Tuesday March 30th 2010 Today was Josie’s first round of chemo. She did really well! We drove home and she slept the entire way…no big surprise there…I am so not looking forward to her getting sick….I feel so bad having to put her through this.

Wednesday March 31st 2010 Josie seemed chilled this morning so I covered her with warm blankets out of the dryer (her fav). She slept late this morning and laid outside in the sun for a bit in the afternoon. We took just a short walk with breaks on her mat.

Her appetite isn’t the greatest, but no vomiting or diarrhea so far.

Thursday April 1st 2010 I can honestly say she seems pretty normal….just missing a leg….when is she going to get sick??? will she get sick???

Friday April 2nd 2010 We went to the Brewer game tonight. It was the longest I have left her since her surgery. Came home and she was fine! I really worry too much. I think she slept the entire time I was gone.

Today she ate dry food on her own…with no coaxing….huge step…

Saturday April 3rd 2010 Normal day….walked for about an hour with two short breaks…she didn’t seem to need them, maybe we will nix the mat from now on.

Sunday April 4th 2010 Took our regular route off leash, but decided not to carry her mat…she got a bit slow at the end of the loop, but she made it! We were down in the park for a total of 1 ½ hours!!!! She got to interact with lots of dogs today and did really, really well!!!!

Can’t say much more than…WOW… she is really amazing!!!!

    Wow! 1+ hr walks! Amazing indeed…. Out of curiousity, how long was she down before surgery? I still can’t walk Maggie for an hour 🙁 Glad Josie seems to be tolerating the chemo well!
