Holiday Pups 🎁🎄
.
Haley had blood work done today to check on immune suppression. Her white cell count was great, but her anemia is worse. She’s been spitting up liquid since Saturday and this is most likely due to ulcers in stomach or a mass that is bleeding. She will go back in for another blood count check next Monday and if it is low or she might need a transfusion. Before the transfusion they will ultrasound to check on the masses in her intestine and also check for ulcers in her stomach to try to determine the cause of the anemia. We are praying really hard right now that she will not need a transfusion and that we can stabilize her blood count. We are also praying it is not a bleeding mass and that this new chemo will diminish them. She’s still very happy, although a little more tired than normal ❤️ #cancersucks #prayersneeded #sheisstrong

Home is where the heart is ❤️ It’s not the house that makes a home, it’s who’s inside it 🐶🐶

Thank you for all your prayers and support. Haley had her new chemo treatment yesterday. All went well. She came home happy and she’s doing great. Theo misses her when she is gone. Yesterday was the hardest for him. He did not want to get out of the car after we dropped her off. Once he finally got out, he did not want to come into the house. He was definitely missing Haley and later when we picked her up all was normal with him again. They are truly best friends ❤️

December = The best month of the year! 🎁

Haley goes in for her new chemo treatment this morning. The oncologist check her levels before they administer. We are praying her anemia has stabilized/improved. She’s one strong girl ❤️

Theo the snow bunny 🐶❄️

We are hoping we can take Haley to the snow this year. The snow is like the beach to her. She has a blast! We need to find a coat that covers her belly since her stomach is shaved from the ultrasounds. If anyone knows of a waterproof jacket that wraps under the belly and can keep her belly warm, we would love the suggestion 😊

Haley is one happy girl! It’s so hard to believe she’s so ill. She was doing so well that we’ve weaned her off of the nausea pills and appetite stimulant. We are so grateful that this last short term chemo has kept her happy.
.
We also have more hope! Haley’s oncologist educated us on a new chemo that is available. We are going to try it because she is still fighting and enjoying her life. There is a 50% chance that if it works it could give her 2-6+ more months. She will receive her first dosage this Monday. After that we will wait until end of Dec/early January to perform another ultrasound and check on the cancer. If the cancer is reduced, we will continue with 4 more doses every 3-4 weeks. End of December Haley will also have her heart ultrasounded to check on her Dilated Cardiomyopathy. Lots of checkpoints to battle, but she is a fighter and has so much will to be here, smile and wag her little tail. ❤️

The best gift around the Christmas tree is family ❤️ This was Theo’s first Christmas. 🎄
.
Haley continues to be happy and cheerful. She went on her longest walk in a long time and came home still wanting to play. It’s incredible how strong she is given her state. The meds her oncologist gave her are keeping her happy and comfortable. She will have a “quality of life” checkup next week, but right now she glows with joy 😊❤️ We are trying to cherish every moment we have with her.

These two are truly best friends. Theo knows Haley is ill and he doesn’t leave her side. We are so blessed to have them and they are so lucky to have each other ❤️

Haley has been a rock through her journey battling cancer. She is an example of bravery and has taught us so many things.

1. Overcome fear with love.
2. Smile, play and find joy in the little things.
3. Don’t let anything hold you back.

Haley is having a very good day today. She ate her entire breakfast and we are about to go on a short walk. ❤️ She still has some turkey leftovers for a yummy topping on her dinner 😊

Happy Thanksgiving from this silly turkey 🍁😘

Haley’s having a good day. Better than yesterday and full of tail wags. She’s already had a ton of family over to visit her. She has a great appetite and she’s been snacking on some Thanksgiving grub 😊 It’s still been an emotional day and as my mom left, tears streamed down her face. Haley has given us all so much love and today she has much more left to give ❤️

Grateful, thankful and blessed by you Haley ❤️

Haley had her ultrasound on Monday and we found out that the cancer has spread to her liver, spleen, intestines, stomach and lymph nodes. The chemo has stopped working. It’s been a very emotional couple of days as we are trying to wrap our heads around all of this. She’s been our world and has been the best big sister to Theo. We are devastated and heartbroken and it’s so hard to picture our life without her constant smile looking up at us. She has new meds that have made her comfortable and she is still very happy. We are taking things day by day right now and giving her tons of love.
.
Thank you all for your kind, heartfelt messages. I am so sorry I haven’t been able to respond to all of them, but I intend too and want you to know that I appreciate your support, prayers and love ❤️ We wish you a Happy Thanksgiving 🍁

Haley, you are my world. When I got a call from the vet this afternoon, I thought it was a call that you were ready to be picked up. When I heard it was the oncologists voice, my heart sank. I knew this wasn’t the news I was expecting.
.
You’ve fought so hard and you’ve stayed happy despite everything you’ve been through. I’m so sorry that I could not fix you. Thank you for letting me try and thank you for being the best, strongest, happiest girl you could be through all of this. My heart is so broken, but you’ve also made it so full the last 7 1/2 years.
.
I don’t know what the right next steps are, but I’m going to try to remain strong when we bring you home in a few hours. I want you to enjoy every second we have left together and know that you are so loved. You’re everything to us and it’s so hard to think of life going on without you. 💔

Haley doesn’t have an appetite today. She has her follow up ultrasound on Monday and I hope we can figure out why she has been nauseous the last few days. It’s been almost two weeks since her last chemo, so chances are it’s not that. Praying she will start to feel better today ❄️💙 #curepetcancer2017

Starting the weekend a little early with some pillow snuggles 😴
.
Haley had a rough morning yesterday. She was more lethargic than normal, wasn’t motivated by food, and threw up her breakfast. The vet advised we keep a close eye on her. Her gums have been normal color, temperature normal, and breathing is normal. We have her an anti-nausea pill which helped her a ton. By the afternoon she was ready to play. She grabbed her toys, wagged her tail and said, “let’s go play!” Praying that today will be a good day!

Weekend mode 🐶
.
We’ve had the best week since Haley’s cancer and heart diagnoses. Both Haley and Theo were super happy all week - no stomach issues, no sneezing, no chemo side effects - and can we say that we are so grateful!
.
Last night Haley and Theo got to see their best friend Isla. Theo and Isla like to play “Puppy” rough and had a blast. Haley wanted to play ball ALL night long. She was nonstop with setting the ball in our laps and boy did we love it! She was feeling good! This was the first time they’ve seen a furiend since Haley’s diagnoses and they loved every minute of it!
.
This Monday Haley will have a week off from chemo. The following Monday she will have her follow up ultrasound to check on the cancer and if all checks out she will start to receive chemo every two weeks instead of weekly.
.
Thank you to everyone that has supported us through the challenging last 6 weeks. ❤️😘

Life is one grand adventure 🌲
.
We are hoping to get the clear in two weeks after Haley’s follow up ultrasound to go on more adventures like this. 😊 We have to take it easy because her heart lowers her stamina some, but she wants to get out and play. Praying that we have more adventures to come 🙏🏼❤️

Haley had her chemo yesterday and all went well. She had a shot of Cerenia to help with any nausea that may be present the post 24 hours. She has a week off from chemo next week (yay!) and then an ultrasound the following week to check on the cancer. The plan from then forward is chemo every other week for 4 months (she’s been getting it once a week so far). She will also have a follow up on her heart in 8 weeks. We are praying she has beaten this cancer and that her heart will continue to stay strong ❤️ Thank you for all your continued support and prayers. They have warmed our hearts and helped us push through the hard times ❤️

Monday struggles 😴
.
Haley has her chemo this morning and her follow up ultrasound is actually two weeks from now. Typically they do this at week six and this is six weeks from her diagnosis. However, since we had a setback with her heart condition week six of chemo is in two weeks. At every chemo appointment they check her CBC/chemistry and complete a physical exam. She has a great appetite and lots of energy today 😊
