Super Stu’s 3 Month Ampuversary!

Posted by: | October 11, 2017 | 21 Comments |

Super Stu’s 3 Month Ampuversary!

Hi folks, Stewie here again!!! I have just celebrated my 3 Month Ampuversary! That’s 3 months and I’m still going strong!💪 I have made my Mum & Dad so very very Hoppy!🎉

“Just hangin’ Mum!”

I know I’m a lot stronger now ‘cause I ran after my Dad on the UTV and i had a blast running like the wind! I haven’t been able to do that in forever!😁 I stay strong by resting really good & I am back eating my 3 meals a day. Dad says that he has noticed me sleeping better lately with less moving around at night. I don’t notice ‘cause I’m sleeping to heavy! 😴 😴
Boy am I ever good at begging for treats now! Mum says that I can’t ALWAYS HAVE TREATS! and I say WHY NOT?! She says that I have to lose wate?! (what is this wate thing?!🤔…) how can I lose something when I don’t know what it is that I’m looking for? 👀😋

It’s been a little quieter and cooler over the past month. But I’ve still had fun! I go to town every week with Mum and Dad and everybody I meet just loves me and I luuuuv the attention I get!🤗
Mum brought home 3 new hedgehogs for me over the last month! I Ruv the sound they make when I tickle them! But they run out of tickle, so Mum has to get me a new one ‘cause I Ruv them that much!😁😁😁

“Do you want to play with one of my Hedgies?!”

It’s a good thing that my coat is growing back in nicely and thank goodness for that! (there is no more scabbing left! No more itchy spots yay!👏) It went from really hot to really cool and we can start to see the snow coming down the mountain tops. It won’t be long before it gets to us! 🍂🍁🏔☃️🎄
Mum says that she’s worried for when winter comes ‘cause she’s worried about me slipping. But I just laugh and say no worries Mum. But truthfully I’m a little nervous, cause it can get pretty icy! I’ll have to hop VERY CAREFULLY!😬

“Look Ma! Only 3 Paws!”

Last week I went for my fourth round of Carboplatin chemotherapy… it went super well! I have had no complications with my blood work either, so we get the full shabang each time. (Let’s hope that keeps up for the next two sessions!) Dr. Laurie is very impressed with how long I can stay still! She must know that I do it for her ‘cause I really like her! She may prod and poke, but she always says she’s sorry and she gives me yummy treats after!🥓 I only have to get two more icky Chemo sessions done! 💉💉🤞

Me and my Mum & Dad and my favourite person Anne went on another boat-ride this week! I had so much fun! We even ate lunch on board! 👅 it was also very cool cause we saw a snow storm blow in. It rained on the lake and snowed on the mountain tops… 🏔 and the sun came out after! It was beautiful! We’re very lucky this year ‘cause the lake is staying up higher than usual for this time of year. Especially considering the very dry summer we had!

A Day out on Toasty McBoaty!


A micro storm blowing through!

Ha! What storm!

Then today, Mum & Dad took me into town for my blood work and then let me walk downtown with them (my old stomping grounds!) and some of my old friends were there and they were all super hoppy to see me! I’m glad we got a picture to celebrate my 3 Month Ampuversary!

“My old stomping grounds and all the people that Ruv me!

I really am so very hoppy and all, but I’m sad too ‘cause I’ve heard some crappy news this last week from Mum, about some of my friends from Tripawds that I have come to know. I know I haven’t known many of you for long, but you hold a very special place in my heart! I say 💩 on this nasty stinking cancer!

So Until next time my friends… Stay strong and keep hopping hoppily along and most importantly, keep making your pawrents smile! 💞😊💖

“Ruv ❤️ You!”

Sloppy kisses from Stewie👅 🐕 🐾

    Super Stewie!!!
    Congratulations Buddy! We are Super Hoppy to read about your 3 month ampuversary. We are also so happy to hear that your latest chemo went well. I really hope they continue to go smoothly and are pain-free.
    You have a whole hedgehog village (albeit a quiet one) what a very lucky boy. The views from the toaster are stunning. We truly wish we were there for that ride. You be careful on any ice and let us know how it goes as it sounds like you will beat us to the snow this year.
    So glad we logged in and read your awesome update today.
    Loads of Hugs for you and your amazing family.
    Amy & Rusty

      Thanks Rusty & Amy! I had my 5th nasty 🤢 injection 💉 today! Only one more to go! I was a very good boy again today, ‘cause I know my veins are really hard to work with. Everyone, especially ME, is going to be relieved when this icky stuff is over and done with!
      Mum doesn’t know I know this, but she fiund me ANOTHER Hedgie and has put it away for Christmas! She forgets that I may only have 3 paws, but there’s nuttin’ wrong with my nose👃!
      We had a brutal storm here yesterday and unfortunately the Toaster was in a bit of a wreck and is stranded on the rocks! You guys will have to come and join us next year! I Ruv the snow, but Mum says it has to wait until the Toaster is safe and sound and out of the lake for the season!
      Thanks for reading my blog, I’m getting better at it every time!

      Nose touches and bum sniffs to my Pal Mr Rusty Bucket!

    Stewie! Pawsome news for your 3 month ampuversary! You are beautiful and I’m so happy you’re loving life on 3! My Dobe Nitro rocked it for over 3 years on 3 and totally lived life to the fullest. As for snow and ice, I think I gave your mom an idea on how to help you with that – Chicken Grit. Winter was one of Nitro’s favorite times, even though he had to wear a coat, unlike the gorgeous one you already have. He loved to drop his ball in front of the shovel, and wait for me to kick it away, only to grab it at the last minute. Needless to say, shoveling took a LONG time with him around. I’m so going to miss that this year….maybe there will be snow at The Bridge??? Keep up the good work, buddy, we’re cheering for you!

      Paula, Angel Nitro has been one of my true inspirations! Nitro and many other Warriors are who I fight for and aspire to be when I grow up!
      And Nitro! 3 yrs and 3 months… I still have 3 full years to fight for!!! I would love to wear the Warrior badge as proudly as you do buddy!
      Mum’s going on a road trip next week and she has ‘chicken grit’ on her list. It was a great suggestion. Thanks!
      Oh & Absalutely there is snow at the 🌈 Bridge! Anything our little loves’ desire, is at the Bridge…❤️ You were such a Tease with Mum weren’t you! 😍 It sounds like the chicken grit worked wonders for your ball antics! Have a roll in the snow for us sweet Angel!
      Huds to you Mum and May your memories bring more smiles than tears this coming season my darling!❤️

      There is definitely snow at the rainbow bridge. We can’t even understand – sun, snow, water, rain, puddles of dog food! You name it, our pups are just enjoying life waiting to show us all they’ve been up to!

    You’re looking great Stewie! Congrats on being more than halfway done with the chemo.

    Congratulations Stewie! You are doing so well! I am new to the tripawd world too. Thankfully my vet told Mommy that it is more important that I eat right now so FILL ME UP with all the wet food I want … and TREATS! Well he didn’t say to fill me up on treats but he was really nice and said I could still have them. Mommy asked him about my weight and he not to worry.

    It is great seeing you so happy. It gives us all hope!!

    Hey, TT Stewie! It’s you favorite TT Bailey! Love, love your pics and post. Who would have thought 3 months ago we would be doing fun things on 3 legs! I can out walk/run my mom now and she gets scared I’m gonna fall. She’ll get over it someday. As for that “wate” thing—I hate it! I enjoyed too many treats between chemo 3 & 4 and gained 2 lbs, so now I have to beg really hard at night to get more. You should hear me sing-your mom and dad would be proud of my evening vocal skills. My pawents—not too proud.

    Here’s to our last 2 chemistry! May they be as easy on us as the first 4 and may they work!

    Your buddy,
    TT Bailey

      Hi TT Bailey! Great to hear from you!
      Yeah, 3 months has flown by, especially when you live the life of a Tripawd! I’m so hoppy to hear that you are doing so great as well! See! Tripawd Twins Through and through!
      I’m glad my Mum takes lots of pictures, ‘cause I wanna be a model when I grow up! I’ve entered a few Calendar contests and I suppose this is why Mum wants me to keep in shape!
      Ha! I was showing Mum how good I could run down to the lake the other day and I almost went head over paws! I was a little embarrassed! 🤗 She did tell me not to be so cocky!
      Mum & Dad said they would love to hear your begging song!🎼 Maybe you could be on their next CD?!😜 I bet everyone here on Tripawds would love to hear your song too!😁 Have you started a blog?
      Here’s to only one more blood test and two more nasty Chemo needles!💉💉💉 We should have a Pawty when were both done our treatments! You know what that means right?! 🥓🍗🌭🧀🍔🌭🍕🍦🍧🍨
      Have I told you how beautiful I think you are Bailey?! 🤗😍

    Happy 3 month Ampuversary Stewie!! 🎉
    I loved this picture in the forum so content and happy just being Stewie!!

    Stewie, Purrkins understand the wate thing! All it means is less food for me and I swear I’m STARVING !😉 I think you look fantastic but we understand we had to go thru that too ! No fun for your Mum either Stewie:)

    Of course everyone loves you Stewie I don’t know how they couldn’t with 4 or 3 legs;) Your one handsome big bear 🐻just want to snuggle with you!

    I think Mum needs to add to your 100 reasons to be a tripawd
    You get new Hedgies when you tickle them too much;) Endless amount of Hedgehogs for Stewie!

    Yay for only 2 more icky chemo’s Stewie your almost done Buddy! Glad to see your got to go on your boat with your favorite people your hair is coming back purrfect timing for you to stay warm!!

    Tell Mom to look around on the forums on the ice there are things you can do to help, lots of other Tripawd parents also have had the same concerns & have given tips ! I hate the ice too it’s slippery & dangerous, no matter how many legs we have!

    Sending you love & sloppy kisses!
