Great video’s! I am glad Godzilla is doing so well. Always puts a smile on my face to see a tripawd so happy walking/running/playing.

Wel it has been 1 year since our Godzilla became a Tripaw. OMG, where has the time gone? She is doing awesome. This has not stopped her or slowed her down at all. The ONLY bad thing out of this is when Godzilla has a scratch on the side of her head or neck she still tries to scratch it with her missing leg! It’s kind of funny to watch seeing that stump moving a mile a minute and the look on her face because the itch will not go away. LMAO Usually she will come over and lay her head on our lap and look at us with that sweet look of Pleeeease scratch my head! whateverShe is one great dog!!! Hear she is a couple of days ago.

She does look great, and somehow, the name Godzilla really seems to fit!   Ditto the comments on slowing her down a bit.  It is major surgery – we were told to restrict movement to short, leased potty breaks only until the staples came out (about day 10).   You might also find that she crashes a bit as the hospital meds wear off.   For many dogs, this happens around days 3 – 5.   And I definitely agree on the drive through cheeseburger thing!

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

Wheeee! Look out world, Godzilla is taking over!

Congrats on a year of so much progress. I looked back on your first few posts, sounds like nothing has slowed this amazing dog. Awesome!

OK, my prior post was idiotic – I wasn’t looking at the dates very closely.   Happy 1 year ampuversary, and obviously, she is doing great with her activity level!big-grin
