Return of the propeller tail :-)

Boone has a way of making me smile ๐Ÿ™‚

Today’s smiles actually started last night, when he picked up a Nylabone and figured out how to brace it between his paw and a pillow so he could chew on it for a while.

And he slept through the night! Wahoo! I knew he was in a deep sleep when I heard moose moving through the yard around 1AM but he didn’t. I did hearย him making his routine house patrolย at 3:30 this morning so I got up and encouraged him back into our room and onto his makeshift bolsterย bed where he slept ’til breakfast. He still seems to prefer the floor or the thinner bed (which we surrounded on two sides with pillows) over the orthopedic bed.

This morning he cleaned his breakfast bowl, hopped his way outside, then came back in for his morning nap (which technically extends the entire day).

But he put the biggest smile on my face when his propeller tail wag returned! I was just about in happy tears. It’s been MIA for some time.

He also became my unofficial office assistant again today. Here he is making sure there are no documents to be shredded (a job he takes very seriously, but you wouldn’t know it in this pic).

Life in TriPawd Boone’s world is coming together ๐Ÿ™‚

Our sweet & crazy Boone was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in December 2016, and amputation was performed January 24, 2017. Five weeks post-amp a mass in his chest and lung mets were discovered. He left us way too soon on March 14, 2017...tail wagging in the peaceful sunshine of our living room. His big heart and personality is missed.
