A Tripawd Dane Pawty!

Posted by: | July 30, 2012 | 5 Comments |

First I wanted to let everyone know that I am still feeling pretty good.  I was panting a lot and it was driving Mom totally nuts.  She started to wonder if it was the extra nighttime dose of Prednisone that was causing the trouble.  We Mom cut that out (just the evening dose) and things got a lot better.  I still pant every now and then, but the vet tells Mom he’s pretty sure the panting is just the Prednisone talking.  Unfortunately, I need to take it if there is anything goofy going on in my brain.  But at least now I am panting half as much.

Well yesterday we got to do something REALLY fun.  We went for a long R-I-D-E with Mom and (Almost Tripawd) Carter’s Mom Kelly up north to a town called Bridgeport to meet and sniff butts with Tripawd Tesa and her brother Max, and her humans Jill and Mike.  It was a 4-Dane, 14-legged PAWTY.  You’ve probably read about Tesa here a few months ago.  Well, Mom has made friends with her and is helping her with advice and stuff, since Tesa is at the beginning of her osteosarcoma journey.  She’s about to go for her 3rd round of chemo next week.  Mom loved the pictures that Kelly did of me, so she wanted to do something like that for Tesa and her Mom.

These days Mom is trying to get better at photography, so she took a bunch of pictures along with Kelly.  Kelly isn’t done with hers yet, but here are some of Mom’s pictures of the fun time we had at Tesa’s house:

Four Danes, Four Times the Fun!


Tesa and Nova…. 2 Danes, 6 Legs, 1 Journey


Tesa is On Her Way to Kicking Cancer’s Butt, Just Like Me!


Long Live Tesa!


Tesa Feelin’ Good and Lovin’ Life on 3 Legs


This is one of Mom’s favorite pictures that she took. No, that’s not Emmy and me, that’s Tesa and Max!


Emmy and I were starting to get jealous of Mom taking all the pictures of Tesa and her family, so we did some major photobombing!


Tesa’s Mom takes care of her like Mom takes care of me!


It was truly a party because we shared a drink together!
