Happy Birthday Bear

I’m just popping in to share a milestone we saw yesterday. My Great Dane, Bear, celebrated his 9th birthday yesterday. This is a huge birthday to celebrate, because in April 2016, he was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer), and given about 2-4 months. It is typically a very aggressive cancer, so we were super surprised when we celebrated his 8th birthday last year. I never imagined that 19 months later we would still be celebrating birthdays with him!

He still acts like a puppy 90% of the time, but hasn’t shown signs of pain or discomfort. He eats all of his meals. He has had a few lumps pop up on his chest, so it has probably spread. We take it day by day, and know that it could change in a flash.
