Remy's Journey

Happy New Year 2019

Hey my fellow Tripaw Buddies,

It is me, Remy!! Someone went and took my tree down!  I loved laying under that tree for my naps. So now I am back at jumping up on the couch for a snooze. We are waiting for some snow here in Pennsylvania to go out and jump through. Had a little bit of flurries the other day but heck, can’t do anything with that. 

I am feeling pretty good these days. It has been about 2 months since they took off my leg. But guess what, I really didn’t need it anyway. Can jump in Dad’s truck and up on the couch too. We are back to taking some walks again, just not as far yet. Mommers is taking me to my doctor for needles in my neck. Calls it acu-something (Acupuncture) and it’s really helping. My head bobs when I walk and it was getting achy. Okay, y-a-w-n, I will let Mommers tell you the rest. Remy needs a nap now.

Sloppy kisses to all…..Remy

Hi All!

We are so grateful for Remy and his recovery so far. He has not changed one bit. He has the sweetest disposition and just loves to snuggle back up on the bed at night with us. I am now making food for Remy that I add to his dry food. He is on Halo dry food and I give him 1/2 cup of the dry and then add a mixture of cooked ground chicken, chicken livers, apple, garlic, green beans and ginger. I make it in the crock pot and it lasts about 9 days. I have to put a little into his brother Freddy’s food as well.

I have homeopathic remedies that I give Remy daily as well. These were based on my consult with Dr. Charles Loops in North Carolina. And I have just recently starting adding CBD oil to his food. That is to help with his arthritis that he has in his back legs. Gotta keep those legs working well since it was his front left leg that was amputated. It is a bit of extra work for me but I don’t mind at all. Remy is worth it!!

How is everyone else doing? Sorry I have not updated in a bit. Ever so grateful for this group.

Thanks, Lynn (Mommers)

Remy – One month post-op

December 17th, 2018 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Howdy fellow Tripawds!  Mommer’s said that today is one month since I had my amputation surgery. Funny, but I don’t remember that day. Lots of things have happened since then. Who knew that me, Remy, could walk on 3 legs. But I can!!

I got a gift in the mail last week. It is a walking harness. It has been totally broken in with love by another Tripawd named TrickieLuv. It came all the way from California. TrickieLuv was a beach dog. Mommer’s says that we will go to the beach in my harness someday too. It fits me really well and Daddy couldn’t wait to put it on me and take me for a walk. I was so excited that I hopped right up into Daddy’s truck and off we went. So much fun. I am still getting used to the 3 leg thing, so Daddy said we had to keep our walks short for now. I will love my new harness as much as TrickieLuv did.

Mommer’s has a video to add, but until she figures out how to do that, here is a photo of me napping under the Christmas tree.

Remy loves laying under the Christmas tree. He is my favorite gift.

Remy – 3 Weeks Post-op Amputation

December 7th, 2018 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Hi My Cool Friends:

This is Remy!!  Mommers is finally allowing me a little time alone so I thought I’d check in with all of you.

I’m feeling so much better. It’s been 3 weeks today since they took my leg away, but I found out “I Don’t Need it Anyway!”

Yesterday, I jumped right up in Dad’s truck seat to go for a ride. And I now can get on the couch again. Life is Good!

At night, I do feel so tired, but Mommers makes me go into the bedroom with her at 7:30 at night. It’s probably because she is tired too. She says the Holidays are tiring. Not sure what that means.

Here is a photo of me when I was getting one of my Cool Dude Laser Treatments. Don’t you love my shades?

I am so happy to have all these new friends and Mommers seems a little less worried now. That is good news for me, Remy!!

Okay, feel a nap coming on. Have a great Tripawd Hopping Weekend My Friends!!  Remy & Mommers.

Remy’s recovery

November 27th, 2018 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Hi Everyone,

“It’s me Remy, the new Tripawd! I am starting to feel more like myself again. I do like to nap, a lot, but if there is food around,  I’m up and hopping over to it. Heck, I am a Lab! I go outside again in the yard by myself and have jumped up to my favorite spot on the couch. Still sporting these staple and stitches, but only a few more days mommer’s says. Speaking of mummer’s, she worries a lot. Always doting on me, giving me the yummy pill pockets. She thinks I don’t know that there are pills in there, but I am pretty smart. She stays home with me everyday! Geez, what’s a guy to do? But she loves me and I love her. It’s all good.”

Mummer’s here. Yes, I am doting on him and yet trying to let him do as much as he can. We are only 10 days post-surgery and I’ve already called a canine physical therapist to see what they suggest for keeping him strong and active. Any advice on that and a harness would be so welcome. It is his left front leg that was amputated, but Remy also has some arthritis in his back hip/legs so I do worry about it.

Did anyone change their dog’s diet after the cancer diagnosis? I’m trying to read everything but there is so much to get through. We are doing the cool laser treatments a few times each week at our Vet’s office.

So if anyone reading this can provide some advice, I would truly appreciate it.

Thanks,

Mommers (Lynn)

Remy in surgery today

November 16th, 2018 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Last week we found out that our beloved Remy has Osteosarcoma in his left front leg; and today he is in surgery to have his leg amputated. I have to tell you this was a whirlwind week and it wad no easy decision. Remy is an 8 year old sweet black lab that we adopted about 6 years ago. Everyone that meets him falls in love and wants to take him home. We know how very blessed we are to call him our boy. He loves to run free when we take him to the farm fields near by, and yes to roll in manure from time to time. Heck, he’s a Lab. So when we got this diagnosis we were devastated.

This morning we took him to our wonderful Vet Kristy and had to leave him. We are scared. I have been researching and reading and losing sleep but I have faith that Remy will make it through the surgery and rally in the days to come. Are choices were do nothing and keep him as pain free as possible and pray for a few months with him, or remove his leg and keep him pain free and pray for at least another year (or more) with him.  I am so grateful to find this site and to see these beautiful Tripawd dogs running and playing and enjoying their life. It gives me real hope.

My husband is having a very difficult time with all of it. I am keeping busy researching the cancer diet and how to prepare for him when he comes home. I am a dog trainer and spend a lot of time with dogs and their owners. However, nothing prepared me for this. Please keep Remy in your thoughts today if you read this.

Remy 11-12-18

This is Remy a day or so ago on some pain medicine having a nap on his bed.
