The Tail of Two Sugar Nubs

3 year old Mastiff beats cancer

The Tail of Two Sugar Nubs

Hello Tripawds!

Well hello there fellow Tripawds! My name is Sugar and I live in Farmersville, TX with my Mommy, Daddy, brother Tike, and sister, Little Girl. I’m a 3 year old beautiful Boerboel (aka South African Mastiff) and the youngest among my four legged siblings. I enjoy long, relaxing conversations with my Mommy outside sitting under the shade tree. Mommy even bought me my own special outdoor blanket for us to relax on! If you’re interested I can tell you where you can get one yourself. LIFE CHANGER. I also enjoy, barking at the neighbors horses with my siblings, my human neighbor named Pam (she’s mine, I don’t share), vanilla Oreo’s, my monthly Bark Box, chewing on blankets to put me to sleep, and just being with my amazing family.  Oh yea, did I mention I’m beautiful and “Mommy’s everything?” I’m told this by my Mommy about a million times a day, maybe more, I was never that good at math. What I do know is my parents love me more than anything and were completely heartbroken when a mass on my left hind leg came back positive for cancer. I was only sad because Mommy was crying. Just wanted her to feel better so I could continue barking at those stupid horses, especially the mini horse. Seriously, what is that thing?! Too small to be a horse and it’s about my size, but get this……IT’S NOT A DOG!!! I’m so confused. Sorry, I let that damned mini thing get me side tracked. Anyhow, about that evil cancer. So, I was diagnosed with a sarcoma cancer, can’t recall the actual type (give me a break, it’s a big word for a 3 year old) but my parents were told it was a “friendly cancer” and unlikely to spread beyond my leg. Yay! Good news! Mommy can stop crying and I can get back to business. My siblings are doing a sub par job in the horse barking department in my absence. Well, all didn’t go according to my master plan. I had surgery in May to remove the mass. I had the CUTEST casts ever! The purple one was my favorite because, duh, I’m a beautiful princess, but Mommy kindly asked that I get a Texas Rangers cast. She loves her Texas Rangers baseball and I’ll do anything for my Mommy! Unfortunately, the mass grew back within 3 weeks. I still didn’t get all the fuse. I felt and looked great. Sure I was carrying a little extra weight around the middle but who isn’t? Plus, by my calculations I still had a little time to trim down for bikini season. Wait….I forgot, I’m bad at math and I live in Texas. Oh well, I have a booty and face to die for. We’ll go with that. So my parents decided, since my cancer was considered “friendly” that we would try some homeopathic medicines and diet changes. I was about a week in, still feeling great, then I got an infection and developed a pretty high fever. Daddy took me to the emergency room while Mommy cried at home. I wasn’t feeling my best but was still super stoked about a truck ride with Daddy. After a day long vet stay where I received blood and fluids I was ready to come home. My parents informed me shortly after that this bum leg has got to go. I was a little nervous until Mommy said I would be even more beautiful as a Tripawd. More beautiful than before??? Didn’t know that was possible….SIGN ME UP! So I gained my ever so exclusive Tripawd status on June 20, 2017. All I have to say about that leg is BYE FELICIA!!!! Mommy was right!! I am more beautiful! And guess what?! I even trimmed down just in time for bikini season. Can’t wait to show that mini horse thing my new hot body…oh wait, um, I mean bark at him….. Overall I’m doing AMAZING! The hardest thing was figuring out how to adopt a new potty position. I eventually got it, may not be pretty but you shouldn’t be watching anyway. A lady needs her space. Today I’m back to being a happy, healthy, loving, 3 year old who has a booty that just won’t quit! I even run and roughhouse with my siblings. Mommy has her “Everything” back and I couldn’t be happier! Back to my wonderful life with my amazing family! Btw….continue reading my blog. Mommy likes to post funny pictures of me. I tend to do some pretty funny things and have issues with scary objects….like a space heater. That scary monster had me locked in a closet for what seemed like an eternity. Bye for now! Got important business to handle. – Love, Sugar

    Hello! From one tripawd to another, you are beautiful! I have mini horses and I agree, they aren’t quite right… I leave the barking to my crazy little brother, though! Anyway, thanks for sharing your story and welcome to Tripawds! ~Loki and Brittnie

      May I ask how you became a tripawd? Thank you for the sweet comments. One day I will figure out that mini horse. Some days I just look at it and think….WTH?

    Well DIVA is not quite the right word for such a gorgeous one who knows her own worth! Look at you Sugar Bear! You are the epitome of TEXAS and of LOVE. You have certainly had some roller coaster rides, but, for a Texan? That is just par for the course. Please keep us updated on your adventures!
