Today is National Puppy Day!

Here is baby Charley at 6 weeks old (2 weeks after he picked us).  We brought him home at 8 weeks old.



You have changed our lives forever and we are honored that you picked us to be your parents.  You are intelligent, resilient, loving, and loyal.  Your daily strength and determination make you a hero in our eyes everyday.  Even though we didn’t ask for this cancer journey,  we cherish every lesson that you are here to teach us.

We you Charley!!!

Love always,

Mommy and Daddy  xoxo

Hanging Out with Mommy & Daddy – My Last Weekend With 4 Legs (October 2010)

Filed under Pre-amputation

I had so much fun at the park with my Mommy & Daddy last October (2010).  Some of my mommy’s friends were taking my pictures….I’m not sure why, but I got lots of extra treats.  The best part was when they took my leash off and I took off running down to the skate park to see the kids on skateboards….I had never seen that before!  When I got tired of running, I let my daddy catch me.


The following week, on 10-28-10, my L front leg was amputated because of bone cancer (osteosarcoma).  It was a little hard the first 2 weeks after my amputation because my muscles were really sore and I was using muscles I have never had to use before to walk.  My Uncle Andrew lovingly called me “Hop-A-Along” because I hop when I walk….but I still can run like the wind!  All I know is that I am no longer in pain and I am loving life!


Hugs and chocolate Labby kisses from Charley!  xoxo
