Today is exactly 8 weeks since surgery although the actual date anniversary will be the 28th. Today also marks my first chemo treatment with Vinblastine. My mother is hovering waiting for any side effects. I think she’s crazy! Since I came home I have been begging for food (so much for loss of appetite), running all over the place and barking (who said anything about fatigue?) and generally just being my normal self! Due to being a mutant 🙂 (see forum post about herding dog sensitivity), I only receive a 70% dose. I guess you could say I am one of the X-Men (oh please let it be Wolverine – my Mom loves Hugh Jackman!). I also have to be on prednisone for awhile.

My life is getting back to normal. I got to take my first trip and not have to go to the vet. I was so excited that when my Dad went to help me in the truck I ignoted him and jumped right in. I also figured out how to jump on the bed in the gooseneck of the horse trailer so now they are blocking it off because they are scared I will hurt myself jumping down (spoil sports!). Mom has changed my food to grain free which I think is the best thing since sliced bread. I just don’t know why she didn’t do this earlier! Even my brothers and sisters are getting in on the fun and will be changing their food soon also.

The vet told me I am amazing (duh!) and I am going to run with it. Hope the rest of my treatment goes like today. Number two is next Tuesday. I’ll keep you updated. Here is a picture of me begging.

This is my intense look.

    Shooter, I like the way you think! You got all the spunk in the world and I know you’re gonna blast this cancer to the MOON!

    Hey I love jumping into horse trailers too. Especially cause there’s some good eats in them.
