Still can’t believe our journey continues! Such a sweet, loving girl who’s determination and continued wiggly-butt-itis is contagious to all come across (or are slobbered by) her! Keeping it real, loving her bones, her brothers, and resting outside on her deck – the life of a princess.

Stay strong and hop along – you’ve got more joy to share with the world, my sweet Liza Jane.

Love you to the moon and back,

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

So what a year it’s been. From first hearing the devastating news, to officially celebrating tomorrow, we have reached our 1 Year Ampiversary!!!! With a lot of love, an amazing team at OSU, and tremendous support from our family and friends – Liza Jane has hit a milestone! Screw you, osteosarcoma – Liza kicked your a$$. Her amazing attitude, temperament, and overabundance of slobber has made the time seemingly fly by. We appreciate her everyday, and can hardly believe our experiences over the past year.

Thank you, Liza Jane – for being the most amazing companion. Our journey continues, and we are blessed to have you a part of our lives.



Happy New Year to Me!

Well, little miss Liza Jane has a heart of gold and a will to keep her butt just a wigglin! When we began our journey early in 2017, we weren’t quite sure if our Liza would be with us to celebrate the New Year. Her diagnosis wasn’t very positive (a combined front leg osteosarcoma and dilated cardiomyopathy), but we were determined to provide her all the support and love that we could muster. As the ball dropped on TV, she was sleeping peacefully and warm, and our hearts were happy. She continues to show her personality and, despite the occasional faceplants, continues to amaze with her strength, grace, and overabundance of love for just about everything – especially freeze dried liver treats. We are looking forward to tackling the challenges that will come in 2018, and are blessed to have such a tremendous spirit to share our life with.

Never doubt for a minute the resiliency of a tripawd, their unconditional love, and their ability to teach us more about ourselves than we care to admit.

To the moon and back, Liza.

I just thought I would post a few update pictures. We have enjoyed EVERY moment of our journey, and since her last chemo treatment – her energy, wigglyness, and slobber production hasn’t slowed a bit. Still enjoying her daily truck rides with her brother, Liza has provided an immeasurable amount of joy to many a passer-by – with her large, slobbery noggin flapping in the wind. And of course – the deck is her most favorite place outside, and her position on the sofa is reserved.

Continuing our adventures, and loving every moment.

What an exciting day! After a slight delay (only a few days) for her neutrophils to get high enough, we made our last treatment visit down to the wonderful staff at the Ohio State Veterinary Hospital – and especially the Oncology students and Doctors!

It’s hard to believe that we started this journey just a few months ago with such trepidation and anxiety – unsure of the path that our little girl was going to travel on. How will she respond to treatment, how will she thrive on just 3 legs, how will the chemo affect her, will she make it through all the treatments, and how would we all adjust to her new life?

Well, her wonderful personality continues to put smiles (and slobber) on everyone she encounters. The joy of seeing that butt wiggle 18 hours a day (hey – a girl needs to sleep, too!) has provided us such reassurance that we chose the correct path when we were first diagnosed with this terrible disease.

We are excited to see what the future holds, but for now we are extremely happy that our girl has made it through this part of her journey with very little speed bumps. Sure, she’s got three legs, turns heads as we drive (her half hanging out the window and enjoying the breeze), and sometime loses her balance and face plants while bounding up the steps – but we love every part of her! She continues to amaze us every day with her inability to let her predicament deter her happiness!

Thank you all so very much for the love and support – our Liza continues to thrive, and we couldn’t feel more blessed to have her as a part of our family. On to the next challenge – but for now, we’ll just chill out in our favorite spot – the sofa!

I’ve started a Facebook group ( for any tripawds that are in Ohio if you’re interested in getting together.
