The swelling has gone down completely in my leg and I am using it normally. Mom made a vet appointment for another x-ray a week from Fri to see where we are with my cancer. I am eating a lot of good things like roast beast, chicken breasts and ground chuck burgers. Mom is cooking for me every night :) I am taking my codeine pain pills every 12 hours and don't seem to be in any pain. Please continue to pray for me!! *Hugs and slobbers*

 

The Beginning of My Journey

I have been limping for awhile now. I have hip dysplasia and arthritis and have been treated with pain pills, NSAIDS, glucosamine supplements, and then injectable Adequan. The Adequan seemed to work! I was running and chasing squirrels again! :) The a week ago tomorrow I started to refuse to use my right back leg. Non weight bearing completely. So off to the vet I go where I was diagnosed with bone cancer, This is not a good diagnosis at all. Normally they would amputate the leg and do chemo. At my age they think its not going to give me any quality of life, so they have decided to make me comfy and spoil me rotten for as long as I have left, I am getting a lot of good food, roast beast, roasted turkey breast, cheeseburgers, hamburgers, baked chicken breasts and tomorrow maybe even more roast beast! Mom and Dad are trying to be positive, but I see Moms eyes getting leaky when she talks to me. :( I still like to go for rides and chew on bully sticks! Mom is trying to be as normal as she can be for me and believe me, being normal comes a little hard for Mom BOL

"Tessie"

Tessie is the Royal Rooters rally cry
Tessie is the tune they always sung
Tessie echoed April through October nights
After serenading Stahl, Dinneen and Young
Tessie is a maiden with a sparkling eye
Tessie is a maiden with a love
She doesn't know the meaning of her sight
She's got a comment full of love
And sometimes when the game is on the line
Tessie always carried them away
Up the road from "Third Base" to Huntington
The boys will always sing and sway

Two! Three! Four!

Tessie, "Nuf Ced" McGreevey shouted
We're not here to mess around
Boston, you know we love you madly
Hear the crowd roar to your sound
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn't live without you
Tessie, you are the only only only

The Rooters showed up at the grounds one day
They found their seats had all been sold
McGreevey led the charge into the park
Stormed the gates and put the game on hold
The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
Boston's tenth man could not be wrong
Up from "Third Base" to Huntington
They'd sing another victory song

Two! Three! Four!

Tessie, "Nuf Ced" McGreevey shouted
We're not here to mess around
Boston, you know we love you madly
Hear the crowd roar to your sound
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn't live without you
Tessie, you are the only only only

The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
Boston's tenth man could not be wrong
Up from "Third Base" to Huntington
They'd sing another victory song

Two! Three! Four!

Tessie, "Nuf Ced" McGreevey shouted
We're not here to mess around
Boston, you know we love you madly
Hear the crowd roar to your sound
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn't live without you
Tessie, you are the only only only
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn't live without you
Boston, you are the only only only
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn't live without you
Red Sox, you are the only only only

Tag You're It!
May 23nd 2007 8:14am
Hiya pups! tagged Several pups have tagged me and now I'm it. I get to choose 7 of my pals to tag.

Here are the rules:

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

Here are 7 fun facts about me! Introducing Dolly,

1. I was adopted twice! Mom got me the same day my first family returned me.
2. I snore so loud that sometimes dad has to leave the bedroom cause he can't sleep.
3. I adore puppies! I lie down so they cab sniff and crawl all over me!
4. I don't like to kiss humans. I only kiss Mom when she first comes home from work then she has to wait til the next day!
5. I'd rather get belly rubs than eat!
6. I only WOOF when I have something to say!
7. I am skeered to death of loud noises and fire! When there are big booms I get so upset that sometimes I throw up, and when Mom and Dad have a fire in the outdoor fireplace I bang on the door until they let me get back inside where its safe!



Pass on the fun...

WOOOOOF,
Dolly

I choose:

Sgt Earnie Bilko-Essig
Murphy
Nikko
Isabella
rio catalina
Missy
Sam

 

Usually I hate Mondays, but........

Today is Monday, my least favorite day of the week. Dad works at home, but is too busy to pay much attention to me, and Mom goes off to work. (Why can't every day be Saturday or Sunday?) Today though Mom is home!! She's walking funny (humans sprain their ankles sometimes. she tells me) so I kinda try to not lie in the pathways as much. She has a hard time stepping over me. But she's home! We snuggled on the c ouch while she drank that awful smelling coffee stuff, and then she and I looked at dogster. I like when we do that. She smiles a lot and tells me about the other doggers on there. She even let me share a bit of her breakfast, after I ate my own.

Well, gotta go take care of Mom. Humans! I tell ya they can be really funny animals at times! Even worse than these small furry things called cats around here.
