With the pawty being closer to us, we will to try and make it.  It will depend on how Rusty is doing; he has been well for the past several weeks, but when his system gets out of sync, he can go down very quickly. 

Any plans to meet for lunch at a dog friendly restaurant?  There are In-n-Out and Carl’s Jr. locations in nearby Norco; In-n-Out usually has outside dining areas.  With Rusty’s diet, he is allowed a hamburger patty once a week, so we would make it that day which would be easier than trying to keep ice cream frozen.

 

Chuck

Rusty is a Labradoodle who was diagnosed with level 3 Fibrosarcoma on January 16th, 2010 and had his left hind leg amputated on January 25th, 2010 five days before his 18 month birthday. Please see Rusty's blog @rusty.tripawds.com.  He is putting up one heck of a fight against this terrible disease.

Sorry I’ll miss the wedding event of the century!

(Checked w/ my volunteer gig and they already have 2 ladies out that day cuz of the long weekend. If I bail too, there’d only be one volunteer for all the dogs.)

If it were closer I could have come for a bit. Sorry I’ll miss it. You’ll have to post lots of photos! Hope the wedding cake is made out of Flying Dutchmen!

Jackie, Angel Abby’s mom

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!

Awwww. We are gonna miss you but THANK YOU for being there for the doggies. Unless you’re a volunteer it’s hard to remember that someone’s gotta be there for them, even on holidays, so thanks so much for sharing your day with them, they sure deserve it.

We will try to do another little get-together if we head to San Diego in a few weeks. We’ll keep ya posted!
