Today, I had to say goodbye to my furbaby Buster. He was having a hard time breathing and his coughing got worse. It was very hard to do but I could not let him suffer. He will always be in my heart. The lung mets got worse and the vet agreed it was time.

It was very peaceful, we said a parting prayer and he went to heavenly sleep. My heart aches and I miss his presence. He was such a sweet boy and will always be in my heart.

To honor his memory, I will continue to do all I can for canine cancer research. Buster would of wanted that. RIP Buster, always my beautiful fur baby. I love you so very much. xoxo


It's a Husky Kind of Day

Here in the Northeast, we've been hit by a Noreaster. This is truly husky kind of weather for my boy Buster. He's been wanting to sit outside non stop ever since it started. All I know is it's about time! He hasn't seen this much snow around here for years and he is enjoying every minute of it. If you have a husky, you can relate. Buster can sit out there all snow covered and I even caught him eating some snow! For hours, I do worry about him but I can't get him to come inside. He seems happy and I'm sure he is just remembering the times as a pup he would run all around in it and have fun. I hope you having a husky day too! A special thank you to Mother Nature for making all this beautiful white stuff and turning into a husky winter wonderland !
Enjoy it before it melts away!

As you know Buster is terminal with cancer, since it has spread to his lungs. Despite the Dr's prognosis of 3 weeks in mid December he is stil here. Everyday I am thankful for his presence. I attribute it to his will to live. I have come across a beautiful hospice guide, that I would like to share with you. Here is the link... (copy and paste)

Hello All,

Buster is still fighing the good fight. We haven't checked in due to a death in the family around the holidays. It was rather unexpected...

Buster is still going for his daily walks. The only real issue with all the meds in his appetite. He eats smaller meals now. It has been bitterly cold for us humans, but it is wonderful husky weather. He enjoys sitting outside and basking in the sun. Such is the dog's life... We are taking it day by day, and are making the most of it.

Please enjoy your day and tell your fur babies how much you love them! Make every moment count. Seize the day.

Buster , my canine cancer hero


Day by day....

Hi, it's been a very emotional time. We are taking it one day at a time.. We went to another oncologist and Buster started the metronomic protocol. The odds are not good, less than 20% it will help and could take up to 4-6 weeks to see maximum benefit. We also started artemisinin, a chinese herb being researched at Ohio State to enhance the protocol.

I am staying strong for Buster. I would not be able to make it through without out the well wishes. Also my wonderful cancer support forum, tripawds, have been there for me. It is nice to know we are not alone.

We really understand the meaning of seize the day. Each morning I am so grateful we are still together. Each day is truly a blessing and we are making the most of it!!

This may be our final chapter, but we are doing our best to make it a happy ending, even if it ends sooner than anticipated.


So this is Xmas...

Hard to believe it is with all of this going on.... I've been praying for a sign. I was thinking of taking him to see a different oncologist. I'm conflicted, a part of me does and another doesn't. I am so happy he is still here. This is his first Xmas as a tripawd. He is still eating and going potty. He is not coughing, or having difficulty breathing....I am with him all the time and sleep with him on the couch in case there was a problem in the middle of the night.

Thank you for praying for us. It means so much, also for reminding me it is Christmas. I am not going to mourn the living. He is still here!

Would like to wish our friends a very Merry Xmas and Happy Holidays. Enjoy your loved one's today and spend some time, enjoying the day....
Friends are angels in disguise
Buster xoxo


Thank you..

I want to say thank you for thinking of us during this very sad time.... We met with the oncolgist today and the time may only be weeks since they feel this is aggresive. My heart is breaking in two. I am trying to stay strong for Busters sake. I owe that to him. He is not in pain. I was given NSAID and tramadol. They tell me I will know when the time comes. I've been sleeping on the couch with him, I don't want to leave him alone for a minute. He's still eating and enjoying his marrow bones. Yesterday the weather was nicer and he had a wonderful time in the park making friends and even tried to get frisky with a girl doggie he had his eye on. I took lots of pitcures!! Thanks so much for thinking of us during this busy season. It means more than words can convey. Peace, Kim & Buster xoxo
Please pray we find a cure...


Buster has lung mets

Today is a very sad day. Buster went for his lung check with x-rays and the cancer is back. I am told he has about 3 months. Initially, I was told chondrosarcoma wasn't aggresive . Someone was wrong. I feel the Univ of Penn has given up on my precious Buster boy. I looked into the Metronomic protcol which they don't do and talked to my chinese practioner and she doesn't use the Armesisinin (exuse the spelling) either. I have been using a homeopathic vet, I will contact him.

I hate you cancer! You may take his body but you will not take our spirit. We will fight you till the very end.


Happy Birthday Buster!
