Just a little note to say that Caira Sue has passed the 4 month mark since her amputation and she's still doing awesome. Ok, so we heard rumor of a tiny met in her lung--but we aren't letting it slow us down. She hasn't noticed a thing. We keep living it up day by day. Thanks everyone for being out there as a great support!

That cheering you hear from just over the Dublin Grade is our entire family celebrating. Each and every day is very special, but reaching such a wonder milestone as 4 months is worthy of an extra special celebration. So we will be toasting tonight, having special meals, extra hugs, and for Cherry a ride in the truck (we all know that for her that is the best celebration) all in our jubilation that our warrior/clown Caira Sue has reached another great ampuversary. One thing though - KEEP ON ROCKING!!!
With great anticipation of many more Ampuversaries for Caira Sue,
Bob & Cherry

Congratulations. While the one year club celebrates their many upcoming anniversaries, we can form the four month club (I hit the mark later this week - Nov 15). But I was sure you came on board after me. Are you truly a four-monther? Did your amp precede your arrival at tripawds? Apparently the human memory starts to wane when the dog has cancer.
In any case, let's live it up this week!
