Hi everyone! I had Roxy out in the backyard for a bit today and decided to pull out my iPhone and record some of it. I thought maybe those of you who have known us on here for a couple years might like to see how Roxy’s doing for yourselves, and maybe some of the newer members might take comfort from watching the video. A short recap, Roxy had her amputation on March 2, 2010 after a diagnosis of Grade III Mast Cell Tumor on her front left knee. She came to us as a stray so we don’t know her exact age, but the best guess is about 8 now. Roxy is a very vibrant “senior” boxer even though she has arthritis issues, sometimes causing her not to use her back right leg fully. But as you will see in the video she still very much enjoys life. Hopefully she’ll keep this up for a long time still to come. I thought I’d repost a video we shot 5 months after her amputation so you can compare the changes over about 19 months. She might be a little bit slower, but other than that the only change you’ll see is her face is much grayer. 🙂

A disclaimer here, I wasn’t thinking about posting this video when I shot it so the “narration” is lacking in talent and entertainment. Also it was just me and a phone so it isn’t the best quality. But it serves it purpose, you can still see my beautiful girl.  Oh!  I almost forgot to say even though it looks like she is running away at the end of the new video, rest assured, she did not.  She was just going on a little hop through the back yard.  😉

    Awww Leslie, she looks great! Roxy girl- I love to read about MCT’S survivors. 8 is senior for Boxers? Quad pug Tani is coming up on 12 (yikes!) and is fighting the arthritis battle. What happens with her back leg? Sometimes Tani’s left back leg doesn’t work- it scares me, but so far it is a brief time then it works again. And don’t worry about the narration, I had to mute the video. It sent quad pug Obie into a barking tizzy!
