I figured I should start a new topic that wasn't titled I'm Devastated. I wanted a place to share our new happy memories, and a place to post pictures for Sally of course! 

Domino can finally play fetch! We've avoided it since I found the tumor and yesterday the doctor said he could play again. Domino was so excited!!! I should've have taken a video, I need to get into the habit of taking more videos and pictures. We played fetch until Domino said he was bored, but I haven't seen his nubbin wag that fast in a while lol. 

I took some pictures today for the Tripawds calendar and I thought I'd share my three favorite ones here for Sally! I'll continue to post more pictures as I take them of us having fun.

DOMINO!!!.  LOVING THIS NEW THREAD TITLE!!:-) 🙂 🙂 🙂

And hearing that his nubbin' tail is waggin' fast again and he's playing fetch...grinning ear to ear over here!!! 🙂

I am beyond thrilled to these SPECTACULAR  pictures!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂  He is soooooo darn handsome AND adorable!! 🙂 🙂

That one of him rolling on his back just sparkling with the bliss of' it all....loooove it!!  Actually, this is a great set up for his next photo shoot with one addition!  We need a selfie of you two laying side by side on your backs grinning ear to ear! 🙂 🙂

Question:  How on earth do you keep that boy's tummy looking so pristine white???  It's photoshopped right?  No dog could have such beautiful fluffy white fur without so much as one single dirt clump, poop smear, or mats!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂   Actually, having seen him in person, I just happen to know he is one perfect specimen of a meticulously groomed young man!!

Keep em coming Cassie!!   Itsw such a powerful reminder of how blissfully happy Domino is! 🙂 🙂

Lots of love

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

PS...Good luck in just picking "one" for the calendar!!   I do love the ones with his trademark ear position.  

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!

OOOMMMDDD!!!  I didn't even notice his jaw!   I had to go back and look for that little bit of a "crooked smile"!    I can't believe it is so barely noticeable!!   This Domino guy is such an inspiration on sooo many levels!!  He's one tough dude!!!

YESSSS! I love the pics of that crazy happy boy of yours, and I love your attitude about the situation. I know it's sooo hard to be strong and courageous and follow the fun when you just got the cancer news, but you are doing GREAT my dear and your gorgeous Dom is so darn proud, as are we. This is not an easy way to be, but you are doing it with grace and joy. Always be proud of that.

Thank you for sharing! More please! xoxo

clapsuperstarlaughing Domino, you look great!

I loved life as a tripawd for over three years following right forelimb amputation due to an aggressive and recurrent hemangiopericytoma. I reclaimed my place among the gods and valkyries in Valhalla on November 11th, 2020. My parents miss me tremendously, but I know they'll keep me in their hearts forever... and don't worry, I've approved my mom's use of my Tripawds account.

Sorry I haven't updated yet!! It's been a crazy few days. I've been working a lot, we had a yard sale for Domino yesterday, and we also got sad news that we had a death in the family yesterday, so it's been a bit crazy. 

As far as Domino goes, he's been doing great. He's super playful, he loves his new food, and has been more cuddly than ever! 

I have had a few emotional moments, usually when I'm by myself. I've had multiple crying fits, just thinking about everything. I try not too but it's so hard. Whenever I'm with Domino I'm ok. 

I don't have any pictures to share today (i've been too busy to get them uploaded), but I promise I'll share some sometime this week! 

Oh and on a side note I got to see Karma a few weeks ago!! I drove down to Atlanta to get a few things from her and it was so nice to see her again (and love on her fur babies of course). 

Until next time! 

Cassie and Domino

YOU KEEP ROCKIN' DOMINO!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂   You are such a strong and determined dog who knows how to keep on plowing through life without a care in the world!! 🙂   You definitely are made of "the right stuff"!  And so is your Mom! 🙂  
I'm really glad you got to connect with Karma.  I know it was uplifting to see her and to see her pack again.  I soooo hope you have some pictures!   I certainly understand your hands have been full, so just post when you get a breather.   I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one.  Not an easy time.p for you.
However, it's wonderful to hear how well Domino is doing!  Remember, DOMINO IS NOT A STATISTIC!! 🙂   This cutie pie has a spunk that isn't factored into the "average" numbers.  He is waaaay above average! 🙂  
Lots and lots of love to all.
 Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

Cassie! It's great to hear from you and know that Dom is holding strong. I'm so sorry about your family member though, that has to be difficult on top of everything else.

You sound like you are definitely following Domino's lead and living in the moment, appreciating every moment with that handsome pup. It's not easy and certainly you're allowed to show your anger and sadness. The situation sucks. I know I'd be a wreck. But wow I'm so impressed, it sounds like you are showing the entire pack that you have been a good student, taken lots of notes and passing the Be More Dog test with flying colors. Nice work!

I'm happy you and Karma connected, she is such a sweetie and so are you. I wish I lived nearby so I could give you and Dom a hug so this will have to do {{{{{{hugs}}}}}

P.S. remember that if it ever gets to be too much you can vent to us via the Tripawds Helpline OK? 

xoxo

OH Cassie I'm so sorry to hear about your family member..hugs to you!  Sounds like our boy Dom is doing well!  He's such a warrior and so spunky!  Love that boy and I feel blessed I got to meet him and you and your "pack". As always I'm still sending prayers that all will stay stable for a long long time!  So glad you were able to hook up with Karma.....she's one in a million....not to mention a great cheerleader!  Remember you and Dom are never alone on this journey we are all right there with you my friend!
