    I’m so glad to see these blog posts about PT work for our tripawders!!! As I’ve said before, I can’t say enough about how a “little goes a long ways” with this work. And it’s so fun for the dogs – lots of treats involved! :-)

    This is my first comment and I don’t know which forum to comment in.
    Tomorrow morning Jamie will have his left rear leg amputated due to cancer.
    This site has given me hope. Thank you.
    I am gearing up to buy an AST Get-A-Grip Harness. I just purchased the Bella hot & cold Pain Relief pad.
    I understand that the doctors still don’t know which type of cancer Jamie has, whether it’s chondrasarcoma or osteosarcoma. After the amputation they are going to send away a large slice. Plus whole body x-rays and 3d lung & abdomen.
    Does this sound familiar to anyone?
