PS....It would be fun to try that yourselves.  Make a note of how far away from the house you are and the time.  Comlare that to the reaction Mojo and Sebastian start to show when kt appears they "know" you are getting close.

Sebastian had a pretty good day today. We kept them locked inside this morning, but the weather was nice enough that I gave them access to outside this afternoon and Sebastian took advantage of it - they were outside for a good hour - here are the highlights.

Sebastian even got in a quick jog around the block after work. As expected, he's resting tonight. The weather is supposed to get nicer over the next few days so I'm hopeful he'll have the energy to enjoy it. 

Just as a sidenote - these videos are easy for me to post. I use the Arlo app on my phone to download the video snippet and then I use the youtube app to upload the video. Then I copy the link and post.

Brilliant videos! Sebastian is doing fantastic! Love the video of them expecting you home. 

Keep up the great work Sebastian, you’re showing your pawrents what it is like to truly live in the moment!

All the very best

Slow day - not a lot of action, here is the major highlight of today.

Obviously, it was a catch up on rest day for them. And while I worry sometimes about his activity level dipping, I notice that Mojo is resting just as much as he is, so it appears this is more of Sebastian getting used to a new normal and not one of pain. That makes me smile.

I love how Sebastian keeps looking at the camera like he knows your watching him! He’s right comfy in his couch isn’t he! Good lad!

Keep up the Happy Hopping Sebastian!

I was just going to say the same thing Petra, I think Sebastian is onto the camera thing! He's going "Uh hey people, don't worry about me, see how I've got it made? I'm doing fine!"

By the way your home is gorgeous. We could never get away with that much white decor in our doghouse!

We took Sebastian to the vet today - he had some eye boogers so we wanted to get that checked out. Vet gave him some eye drops and we'll have to continue to give to Sebastian 2x a day for the next few days. 

Interestingly, the vet asked about Sebastian's lung mets and we told him that they showed up on his last visit and then the vet asked how much weight he's lost... we told him Sebastian has actually gained a pound since last time. He was surprised at that. 

Mojo and Sebastian are now at home resting up for the weekend. 

Sebastian loves his car rides. lol.

I could look at pictures of this happy boy all day long!   Soooo darn cute!

I think Sebastian is teaching these Vets a few things about every dog IS  different and statistics don't mean much to them! 🙂

And yeah, I agree.  Sebastian KNOWS where the camera is!  He is CLEARLY comfortable and completely relaxed and content just chillin' on his sofa! 🙂

I ditto all of the above! He looks so good, and such a ham! He's like "I am gorgeous, and I know it "insert cute wink" heartheart He's gained a pound YAY!  And he's as happy and content as a pup should be, such a wonderful thing to see ending a long week. Got a big grin here, I know you do too!

What a great Saturday for Sebastian. He started this morning with a quick fence run to check out some backyard noises.

He then got to go on 2 short walks today, so he was over the moon! He's now resting for the night. We'll say a couple prayers giving thanks for today and ask that tomorrow may be as good as today. 

Thanks again to everyone for all their support.

Such a good day for Sebastian - apparently he got up a little early (4 am) for a quick bathroom break. 

He then came in and napped for a few hours. It was raining early today, so it looked like that might be the plan for the entire day. But the weather cleared just in time for his mom to take him a photography shoot by someone who was looking to build their portfolio. So Sebastian and Mojo hopped in the car and they went to a nearby farm where Sebastian got his pictures taken and then he and Mojo got to see cows and donkeys - their mom said they were so happy running around and enjoy being out there - he didn't cough or have any breathing problems either. Just hopping around the entire time. 

Mojo even got her pictures taken too, that is, until she decided that rolling around in poop was a good idea, lol... Sigh.

Sebastian came home, ate his food and is now resting for the night... until probably 4 am, lol.
