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!

A fun little memory of Brownie. Before Brownie became a Tripawd he was the best counter surfer ever! It did not matter how high or how far back, if he wanted it he was going to get it. This is what I found one day when I came home beside the dirty paw prints. Once be became a Tripawd he never heard the word no again….

Awww Brownie…. I know you didn’t get into Mama’s donuts because I could see the guilty dog in the background leave the room. icon_lol

I love that Mama never said “no” to you again when you turned into a tripawd. Who could ever say “no” to that beautiful face?

Oh Brownie😊    I think your doughnut  covered pawprints on the floor gave you a way.  Nope, no way you could blame tiny paws Max or tiny paws Sassy on this.  Besides,  they are way too short to achieve this athletic feat!

You clearly have your Mum wrapped around your paws.  No way she could ever fuss at a dog as adorable  as you!!!

Okay Nancy, now you have to share the story about Brownie and what he did with the treat you gave him before going to work…………

Ok Sally, When I would leave for work In would give Brownie his favorite treat.When I got home he would greet me at the door with that treat in his mouth. He waited for me to get home. I discovered he was getting lonely when I went to work. So I went to the shelter and got Max.. From then on all was good.

I miss my boy….

I know you miss him Nancy, of course you do. You’ve lost a member of the family, and it will take time for things to feel normal again.

How is Max coping? And Sassy? Any changes in their behavior?

Hi all,

When Brownie first passed, even though I saw him pass over I think I was in denial. I cried on the way home, but I thought I would of cried more. I kept asking myself “what’s wrong with you”? But when I picked up the ashes it hit me hard!  As soon as they brought him out I started balling, right in the lobby at the vets office. It finally hit me, he is gone.  Now I am second guessing myself. Did He go too soon? I think he could of hung around a little longer, but I didn’t want him to go thru anymore pain. There was nothing that could be done and his vet said it was just going to get worse. What really bothers me is I broke a promise I made to Brownie. I wanted him to cross over in his favorite place in the yard. But I had to drag him to the vet. The place he hated the most.

Wednesday the 1st will be Brownies 13 th birthday.  Those of you who knew him, know that 7.00 pm was his favorite time of the day. Cookie time. I am asking all who have a fur babies to give them a treat on Wednesday at 7;00 in honor of Brownies birthday. I would love to see pictures and videos posted here.

Thanks for letting me ramble on. I catch myself looking out of the corner of my eye, expecting him to beep bop around the corner. I even caught myself going to the bedroom to check on him. I miss him so much!

Nancy, you aren’t rambling.

I understand the agony of second-guessing how things played out. I’m sorry it didn’t happen as you had hoped. It’s got to be heartbreaking for you. But I hope you will remember that Brownie would never hold that day against you. All he knew or cared about was that you were there and you loved him through his transition. That’s all that mattered to him, your gentle loving energy by his side. Dogs are so forgiving, they are not capable of being mad at us. We are our worst critics.

I love the idea of having a 7pm treat on Wednesday! Brownie would too! Since we are Pacific time, that will be at 9pm your time. I’m setting a reminder now so Wyatt can chow down right at 7. Stay tuned for pics.
