Hey Steve and Ziva welcome back! Sorry about the iPad, ugh! We are on a similar path with ours, I think I’ll back it up today…

Meanwhile I’m so thrilled things are going great! Ziva has just bounced back soooo well, and is such an inspawration to all of us. You are doing such a great job caring for her too, that’s got everything to do with her recovery. Thank you for sharing her holistic vet’s info with us, I love Dr. Wolf and I just started reading about her! I think we need to have her on our Tripawd Talk Radio podcast, she sounds awesome. And I also love that you are getting another Plan B in place, just in case. Covering all your basis is such a great idea.

OK, well glad to hear she is doing so well. We can’t wait to see some pics of your Rottie Rock Star! smiley10

    Sorry all for the slow Pupdate:

   Ziva is now three months post op and doing very very good. We are continuing her on the holistic meds and as of her last Vet check all is clear. 

     She continues to amaze us every day and if you didn’t know it you’d think she was born a tripod. Other than getting tired a bit faster she does everything now that she did before. I wish people were more like dogs lol!!

  Anyway still waiting on my new iPad to arrive so hopefully the clouds still has my pictures. I’ll share as soon as I am able. 

Thank you everyone for your support and I hope everyone is doing well. Steve & Ziva.

   Hi all, felt the need to update again. I haven’t been much a contributor lately due to life,, well being life. Anyway time for Zivas four month anniversary. 

Everything is well, she is flying around like she was born with only three legs. We are playing fetch on a regular basis ( every night when I get home from work) she is running and chasing the other three dogs just like before. 

   Her latest check up showed all clear and no signs of the cancer so far so that’s good. We are continuing on with her natural medicines and have decided not to move forward with the chemo. Both Zivas Dr’s think its a good choice for her as well as she is doing so we will stick with that for now. 

   I have been checking in here just not posting a lot and still have been slacking on the video and picture areas but we’ll work on that soon. Take care all and I love readying up on all the pup dates and adventures so far.
