Keep on smilin’

Boone’s 3 week and 1 day ampuversary is today and he celebrated by having 45 staples removed! Wahoo!! He was such an awesome and patient patient – giving us several tail thumps while Dr. Wilson searched through Boone’s quickly growing hair to find all 45.

He decided digging for a rock or stick in the fresh snow was the way to top off his afternoon.

Saturday Boone decided he was streamlined enough without that front leg to fit through a small opening in a baby gate (propped up to keep him off the bed) and found his way onto our bed. Note to self: don’t turn your back on an overachiever. I had to keep him there ’til my hubby came in to help him hop down.

And our bad dog bundle showed his true colors by mooching at the table, while giving me the stink eye.

He knows how to melt my heart and keep me smilin’ through this cancer journey.

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.

    1. Thank you Tina and Manni! It is amazing that he’s able to dig with just one front leg. I’ll be sure to hop over to Manni’s blog 🙂

  4. I’m sorry I missed this when you first posted, but wanted to let Boone know that he has perfected the stink eye. Wow Boone….just wow. Too funny. What a joy it is to see Boone come to life again. You are a good boy Boone and very loved. Thanks to your Mom for sharing your journey and pouring her heart and soul into your healing. It’s been wonderful to watch you rediscover the simple pleasures of being a dog. Love you Boone! 💕
