She’s feeling great! She loved the cake and the leftovers! We had two big days in a row. On Saturday, we (my husband, Lucy, and myself) went and took professional family photos at a local park, Lucy was a natural model! Then yesterday she had all sorts of birthday celebrations! Cake, a walk, and steak, then a little more cake! 
We will see all the finished pictures on Wednesday. I will definitely post some when I can! The sneak peak photo made me tear up, well everything kinda makes me tear up right now. I’m not crying all the time like when she was first diagnosed, so that’s good, and I never do it in front of her.

We all understand the rollar coaster you are on. When Brownie and I was going thru this my bathroom was like a revolving door. It was where I would go to just let it all out. Brownie never saw me cry. I did write Brownie several letters, and I still do. It helps me get all the thoughts out of my head.

I did realize when I was in an upbeat mood Brownie did seem to do better. So just keep doing what you are doing with a positive attitude. 

The most important thing is Lucy is happy, and looks like she is doing great! And it is clear to see how loved she is. Our pets can’t ask for more then that.❤

Can’t wait to see the photos. 

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!

The roller coaster of emotions is rough! 

I was struggling with the “do chemo or do nothing” thing, so I got an appointment with Dr. Loops for a homeopathic consult. Has anyone worked with him? Thoughts?

Oh yeah! For many years and mostly with great success. See these Tripawds Nutrition blog articles about him and just some of our members who have worked with Dr. Loops:

Can’t wait to see those photos.  I remember  before I was on this joirney with my dog, and back in  the day when cameras were used with film (yeah, I’m old as dirt), I didn’t  take that many pictures.  Once on thos joir ey with Happy Hannah, and with my Acer little tavletwith a front facing camera only, I started taking a lot of pictures and videos.  Of course, I had no screen to see where the camera was facing, so I have a lot pf photos of jist a foot or the sky with an ear.

Anyway, point being take pictures and videos all the time!!! Include selfies too with the pups!!   Doesn matter if you’re in thos joirney or not, take pictures!!  They will be furever treasures!!!

Hugs

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

On the topic of holistic vets, do you have any recommendations or have you heard of any reputable holistic vets in Ontario, Canada?
