Charley’s a rock star (and his rocks his new collar)!!! He’s met free!!!

 

Charley saw his oncologist, Dr. Buss, this Thursday May 7th and it’s all good news!  Charley’s chest x-rays were clear (no mets) and Dr. Buss said Charley looks great!  YIPPE!!!  That’s a great way to celebrate Joe’s 40th Birthday too!  Charley is a 4-1/2 YEAR Bone Cancer Warrior and it’s been 1-1/2 YEARS since his osteosarcoma met was removed from underneath his amputation scar!  His next met check is scheduled for 8/6/15.

 

Charley also received his Karma Collar that he won in the contest on Facebook in March.  The Karma collar is the “Hendrix” and it looks great on Charley.  Joe thinks he looks like a king wearing it!  Thank you to all who voted to help Charley win it!  Here’s some pictures of Charley rocking his new collar.

Big News! Charley celebrated his 7th Birthday on March 29th & his 4 Year 5 Month Ampuversary on March 28th!!!

 

Hi everyone!

 

Sorry this post is a bit late, but Charley had a lot to celebrate last weekend! 

 

Charley celebrated his 4 Year, 5 Month Ampuversary (17 Months post metastatic osteosarcoma tumor removal) on Saturday March 28th!  YAY!  YIPPEE!!  WOO HOO!!!

 

 

 

The big news is that Charley celebrated his 7th Birthday on Sunday March 29th!!!  YIPPPPEEEEEE!!!!!!!  We never thought we’d get the chance to celebrate 7 wonderful years with him after being diagnosed with Osteosarcoma at age 2-1/2.  I made Charley his favorite meat cake and he was so excited.  He was being so good waiting patiently to get to taste his cake while I took pictures.  Because Charley could polish off the entire cake in <5 seconds, I just cut him a piece instead and he’s been eating it all week as a bonus!  

 

 

 

 

 

My brother came in town on Saturday for a small party for my dad’s 75th Birthday, which was on April 1st,  at one of his favorite restaurants and then we celebrated my dad’s birthday again on Sunday with Charley.

 

Enjoy the pictures from Charley’s ampuversary and his birthday, my dad’s birthday picture with my parents and brother, my dad and Charley, as well as the video of Charley opening his present!

 

 

 

 

 

CANINE CANCER WARRIORS ended on April 1st and sold 18 tees.  Bone Cancer Dogs, Inc. will be receiving a check from Teespring for about $177.00, which brings the grand total that was raised for Bone Cancer Dogs, Inc. (BDC) to $7766.00!!!  YAY!  I am amazed that this much money has been raised since the end of January!  Thank you to everyone who supported this campaign!  I greatly appreciate it!  My plan is to hopefully do another campaign in the fall to raise money for BCD. 

 

 

Thank you to everyone who voted for Charley in the Karma Collars contest!  Charley won 1st place and he got to pick out whatever collar he wanted.  He picked out the following collar in Tan leather and Brass hardware.  I definitely would have never spend $210.00 on a collar!  LOL!  🙂

 

NEVER GIVE UP HOPE!!!   Sending lots of positive thoughts and prayers to all of you and your furry babies!

 

Thank you for all of your prayers, positive thoughts, hugs, and kisses.  It is greatly appreciated and we can’t thank you enough for all of your support!

Hoppy “Tri-Day” from Charley!!! Surf, Swim and Sand…Oh MY!

 

Yay!  Today is “Tri-Day”!!!  Every year, 3/3 is a special day that families of Tripawds celebrate their amazing 3-legged family members.  So here’s to honoring Charley!  He’s our hero, our 4 Year 4 Month Bone Cancer Warrior, and our miracle!  “Hoppy Tri-Day!”  ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

 

Since most of you are probably tired of the cold, snowy, and grey days of winter here are some pictures of Charley having fun in Cape San Blas, FL! Charley doesn’t let having only 3 legs keep him from doing anything!

 

 

Because of each and every one of you,  CANINE CANCER WARRIORS was a HUGE success for the 3rd time and a total of $1215.00 was raised!  YAY!  YIPPEE!!  WOO HOO!!!

 

If you add the $3647.00 from the 1st campaign, the $1907.00 from the 2nd campaign and the $1215.00 from the 3rd campaign, a TOTAL of $6769.00 was raised and directly donated to Bone Cancer Dogs, Inc. and it will go directly toward funding of specific research directed toward canine osteosarcoma!   That is  absolutely amazing!!!

 

THANK YOU!   THANK YOU!   THANK YOU!   Together we ALL made a difference! ❤️ 

 

If after you receive your shirt or hoodie and you love it and can’t live without another one in a different style or color, just go to the CANINE CANCER WARRIORS campaign and reserve another shirt or hoodie.  There are currently 5 reservations made.  If a total of 10 reservations are made, then CANINE CANCER WARRIORS will relaunch again and they will reprint.

 

Here’s the link for CANINE CANCER WARRIORS:

I know most of you are dog lovers.  Many of you have had a personal experience with canine cancer or know someone close to you who has.  Dog lovers have lots of doggie lover friends who know other doggie lover friends.  Even if you don’t want to buy a Canine Cancer Warriors shirt, PLEASE SHARE because…Together we can ALL make a difference!  ♥  

 

All of the shirts and hoodies are Charley approved too!

 

Here’s pictures of the front and back of the shirt I designed.  The shirt is available in a short sleeve tee, long sleeve tee, hoodie and a women’s fitted tee and they come in a variety of colors.

Happy 4 Year, 3 Month Ampuversary to my Bone Cancer Warrior Charley!

 

Happy Happy Happy 4 Year, 3 Month Ampuversary Charley!!!  I can’t believe it’s been 15 months since his metastatic OS tumor was removed!  Charley’s been doing great and he goes back the oncologist on Thursday, 2/12/15, for another met check.  Of course we’ll be keeping our fingers and 3-paws crossed for only good news.  Of course positive thoughts and prayers are always appreciated and welcome!

I wanted to share the newest addition in our home….no it’s not a baby Labby brother for Charley, but hopefully someday…it’s a canvas gallery of some of our family pictures that we had taken in Cape San Blas, FL this past Florida.  Every day when I see these pictures I can’t help but smile!  Cape San Blas is in the Florida panhandle and the sugar white sand and blue green water is amazing!  The best part about the Cape is the beaches are completely dog friendly!

There has been so much sadness and way too many losses lately, that I wanted to try to make a difference.    This past Sunday night I started a campaign on Teespring called CANINE CANCER WARRIORS to raise money for Bone Cancer Dogs, Inc. to help fund ongoing clinical trials and research.

 

Bone Cancer Dogs, Inc. has already funded 3 clinical trials.  100% of the profits from this campaign will be donated.  Since this campaign has been Donation Verified, all of the profits will go directly to Bone Cancer Dogs, Inc.  75% of all donations to Bone Cancer Dogs, Inc. go directly toward funding of specific research directed toward canine osteosarcoma.  The remaining 25% are used to support the organizations’s insurance, federal and state requirements, and the website.

 

Human cancer trials are first done on dogs because dog’s get the same cancers as we do and a dog’s system responds to cancer the same way ours does!  Many of the cancer trials on dogs go on to become standards of care in humans, so more trials are needed.  Osteosarcoma (bone cancer), which Charley has, mostly occurs in children and young adults and the prognosis is poor.  Unfortunately treatment options and success rates haven’t changed much in 20 years, but with more clinical trials hopefully this will change in our lifetime!

 

The statistics are startling!  1 in 3 dogs will develop cancer in their lifetime and 50% of dogs over the age of 10 will die from cancer.  Believe me, I didn’t know either and I was ignorantly living in bliss until Charley was diagnosed at age 2-1/2 with bone cancer.

 

Here’s a few pictures of the front and back of the shirt I designed.  The shirt is available in a short sleeve tee, long sleeve tee, hoodie and a women’s fitted tee and they come in a variety of colors.

In honor of Charley and all of the Canine Cancer Warriors who are currently fighting the biggest battle of their life and in memory of those who have earned their wings, please consider buying one of these super cool tees or hoodies! 100% of the profits will be donated to help fund canine cancer ongoing trials and research!

Charley loves opening presents and he is like a little kid at Christmas time trying to open the presents under the tree when no one was looking….or even when we were looking!

 

Here’s a picture of impatient Charley….he wanted to open his presents now!
