We are in week 5 post-amputation and getting back to our normal routine. Chemo #2 is Tuesday.

Hi! This is otisandtess (aka Christine). I finally asked my 16 year old daughter to set up this blog and post some of our photos of Otis. Took her 2 minutes – says something about the generation gap. So anyway, we have a forum “New Tripawd – Otis” if you want to know more about us. Otis is an 8 year old lab/Dane mix. On February 7, 2016, he broke his right front forelimb when he went outdoors. We took him to an emergency vet. X-rays suggested osteosarcoma. On February 9, the leg was amputated and he came home on February 11. Staples out and first chemo on the 19th.
Tess, by the way, is his adopted sister. She had cruciate repair over the summer, but is doing great and very attentive to him (just as he was to her during her surgery).
He took his first walk today – the excitement was overwhelming. We only made it 6 houses, but he really didn’t want to turn around! And you can see that he loves sleeping on the sofa.
