Old Dog Poem

Filed under: Uncategorized — Karma at 6:47 pm on Thursday, March 28, 2013

First, a quick update, Brendol is doing fine.  She has been real tired the last week to 10 days but her bloodwork looked good on Monday so her third chemo is on schedule for this coming Monday.  We spend a lot of time curled up on the couch.  Also in the news, if you didn’t […]

Round Two – Done!

Brendol had her second round of chemo today.  All went well.  Platelets were back up to normal.  Her white blood cell count actually went down from last week which we weren’t expecting but the vet wasn’t alarmed by that.  Brendol had a full fun day – I know – a fun day getting chemo.  But she […]

It’s been one month today!  And what a month it has been. Brendol began limping at the beginning of the year.  At the end of January, I took her in to be looked at because it was getting worse, not better.  And that was when we got the terrible news.  One week later, on February […]

This post is gonna be a quick one.  I just wanted everyone to know that Brendol ran full-speed, no holds barred, down the hill to the back of the property this morning!  She even still beat Aissa.  (Poor Aissa has short little legs, so she’s just not as speedy). I have seen Brendol run the […]

Hold Them Close

What a crazy ride this month has been.  From finding out about Brendol’s cancer, to amputation, to chemotherapy, and then a friend going into hospice, and his passing away two days ago.  All followed by a round of cancer dogs losing their fights this past week or the pawrents getting tragic news about their conditions.  […]

Tripawd Awareness Day 3/3

Filed under: Uncategorized — Karma at 1:24 am on Saturday, March 2, 2013  Tagged

Miss Brendol was diagnosed with a osteosarcoma at the end of January.  She became a tripawd on 2/6 and although I was extremely concerned about her handling this change (she’s 12), she has adapted wonderfully.  No more pain or limping.  Occassionally there are complications with these types of procedures or it takes a while for the dog to adjust, […]
