Hi! My name's Cassie, too (Cassandra)! In December of 1997
I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in my right rear leg.
That was a very tough time for all of us, but if only
we'd had a crystal ball to look into the future, we
would have handled it better! I had my rear leg amputated
right away after the diagnosis to get that bad stuff
out of my body, and shortly afterward I had chemo treatments.
My owners still can't believe it, but the day after the amputation,
I was strolling around the back yard. In the first week,
I could already take walks around the block. I'm not saying
it was all easy. It took me a little while to get my strength
back and to completely regain my balance. But pretty soon
my life got back to being great. I go on a 3 mile run every
day through the mountains behind my house, and I play with
my toys from dawn til dusk, happy as a clam. In fact,
about the biggest difference in life as a 3-legged dog
is that I need more of a headstart to jump up onto the couch,
which isn't too bad.
Thanks Cynthia! Let me know if you need anything else.
I think it's a great thing you're doing, and I look forward
to seeing the site!!!
My name is China. Thanks for inviting me to join
your club. We special dogs must stick together!
I live in Houston with my master and mistress and
three (!) other dogs. There is sure a lot for me
to take care of! My leg was paralyzed when I got
hit by a car, but I can still do anything that any
plain old 4-legged dog can do, only better!
I'm sure glad my new master rescued me!
Keep up the good work.
