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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

As mentioned in other posts, Mom has a Turkish background.  This means we eat at Turkish food restaurants from time to time.  Me, I’m an admittedly very picky eater, while Mom is not.  So it is always funny to me that one of the things I picked up a love for from Turkish restaurants is ...

Twodo.gs 2017
2017 wrap-up It was a good year, for the most part, for Yuki and Pecos this year. Before November things were quiet but enjoyable for our two mutts. On the blog side, 2017 started with a few posts in February, but things went quiet for most of the year until the unfortunate news we received ...

Yuki’s Story: Round 2
The second round completes The Holiday season is upon us and Yuki is finishing “Round 2” of his chemotherapy. The coming week will be his rest week with only a blood CBC to be performed to check his overall health. Nothing changed this time from the previous round. Vincristine, Cytoxan, Vincristine again, and finally Doxorubicin. ...

Yuki’s Story: Week 3 & 4
Vincristine Returns and Doxorubicin bows This week Yuki received his second helping of Vincristine. This was the first time the oncologist made an adjustment to the dosage by backing off just a little bit due to the diarrhea Yuki had after the first time around with Vincristine. Yuki tolerated the week 3 therapy quite well ...

If there’s one thing on the earth that Pecos is great for it’s being photographed. Yuki, with his previous modeling career, literally runs away any time a camera is pointed at him. Well, maybe not “runs away”, but he’ll look away, start fidgeting, and yes, even get up and walk away. Pecos, on the other ...
