Today we checked off another item on Oreo’s Bucket List – trying a Puppuccino!
I’m not sure the correct way to spell it, but regardless, Oreo LOVED his new treat – I think it may be his new favorite! He was so excited to go for a car ride, which is really amazing to me since more often than not, car rides have been resulting in a vet visit for him. He jumped right in the car, happily looking out the window and wagging his tail every time we saw a dog who was out for a walk.
From the second we pulled in the parking lot, Oreo was in his prime. He saw several people walking in to the building, all who stopped to talk to him. When I first found Oreo, he was TERRIFIED of anyone new, aside from children. He quickly learned to like women, but his fear of men persisted. Over the past year or so, he has seemingly gotten over that fear as well. He was excitingly wagging his tail and trying to give kisses to everyone who stopped by the car to say hi to him.
I mean really…what self-respecting dog wouldn’t want one of these?!
For those who haven’t yet had the honor of trying one yet, a Puppuccino is a very small cup filled with whipped cream.
It did take a bit of work for Oreo to get all of the whipped cream out of the cup…but he was up for the challenge!
Today was apparently Take Your Dog to Starbucks day!! Oreo wasn’t the only little guy enjoying a Puppuccino on this beautiful New Year Day.
2017 is off to a good start for Oreo. He has a lot of challenges ahead of him, though. Oreo has his first Chemo treatment on Tuesday. I’m a little bit worried about it – the chemo he’s getting has a 25% chance of causing kidney failure. However, without chemo, he has a 100% chance of dying from this. So I’ll take my chances with it, and just monitor him as close as I possibly can to catch any possible side effects the second they happen. I will do anything and everything I can to help him beat this. His chances aren’t the greatest – nasal tumors have a generally poor prognosis, especially after they’ve spread to the lymph nodes. But I will not stop fighting for him, ever. He has come back from everything thrown his way, and I am determined to give him every chance possible.
Lucky for Oreo, today we discovered a delicious treat to reward him after his chemo treatments <3
