Sunday Funday

I had the best day yesterday. I slept on the couch with my brothers while mom went and bought craft supplies to make some pumpkins. When she got home, I totally helped her. I tried to taste to paint .... She kept saying,"it's not food!" What?! Everything is food! She kept fussing at me for trying to chew on the pumpkin stems, too. I mean, how are you going to being home these awesome orange things and expect me to just leave them alone?! Once she was finished she took my spooky Halloween photo with them... BOO! Oh, I almost forgot to mention that my medical tags came yesterday. Yeppers, now if I decide to sneak my way out of the yard hopefully someone will quickly help me get back home. This morning we all got in the bed. Mommy said her heart smiles when we are all together. I guess that's why she let me clean her breakfast plate. Don't worry, I shared! Have a great day!

Lazy Saturday

It's cloudy and rainy so today is a lazy day. Mom and dad got a little worried because I fell coming up the steps this morning. They aren't sure if my leg was weak or if I was just going too dog on fast to go eat breakfast. Have I mentioned that I love to eat?! Mommy even let me lick the inside of her Ensure bottle- it's like my most favorite thing. She tells people she's on the "Juno has a cancer and gets anything she wants diet" so all I have to do is stare at her with these big, sweet eyes and I usually get something! I was bummed this morning because dad had to work overtime today, whatever that is. But he loved on me before he left. Mommy snapped a pic but she caught me stickin my tongue out at my brothers while I sang "nah nah" in my head. Right now I'm lounging on the couch with writers block next to Mu who seems to think it is cold in here and Andy who is dying for someone to pet him! Have a great Saturday everypawdy!

I've been having a really awesome day today! I've been really hungry. I know, I know, I'm always hungry.... But today I was so hungry that I finished mu's dinner for him. He didn't want it anyway ... Well I didn't actually ask him but its gone so I assume he didn't want it BOL! Last night me and my brothers met to come up with a game plan. They said they would do anything I needed... I'm kind of a princess. We tries to do "paws in the middle" to agree on our pact but Andy was too distracted. I've been playing with my rope toy that Ms Gina made me. She makes all my tutus, too. You guys should check out her etsy store: GBDee. I'm getting really excited right now as mom types this for me because its around 4:45 and that's when my daddy gets home! I know exactly what time it is and I watch for him everyday. I love my mom but there sure is nobody like my daddy! Hope everyone has a great Friday!

Thursday afternoon ...

I woke mom up at 4am this morning even though the dog door was already open. I just wanted to cuddle with her... Well only long enough to wake her up then I left to curl up on the couch. When she finally got up to get ready for work I sat around waiting for her and watching her ... That's how she knew I didn't feel well this morning because I usually sleep in with dad. She gave me my pain pill and by the time she got home from work I was feeling like myself and played with my brother, Mu, and my wubba!

The Beginning....

So my mom thought it would be a good idea to start a blog to document my journey in hopes of helping someone else out who might be going through this in the future. For those reading this for the first time, let me give you a quick introduction to yours truly....
In May of 2011, I wondered up to my mom's work. Her boss let her take me home and return to work. While she was away, I escaped and some neighbor called the cops on me! Before I knew it, I was dropped in a high kill pound ...and bein' a pitbull wasn't such a good thing! But mom came looking for me, even though I wasn't hers yet. She offered to adopt me if no one claimed me. After 6 weeks in that awful place, they FINALLY let her take me home. Her and daddy already had two furkids and thought they would find me a home of my own. No home seemed good enough and before long they decided what I already knew...this was my forever home. Since then, I have had several medical issues including incontinence, staph infections and lyme disease. All of which I had before I came to my furever home, but mom and dad happily gave me all the medical attention I could ever want. Over the past several months, my lymphnodes have been swollen so my vet, Dr. B- who is awesome and comes to my house, decided we should do a cancer biopsy for lymphoma. On Monday, September 24, 2012 around 9:10, my parents received the call they were dreading....I have intermediate lyphoma. Now, the question is when to start my chemo. Dr. B is going to talk to the oncologists at NC State to decide since I'm doing pretty good right now. I have to say that I have been feeling MIGHTY good today! I stole my first bit of food of the counter since my surgery (I'm really good and sneaking bread. So good that the breadbox has become an empty decoy because I know how to open it!) Tonight, I'm laying on the rug with a FULL, and I mean FULL bread belly.
Don't mind my shaved back leg from the biopsy!

Encouragement and support are greatly appreciated along the way!
