One Beagle's Quest to Kick Cancer's Arse

Happy Cancer-Free 9th Birthday, Will Beagle!

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 11:35 pm on Saturday, April 6, 2013

Hello Tripawds Nation! I am Will Beagle’s human mama, and I thought I’d post this week as Will Beagle has hit a few significant milestones since he last posted.  First, he’s celebrating his ninth birthday on Tuesday and we’re happy to report that he’s celebrating this birthday cancer-free.  He visited his doggie oncologist last week […]

Happy New Year: Chemo Done!

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 1:24 am on Friday, January 4, 2013

Happy New Year to the Tripawds World! I hope everyone ate too much over the holidays, and enjoyed time with their friends and family.  This year, I was able to walk in the famous Ocean Beach Holiday Parade with the other Sunset Cliffs Animal Hospital dogs!  I almost walked the entire route (almost 2 miles!) […]

Chemo, Round Three, Check. Now, Time For Turkey!

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 6:58 pm on Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Hi Tripawds Nation.  Apologies for being incommunicado, but I’ve been too busy with my trips to the beach and the park, and just generally being a dog again!  Time has been going so quickly that I just realized I’m over three months from my amputation, and my friends and family are really surprised by my […]

One Month Later!

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 8:31 pm on Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Hello Tripawds World: I just realized I am one month into my life as a tripawd, and I must admit I can’t complain.  I still get to do all the things I love, and now can use my tripawd status as a means to leverage more love and attention (insert evil laugh).  My pawrents got […]

Week Three: Sutures out, chemo started!

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 10:30 pm on Wednesday, October 3, 2012

Hello World! Yesterday was so eventful that I passed out before getting my entry posted last night. Mom and Grandpaw took me to go see Dr. Burke, my oncologist, and Dr. Aiken, my surgeon.  Dr. Aiken gave me the thumbs up to get my sutures out and get the chemo party started.  Dr. Burke also […]

Day 12: C-Day Delayed

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 7:54 pm on Thursday, September 27, 2012

Friends:  As occurred many decades ago while thousands of brave souls readied to cross the English Channel as part of D-Day had to stand down due to inclement weather, my C-Day had to be delayed because must have picked up the stomach bug that plagued Izzy Lou over the weekend.  The oncologist does not want […]

Day 10: Top 10 Good Things About Being a Tripawd

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 10:12 pm on Monday, September 24, 2012

In honor of my 10th day post-amp, I’ve put together a Top 10 List (Letterman-Style) for the Tripawds Community: 10.  Breakfast in Bed:  My pawrents have been kind enough to bring me breakfast in bed every morning.  I think this may be coming to an end soon as I’m more than capable of eating standing […]

Day Eight: Sarcoma. Boo.

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 8:41 pm on Saturday, September 22, 2012

Well, all, the verdict is in.  My mom talked to Dr. Aiken at Veterinary Specialty Hospital and the biopsy results indicate that my tumor was sarcoma.  Next step, chemo.  It’s an odd case – either I had the sarcoma for years and it didn’t go elsewhere, or it’s a recent development.  I continue to be […]

Day Seven: No news, but staying positive

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 11:43 pm on Friday, September 21, 2012

Hello Friends – No news so far on the tests on my paw pad, unfortunately.  But we’re keeping up those positive thoughts!   I slept through the entire night last night, and even got to snooze on my pawrents bed for a few hours before mom moved me down on to the dog bed on the […]

Day Five: Sun, Glorious Sun

Filed under: Uncategorized — tresbeagles at 5:03 am on Thursday, September 20, 2012

I nearly slept through the entire night!  It felt great to get some solid snoozing in.  I only woke my parents up at 5am because I had to go outside to use the restroom.  Mom took me for a few short walks  – one was down the street, around the corner, up the alley, and […]
