Today marks my 3 month ampuversary! Not only that, but I am halfway through my chemo protocol. This week is #5 of 8 and so far I feel pretty good. My Mom says I am a little hyperactive as prior to this I was always kind of a couch potato. Not sure why it seems to be affecting me this way, but I guess it’s better than being Β tired all the time. I also have an insatiable appetite. I try to hurry through my dinner so I can maybe sneak in and steal some of everybody else’s dinner. I’m pretty sure they don’t really need that much and I am an invalid you know!! Licking dinner plates is my other favorite pastime. I don’t get much, but every little bit makes a difference.

I’m really fond of my walks, but I really like it when Mom and Dad let me go outside and wander while they feed the horses. There is so much to do like eat horse poop (nectar of the Gods), eat horse hoof and look for anything else gross and smelly that should go in my mouth.

I have some adventures coming up. First, I get to join a K9 walk that helps raise money for animal charities in Montana and for a K9 Cancer charity. We are only doing the one mile and not the 9K. I think that would be a little ambitious. They have a big dog festival at the end of the walk so my siblings and I should have lots of fun. Then in June I’ve been given permission to do the Survivor’s Lap in our local Relay for Life. Even though it supports human cancer research, any kind of research helps all of us! My team members are making me a super hero cape! How cool is that? I will be proudly wearing my Tripawds bandanna at both events so everyone knows what great dogs those of us on 3 legs are!!!

Put that plate right down here!!

Here’s a quick pic of me doing my favorite thing – BEGGING!!!

    Did our mom make a horse paddy cake for you to celebrate?? Have you tried cat poop? That’s the delicacy around here:-) Ugh!

    SOoooo happy for you Shooter! You deserve every single victorious moment of love that,s being shoveled your way! Continue to frolic on handsome boy

    Have you thought about packaging your “supplement” and selling it to other tripawds under the name of “Nectar of the Gods” vitamin for dogs? Bet it would sell like hot cakes!! ‘Think that’s what’s giving you the energy?

    Okay, guess we’ll be celebrating with a slice of your horse paddy cake…..ala mode please:-) πŸ™‚

    SO HAPPY FOR YOU AND WE SEND YOU THE BEST FOR MANY, MANY AMPUVERSARIES TO COME:-) πŸ™‚ Sally and Happy Hannah

    3 months is amazing! Keep up the good work! Sounds like all of your charity functions will keep you busy. Time is going to fly by. Enjoy every moment with your family and don’t worry about “tomorrow”.
