Lots to Celebrate Today – Otis’ 5th Month Ampuversary

Big day today!   Not only is it Otis’ 5 month ampuversary, but both dogs have their check-ups with our family vet.   At one point, I didn’t think Otis would be around to have another annual check-up.   But even better, I had noticed a lump on Tess’ chest, and it turns out to be nothing more than a typical lab fatty lymphoma (sp?).   So, Otis is doing great, and Tess is doing great.   What a great day!


I love this dog!

Lots of naps, but we did that before the amputation too!

Otis, an 8 year old 106 lb. lab/Dane mix, became a Tripawd on February 9, 2016 after his right front leg broke due to osteosarcoma. We did 4 rounds of carboplatin, but lung mets were discovered on Agust 25, and he passed on September 4. Otis was half of a bonded pair, and his adopted sister Tess, passed suddenly of hemangiosarcoma on October 9. The day before Tess passed, a local lab rescue group had identfied Gator, a 120 pound 6 year old yellow in need of a home, as a potential companion for her. His picture was on my phone, and my house needed a dog. . .

  3. Happy 5th month ampuversary Otis! When Nitro lays on the couch like that, my husband says “I think he’s glad that leg’s gone, it’s easier to lay that way”. Both are looking good! Congrats!
