Jill's one-year ampuversary is coming up this Thursday, so off we went in the snow this morning for her one-year check up.  She made me proud as usual, giving hugs to everyone.  I was a nervous wreck as usual....this was a big one!  Knowing this was going to be the last check up for a while, I voiced any and all concerns I've had, her burping, her wheezing (ok it's maybe snoring) in her sleep, her tripping every now and then....but when it all came down to it, she's 100% looking GREAT.  Pending a radiologist looking at her chest x-rays, her oncologist thinks they look crystal clear!!  So we can say with almost near certainty, as of this Thursday, Jill is officially ONE YEAR CANCER FREE!!!!!!  

Here she is with her oncologist, Dr. Hohenhaus, who says she is "just thrilled" with how Jill has done.  I am so proud....

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.

Hooray for Jill! What great news! And that look would do Bubba proud, Jilly.

Kathi and Murphy

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

See what happens when you are late to the site?  You don't have to worry all day about going to the vet- you just get to read the spectacular news!!

I know it is not the official day yet, but there will be extra treats for the pugs tonight to celebrate the all clear.
