Chemo anyone?

Well, it’s about time for us to update Billy’s blog. Billy has been doing so well! He really wants to run around and play with us, but we won’t let him play too hard yet. He has been to the (currently snow-covered) beach by our home a couple of times now, and he really wants to take off and have a good time like he used to–we can’t wait to let him! He also has started to lay on his “lack of leg” (as we call it) pretty regularly, but only when he his on the couch or our bed.

On the 15th Billy had his first chemo treatment. The vet who’s treating us, who happens to be my brother-in-law, said that today would be the day that Billy might start to feel the effects of chemo. It seems to have gone well and he hasn’t gotten sick from it yet, so we’re hoping that he will get sick at all. He will get bloodwork done next week Monday to see how his body is reacting to the chemo. Hopefully that looks good and we can continue with his treatment as planned.

Billy is taking the hungry dog thing to the next level now. Here is a list of things for which Billy believes he deserves a treat:
Putting on/taking off his clothes, climbing the stairs, waking up, going to sleep, seeing commercials on tv, being brown, eating dinner, eating breakfast, going to the bathroom, chewing a bone, and eating a treat

Here are some visual updates on Billy.

    Ohhh Billy you are just looking so terrific! I’m happy to hear the chemo isn’t bothering you and you’re still the same crazy pup. How lucky you are to have a relative who’s helping with your care!

    P.S. with those kinds of adorable tricks you do, I agree that treats are definitely in order.
