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.
I am taking a break during our walk down Village Circle.
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.
I had a great time as I always do on Halloween night. Ever since I was a puppy Mom and Dad have created an outfit for me to wear. This year was a great costume as I was dressed as a NASCAR stock car and it was awesome !!!
This is me in my NASCAR stock car costume for Halloween 2016

I had a great time last night being in the middle of the annual pumpkin carving time. I have always loved being in the middle and chewing on the pumpkins as they are worked on. Enjoy some of the pictures and videos below of us having a great time.
