I always forget to post things over here for those not on FB or those not reading the blogs, so if you’ve seen this I apologize….but I wanted to share some good news for those just starting their journey.

Yesterday, Charley celebrated his 33 Month Ampuversary (OS)!  He was diagnosed with OS at age 2-1/2, so he now has lived over 1/2 of his life as a Tripawd Warrior!

I’ve posted lots of new pictures of him (graying muzzle and everything) in his blog post from yesterday!  You’ll have to see the pictures of his beautiful amber eyes!  :)

I’m sending hugs to all of you and positive thoughts and prayers to all of your pups that are on this unwanted journey.

Hugs and chocolate Labby kisses,
Ellen and Charley

Amazing!  Congrats to you and Charley!  Beautiful boy. I have 2 chocolate labs and their eyes make me melt.  Charley is an inspawration!

Liberty (Libby) was diagnosed with OSA on 1-22-13.  Right front amputation on 1-31-13. No IV Chemo. Metronomic Therapy started 2-19-13 along with supplements and some home cooking. Lungs clear until 1-06-14.  She's still her happy, hoppy, bossy self.  Living the dog life to the fullest and a proud Winter Warrior. :) RIP my Libby 4-21-03 to 3-19-14

Awesome job Charley!! Wishing you many more ampuversaries. Keep inspiring and showing us how to beat this crappy disease.

Kathy

Tasha was a German ShepherdBorder Collie mix who was diagnosed with OSA at age 8.  On December 29, 2011 she had her front right leg amputated and received 4 rounds of chemo.  Sadly and suddenly Tasha became sick and we discovered she had liver cancer that had spread to her lung.  After almost 19 months, Tasha earned her wings on July 17, 2013. No regrets and never forgotten.

Awwwww, Sweet Charley Happy Ampuversary!  You are so beautiful you should be on the cover of a book.  Wait, YOU ARE!!!!  Bahahahahaha!  Love you precious boy, keep showing everyone how it’s done!!!

Lisa and Angel Zeus

Zeus was a Husky mix diagnosed with Osteosarcoma at age 11.  A visible lung met and suspicious spot on his liver meant a poor prognosis-six weeks was our vet's best guess. We decided to fight for our boy and his right front leg was amputated on 12/1/11. We did six rounds of chemo, changed his diet and spoiled him completely rotten. We were blessed with 10 great months after diagnosis. Against the odds, the lung met remained a single met and grew very little over those months. A wonderful furbaby with the most gentle spirit, he fought with a strength that we never imagined he possessed. We have no regrets...
