Update on Hunter, aka “Super Dog”

Hi everyone,

I am very happy to report that Hunter is doing so much better these days!

Eating, sleeping, and on nice days ~ walking at the park.  It’s been bitter cold here in Wisconsin lately.

He celebrated his 8 month Ampuversary (YEAH!!) with a new pup… Harley.

Harley came home on January 26th and Hunter just loves him.  It has really perked him up.


Funny thing is… we really got Harley for Hailey, but she is still warming up to the new addition!

She’s such a Prima Dona Monkey Butt!

Hunter has been eating well and has all of his supplements back into his raw diet.  We just need to get him back on Artemisinin and Butyrex next week.

Last Monday we pulled him from the oncology trial.  His quality of life is very important to us and the Palladia was wrecking his GI system.  We might try another round of IV chemo in the future, as he has always tolerated that well.   We’re not sure when we’ll take updated chest xrays,  but we’ll get him in for a urinalysis this coming week as he’s been drinking quite a bit.  Not out of the woods just yet, but things are looking up for our boy.

Wishing happy days to everyone and give your pups a hug from us!

    I’m glad his quality of life is coming back to normal and that he’s got a little puppy to show the ropes to! How exciting! Great update. Keep us all posted on how he does getting back to his normal routine and what you decide with other chemo options.

    Oh you lucky dawg Hunter! Harley looks like a fun time! What a sweetie pie. Congrats on the new pack member.

    I’m sorry you had to get out of the trial but your people are really in tune with what’s impawtant — that Quality of Life is #1, so now there’s no more upset tummies, just good times on and on. Woo hoo!

    So glad to hear that Hunter is getting back to normal and enjoying life. And it is wonderful that he has taken to the new puppy 🙂

    I love the picture of Hunter and little Harley, he is just the proud big brother. But more important, I am so happy to see Hunter looking so good and back to happy, healthy Hunter. Too funny about Hailey. Maybe you can take her shopping and buy her something frilly to let her know she is still the only girl!

    I love the picture. Hunter is such a proud older brother. But, most important is that he is back to being happy, healthy Hunter.
    Too funny about Hailey. Maybe you can take her shopping and buy her something frilly to reinforce that she is still the only girl!

    I’m a little late to this post, but I’m so happy to hear Hunter is feeling so much better! You have a strong boy there, he’s a true Tripawd Warrior! I’m sure he’ll teach the new young pup to be a perfect gentleman! Stay strong Hunter, all of the Tripawds Nation is pulling for you and wishing you well!!
