Long days…

Hi everyone, Mojo here…

It’s been a long couple of weeks. The days seemingly last forever now, which stands in contrast to the days before Sebastian went to the Bridge. Those days flew by way too fast.

Some of the neighbors noticed it has been really quiet when they walk by now. I hear them, but without my best big brother, it’s not the same. I guess my big brother was my source of courage to feel confident to guard the yard. Even when he was sick and stayed inside, I could do it by myself, because I knew he was right there just in case. But now…

My pawrents said something about getting me another friend to help Sebastian watch over me during the day. You know, it might be nice to have a new friend.  So we’ll see if that happens. Paws crossed???

Well, I better get going for now, but just wanted to let everyone know that we are still here and support all the tripawds. My dad and I see so many inspiring blogs on here. Keep up the good work everyone!

Ruff, Ruff!!

 

PS – Just wanted to say a special thank you to Sally and Jackie – Sally always made my big brother smile and laugh with her comments and he said Jackie was always super supportive, even when things weren’t going well. You guys are always appreciated – you both are pawesome!

Tag! I’m it!

Hi everybody, it’s Mojo.

It’s been a week since Sebastian went to the Rainbow Bridge – it’s been a ruff week, but there are moments where I think he’s been back a few times even though I can’t see him. The other day I went for a walk around Sebastian’s favorite pond. We couldn’t go very often when he got sick, but we went the last day he was with us and he loved it so much.

Anyway, so I saw something move across the park and I took off – I chased a squirrel to a tree – but when I stopped and looked up, I couldn’t believe what I saw (if you look closely, there were 5 squirrels in one tree!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sebastian and I would have gone crazy with that many squirrels in one tree – I wished he was there with me – After my dad told me I did a good job, we started walking and I look to my right and what do I see?

My dad says that rainbows form over most waterfalls, but in that moment, I felt that 5 squirrels were no accident – the squirrels and now the rainbow were signs from Sebastian.  We’ve been to the pond several times now and we see the rainbow every time. 🙂

And then the other day this happened – I know you’ve all seen the video where Sebastian would sneak up from behind me and we would play tag, so when I thought I was all alone in the backyard, I was getting ready to come inside and I swore someone came up from behind me (watch as I suddenly turn around). I knew it was Sebastian “tagging me”.  He got me.

Well, I better get going for now.

Until then, miss you Sebastian! And you’re it!

My best friend

Ruff, ruff! This is Mojo. My brother Sebastian gave me his account information and told me I could stay in touch with everyone. He said you guys were good people and he told me that I was an honorary Tripawd.

I have to admit, I miss him already. He told me he was going to the Rainbow Bridge and get everything set up and that he’ll be waiting for all of us, but he needed me to stay with the family.

My pawrents are doing a good job of keeping me busy, but I have snuck into the front room several times and looked out the window, hoping against hope he would come running up the driveway, but I know.

But I also know he’s my best friend. Not was. Is.  Sebastian is the best big brother anyone could ever have. My dad helped me create this video tribute to Sebastian.

I’ll check in from time to time and help support all the tripawds of the world. Sebastian may not have had a long time, but he lived life to the max and I hope this video can be an inspiration to others.

My favorite things

We got some bad news the other day – the vet says I have lung mets now. There are about 6-8 of them that they can see. They said something about nearing the end of time and that we need to start making preparations for my trip to the Rainbow Bridge.

Honestly, I’m not sure what all that means, I just want to let everyone know that I am still living in the moment and having fun with my pawrents and my favorite things…

For example, here I am playing with my ball. I am perfectly content playing with my ball. I used to love to fetch it, and I occasionally still want to chase after it, but I have found that I enjoy just hanging out and playing with my ball in one spot.

I’m not sure how many more posts I will be able to do, but in case I have to leave for the Rainbow Bridge before my next post, just know I really appreciate all of you joining me on my journey and I’ll wait patiently on the other side of the Bridge so we can play together with some of my favorite things again.

Knock on wood diet

Hey everyone,

Last week was a little ruff, this week has been better. My antibiotic seems to be working – I’m not oozing anymore and I have lots of energy! I want to go outside and play, but my pawrents are taking it easy with me after this last infection.

I know everyone is different, but I thought I would just share what my pawrents give to me as part of my new regime.

Approximately 5:00am – Cell Salt
15 minutes later – Dr. Loops remedy of the day (I alternate between 3 different remedies)
15-30 minutes later – breakfast (Darwin’s raw food)
Vitamin C and Vitamin E supplement (this is for the artemisinin program)

Approximately 12:30 pm – dinner (2 cans of Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain – this is a link to the review on dogfoodadvisor.com)
Curcumin, Salmon Oil and Transfer Factor Canine Complete Formula mixed in
Vitamin C and Vitamin E supplement (this is for the artemisinin program)

Approximately 5:00pm – Cell Salt
15 minutes later – Dr. Loops remedy of the day

Approximately 7:30-8:00pm – Artemisinin (1), Artemix (1), Butyrex (2) and Vitamin D (1) with cottage cheese/ricotta cheese. My pawrents discovered I don’t like taking pills, and when I caught on to their trick of mixing pills with cottage cheese, I started turning my nose at the cottage cheese (so be careful about mixing medicine in a favorite food). So now my pawrent has to gently make sure I take my pills with cottage cheese, but after we are done, he gives me a couple big spoonful of ricotta cheese on a separate paper plate. YUMMY!!!

I know I talk about me alot, but I would like to take a moment and give a shout out to my baby sister Mojo – We’ve been through everything together. We came from the same litter – when our Pawrents couldn’t decide between the two of us, they took us both! We are thankful they did! She is always there with me and for me.  Here are a couple pictures of Mojo being there for me during some of my ruff days.

Mojo was so happy when I first came back home from the amputation – you can see she is smiling!

This is her staying near me during my last infection.

This is nothing new for her – even going way back… this is us when we first came home together (Mojo is cuddled on top of me) – as you can see, she’s always been there, with me and for me.

So knock on wood, we are hopeful this regime will allow me to keep hanging out with my fams and especially my baby sister Mojo.

Alright, time to head out for now, talk to you all soon – ruff, ruff!

Sebastian
