Happy 18 Month Ampuversary to my Jill!!  The time has really flown by!  I am so sorry I have been so absent as of late.  I started a new job two weeks ago and between saying goodbye at my old job and getting settled in here, things have just been so so crazy I have barely been home!  But don't worry, I left Jill in good hands while I've been out......


Jill is a 9-year-old tuxedo kitty. She was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in June 2012 on her toe in her right hind leg. Her leg was amputated on 12/12/12 and she completed four rounds of chemo (2 of Carbo, 2 of Doxy) in April 2013. "Like" Jill's facebook page: https://www.fac.....tty?ref=hl Proud member of the WINTER WARRIORS!!!! Her blog can be read at xoxo

Our beautiful Lily was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her front leg on 12/14/11 at age 8 and had amp on 12/16/11. She completed 5 rounds of carbo. She was so brave and kicked cancer's butt daily! She lived life fully for 4 years, 3 months, and 15 days after her amp. My angel is a warrior princess. I miss her so much.

Yay for number 18! Wow I can't believe it either, it's amazing how fast time goes by. Jill looks better than ever, I think she's reverse aging like Charlie!

Meanwhile, who's in charge of who while you're away? Looks like Jill's got things under control as usual.

Yay for Jill!

And congrats on the new job, Erica!

Deb and Angel Lexie* Diagnosed at age 13. Tried radiation first; wish we had amputated upon diagnosis (even with lung mets). Joined Club Tripawd April 2014 & Lexie loved life on 3 legs! Advice: Start physical therapy as soon as your vet clears it, especially hydrotherapy if available :-) See Lexie pics here.

18!!!!!!!  And isn't it also 2 years since the toe came off, too?  WAHOO, Jilly Bean!  Way to do it, gal!

(Belle: you little stinker!  But we love you, too)

~ Katy & Jackson

ACL tear in right hind leg 12/5/12 and scheduled ACL repair surgery 12/21/12. Pre-op xrays revealed osteosarcoma. Amputation 12/28/12.  Chemo (carboplatin) started Jan 10, 2013 and ended on April 5, for a total of 5 doses. He handled carbo like a champ!  No side effects.  We started metronomic therapy at his third chemo and have been also doing some holistic treatments.  He's a lively, playful 10 year old huskie-boarder collie and a very proud member of the Winter Warriors!  Our love. Our funny little guy!
