It was one year ago tonight that I came home from work to find Jill finally out from under the bed after hiding there for two weeks.  It had been the first time my parent’s puppy Belle was visiting, so I figured she just wasn’t a fan (now we know different, as they love to […]

Wow.  6 months already?  How did that go by so fast!?  When I sit down to actually look back on the last 6 months, I really only see improvement after improvement and belly rubs and purring and kisses.  Not any recovery, CBC’s after CBC’s after CBC’s, x-rays, chemo, vein problems, peeing issues, supplements, metronomics.  And I […]

One year ago this month, I brought Jill to the vet for an “infection” on her toe.  Everything seemed to turn upside down, topsy turvy real fast from there.  While we’ve been on our tripawd journey for almost 6 months, it’s been almost a year (celebration to come in a few weeks) that we’ve been […]
