Jara says”Play with me!! Right now!!” The energy and joy that Jara displays makes me so happy!  Jara is truly one of THE happiest dogs on the Planet!  Nothing holds Jara back!!!

I always love her video, videos of all your dogs.  They are so loved and so happy.

Great news on the check up too!

Thanks for always making us smile with Jara videos 😊

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

I think I had almost as much fun watching Jara and crew as they did enjoying playing in the pool and claiming the ball!!!

Jara gets sooooo excited  just being her hapoy self!  I love how she runs out into the yard after her pool dip.  Seeing your dogs so full of joy and living their best life with you and with each other is truy beautiful  to watch.

I k ow we’ve said it over and over, but Jara is sich an inspiration  for anyone starting this journey. 

Thank you for sharing Jara and her pack with us.   We are so privileged!

Hugs

PS….When they are done playing, do they fall asleep quickly?  I saw how the “puppy” jumped out of the pool and headed to his bed soaking wet for about ten seconds of “rest”😁

the little dog doesn’t like the pool, it’s the first time she swims in the pool, she’s 7 months old,

Jara and Bella spend all afternoon asking for more swimming pool, they don’t rest 

Leidy doesn’t like it, she only likes the ball

WOW! Every time I see her having fun out there, I keep wondering why I’m not outside having fun too?! She really makes me smile, thanks for making my day.

I can’t believe she just jumps in without even thinking twice. She is one very focused girl. And she is strong to get out of the pool on her own like that! 

Jara is a ROCK STAR!!!smiley10smiley_clap

Good morning, today we have bad news, I had a visit with the oncologist and he has seen the new x-rays and says that the cancer is spreading through the lungs. He has given us the option of palladia treatment.

I know that was disturbing to hear, to say the least.  Honest to goodness though, when I see videos of Jara playing full out it’s clear that the lung mets are not interfering  with her quality!aaat all.  So regardless of what the xrays say “clinically “, the way she’s behaving outwardly is what’s important. 

Some have tried Palladia  and found the side effects to ve rough….some found no side effects at all.  Discuss with your Onco what studies have shown as far as slowing down the mets, or shrinking them.

And please know that rhis isn’t  the end of the road at all!  Many dogs have lived with mets and maintained  quality  for a long time.  Jerry is an example.

Jara  could care less what the xrays showed.  All she knows is she’s continuing  to be more spoiled,and getting to play and romp and be loved more than most dogs ever get to experience 

Hanf in there.  Do your research on Palladia  godmother alternatives.  In the meantime time, we would looooove to see more video of Jara and crew!

Manuel, I’m so sorry about this news. My heart sank when I read it, just had a chance to catch up. I know this is tough to know, we never want to get that kind of news but you know I look at Jara, and she doesn’t look like a dog who is ready to call it quits. Look at her GO! She says “Dad please don’t worry, I’m still the hoppy, happy girl I always was and will continue to be!”

How is she doing otherwise? Is her appetite good? 

Palladia is definitely an option to treat lung mets. Sally gave you a link to a newer treatment that is being studied so that’s a good one to check out. There are other links/info too, here are some posts for info:

Your dogs really are amazing in so many ways.  Love how relaxed they are at the Vet😎  And so cute the way Jaraand pal are laying side by side and appear to be asleep…..while at the Vets!!!! Unheard of for dogs to be so relaxed!!!!  

It puts huge smile on my face to see Jara running and playing with such energy and sich delight!!!  Just more proof that she coud care less about any ole’ xrays.  She continues  to live life to the fullest and be her Happy self!!   

Thanks so much for posting this.  She is such an inspiration and your bond with her…….with all your dogs…….is a beautiful  thing to behold♥️

Hugs

Thank you very much for your comments, the truth is that I have had help from my wife to take the dogs to the vet, the dogs behave very well.

The visit to the vet has been for vaccinations, all good.
