Yesterday was very hard. hard because i kept my hopes and positivity going till the last moment. and the word i did not wanted to hear was spoken “osteosarcoma” that moment i felt this awful pain in my chest.
when i heard 4 to 6 months it was just to much. my heart have been sore for weeks now and it gets to be even more hurt but it gets to do it in silence so that my sweet boy doesn’t get a bad vibe from me.
now all i get to do is appreciate more every moment i get with kiko. stop counting time and just live the moment as it comes till the end.
i noticed that he is in a better mood when i treat him as i did before he was diagnosed. so i will have to swallow all that sorrow put it away and be happy that i still have him with me.
i decided not to go ahead and do chemo. i was told that would not cure him. he is an old dog and he is depressed at times so i didn’t want to make him feel more sick.
i hope i made the right decision.
we have big plans and an epic adventure planned for this big boy. i hope to capture many more of that beautiful smile he wears, will be a pity not to.
It’s been a week since i’ve had kiko home after his amputation and about a month since i was told he had cancer.
we have had good and bad days. memorable moments and sad ones as well.
its odd how you go on living normal and in just a blink of an eye suddenly every second of every moment spend with that ball of fur becomes even more important.
moments i took for granted before i’m finding myself trying to keep so present. to scared to forget that one second i’ve spend with him.
in just a month i’ve learned to live and enjoy things the way my pup been doing all his life. moments that i thought were small now are instants i find important.
it’s unbelievably crazy how an event in life can teach you so much and change the way you look at life it self.
my heart is very sore, it’s hard not to be. no matter if you try to hide it so that your pup doesn’t sense that vibe. the pain is there, it’s constant, it’s normal. you see that one being you love more than anything suffer of course it hurts.
if you are going through something similar. hug that furry, wet nose, wagging tail, uniquely beautiful being as much as you can. and if you are not it doesn’t matter do it anyways.
so do yourself a favor and give your dog, your cat or whatever amazing pet you have a big hug right now.

i been documenting kiko’s first few days as a new member of the tripawd community.
but the best highlights of my videos is my adorable duo watson and kiko together.
i have read comments like “she should put the dog down” and that is a big no. he deserves a fighting chance. it’s being really h*****n me seeing him like that. but i’m sure the good times will over power the bad.
there is also a soon trip to be planned for kiko. we will make sure that this guy have the best of time, we might not know how much time he has left but we will make every second count.
thank you for all the support the instagram community have given us, love you all!
song: light by sleeping at last
With four or three legs to me you look complete and perfect. what you think are imperfections to me are the things that makes you unique.
turns out that now you are even more special. keep fighting my little warrior!
update: kiko is doing so much better this morning. still getting use to having only three legs now.
he had a few accidents yesterday where he tried to lift his back leg to p*e and lost his balance and fell. this morning that didn’t happened, he learned his lesson.
he is still in a bit of pain and last night was tough. but i’m so proud of how strong he is being.
i checked my dms this morning and i noticed that many of you missed our stories and post about kiko.
well he was diagnosed with cancer and that is the reason why he unfortunately lost his rights front leg. trav and i have all our focus on this sweet boy and we are doing everything we can to fight this along side kiko.
thank you all for the encouraging messages being send from all over the world 💛
My big sweetie, we call him that because he is the biggest and is the sweetest fluff in the house.
here is an updated on kiko’s condition. it was confirmed that what he has is cancer. however because the sample taken was to small they couldn’t determine what type and they couldn’t tell me how much time we might have with him.
kiko have been very uncomfortable with his leg and it’s because the bone is now very fragile. there are risks of the bone getting fractured even if kiko is just walking. the bone is being eaten by this horrible disease.
i had to make the decision to go ahead and amputate his leg, which the surgery is scheduled for this upcoming thursday may 30th. after that the limb will be send to a specialist with the hopes that we will get a more accurate diagnosis as to what type of cancer he has and know what the next steps will be.
kiko have been in high spirits, have been smiling and just being himself. but that’s kiko he doesn’t really show he is in pain unless i’m giving him a bath, that’s really the only time i see pain in his eyes 😅
anyways so far i’m very confident that we will get through this tough time together and we will have kiko with us for more years. i’ll do everything i can to make it better for him and make sure he is very well looked after because he deserves all the attention and care he is receiving.
The way he apologizes is so sweet. can’t stay mad at that big fluff for to long.
as you may know kiko have been having some health issues and this morning he wasn’t eating his food. so little naughty watson took advantage of that. he apologized to his brother so it’s all good now 😂

Adventure awaits, ouch-mouse and big fluff ready to explore...
i added a bts clip. it just shows how it usually goes down when i stop and take shots of these two. london is a challenge at times, she doesn’t like to be held that much, she enjoys to be free more.
when she’s on the ground i keep my eye on her the whole time. she is not really a runner so she stays or follows us. i trust her to behave so there is a mutual understanding between her and i.
