Super Stu’s 2 Month Ampuversary!

Posted by: | September 4, 2017 | 12 Comments |

Hi again folks!
Phew! It’s been a couple of busy weeks for me and my pack… I’ve had a great time!

I have to start off by thanking Sally and her Alumni, Amy & Rusty & Jerry’s Pack for adding to my Top Reasons for wanting to become a Tripawd! The list went from Top 10 all the way up to 17! The challenge is still out there to make it to the Top 20!

“Life is good!”

Last weekend was the best… my Uncle Evan & Aunt Des came to visit and it was all about me! Even though I had seen my Uncle Evan within the last month, I can’t get enough of him… and my Aunt Des hasn’t been here since the spring so I REALLY enjoyed seeing her! They smothered me in kisses, they brushed me and gave me extra, extra treats! (ha! No wonder I gained extra weight at my weigh in last week!)

My Uncle & Aunt Ruv, Ruv, Ruv Me!

We all got to go for a boat ride on The Toaster and they took tons of pictures of me. I think I’m gonna be a movie star! I just Ruv my people so much!

Me and Uncle Ev goinโ€™ for a ride!


A day out on The Toaster with my favourite people!

I even got to go on a road trip this past week. It was a long day, but I did really good surfing in the back of the truck. It’s one of my favourite things to do! My favourite person Anne came with us and we all had a really good day.

Then I got to go on another boat ride, with our friend Rod! I can’t believe I was lucky enough to go out twice in one week! I think people should visit more often! My Mum & Dad have made the docks a lot safer for me and I can walk the double planks with no problem at all! Mum laughs at me every time… I think my bum wiggles!

My Mum & Dad are rock stars (๐Ÿ˜†), so they get to travel to lots of different places, so that lots of people can come and listen to them sing my Dads songs. (Me & Chester are their biggest fans and would love to part of their stage show!)

Me & my brother, Chester Molester!!

When Mum & Dad go away, I get to go to my favourite persons house and we babysit each other! I stay over night and Anne really does spoil me rotten, I never want to leave! There is a black cat who lives there, her name is Cranky… it’s a very fitting name! I can’t understand why my pawrents love her so much, ’cause all she does is give me dirty looks and constantly taunts me with her walk by’s! I know better and avoid eye contact at all costs!

My favourite babysitter, with Dad

I even got some hugs and treats from Anne’s neighbours. At first they weren’t sure if my missing leg would scare them, but just one look at my hoppy face and they weren’t worried anymore! You see, Tripawds really do make people Hoppy!

So you wouldn’t believe how lucky I was yesterday, not only did I have a great babysitting night with my favourite person, but she also came on a boat ride with us the next day! Three rides in The Toaster in two weeks! How much fun is that?! I’m glad my pawrents realize that I am now feeling all better again!

So in my last blog, (Top 10 Reasons…) I told you about my Raskety Rats that I killed… well this week, as me & my Mum were standing on the deck, we saw a young bear come out of the woods. Right into our front yard! What a nerve! Well, I was going to run that bear right off our property, but Mum spoiled my fun!!! She made me stay and even though I kept winging at her, she wouldn’t let me protect my house from that big black monster! My Mum thinks she did a good job of imitating my loud bark and even though that bear ran off, I nearly laughed at her imitation! That bear must have been really young ’cause a big wise one would’ve laughed at her!

I made my Mum proud at the Dr.’s last week… They had a super hard time trying to find my veins again for blood work and I was very, very, very good… (even if I do say so myself!) They couldn’t draw blood out of my front or back leg and decided it would be best (best for who?!) if they took blood from my jugular vein!!! Aaaaack!
They want to keep my other back leg for the Chemo next week and so a horrid sheath of leather went over my big nose, Dr. Laurie was the traitor who held my head back, while Dr. Bill did the nasty deed. And this was after I took them a nice tasty lunch as a token of appreciation for all their hard work! Sheeeeesh! You can’t trust anyone! I mean, what does it take to bribe someone these days?!๐Ÿ˜‰
Thankfully my numbers came back normal enough and so we will go ahead with the regular amount of Carboplatin, when it arrives after been on back order, sometime next week! One way or another, we’ll kick this Cancers’ butt! In the meantime, my veins get a little rest before the next lot!

“I am so relaxed!”

It has been literally, Smokin’ Hot here in British Columbia, since the beginning of July! We are all very, very tired of the heat and the smoke in the air. Our province has been under a State of emergency, due to the all the wild fires, for a couple of months now and there is no relief in sight. My pawrents are worried cause everything is SO DRY and anything could set off a forest fire. We have to be thinking about all the food and water my brothers and sister would need, if we were to be evacuated… I sure hope they don’t forget the tin of treats! I’ll make sure I remind them!

So until next time, keep grinning your goofy grins and keep those humans hoppy!

    STU! First, Hoppy Ampuversary! You are living large and loving life like nopawdy can. All those boat rides, groupies and treats? WOW! Lucky dawg. Glad you can go forward with chemo and continue on.

    Now about your people….well I just had to google them and holy moly they are modest! Just had a listen to the Allensong website and am so impressed. Kind of like a James McMurtry and Emmy Lou Harris sound with some Neil Young in there too. Of course your mum and dad have a one of a kind sound all their own and we LOVE IT! We are going to do an article about the Tripawd Rock Stars among us, stay tuned.

    Hope the weather is cooling off for you guys. So icky!

      Hey there Jerry’s Pack!
      My Mum & Dad say you are too kind! They blushed when they read your comments! ๐Ÿค— Emmy Lou Harris? Wow! My Mum loves her! Mum & Dad say THANK YOU SO MUCH! They can’t wait to see who else is a rock star, I bet there tons of talented people out there! They will definitely stay tuned! ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I had my third Chemo on Thursday and It went super well! Over and done with in 15 minutes! That’s my kind of treatment!
      We are finally getting our weather system back to norm, although we’ve had a good rain fall in the last week, it wasn’t enough to seriously dampen things down. But at least the days are starting to cool down! ๐Ÿ˜…
      Thank you Jerry’s pack for being such good cheerleaders! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Hey, TT Stevie! This is TT Bailey! I have a confession. My mom made a mistake and read wrong! My amputation was July 7th. My diagnosis was July 5th. But, I still want to be your twin. We even look alike, but you are bigger and hairier. Glad you are living the exciting life! Sounds like fun! I’m tired a lot this chemo time around. But, aren’t all the treats and hugs great! I go Monday for round 3. Keep me posted on your adventures!

      Hey there TT Bailey!
      You are definitely still my Tripawd Twin buddy! What’s a couple of days in a dogs life…!
      Maybe we can be the Kibbles ‘n Bits duo too?! ๐Ÿ˜‚
      I guess this Chemo stuff really does take it out of you heh? I’m glad I missed my Chemo today, the Dr.s said that it was back ordered, so I get a couple of days reprieve… I’m definitely not a hoppy puppy when it comes to those needle things, but my Mum tells me that I need to behave ’cause it’s good for me! ๐Ÿ˜–
      Good luck to you as well Pal, stay strong and take all those extra treats, I find giving my slutty eyes works REALLY WELL!
      I think it’s great having a TT, we get to compare notes… hey, I almost forgot… I went to town today with my pawrents as usual, but today they let me get out and go to my favourite places! I got lots of ooohs & aaaahhhhs from lots of people and extra treats at my Doggy store and Mum got me TWO bully sticks! She said that can be the trade off for Sally’s suggestion of TWO bowls of ice cream! (Thanks Sally!) I’m such a lucky dog!
      You should teach your Mum how to write a blog, so that we can keep up on each other’s adventures! ๐Ÿ˜‰
      All the best for now TT Bailey! Keep hopping hoppily along!

      ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ Sally, I Ruv you! I told my mum that ice cream wouldn’t be fattening, but she wouldn’t listen… she’ll listen to you though!

    Hey there buddy, sounds like you are living it up as a tripawd. Loads of rides on the Toaster and lots of kisses from friends -sounds awesome. I’m sorry they are having trouble finding your sneaky vins but you are being such a grave boy and I’m glad they had good news. You are such a good patient.
    Wow a bear? You were right to listen to your Mom and I’m glad her imitation worked, I imagine if it had been you that bear would have run for miles!
    We are all so happy for you and your pack and so proud of you.
    We will keep working on the list.
