Happy 26 Month Ampuversary Charley!!!

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Just wanted to share some great news!  Today is Charley’s 26 Month Ampuversary!

 

We have been truly blessed and this week we celebrated Charley’s 3rd Christmas as a Tripawd!  Pretty amazing considering he only had two Christmases with all 4 legs!

 

We are thankful for every day that we have with Charley and we take none of them for granted, because we know that unfortunately the cancer beast can rear it’s ugly head at any moment….so we continue to LIVE happily and fully with cancer!

 

May 2013 bring you lots of love, laughs, happiness and most importantly health!

 

Hugs and chocolate Labby kissesxoxo

Thankful for Charley and so much more…..

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Charley is going to write this post, but I just wanted to say that I have so much to be thankful for….and I am especially thankful for a certain special Tripawd chocolate Lab named Charley.  Charley, you are our Hero!!!  I never thought that we would be celebrating Charley’s 2 Year Ampuversary on October 28, 2012 (that’s why we made it Charley’s ampversary month) or another holiday season with our boy!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

 

Hi, it’s me Charley!!!  Sorry it has been a while since I posted, but I’ve been really busy!

My mommy keeps telling me that we are still celebrating my 2 Year Ampuversary Month (my 2 year ampuversary was on October 28) so I have a few more days left to celebrate!!!

I was the surprise guest at the 8th Annual Bone Cancer Dogs Reunion in Dayton, OH from October 25-28, 2012 (my mommy said that she kept the secret for a whole year and she was hoping and praying that I would make it….whatever that means).  My mommy and daddy rented a mini van so I would have more room on the long car ride.  I had lots of room, but I still liked trying to sit on my mommy’s lap.  I got to meet a lot of new doggie and human friends and everyone loved me!  I was able to table surf and score lots of food and my begging for food was rewarded too!  I even got fed some cake from a fork…my mommy didn’t know that I could use utensils!  I won 3 Wubba’s from the raffle too!  You can never have too many toys!

My mommy already put up the Christmas decorations.  I love looking at all of the lights and opening presents.  Too bad that there are no presents under the Christmas tree yet.  I’ve already broken one of mommy’s glass ornaments with my tail, so my mommy had to move her favorite ornaments further up the Christmas tree.

My Grandma, Grandpa, and Uncle Andrew just got over to my house for Thanksgiving and I am so excited to see them that I’ve been doing the Happy Labby Dance!  My mommy and daddy don’t cook the traditional turkey and fixings, but instead we do homemade lasagna and filets.  I’m keeping my 3-paws crossed that I’ll get some yummy samples of dinner tonight!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!!

Love and chocolate Labby kisses,

Charley  xoxo

Tripawd Charley Opening a Christmas Present!!!

Ho, Ho, Ho and Merry Christmas!!!

 

Charley is quite the professional gift unwrapper!!!  If I say “present”, he will go get a present from under the tree….and he won’t open it until I say “open”!

 

Here is a link to a video of Charley opening his Christmas presents from his Bone Cancer Dogs Secret Santa Pal (Thank You Kristi, Shari, and Furbabies!!!):  

 

I need a bumper sticker that says, “My Tripawd Labrador is Smarter than your honor student!”

 

I hope Charley’s video brings you a smile!!!  Tripawd heroes are amazing!!!

 

Hugs and chocolate Labby kisses from Ellen & Charley  xoxo

Happy 1 Year Ampuversary Charley!!!

YAY!!!  YIPPEE!!!  WOO HOO!!!    HAPPY 1 YEAR AMPUVERSARY CHARLEY!!!

 

Just wanted to share some great news…one year ago today Charley became a tripawd!

 

Charley is doing great and he continues to amaze us everyday!  He does everything that he did on 4 legs with 3!  Since his amp, he has even figured out that he’s a lab and he loves to swim!

 

The day we were told that Charley had osteosarcoma, we were devastated…Charley had just received a death sentence at 2-1/2 years old.  But 8 months prior to Charley’s OSA diagnosis we were given a reprieve.

 

At 22 months, Charley began limping and we were told he had OSA at that point.  We saw an oncologist immediately and an aneursymal bone cyst (extremely rare) was diagnosed in his L mid-humerus via a fine needle aspirate.  We had follow up visits with the oncologist every 6-8 weeks and we watched the cyst resolve.  At what we thought was our last oncology visit, the oncologist saw something starting in his L proximal humerus which was diagnosed as OSA via a bone biopsy on 10-21-10.  His L front leg and scapula were amputated exactly one year ago today on 10-28-10.

 

When we were initially faced with the possibility of OSA in February 2010, I frantically started researching on the internet and everything that I found was grim and depressing….except for one thing…the BoneCancerDogs (BCD) Yahoo group!

 

BCD gave me a glimmer of hope!  A group of complete strangers, became my extended family and close friends, as well as my life-line and support when I needed it the most.  When Charley was first given a reprieve from OSA, I made a promise to myself that I would remain an active member of BCD to help others by sharing Charley’s story.

 

Then about 8 months later, my bubble burst and Charley was diagnosed with OSA.  It may sound strange, but I consider myself lucky.  I had 8 months of learning more about OSA from all of you and I was better prepared when we did receive the diagnosis.  I’ve kept my promise to myself and to Charley, by continuing to be an active member of BCD…it’s my way of paying it forward.

 

I celebrate with you when your pups are doing well.  I cry with you when your pups are struggling.  I grieve with you when another hero loses their fight.  Please give all of your pups some extra hugs and kisses from me….you are all always in my thoughts and prayers.

 

Charley being his handsome self:

 

Charley running like a bat out of hell (note how he face plants as he zooms around the landscaping and he doesn’t even slow down…he only has one speed…FAST):

 

GO CARDINALS!!!

Love, Hugs and Chocolate Kisses,
Ellen, Joe & Charley
