Daddy welcomed Cadence home………

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!  The other night, Steve called the breeder that he got Cadence from.  He wanted to see if she was still breeding American Bulldogs.  The breeder remembered him and Steve told her all about Cadence and her cancer journey.  We found out the Cadence’s mom is […]

Signs from Cadence…..

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!  Cadence gave Steve a Valentine’s day card this year.   In the card Cadence thanked her Daddy for giving her such a good life.  Cadence knew this would probably be her last Valentine’s day card to him, so she made sure it was very special.  In […]

A fighter until the end…..

  On February 20th, at 7:04 pm, we said goodbye to our sweet baby girl.  The decision was gut wrenching but we had to do what was right for Cadence and not for us.  In one days time, she started gasping for air, even while laying in bed.  The coughing stopped due to the Tussigon, […]

The wonder drug….Tussigon

  When Steve came home Sunday, he looked at Cadence and he thought this was it.  Cadence would not stop coughing.  She would be lying still in bed and she coughed.  She would get up to use the potty or drink water, and she coughed.   So Steve made a phone call to the vets office […]

My heart hurts…….

  The last couple of days have been horrible.  The coughing is getting worse and I can now hear a “crackling” sound as Cadence is breathing.  She still breathes through her nose and there is no heavy panting, but I can see her breathing is becoming more labored.  She also continues to cough up blood, […]

A day of peace and quiet

Mommy and Daddy went to work today, and for the first time in about a week, I had the house to myself.  My mind was racing as to what I was going to do with all this alone time.  We’ve had a lot of people at the house the last week.  My grandparents came to […]

Art project gone wrong……..

  Cadence had another good day yesterday.  The coughing was very minimal and she seemed to have a bit more energy.  She still got in her naps but instead of just sleeping in our room, she followed me around the house.  We sat in the yard for a bit and just enjoyed each other’s company.  […]

To the park we will go……

  I decided that taking Cadence to the park yesterday was probably a good thing.  Cadence seemed pretty worn out because she had slept all morning, so I wasn’t sure if she would be up for the adventure.  I loaded up the car and came back into the house to get her.  I grabbed the […]


  I remember when I was growing up, I couldn’t wait to be older.  Turning the big 18, then 21, seemed so far away.  For some reason time went so slowly back then.  I soon realized that when you get older, time just slips away, and goes so fast.   Now, I wish like anything, time […]
