I got a HUGE surprise last Wednesday, 11/16/16, from Mom and Dad. Since I had found out that my OSA had spread to my lungs Mom and Dad decided that I should get to go to Chatfield Reservoir and swim in the King Fisher Ponds. This was actually the first place I got to go swimming when I was only 6 months old so I was happy to make this my last swim as well since it was only fitting. The day was a little windy but at least it was warm to be able to enjoy the swim.
Lovin Life !!
I got to go play in the water at Chatfield and I greatly enjoyed it.
I am getting to enjoy swimming outside in the sun. Great Day !!!
Look at me enjoying the swim of my life.
I am enjoying this day to the max !!
I thought this was a great picture of Dad and I in the water playing.
Dad and I have had a lot of great quality time together over the past 8 years. The time I spent with Dad on my bed yesterday, 11/13/16, was a great time as it always is. I love digging in my toy bowl to find that special toy to take out.
I am happy on my bed playing with Dad.
I always enjoy it when Dad gets on the floor to play with me, especially when I get to lay on my bed.
I am keeping an eye on Dad to make sure he does not get any of my toys :>).
I talked Mom and Dad into taking me over to Chatfield Reservoir last Saturday as I was still feeling pretty good. I wanted to make sure I was able to make it over to Chatfield to enjoy the nice Saturday we were having around the Denver area. This was a great time to smell the fresh air and just take in life.
I am chilling in the back seat of Dad’s truck while we head to Chatfield Reservoir.
Dad and I got to pose together during our walk. Great times.

Dad wanted to whisper in my ear “I Love You” and I said “I Love You” too.
I was feeling pretty good last Thursday, 11/10/16, when Dad and I went for a walk. As we started the walk Dad noticed that I wanted to take a different route then we had been taking since I was getting out of breath easily. Dad looked at me and I looked at him to say hey I would like to stretch my legs a little. So we decided to walk down Village Circle, which is a rather busy street but I like to walk it as I am able to find rabbits to stare down and have Dad chase for me. As you can imagine this was a surprise for Dad since he was keeping me on short walks, but I just felt like going that day. It felt great and I am soooooo happy I talked Dad into taking that walk with me.
Lovin Life !!!
These prints are on a sidewalk along Village Circle. Back in April 2014 they were pouring new cement and I thought it was solid enough. Well now my prints will be there forever or until the cement is taken out.

This is Dad and I taking another break while walking Village Circle.
I have some sad news to share with my Tripawds community. I have been feeling kind of down the past few days but Dad just thought it was since I was in my Nadir period from my last chemo treatment. Dad had noticed several lumps/bumps showing up on my body but they do not bother me by itching or anything, just that there are a large number of them and some are getting bigger.
Anyway Dad was able to get an appointment with my Oncologists yesterday, 11/8/16, to see what these bumps/lumps were. Dad and the doctor decided to do chest Xrays since I was getting out of breath easily during my walks the past few days. The last Xray was 9/09/16 and it showed no spots or tumors in my lungs.
The Xray that was taken yesterday, 11/8/16, showed three rather large tumors that have developed in my lungs, which the doctor was very surprised with their size and how fast they came on. It has only been two months from my last Xray, but we all knew going into this fight that OSA was a very nasty and aggressive cancer.
I have been told that I have days, maybe weeks, to live. I know that Dad is devastated with this news but he understands and is very happy to have been able to spend quality time with me the past few months, as well will continue to until the day I cross the rainbow bridge.
I will make sure Dad updates everybody as time progresses for me and please know that I have appreciated all of the kind words that folks have sent to me. I know that Mom and Dad appreciate all of the support and kind words they have seen. I will continue to love life until it is time for me to move one. I want everybody to know that you should not feel sorry for me but rather help celebrate my life and if you have a pet of your own please give that pet a big hug and kiss as we do not know when our time is done.
