About Me

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

BearI’m Barret, a 4.5 year old Cocker Spaniel/Miniature Pinscher mix. Yep, that’s right. Daddy was the MinPin, in case you were wondering. I was an accident.. but that is another story for another time.

The reason I am here is because I am scheduled to become a Tripawd on June 11th, 2013. I have a generally non-fatal-but-seriously-aggressive cancer called Hemangiopericytoma. It is classified as a soft tissue sarcoma. My vet is hopeful that the surgery will be curative, so long as they can remove all the cancer cells (meaning arm, shoulder, and some of the chest wall will be removed). If it isn’t curative, I’ll be treated as much as possible with surgery, diet and supplementation, as this type of tumor does not respond to chemo or radiation therapy.

Thanks for reading my story!
