Feeling good enough to keep Mama from cleaning.

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

People just don’t get it.  Life is about relaxing, stopping to smell butts, um I mean the roses and enjoying life.  Why people spend time running this annoying loud thing across the ground seems pointless to me… I must make it stop!

Sarge cracks me up every time he does this, but he seriously will not allow me to vacuum! I have to put him up to get cleaning done or he will completely terrorize my Dyson!!  He does this as well with our leaf blower and edger. This has gone on since he was first brought into our home as a puppy.  I am actually thrilled to see his energy is back enough to chase the vacuum, even though it still drives me crazy, I love him so much and it makes my heart so happy to see him bouncing around.

Sarge has been the the love of my life since we rescued him in 2007. He was thought to be a carcass on the side of the road in our community park. As I walked over to look at the pitiful dead dog, I soon realized he was still breathing, barely. We rushed him to the vet and although severely malnourished and in a terrible state, with TLC he miraculously pulled through. Snap shot ahead to 6/2014, we decide to go outside to play fetch, he was so excited and full of energy, doing his typical bouncy boxer pelvic shuffle. He took a nasty tumble and the sounds that followed was nothing short of heart piercing. My heart stopped, because I knew it was bad, very bad. I am a PA, not a veterinarian, but I knew instantly the leg was broken badly. I splinted him and rushed him to the vet. What initially was going to be an orthopedic surgery to repair a broken radius and ulna, quickly turned into, "Your dog sustained a pathological cancer, we think he has osteosarcoma". I could not even hear what I was being told. How could this seemingly happy, healthy, FULL of life dog have CANCER?? The BX confirmed my worst fears. This whole process took over a week. In that time I researched every aspect of canine osteosarcoma I could find and I had already made up my mind, we were going to fight this, not for me, but I knew he was not done living!!! Making the decision to amputate was not one taken lightly. We ensured there were no macro mets and that his blood work looked stable. I also decided if we amputated we would also do chemo. Sarge had his leg amputated 2 days ago and I am amazed at his hour by hour improvement. We start chemo in 2 weeks. I will keep everyone updated and love reading stories on here that give me hope that he will be able to be a happy, pain free normal Sarge!!! This is when we joined TRIPAWDS! What a wonderful, reassuring supportive community! I love you TRIPAWDS!

  2. Yes Sarge. Get that thing! I guess this is Sarge’s purpose in life: a quiet, dirty house. Thanks for the video, I now see the challenge tripawd dogs have on tile/wood floors whereas my tri-kitty Mona has no problems with traction. Have fun Sarge and keep your Mama laughing.
