Hi Everyone – So with the help of Jerry (Thank you so much!)  I have finally got my blog set up.  I want to use this to document our Journey with sweet Patchy.

Patch the Pirate or Patchy as we call him is a very sweet, shy 6 year old St. Bernard.  We lost his daddy to bone cancer back in December and were devastated when Patchy was diagnosed in January.  After several weeks of anguish about what to do we finally made the decision to have his leg amputated March 25th.

We are now 11 days into recovery and so far he is recovering nicely.  Though it is hard to see him as he learns to navigate on 3 legs it is so great to see him free of the awful pain of the osteosarcoma.

 I am so grateful for the support on this site and hope that I can be an encourager here as well.

As you can see from the photos attached he is a big snuggly “chuppy”  Will post again soon!

  1. Welcome to the community. Patchy is a very handsome boy. I am sorry to hear of his diagnosis and you losing his father to this stupid effing disease. Cancer sucks all around.

    Keep us informed on how Patchy is doing

  2. SUMMER!! Great job on the vlog AND posting the photos!! I’ve been her for three years and still don’t know how to blog!

    And these pictures….ADORABLE!!!! Patch OWNS CUTENESS!! And talk about a snuggle bear…OMD! LAP CHUBBY INDEED! How was Kevin ever able to get out from under that sofa hog?

    I’m sorry about the loss of yiur other pup. I know how deeply that hurts. You’ve got a mighty good Guardian Angel watching over all of you!

    Looks like Patch isn’t missing long walks at all. He clearly enjoys snuggle time and being a couch potato!

    It’s still very early in recovery. It takes about thirty days for dogs to adjust to walking on three legs and work out using new muscles without being sore or strained, etc.

    Keep these precious pictures coming!

    Love to all!

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
