Happy to hear Lacy is doing so well! And I agree. Lacy deserves a cheeseburger and ice cream!

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

I hope her story brings hope to others. She's a tough girl, an 80lb lap dog at times and a fierce barker at night when she wants mom/dad to throw the ball. And the other dogs appreciate her tenacity to get us to feed the pack every ten minutes it seems...Love her!

Cheeseburger/ice cream huh....... My wife is sooooooo dialed into her diet I may have to sneak these in..... Yes, she deserves some treats. Great idea!

Found your brave Lacey’s starting post.

 Thank you for your support.

Out of interest , did you use a supportive body sling for Lacey to help her to go outside to do the necessary or not n the beginning please  ?

Any tips greatly appreciated

I get it!! 

Hahaha......my tripawd does the same thing.  My other pack member !is a vlind Bull Mastiff.   Once tripawd Frankie starts his "feed me" vocalizations, she joins in barking. and walks to her food bowl and wont leave til I put some in ot!!is a vlind  Problem is, I cant resist spoiling  either one and cave everytime. 

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!

Lol, Brownies bark was every evening at 7 for cookie time. If that clock hit 7:03 he went nuts!

Labs, gotta love them❤️

I did use the sling we received after her surgery. A few days into going up and down stairs she took over and I didn’t use it again. The sling was helpful. We also took some of the old kids tshirts and put them on her to prevent licking etc….
