This terrific video was recently Tweeted to us and we just had to share it with everyone. It shows that even when a dog is 13 years old and gets a cancer diagnosis, if they are a good candidate for amputation surgery, life can be great after recovery!  It’s long but well worth a watch, it will make you smile, cry, laugh and cheer this pup on!

The beautiful opening song was written by Jip’s human, here’s more about it:

Early February 2012, at almost 13 yrs of age, my dog Jip was diagnosed with bonecancer(osteosarcoma). This is the amazing story from my amazing doggle, from diagnoses till 8 weeks after amputation. For those packleaders who are in the decisionmaking process of amputation, please be my guest and see what can come to it.

As an artist and singer-songwriter I once looked at my dog..my heart got filled with love and gratitude, and I wrote ‘Home At Last’ for her, first song in the video. It is also written with the thought of the feeling of coming home with someone special. It is on my debutalbum ‘Snowdog’, released in 2011, and, when you like it, it’s available on iTunes and Amazon, Kaat van Vlaanderen.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Awwww, so sweet.

Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman. Tripawds blog, and a more detailed blog here. Please also check out my novel, What the Dog Ate. Now also in paperback! Purchase it at Amazon via Tripawds and help support Tripawds!

I needed to watch this. We got a second opinion today and have decided to go ahead with the amputation.

Yes!!! that’s a clip from The Netherlands!  I even recognized the back grounds (Holland is very flat and green) and it was wonderful to see a doggie at Jip’s age get over her post op surgery complications, (i was crying….).   THANK YOU! it really helps to see this !!!
