fighting the good fight against hemangiosarcoma



Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support! I think I am starting to see outward signs of the cancer that I know is in Toto’s body.  Lately, Toto seems to be more tired, and he sleeps very soundly.  Sometimes when he is sleeping it sounds like he is breathing heavier (but that […]

The Good and The Bad

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Ok, well I guess I will start with the bad.  We finally heard back from the prospective adoptive parents for Dexter.  Apparently they are no longer interested.  That really sucks.  It breaks my  heart.  Fortunately, we have still been hearing back from people, and others have […]

More Info

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

I have been holding off posting more info on Dexter because we found a potential home for him.  I was very optimistic on this one, but we were supposed to hear back yesterday, and we haven’t heard anything yet.  Now I am afraid that this means it isn’t going to work out.  I will let […]

Dexter has been a wonderful dog –  housetrained, great with us, the kids, the other dogs, the cat, and SUPER sweet.  But, we realized that there is no way we can keep him.  Our plan was always to have two dogs.  Toto changed that plan when he showed up at our house.  I think that […]

Another Lost Dog

Sunday, February 7th, 2010

Thank you for all the get well wishes for Toto and for all of the advice!  We really appreciate it!  I am glad to say that Toto is feeling a lot better.  That is a huge relief. There is never a dull moment in our household, though.  You may remember that I wrote a post […]

Toto has been feeling under the weather for the past few days.  I can’t believe that it has been over 4 months since his amputation and over 5 months since he was diagnosed with cancer.  Most of those days have been happy days for us.  But this week, Toto has had an upset stomach.  He […]

I’m Back

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

I just had to post that I am back from my trip this weekend and Toto was fine without me.   I am so glad that everything was ok and Toto seems to be doing a lot better again…  full of energy.  Maybe he is just glad to have me back… 🙂

Slowing Down

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

It has been over three months since Toto was diagnosed with cancer.  We had a great Christmas and New Year (very busy!) and now we are trying to get back into our old routine.  Toto is still doing great…  still playing, still eating, still happy…  But, I feel like he is slowing down a little.  […]

Toto Meets Santa

Monday, December 28th, 2009

I want to start out by saying, Merry Christmas to you and your tripawds!  I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. The weekend before Christmas we went to visit my in-laws.  We can’t bring our dogs with, so we left them with my parents.  We have done this many times, but not since Toto […]

Last Monday I came home in the evening before my husband (and the kids).  I sat down on the couch to relax.  Toto hopped over to me… clearly unsteady on his three legs.  He got to the couch and just looked up at me.  I immediately picked him up and held him.  He started to […]
