so I got to come home today and I’m so happy. I think my mom was shocked to see me walk out of the hospital door wagging my tail, but I got tired quickly. My scar and surgery site looks pretty sore. The vet told my parents not to be worried about the site and I am a really quick healer. I didn’t really want to eat too much except my favorite turkey I just really feel like sleeping. My pawrents have a couple of small areas that they sectioned off so I don’t try and do something silly. And I still have to wear my cone. Boo. Well one day at a time. I think after my really good sleep in my own bed I will wake up and eat my breakfast. The nurse showed my dad how to carry me and I kinda like that right now. I did go pee once since I’ve been home and loved all the familiar smells. I really wanted to keep walking but my back leg got really tired and my mom wouldn’t let me. Tomorrow is another day!

Yay! My pawrents came to visit and it was so great to see them. I really waggled my tail and finally ate something. My nurses were happy about that. I had that turkey my mom promised and she even left it here! I’m pretty tired and sore but went for a pee this morning. I heard that I get to go home tomorrow hopefully yippee!!



Lonely around here

My pawrents  dropped me off yesterday for my surgery. I like going to the hospital because I just love dogs and people so much so at least my mom doesn’t feel guilty like when she drops me off for my haircuts and I pretty much have to be dragged in there. My pawrents were nervous but I did really good. The surgeon called my mom and told her that everything went great and I was a good patient. I’ve just been sleeping since with an IV of medication that makes me feel a little funny. My mom brought a pair of her socks and a blanket that smells like  my pawrents and that is comforting. At the night when my mom called the nurse told her I haven’t eaten or peed yet but said that’s normal. I’m always a little picky with food as it is. But I did hear that my pawrents are coming to visit today and they will bring me turkey, my absolute favorite. Can’t wait to go home and rest but for now I’m starting the road to recovery with out that horrible evil lump anywhere to be found! 🐶❤️🐾


Tomorrow Is the big day

Hi everyone

tomorrow is my surgery day and my mom seems a bit anxious. She knows she’s making the right decision but that doesn’t make it any easier. My parents bought a bunch of mats yesterday and I was able to chase my ball down the carpet which I haven’t done in awhile. I love my ball it was one of my first toys. They also bought me a new bed which I’m not sure about yet. I’m pretty sure after my surgery my parents will have to carry me down the stairs for awhile I like being independent but will take it until I feel better. Good thing I’m little. I will keep you all posted how it goes tomorrow. Wish me luck!❤️


A strong little girl, with an anxious mom

My name is Kahlua. On Dec 18 th my dad noticed a lump in my hind leg while cleaning snow and salt off my paws. I normally get little bumps and lumps but this was different. The next day my parents took me to the vet, ugh and she seemed concerned so she took a sample from it with a small needle.

I didnt feel a thing and just ate the yummy liver treat my mom was feeding me. Fast forward til today after other tests confirmed a soft tissue sarcoma resulting in my leg having to be amputated next week! It came in a weird spot that cannot be removed with any success or prevent it from reappearing. My parents are so happy that the cancer never spread in my body but they sure are scared of what’s coming next. My parents are so great. After getting support online my mom has prepared the house and done all she can to help me try and adapt easier after my surgery. Luckily I’m not in any pain and am just happy I’m getting extra treats. Thanks to what my moms reading I think that will be stopping after my surgery so I don’t get fat. I also don’t like taking pills so I hope I can get my pain meds in a liquid form?? Anyways getting ready for some long hikes this weekend I sure hope the rain stops for them❤️
