Still Kicking Cancer’s Butt 4 years Later!

Yep, that’s what I said, 4 years!!!!

4 years ago today Murphy had his surgery. wow.  So much has happened in that time.  I’ve made so many friends!  We’ve learned so many things.  Murphy is still a sweet, stubborn, happy dog.  He’s a bit slower than he was, but he can run the fence when he wants to, he just has to take a pain pill afterwards or he won’t be able to walk very well the next day.  Most people who meet him still remark that he seems happy, and I think he still is.  He wags his tail, seems to smile at me, moans and groans when he’s rolling around and barks at us like he’s trying to get us to understand what it is he wants.   He seems to enjoy his chiropractic adjustments, and I think that they’re helping with the stiffness he had in his back.  Tonight we celebrated with steak and apple-peanut butter muffins for the dogs


   watching me cut the steak up lol           num, num, num!

   notice that the smallest one is the 1st one done!        Muffins!

Love you guys!!

Donna, Glenn & Murphy

    Happy, hoppy 4 year ampuversary Murphy! Couldn’t be happier for you guys! You are truly one of the great role models for Tripawds everywhere – and proof that miracles really do exist! I’m so happy I got to meet you and your pawrents last September at the Puppy Up. Your smile really does light up a room. Thank you so much, for showing the world that a cancer diagnosis is not the end, that there is a lot of living to be done. What a great celebratory dinner for you and your family! We love you, Murphy!
