I can not believe how well buddy is doing! i picked him up,and was so scared,but he bounded out bombarding me with kisses and licks! ¬†today he mainly slept,but did get up to go out a few times and did really well. Tonight he’s squeaking quite a bit, first dog i’ve ever had that squeaks, and although i’ve given him his pain meds he seems so alert and normal.i hope they are working. He is 7 years old, the vet said that for some reason with golden retrievers cancer usually shows up in the 7,8,and 9 years. I hope with this amputation the cancer will stay gone. it’s hard to look at sometimes and not feel like he’s upset about ¬†getting this bum deal, but that’s probably just me. He is such a happy dog:) The vet’s office always comment on how happy buddy is even when he’s in pain. I agree, what a role model!

Tomorrow is thanksgiving, I am so grateful for Buddy and for everyone here on this website that have been so warm and welcoming. The forums are awesome too! I have gained so much support,hope and comfort here.. thanks:)

Hope everyone has a great thanksgiving:)

Buddy’s mom

My golden retriever buddy had his hind leg amputated this morning, and will stay overnight at the vets. I hope he is ok, and that the adjustment for him is smooth. I feel like a fish out of water here as to how to take care of him. I bought a harness, and hopefully it will come today.hopefully it will help me help him. he is such an awesome dog, so sweet and sensitive, i hate that he has to go through this, but am so gratefull that his life has been saved. cancer is a horrible thing, i hope it’s gone for good.
Is there anyone out there reading this that has any helpful advise for me? Were you all as scared as i seem to be? I need to be confident for buddy.
I wish i could be with him right now, telling him it’s going to be ok, i hope he is ok.
