Duke's Journey

Dog Fair

Hello,

Today Bubba and I went to the Dog Fair. I was able to walk around without any issue and I accidentally pooped on Moms shoe.  Bubba got a new collar with squirrels on it.  He hates squirrels.

Curly Hair

Hello All,

I’m starting to get the hair back on my leg now but it is coming in curly along my scar.  Weird. It’s still a golden colour and I’m hoping that it gets a little darker and has some more red in it to match the rest of my body.  It’s kind of itchy but it’s getting better.  You can’t even tell there is a scar there

I went for my first car ride, that wasn’t to the vet, on Monday.  I went to my Gramma and Grampa’s house with my Mom and Bubba.  I was really tired being in the car for a while but Mom stopped a couple of times so I could stretch.  I can get out of the car on my own now but I still can’t get in on my own so Mom and Dad have to help me.  I have learned that if I sit by the door I can stick my head out and feel the wind.

Mom had to bring a baby gate so I wouldn’t go up stairs.  Mom stayed down stairs so I didn’t want to up stairs anyways.  I love Going there because Grampa always gives us treats, even when Moms not looking.  😉

Well, that is what I did last week.  I go to my next laser treatment tomorrow. Yay

Laser Therapy

Hello All,

Well I went to the vet last night and it was actually neat.  We got there and we had to wait a while but that was ok because I received lots of attention.  They called me and my Mom to the back and I got to lay on a nice blanket while wearing these cool glasses.  The technician rubbed a laser on my leg and now I don’t have the twitching anymore.  I think my Mom is going to take me every week.  That means more treats and head rubs.  That’s all the news I have for today.  Later…

Duke, Slow Down!!

Hello All,

I have finally started going into the backyard with my brother Bubba and I get to play, well when he lets me.  I still get tired quickly and he’s not sure about playing with me.  My Dad has been taking me outside and playing with me too but I know he worries about me hurting my other leg so I try not to do too much.

I went for a car ride yesterday to the pet store…they love me there.  I get so much attention when I go out and I know Bubba is getting jealous about it.  He is the cute Border Collie.  The best part is the treats I get.  The baked cookies were on sale so Mom bought me and Bubba some.

Mom said my onesie came in at the vet today.  She makes me wear them and I secretly like wearing them but I will never admit it.  They are like someone is hugging me all the time.

My Daddy has been home all weekend and I have been sleeping in bed with him when Mom goes to work.  They put the bed on the floor so I could get up with them.  I missed sleeping with Dad in the morning when Mom leaves but now that I’m gaining strength it is a lot easier to get up.

Have to go for my Nap before Mom gets home.

The Beginning

Hello,

My name is Duke and I’m a cancer survivor since Jan. 8, 2018.  It was Dec. 2017 when I started to notice a pain in my right ankle.  It began to swell and become hard, my Mom thought I had sprained my ankle and she iced it till I felt better.  The pain seemed to go away until closer to Christmas when I started limping and I didn’t want to run around anymore.  One day my Mom decided it was time to visit the Vet and at the Vet I get lots of treats.  The vet always has the good treats on the counter.  I even was able to go in the back for more hugs and treats until they put me under this thing (X-Ray).  This thing is what told my Mom I had Cancer.  That’s was the beginning of where I am now.

I had my amputation on my right leg on Jan. 8 and since then I have been in the crate at home when Mom goes out.  I don’t know where she goes but says its work, whatever that is.  Did I say that I HATE the Crate and the cone, I cant forget about the cone.  Mom lets me out when she gets home and takes my cone off.  I get to go out in the front yard with Mom, I don’t know why but she says I have to.  I would rather be in the back with my brother Bubba to bark and play.

I don’t mind not having my leg, it doesn’t bother me anymore and its not in the way.  I feel great and I can get around just like I did before just in a different way.  My Mom is always saying Slow Down but I don’t know what that means.  I just want to run around.

This is where I am today.  Soon I should be able to go outside and play with Bubba.  I hope I still keep getting the treats though.
