Mason had his scans last week and he still remains cancer free! His bloodwork is all normal still too so no ill effects from the chemo. Mason is still kicking ass and taking names 😉

    So happy for you! You go Mason! I lost my beautiful lab girl Shaya to cancer one year ago the 29th of this month. She was my special girl, I miss her every day and always will. Maybe one day we will not have this awful disease in our beloved pets and our humans. Congrats and prayers to stay free from cancer.

    My chocolate was just diagnosed with lymphoma. We are scared because we are not sure if we can afford the treatment. My kids are so sad as the rest of the family. Please pray for her. Her name is Ginger.

    Well we have lost too many to count to cancer,, our last lab was a beautiful healthy young man full of energy,, till my husband is in the vet business and he had lymphoma,,, we had The Best Care and aggressive treatment,, it didn’t bother him one bit!! Never lost a beat,,Sage here in CA. wanted to do a write up on his great progress and two days later he was gone!!!! I’m sorry I know u are doing all you can to help our kids,, BUT NEVER AGAIN WILL WE GET FALSE HOPE AND PUT OUR BABIES THROUGH ANY OF THIS,, till something really concrete turns up,, at least a lot of the Doctor’s now agree with us,, they know not enough progress yet!! I give them credit for that!!! Good luck to any one facing this,,,, to each is own, good luck!!

    Yay!!! Yippee!!! Woo Hoo!!! Way to go Mason!!! Keep on kicking cancer’s butt and proving the prognosis and statistics wrong!!! May you follow in my Tripawd Charley’s paw prints!

    My Charley, a chocolate Lab, was 2-1/2 years old when he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer). He had his left front leg amputated followed by 5 rounds of Carboplatin chemo. Charley was cancer free for 3 years.

    Unfortunately, we found out on 10/24/13 that Charley’s OS came back as a met underneath his amputation scar…. almost exactly 3 years to the day after his amputation. Charley had surgery on 11/8/13 to remove the cancer and the surgeon was able to get clear margins (1cm at the narrowest margin because the tumor extended down to his brachial plexus and 2cm at the widest margin). The CT scan showed that his lungs and other organs were clear. Charley has had 4 of 6 rounds of chemo so far, he’s alternating between Doxorubicin (Adriamycin) and Lomustine (CCNU).

    Charley is now 5-3/4 years old and he will celebrate his 40 Month Ampuversary on 2-28-14…so he has lived over 1/2 of his life as a Tripawd and with OS, so miracles can and do happen! We’re looking forward to celebrating his 6th Birthday on 3-29-14!

    Sending Mason lots of positive thoughts and prayers!!!

    Hugs and chocolate Labby kisses,
    Ellen and Charley
