WOW! It’s funny how fast life can change sometimes! Last week my mom told me we were moving to a place called Kirkland in Washington state. I have never been there, but mommy grew up there and says it’s lovely and I will be near a lake, so I’m pretty excited about that. I heard my mommy and daddy talking, and what I can gather is that because mommy isn’t working now (she was in school) and daddy was paying for my treatments and living expenses, things were getting pretty stressful around here. So they decided that the best thing right now would be for me to move to WA with mommy where we wouldn’t have to worry about living expenses and she could focus on school and get done super fast! We will be living with my grammy and grampy out there, and I will also have a dog friend around. I’ve never met her, but her name is Gracie and she is something called a Havanese. I saw a picture of her once in a bee costume, and she looks like no dog I’ve ever seen before!!! My grammy is afraid I will hurt her because I am bigger and she is making all these rules for me. That, I am NOT excited about, but whatever. We are leaving next Sunday and are going on a cross-country road trip which I have never done before, so I am really stoked! I also get to meet my great-gramma (she is my mom’s grandma) when we are in South Dakota. I will miss my brother and my daddy, but now my parents can focus on saving up some cash which will make them less stressed and happier, which will then make ME happier! My mom called a bunch of places out in WA yesterday and found me an Oncologist close by and she said she wants to take me to something called a holistic vet. She called them and they have experience in working with cancer patients, so it seems like a good move! They do traditional medicine as well, so if the herbs don’t work out, I can always try something else. This will be a busy week while we get ready to move, but I am excited for my new adventure!!

    Hey Jackers! That sounds really exciting! Hope you make lots of new friends there, and that the holistic vet gives you herbs that aren’t too awful!
    Keep us informed and send photos of your new home!

    Oooh, Kirkland is so pretty! You are going to LOVE it there, it’s so dog friendly and green and wow, a very nice place to be. You know we have LOTS of Tripawds there, and TazzieDog isn’t too far from there either! OMG you have to get a pawty together when things settle down a bit. Wooo hooo!!!!!

    Hey Jackers! I didn’t realize until now that you moved away from Michigan. My Mom said last summer some Michigan people (your Mom included) were trying to get a Tripawd reunion together in Michigan. Now you are not IN Michigan anymore. Bummer! My Mom says that Washington is very beautiful, so you are one lucky dog. My Mom understands how stressful the money thing can get, she is not working either and going back to school too. Please let us know when you will be back in Michigan so we can set up a Tripawty.
