Thank you for your support!Thursday we brought Toto in for a bandage change in the morning.  Thursday night I think things finally clicked for Toto and he realized he could get by on three legs.  He was hopping around the yard with the other dogs and wagging his little tail.  […]

God is Good

Tuesday we went to pick up Toto.  Before we saw Toto, I went to pay our bill.  We had an estimate from the vet, so we knew about what everything was going to cost.  So then they tell me the cost and it is half what we expected to pay!  They handed me an envelope […]

The surgery went well yesterday.  Thank God!  The vet said that he thinks he got all of the bone tumor.  We should know the results of the biopsy hopefully in the next week.  Our vet also talked to the director of the clinical trial we are looking into.  If the cancer is indeed osteosarcoma, we […]

I have been thinking and praying and researching.  Still […]

Cancer.  I always knew that cancer was horrible, but today I understand the intense hatred that the word cancer evokes.  It hurts to say it…  gets caught in my throat… brings me to tears.  I hate that he has cancer.  Toto started limping just about a week ago.  We thought he had just hurt his […]

Over two years ago my husband came home from work and ran in the house in a panic.  He said there were two dead dogs in our front lawn.  It was a really hot day and sure enough, there were two lifeless dogs laying in front of our house.  My dad always says that dogs […]
