Fido Friday

Thank you all so much!

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for all the well wishes and furry hugs for Lily.  They really helped brighten her and my days.  A special thanks to Bart, Gizmo and Ruby over at Rottrover for sending the Power of the Paw our way.  It is truly appreciated.

 Lily had her checkup today. She is healing nicely, the stitches are out and the surgeon did a very good job.  She is adapting and getting around quite well for a 100+ pound dog on 3 legs.  She has been a little depressed (who wouldn't be!) but really perked up for her outing to the vet.  She is quite exhausted now.

She will have her first chemo treatment on September 13th and on we will go from there.  At the moment if all goes well we are looking at 5-6 treatments at 3 week intervals.  We can only hope for the best.

I will make sure and visit everyone to offer my personal thanks but again, thank you all so much. I can't tell you how much your comments meant to us.


  1. Hello Everybuddy, we are so glad to hear Lily is getting on well. We have been thinking of her since we heard about her surgery. Take care all. No worries (and good luck Lily), and love, Stella

  2. That's good to hear that she's doing well on her 3 legs. It must be quite an experience to go to "sleep" with 4 legs and waking up with only 3. But it's for the best. I hope the chemo don't cause her too much discomfort. Keep us updated!

  3. I am so pleased to hear that Lily is improving every day. I can tell she is such a sweetie pie and your love for her is evident. Here's to continued success.

  4. That is great news. She is gong to get super pumped up shoulders and six pack abs pretty soon. One does worry about a large dog on three legs, but it sounds like she is adapting. What a relief. Hopefully the surgery stopped that bad cancer.

    Hoping her chemo goes well and the horrid, horrid cancer is all gone.

    Have a good week end and do keep us updated.
