Just saying Hi!

Hello Tripawds!  Long time since we posted, so just wanted to say hi and give you an update on my family.  We moved in January 2020 – new job for me and a chance to live in a more rural area.  Gator lost 10 pounds just with the extra room to run.  He is now a svelte 110.  Enzo the cat came with me, while Sophia and Benny, a one year old cat, moved with my college student to Atlanta as official emotional support animals.   Princess passed last Fall – Sophia needs a great deal of daily care, but is still hanging in there.  Overall, life is good.

Lots of room to run, and yes, he stays inside the fence!

Gator loves his big new yard. So much more room to play ball.

Hoppy New Year!

Gator, the cats and I just wanted to check in and say Hoppy New Year to all!

 

Yesterday was the first time 8 pound Sophia cuddled with 120 pound Gator. Talk about Christmas spirit!

 

Just chilling,

 

Enzo, the second ‘dog’ in the house.

Spring cleaning

I have held off on washing this window – those are Otis’ and Tess’ nose prints.  It was their favorite place to look out.  Gator, for some reason, never looks out this window.  But, it’s window washing time.  😔  Some things really do not need to be saved.

This, by the way, was one of the first days Otis started acting ‘normal’ after his amputation.  I was so happy to see him taking an interest in his normal doggie duties.

A clean bill of health. . .

Just got back from the vet, with one new lipoma (the size of a peach as per the vet) and a second lump on his muzzle that turned out to be an infection, likely from sticking his nose into places where small critters live.  Perhaps into small critters themselves.  I think you all know where my mind had been going – once a cancer dog mom, always a cancer dog mom.  So happy to walk out of the vet with my little bottle of antibiotics!
