Happy Sunday to all!

Can you believe it? It is my 6 month ampuversary. Who knew we would make it this far back on that cold January day when this all began. I am pretty much a happy tripawd except for the fact that I really think my Mom should feed me more. I’m pretty sure older dogs should get more food – I mean we have made it to old age!!!

Thankfully, nothing scary or unusual has occurred in the last month. I go to the vet tomorrow for my CBC and then, if all looks good, I will be getting my third chemo with Lomustine. They decided to wait 5 weeks this time because it drops my white blood count so low and 4 weeks didn’t seem to allow for my red blood count to recover much at all. I’ll be getting antibiotics again just as a precaution. Of course the important thing about this is that I’ll be getting a lot more CHEESE! My brothers and sister like this too because they get cheese along with me. This way they stay in debt to me :-).

I don’t seem to have quite the stamina I had prior to my problems in June, but Mom thinks it may be because I haven’t been getting my Immunity Plus so we will be going back on that this week. Yay – more treats!! Plus she is going to add an iron supplement to help with my red blood cells after treatment.

Here is a picture of me trying to look pitiful so I can get more food!! Until next month – Ciao Baby!!

Honestly Mom! Can you not see me wasting away right in front of your eyes?!?!?!

    “Hey Shooter! Happy Hannah here! Tell Ms. Luanne for the love of dog, feed you! What is going on over there?. Yeah, it’s great that they give you TWO food bowls—but what the heck good are they if they are empty?! And I don’t see an kce cream dish ANYWHERE! Look at the size of your HUGE water bowl contraption! Do you have food bowls with a HUGE reservoir of food?? I think not!!:-) You gotta go on strike or something! I’ll see if I can make up a sign tonight and air mail it over to you! You and your friends can picket until yo see ice cream in BOTH BOWLS! It’s your SIX MONTH AMPUVERSARY and you get empty bowls??

    Ah ohh…gotta go…here comes mom!

    “HAAANNNAAAH!! HAPPY HAAANNNAAAAH! Are you ON that computer again??”

    Sorry Luanne, everytime she sees a picture of food or food bowl on TV or computer screen she trys to claw and chew her way through it! And no, she does not get all that ice cream…it’s really yogurt!! Shhhhhhhhh…don’t tell.

    This really is a wonderful ampuversary! There are several of us on this journey within a month or so of each other. If we have to be on it, It’s a privilege to be on it with you and Shooter and the others! We actually have fun sometimes, huh?
    I hope you realize what an i spiration you and Shooter are to all of us! Yeah, he’s cute as a button and looks gentle as a lamb, but he’s one tough pup! Quite a strong and valiant fighter! Takes after his momma”

    Shooter continues to pave his own way and make his own rules! He’s giving hope to us all! He’s an incredible role model for grit and determination. And he is one loved pup and he knows! We’re all cheering for you Shooter!! You’ve got the right stuff!

    Now, I agree with Happy Hannah and get some SIX MONTHS AND COUNTING ON special ampuversary food in those bowls!

    You are a true tripawd hero!! Thanks for being a bright light of hope for us all!

    “HAAANNNNNAAAAHH, get off the computer with your slobber!!! ….Sorry, she saw me type “ice cream”:-) 🙂

    Now, one thing that would make us all smile today…’bout a picture of adorable Hero Shooter with a bowl full of food! ‘Would love to see those eyes liste with joy:-) 🙂

    Surroundng you both with happiest of ampuversary wishes!

    Sally and Happy Hannah

  3. My brother and I like to trick mom and dad into thinking the other one didn’t feed us breakfast. It actually works every once in a while!
