Rumpy continues to amaze me with his recovery.
Don’t get me wrong, he’s not well. Right now he’s lying at my feet panting. His breathing is no longer labored, but it’s still heavy.
Last week I was begging him to eat anything. This morning he ate his regular dry food mixed with canned!
Last week we walked into the yard for him to potty and he’d want to immediately come back in. This morning he drug me around the yard.
We’re headed to the vet Monday morning for a follow-up. I guess another set of X-rays to check on that lymph node. And there’s still that tumor on his hind leg to think about, yet with the recovery he’s making, could he recover from these as well?
Who knows. But today, he’s showing marked improvement. Today I am hopeful.

Dear Jenny, I am glad to hear this, you are in my thoughts. I do wish, hope and pray Rumpy to get well soon. Love you all so much, Love, nia
Thanks. I was expecting the worst, but once again Rumpy surprises me.
A big big big big hug your way and more healing thoughts! Mouah!
Rumpy I hope with such good news you can even chase that tumor away… it’s great that you ate 3 cans of food and I hope hope hope for more good news… all paws and fingers and even my tail is crossed for you dear cookie saurus…
He ate cookies too. I’m now having to be careful to not overdo it. I want him to eat but not make himself sick from eating.
Yay for today 😻
I know! It’s amazing!
I’m glad to hear that. I hope Rumpy continues to improve.
Thanks. I am thrilled.
3 cans of food! Wow! *hugs*
I know! I first gave him the chicken and rice and he didn’t really want it. So I opened a can of food and he licked the bowl clean. Gave him a second and he cleaned that one too, so I gave him a third and he ate most of that one.
Dakota sends Woo woo woo your way as well.
Glad to know about such good news, and Bongo and I are hoping for Rumpy ‘s going on in the direction of getting better an better.
I am hopeful, and I really wasn’t before, so I guess that’s something.
Glad to know you’re feeling better sweet Rumpy! We’re crossing our paws and saying prayers you’ll be back to yourself in no time at all.
Molly and my Mom
I know!!!! Thanks.
Now that is great news to hear. Rumpy is one tough fella and we are keeping all fingers and paws crossed that he recovers from the rest too!Super Pup Rumpy! xxx Rachel and Speedy
That’s great news! Sometimes a series of treatments can slow a condition down or put it into remission for a period of time, sometimes months or even years. I hope that’s the case. In any case, Rumpy’s feeling good and that makes you both happy, which can only contribute to the wellness of both of you.
Oh that’s great news. Fingers and paws crossed this end he stays perky with good quality. That’s such a sweet video and he looks really good licking his chops. My Tazzie had similar symptoms like you’re describing with some modifications in presentation (she had orbital cancer among other things). This started when she was 12+. She lived to be 15+ with good quality. Rumpy has a lot of love and good thoughts coming his way but he has you and the other fur babies taking great care of him. Again holding out good healing thoughts and happy for the relief of this good news.
That’s wonderful news! Rumpy looks great in the photo. Best wishes that he will continue to improve.
Enjoy and love him wholeheartedly today, Jen. No one has tomorrow. 😉 xoM
Yay for Rumpy! He is getting all better. Good boy. Keep eating for Mommy. Love you! Granma.
So glad there’s been some improvement in Rumpy’s health – may it continue! ❤
Very encouraging news! Keep on keeping on, Rumpy!
Good to hear you’re feeling better, Rumpy. Bob and I are keeping you lifted up!
He is hungry, that is a good sign.
Wishing you all the best, many lovely days together.
I know only too well what a roller coaster ride it can be when you have a senior dog with health issues. Dogs certainly can amaze us with how strong they can be and how hard they will fight. Enjoy the up times as much as you can, and we will hope for you and Rumpy that they continue!
Great news, though obviously still a long way to go. Hugs to you all.
We’re glad Rumpy is doing better. We continue to purr for him.
We love you Jen and Rumpy! And all the other members of your furry family. RainbowCats continue to send love and loud healing, feel better purrs. And since there are 13 of us now (OMC, MEOW!!), that’s a lot of good vibes into the Universe. OurGirl’s heart is filled with gladness. Today’s post has made her whole week. xxx ooo and ^^^ <those are tender nibbles
Thank you very much for this post, Jen. I’m hopeful, too I understand Rumpy has not recovered yet though……Glad to hear that he ate his food and seemed to enjoyed his walk. I really hope that he keeps to continue being better. We’ve been praying for him. We love Rumpy. 🐶❤
Sending purrs! It’s so sweet to see Rumpy with his fursib!
Rumpy is as good with his cats as I am with mine! Enjoy the weekend together.
Thanks Clowie! He does love his June Buggie.
Keebler, Linus, Otis, Oregano and Paprika are all sending best wishes.
Never give up!!
I’ve been so busy, I didn’t even know Rumpy was sick. Tell him I’m glad he’s feeling a bit better, and apologize to him for me. Tell him I’m working hard to help RESIST Trump. I’m sure he’ll understand.
my kindred spirit cat died the day I gave him permission? could not believe it…I truly believe they know we need them, and do not wish to abandon US? he died when I vacated the room…but I believe rumpy will rebound…my rumpy look-alike canine was diabetic and put up with my ham-handed inoculations…two per day for two full years…and I have just completed administering 13 pills per day for two weeks to my black lab/rottie mix to cure a sore spot on her hind leg…I am exhausted…she is healed…I think? my empathetic thoughts are there with you both…
Sending some good energy Rumps way from Jamima and Hellonwheels. 😍😍
Yeah. Keep it up.
Glad he is feeling somewhat better. Healing is done in baby steps.
Always glad for good news like this. Thank you for sharing it. Continued POTP thoughts your way.
