiny correction today she goes for her last chemo (5/10/23)  I thought it was the last time. She did her bloodwork on Monday now does chemo today hopefully so far so good.

I was over there yesterday and I playing with her. Provided the chemo happens today then we wait it out 21 days and then I think shes officially cancer free not sure how it works with dogs and as for the training hahaha yea she's got my mom leash whipped hahaha

NOVA UPDATE: As you all know Nova had her last chemo treatment last week. And after she finished her chemo she was celebrated at the vets with a Doggie goodie bag filled with treats and her certificate of completion of chemo and she had to ring a bell before they left and so her daddy had to rang the bell for her and all the staff cheered her on and came out to congratulate her. Now middle the following week and she's lounging around letting her last chemo take it's course. Still her bossy, stubborn demanding self and has a great appetite and drinks like normal etc she's pretty much herself. Mom's noticing she's doing things better and easier without the bad leg. Her next course of action is every 3 months for CT scans for a year then 6 months for a year then she's done.
