What!? Four months already!?

Didn't we just celebrate three????


This is a great ampuversary as it's her first one during our new part of the our post-chemo journey!  She's doing great, just a little bit sleepy two days post chemo, but everything else A-OK (even though she is now down to about 5 whiskers left, as you can see from the pic below)!  What a brave little girl she is big-grin


On to month five!!!

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

Yay Jilly!  Wow, it does seem like we just celebrated her 3 month.

She has the prettiest markings and is so photogenic.  She looks like quite the diva in that pic.  Way to go you two!

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

In your heart, where I belong.

Happy ampuversary, Jill! You make it look easy and elegant!


From abandoned puppy to Tripawd Warrior Dude, Dakota became one of the 2011 February Furballs due to STS. Our incredibly sweet friend lived with grace and dignity till he impulsively raced over the Bridge on 12-15-12.

I missed it!  I missed it!  Drat!  Nonetheless: HOPPY 4th, JILLY BEAN!  We love you!  Hop on, Winter Warrior!

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!

Jill you're just racking up those ampuversaries! Pretty soon it'll be #44! Congrats you little cool cat, you never stop impressing all of us here.

P.S. If your Momma hadn't have pointed out that your whiskers were missing i never wouldda noticed! They'll grow back, you'll see.
