Hello 2019
Another year has passed here at twodo.gs, and I’m happy to report that all our doggos are alive and mostly well. Yuki, the sickest, still has two cancers to battle.  His osteosarcoma is very apparent in his front leg, and he is getting bone-strengthening treatments once-a-month to delay the inevitable break.  He’s lost most of ...

Pecos’s Story: Surgery, discoveries and treatment
It’s been a while since Pecos’s Story had an update and a lot has happened in that time. A mentioned before, Pecos had an X-Ray done to see if there was any sign of cancer in his lungs or chest. The X-Ray was clean, although there was some concern about the size of his heart ...

Yuki’s Story Continues: From Bad to Worse
Yuki’s struggle against cancer has received a significant blow this week, and the prognosis is not good. First to recap how we got here, it was October, 2017, when we took Yuki to the Vet for a skin problem and Yuki left the Vet diagnosed with stage 4 Lymphoma. We got Yuki to the Oncologist ...

Pecos’s Story: X-Ray
We took Pecos to the Vet to get him a chest x-ray as requested by the Oncologist.  The Dr. wanted to see if there was any sign of cancer in his lungs.  Thankfully, there wasn’t.  Not only that, but shockingly to all concerned, Pecos didn’t even have to be sedated to get two side x-rays ...

Dandy really hates thunder.

Our Golden Retriever from Turkey has a really bad fear of thunder or loud noises.  When storms roll through she goes bananas running around the house looking for somewhere to hide.  We have found great success using the Thundershirt to calm her down.  She gets excited when she sees it pulled out and practically jumps ...

Yuki’s Story Continues: End of first round
Yuki ended the first round of his second time in chemo this week with a dose of Mitoxantrone. The Oncologist feels that Yuki is doing well enough he can take two weeks off instead of just one, and doesn’t even need to come in for the off-week blood test. I’m hoping this is the case ...

Pecos’s Story: The Beginning
It now appears the Pecos has Oral Melanoma on his lower lip. We now have two dogs with cancer. We took Pecos to the Vet last night to have her look at a growth on his lip. She did an aspiration for an official prognosis, but she’s pretty sure it’s Melanoma. He doesn’t seem to ...

Yuki’s Story: The Story (sadly) Continues
Yuki’s cancer has returned. After about 5 months of celebrating Yuki’s successful journey through chemotherapy to fight and put his Lymphoma into remission, July’s discovery that his lymph nodes were swelling again was very upsetting. We had noticed in June/July that his skin problems were returning and Mom then noticed his lymph nodes increasing in ...

Digger Dandy

As mentioned previously, we have a new arrival, Dandy. She has been a very good dog and adapted extremely quickly to our home. We tell folks it’s like she’s been with us for years. One thing, however, the little rascal loves doing when she’s outside and excited, is dig holes. Everywhere. Now, to be honest, ...
