Of car shows, (half) ampuversaries and chemo treatments

My pawrents took me on an exciting outing last weekend – to a car show. Actually Daddy was working at the food stand for his Kiwanis Club, so Mommy took me to see him and get some lunch. Guess what – I was the hit of the park and not all those fancy cars!! Everyone wanted to know about me and why I only had 3 legs. My pawrents were more than happy to gush about me.

One nice lady saw me and had to come over to meet me. After hearing my story, she told my pawrents that she was so happy to see that they “didn’t give up on me” given my diagnosis and age.  I heard my pawrents say that I would be with them for a lot longer.  That makes me feel very, very happy.  I guess they think I am special.  This nice lady even offered to sit with me if my pawrents wanted to walk around.  She bent over to pet me and say hi, so I gave her kisses on her face.

Here I think my Daddy is mugging for the camera, but all I care about is looking at that cool car!!

Is there another car over that way?

This way to more cars, Daddy!!

Now then, today is my 2 1/2 month ampuversary.  Yeah for me, but my pawrents sure don’t know how to celebrate very good.  I had to go to the hospital and my 4th chemo treatment — yucky!  I am really tired right now.  The good thing about today is I got to see my friend Angel.  He is pawesome and nice to me.  He said I always look so sharp in my Ruff Wear harness.  My pawrents asked him if they have a lot of Tripawds in the hospital, and he said they did.  So guess what my pawrents did.  They had printed off a bunch of business cards from the Tripawd website and gave them to Angel to give to other Tripawds so they can find the same caring family that we have found.  Angel said he loves the saying that it’s better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.  So look for more members from the Southwest suburbs of Chicago!

I hope all my Tripawd friends are doing well.

    For crying out loud – celebrating your 2 1/2 month ampuversary with a chemo treatment?!

    Naturally, you were the hit of the park. You are indeed very, very special, Daisy.

    four chemo treatments in the book – that’s GREAT! i think you and i must be related, because i sure could see my don eyeing those old cars too..what’s a ’71 chevelle, and why does it seem so appealing…i’m not sure i get all that. glad you had a good time at the show, hope you got to sneak a little food from the kiwanis.

    Trying to catch up on some of your recent posts since you have been so kind to read my blog about Chloe!

    It really is too funny how so many people are interested in 3 legged dogs when they see one! Its like an ice breaker or something! Chloe too would get attention nearly every day I walked her in our neighborhood. Guess being 4 legged really is overrated…

    Ginger certainly is a golden beauty and I am sure adores all the attention 🙂
