Trouble is still doing amazingly well. We finally have gotten past the UTI that kept coming back. Yea!!

Today she had a long outing and is now totally tuckered out. We had a picnic at the Big Thicket National Reserve with the folks who run the Tripawds website & forum. Trouble enjoyed being outdoors for such a long time and really wore herself out investigating all the new smells :crazy2: We took her on one of the short trails, but it was a little more than she needed. We could tell she was really getting tired, but couldn't get her to lay down and rest. >( Jim carried her part of the way at the end to give her a rest. I'll probably give her a pain pill tonight just in case.

After that we went by to see her nudder mudder (the friend we got her from). That was one long day for a pup with three legs :shock:

And now she sleeps.....

Yesterday was Trouble's two month post chemo checkup. Her bloodwork is perfect, heart and lungs sound great, She goes back in 2 months. He gave me the option of stretching that to three months, but I'm not comfortable with that yet. I told him we would see him in two :wink:

I had been testing for for several days prior to taking her in for boarding with 1/2 a tramadol twice daily. She just seems slow getting up and down, stiff or sore, not so much pain. We discussed this at length. Dr F didn't have a problem with her keeping that routine, but I'd prefer not to keep her on pain meds long term. So we went to the glucosamine discussion. I'm going to switch to this and see if I get the same or better results that I did with the tramadol. I would rather have her on a supplement long term. :|

When we got home she went to sleep. She's been out cold ever since. She must have had a really tiring visit at the kennel this time. :nono:

Go Trouble, you're our beautiful girl.

Big congrats on the great test results! Give Trouble a hug from Kato & me!

I just ordered this for Kato because someone told me it worked miracles for their Rottie.
