Phoebe’s amputation has been scheduled for July 23.
Day 5: Getting My House In Order
I’m anticipating I won’t have a lot of extra time in the weeks after Phoebe’s amputation, so I’ve been in a cleaning frenzy today. It still looks like Hurricane Helga went through the house, but it’s improving.Continue reading
Day 4: Preparing For Battle
I bought Phoebe’s harness today. The nice folks at Tripawds helped me choose the right one for her weight and size, and our local EMS had one in stock. She looks really good in red.
Day 3: Finding My Strength
I have my legs back under me where they belong, pardon the pun. After a long chat with our vet, I’m convinced that giving Phoebe a chance to live the rest of her life as a tripawd is the only clear choice.Continue reading
Day 2: How Did We Survive Without The Internet?
The reality of Phoebe’s cancer has sunk in and I now know we don’t have time on our side. Canine osteosarcoma is an aggressive, fast growing cancer. If it spreads to her lungs, we’re done.Continue reading
Day 1: Shock & Devastation
We’ve always assumed we’ll live longer than our pets. It’s just the natural order of things. But we also hope with all our hearts that they’ll live out their full canine lives happy and painless.
And when you least expect it, someone drops the C-bomb. Our Leonberger Phoebe has been diagnosed with canine osteosarcoma in her left metatarsus.

It’s Party Time!
Pampered Chef Party, that is.
First up… Feeding America is a domestic hunger relief organization that helps provide hungry families with the food they need through a huge network of food banks across the country. The keyword here is “domestic”, folks. Now that summer is here, we have an untold number of kids who aren’t getting the benefit of the discounted breakfasts and lunches provided when school’s in session.
So The Pampered Chef has teamed up with Feeding America to make their summer a happier and healthier one by donating a portion of their trivet sales during the month of June.
Then, there’s the rest of the show… loads of cooks tools and fabulous stuff for everyday and entertaining pleasure for both indoors and patio.
So come join the party! Have fun!
Nice view of Jupiter this evening
Right overhead and bright as can be…
