Hoppy eleven month Ampuversary Grover! Isn’t it amazing how things can seem to pass by so quickly yet seem like they have always been? I am so glad that all in all Grover is thriving, that is the most important part of this journey. Getting as much quality time as life will allow us. 

Sounds like and ice cream and cheeseburger (maybe, lol) kind of celebration night! Keep kicking butt!

Big hugs,

Jackie and Huck sp_hearticon2

Happy 11 months Grover! I think Grovet deserves more toys!

When I clicked on your page, Brownie’s Banner poped up. I think Brownie is congratulating Grover as well.

Here is to many more!

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

365 days ago we had *no* clue what the next year would hold. We had just finished one of our regular and much beloved hikes looking out over the the PNW. In 2 days he would come up non weight bearing lame walking around the block and in 5 (360 days ago) we would get the dreaded diagnosis. We had no idea that we would about to face weeks of fear and heart break – and amid those heart wrenching weeks that would also have a year of fun, love and learn to Be More Dog

Yesterday, Grover got what I jokingly call a “dane-o-gram” or in other words a full Dane CT. The good news – he is still free of visible pulmonary metastases, his rib metastasis is stable and no other osseous lesions were identified in his legs, spine or other ribs. The bad news, the reason that we went hunting as best we could for evidence of metastases, is that the tumor coming from his colon is still there. A hard days decision but we’ve decided to go forward and remove it surgically. It’s likely unrelated to his osteosarcoma and there is a good chance that removal will be curative without follow up chemotherapy (we will find out more when they get the histopath back on the tumor and know what it is). 

A piece of me was really annoyed that this dog can fight osteosarcoma and get a different cancer. Seriously universe? But, I suppose, that another way of looking at it is that we are lucky to have made it so far that we actually have the privilege to worry about diseases that are not osteosarcoma. Not everyone is that lucky – so ultimately, we are thankful. 

We don’t have a surgery date yet but expect it will be in the next couple of weeks. We are hoping for a smooth procedure and recovery … he has more rabbits to chase and cheeseburgers to eat. 

Thanks to everyone here for all you do and all of your encouragement. We may not have made it through those initial hard weeks without you!

Whaaaa? A YEAR? ONE YEAR ALREADY?! Wow Grover, you just made it look so easy. CONGRATULATIONS! smiley_clap

I’m so hoppy for you. This is such an inspawration to everyone who is new to the cancer journey and especially those who have been told that their dog isn’t a good candidate for life on three legs.

And while it definitely sucks that you’re going in for that other nasty cancer tumor removal, I have all the faith in the world that you will bounce back from that surgery and once again show cancer who’s boss. 

You’re the boss Grover! HOPPY AMPUVERSARY!!!!!

And yes, how about some pictures! Maybe a blog update with all the party trimmings? Wheeeeee! PAWTY! smiley9sp_hearticon2

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
