Hi Everypawdy! Can I just vent for a minute? Myyyy brother. Sigh. I guess Ace was jealous that I get to hop around on 3 legs and get all the special beddies and stuff. So you know what he did? He made a boo boo on his left front leg! Mr. Vet Man said it’s a shoulder injury. Probably from ruffhousing with my sisters. And thennnn, you know what he did next? Stole my beddies! I filed a complaint with the mommies, but they haven’t done anything about it. Can you believe the injustices?

In other news, I figured something out last night. I don’t always like to lay on the new rugs, but I have trouble getting up without them. SO, last night I learned that if I lay next to a rug, then when it’s time to get up I can just pull myself over with my front leg until I’m fully on the rug. My mommies told me I was smart, and I proved them right! BOL!

Until next time,

Hi Everypawdy! It’s mees Holly! So I wanted to let you all know that I am feeling better and better everyday. I’m eating my foods much better than I was and I’ms getting stronger. I had to have a talks with my mommies though about alls of their helps. Sometimes the mommies tries to helps me whens I don’t needs all their helps. For instance, I don’t needs the mommies to both comes outside to watch me pees and poos, I mean, since when did this become such a spectator sport anyway? One mommy is just fine for supervising purposes, and yes, I mades a deal with thems that I would use the ramps and not tries to go up and down the steps. I’m also moving around lots mores. I gets up and I goes from place to place alls by myself and I’ms using my carpets. The mommies were bringing me my waters in a bowl to my beddies. Well, I showed thems! See my pretty pictures? I can gets to the waters myself mommies, look at me go! Until later. I loves you alls! <3

Hi everypawdy, it’s me, Holly! I’m doing well today, and even thought I could go out back with my brother and sisters. Boy, did Mommy not like that idea! BOL! I think I surprised her when I just got up on my own and wandered into the group as they were about to go out the door. She thinks I can’t be independent. So I showed her! Humph.

I even impressed my mommies today by eating my first normal meal! They were so worried about me, they offered me all kinds of food stuffs. I wasn’t interested in eating anything because my belly was upset. I just had a big surgery, and I had to have 2 sleeps away from my mommies. Now that I’m all settled in and showing mommies how brave I am I felt ready for the food stuffs. Between you and me, I think mommies are a bit crazy, just sayin’. They cheered and cried and jumped around after I finished my food. I guess we had a small party, but theys forgot to turn on the music!

Anyway, the nice vet man left a message for the mommies today. My immuno panels came back as negative for both hemangiosarcoma and histiocytic sarcoma. Which means they have to call it “undifferentiated sarcoma”… now I don’t know about any of that, because I thought I was quite different. That’s what makes me so special!

Dino Mommy called the special vet lady to see what we’re supposed to do next. The special vet lady said to wait for the other biopsy results to come back from my boo boo leg. After that she will tell mommies what we will do next to keep the bad nasty cancer stuffs from coming back. Say whaaat? I thought I already knew what to do next. Nap!! BOL!

Anyway, until next time! <3

Hey it’s me, Holly. Guess what?! I’M HOME!! The mommies picked me up from the barky place today and even got me a ramp so I could lay in the way-back! (Regular backseats are for suckers. Why didn’t anyone tell me this sooner?)

Anyway, I was soooo excited to come home I tired myself out walking to the barky place door, and… this is a little embarrassing, but… I peed myself a little. Luckily the mommies and the purple shirt lady cleaned me up before any of my fans noticed.

Other than that little oopsy, I had a really good afternoon and evening so far. The mommies had so many new rugs for me to walk on, and a new bed. So I can lay wherever I want now! I feel like a celebrity. BOL.

I was a little nervous about the beds, so I asked my sisters to check them out. Pearl and Jessie cleared the new one, and Mew the cat said the other one was still ok too. Good to know and all, but I had business to attend to first! Guarding the water bowl from intruders. Don’t worry, my siblings helped! Nevertheless I did such a good job I wore myself out. So after a quick potty break, I took a nap with Dino Mommy on the cat-certified bed. Ahhh, it’s so good to be home.

The mommies told me all about your comments and messages. You all are amazing. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement! I will keep hanging onto them as I continue to heal and learn how to function as a tripawd.

Until next time!


Holly <3

Hi everypawdy, it’s meees Holly! So the mommies came to see me and they stayed with me for a few hours. We had a long talk. Theys splained to me again about my leg being full of boo boos and bad nasty stuff. Theys said that Mr. Vet Man had to takes my leg away so thats I don’t have the cancer anymore. I have to admit, I’m a bits upsets with thems but I do understand, well, kind of. Anyway, I am still on the pain med drip and I used all of my strengths this morning running away from the other Mr. Vet Man, because he’s a boy! Sometimes boys scare me, especially ones that I don’t knows that well. When my mommies saws me I was very very tireds. They had started to change my pain meds from IV to pill form. I have to admits, I whimpered a bit, and I needs some additional pain meds. So untils my pains are less I’ms going to stay rights here, for tonight anyway. Mommies snuck me some homemades dehydrated chicken strips, threes of thems! I ate those, but my grain free kibbles aren’t very interesting to meees right now. So mommies are going homes to feed my other fursiblings and to makes me chickens. Once they makes the chickens theys said that theys are going to brings that back to me tonight so that I can haves that instead of the kibbles.
