Business as usual

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

I’m sorry Barret and I have been absent from Tripawds for a week or two. I have a greater appreciation for the veterans of this site who take the time to come to the site every day and help everyone. Now that Barret is doing good and I am not flipping out over every faceplant, I’ve been able to focus on work and school and I feel like there is no time for anything else! We already cancelled our cable TV because we just don’t have time to watch it! So, THANK YOU to all the veterans who are reading this.

As far as Barret’s recovery goes, nothing new to report, except a cute puppy covered in mud.

The last few days I’ve been obsessed with figuring out if the tumor is growing back. The tissue around where a stump would have been doesn’t appear to be changing, but I am keeping a close eye on it. I’m sure Barret is wondering why Mommy keeps feeling him up all the time, LOL! Any veterans with soft tissue cancer have any tips on spotting if it has returned?

Have a terrific weekend, Tripawds!
Barret & Heather

    Hey Heather, never apologize for going out there and having a ball with your pack! We’re just hoppy that he’s doing fine and you are focused on having a great life. You are always welcome here no matter how long you’ve been away.

    Meanwhile, I think it’s a great idea to keep an eye on any lumpy bumpy spots. Start a lump diagram of Barret if you haven’t already and measure them carefully. Then keep an eye on them and let your vet know if anything grows. We sure hope not!

    Love seeing that beautiful face! I think he decided he needed one of those upscale facials!!

    Ah yes, the search for lumps. Unfortunately, Shooter developed another mast cell tumor right on his amp site which made it inoperable. It grew rapidly, but with the change to his chemo, seems to have shrunk some and is not growing. Never hurts to keep an eye on anything but most are prettymundane. We just have to accept anything that comes along just like our dogs do.

    Give Barrett a hug.
