Jerry says to live one day at a time…

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Just throw the ball, will ya?

Come on! Throw the ball already!

Thank you to everyone for supportive comments and messages! You all have no idea how much it helps! Last night I said “you are right, Jerry. Thank you.” There is no way to know how long a lung met will stay there, not growing or multiplying. If it weren’t for the study we are on, we probably would never know. Caira Sue certainly doesn’t act sick. And our finances certainly wouldn’t support monthly x-rays and such!

And Tazzie, we love our new nicknames! I’ve told my whole family how I now have a fruitbat! They get such a kick out of it. Oh, Caira Sue eats like a queen, she does! To answer your question, we will be continuing the Gemzar inhalation study drug. We won’t be adding anything else to her on the chemo spectrum. She continues to eat the best of the best and get her supplements.

Eve and Romeo, you are right about Caira’s spirit! She is such an incredible creature. If she weren’t the best damn dog out there, it wouldn’t be so heart wrenching!


So we are doing the best we can with what we have. Living one day at a time, as Jerry told us to do! Lot’s of treatment of Caira’s spirit and soul. Which, of course, means swimming, running and chasing balls! Funny enough, somehow that treats our souls too, doesn’t it? I didn’t have my camera (can you believe it?!?) so these are just a couple shots from my phone. We went back to Sherman Isl. today to play on the beach. I thought it might be too chilly for a swim, but Caira did not! She was diving right in there! Now we have a very sandy, very happy dog. And no, Shelby, we never told her about the mets and have no intention of telling her!

Mmmmm… happy sandy dog. 🙂

Beautifully said, just keep following Caira Sue’s lead and enjoy every moment to the fullest. Shouldn’t be too hard if you’d just throw the ball already!

Or if you would just come play with meeeee! I am all about ‘treatment of spirit and soul’! Wow! Sherman Island looks grrreat! Caira Sue girlfriend lets play play play! I can’t wait to run and run and run with you again! When are you going to invite us up to the Island? I have a new acronym for you, FFL, Friends For Life. Thats what we are, yesh!

Sherman Island sounds exciting, doesn’t it? It’s because it’s exciting to Caira Sue! It’s really just a blip of nothing. Here’s a map:
We follow the levee road to the end. Along the levee road is a bunch of fisherman. At the end is a very small beach next to a road leading to the campground. It’s really small! But Caira likes it and there’s never anyone on it (can’t easily set up gear to fish?) so it’s enough for us!
Caira Sue says she always thought she was FFLs with Codie Rae! Let’s run, run, RUN!!!!
