First Ampuversary!

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 6th, her bad painful leg was taken away!

Brendol with me  Now, one month later, she is running and playing and getting into things she isn’t supposed to.  Stairs still give her some pause, as does trying to get down from the bed (but it’s a really tall bed).  She’s getting Chemo, second one is next week.  And things are going good. 

I know my baby girl still has cancer and this is only the beginning of this journey.  But, for now, I am hopeful it is a long journey.  And now we celebrate the time we have.  For today is one month pain free!

My furry family and I live in Atlanta. I care for a 12 year old pittbull mix (Brendol) who underwent an amputation of her front right leg for bone cancer. I also care for a 10 1/2 year old chow/border collie mix (Aissa) and two sister cats that are 3 (Mathilde and Morrigan).

  1. Congratulations Brendol! It will get easier to jump on the bed. It helps if you get a running start (then you have to twist your body in a weird way to land on your back)! Think about it like pole vaulting. 🙂

    Here’s to many more good months ahead.

  2. Hoppy ampuversary, Brendol! It’s an important, huge day! It’s all yours. To celebrate, Jackson enjoyed some kale and parsnips on his boiled turkey-kibble toppers. Cheers!

  3. Great attitude. Next week will be Maggie’s 3 month mark and April is her 6th birthday. I would be thrilled if she’s still running and catching squirrels then. But I, like you believe she has cancer and it’s just a waiting game but we are having a great time in the meantime. Keep cuddling that cute Brendol.
