I love any squeekie toy!
Can’t a dude get a nap???
I wont be needing that worthless, painful, broken, cancerous leg!
He clearly agreed that he was going to be incredibly handsome!!
It has been 3 days and I cannot believe his progress. He wants to actually so more than I want to let him do. Some of our dear friend made some homemade bacon and peanut butter doggie treats, they were a HOME RUN!!!
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 were horrific. 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 fracture, we think he has osteosarcoma”. I could not even hear what I was being told. How could this seemingly vibrant, 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 and was truly one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make. We ensured there were no macro mets in his lungs and that his blood work looked very stable. I also decided if we amputated we would also do chemo. Sarge has 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 gives us hope that he will be able to be a happy, pain free normal Sarge!!!
