Cancer 0, Lily 1:
Just got back from the veterinary hospital for Lily’s final round of treatment, and she was given a clean bill of health and t hey all just gushed about how she was really tough and was doing great. Been a long 18 months, but we did it. And now we nap:
We don’t have any more treatments, I just need to monitor her and in three months go back for some bloodwork.
I was just wondering about this in the middle of the night the other night. So glad to hear it.
Seriously good and welcome news.
???? yay Lily.
So pleased to hear this news.
Well done Lily!
Very happy for Lily, and you, too, Cole.

Couldn’t be happier for you and her and the whole gang of creatures.
Yes! Good news is always welcomed. Thanks for letting us know.
Congratulations to all of you. Not today, Satan.

Congratulations for beating back cancer and may your Lily stay in good health!
Good girl! Happy for you Cole.
? Happy for you!
Oh this is wonderful news and Lily is just as sweet as ever.
YAY Miss beautiful Lily. I remember when you told us she was sick and would not survive. I was in work, in front of my computer in Dublin and I said (I thought to myself) “Oh fuck me, no.” And my work friend said “Helen are you OK?” Only then did I realize I was talking out loud.
@Baud: Hi Boyfriend. So glad you’re back.
Nice bit of news during a shitty week.
Very good news!
Super news. The best news, truly. Happy for you both!
Great news, I’m so glad to hear it. What a relief for both of you.
Congrats to you both! So, this week has been a banner one for everyone.

Fuck cancer. You didn’t get Lily.
I’m tearing up. Happy tears.
Life is good.
She has on such a pretty bow.
This is such great news. Team Lily!

So happy to hear it. For all the crap going on, it’s nice to get some good news!
if there is a BJ pet calendar this year, I nominate, request, Lily be the cover girl.
And Hooray for medical science for making this all possible.
Congrats to Lily, hugs to Lily and John, and a million “grazie milles” to Lily’s care team!
Great News! Yea, Lily! ?
Anytime any being beats cancer is a good day.
I’m so happy for both of you. Lily couldn’t ask for a better human.
So much happiness. I’d say give her extra hugs and treats for us, but you may not have enough hours in the day for that.
Beautiful dog, beautiful news!
Yay Lily! Let’s have a song to celebrate.
Good chemo, wonnerful vets, and a boatload of big headed and big hearted hoomin lovin!

HUGGING ALL THE PETS
Wonderful news!!! Yay Lily!!!
That is wonderful news!
She’s not even being tough. Just being dutiful. You told her to go through chemo so she did. Dogs are amazing.
Cancer 0, Lily 1,000.
Consider cooking something spectacular for those vets, JC.
Lovely Lily! Happy for Lily and you John.
YAY! MAZEL TOV LILY!!!
What fine news for an even finer girl! I’m glad, John.
Adding my joy for you to all the other joyous comments.
Very good news!
To add to our joy at Lily’s clean slate of health, Michelle is now Dr. Obama! She got her doctorate of law since her husband was out of office and the kids away from home.
LILY! Who’s a good girl? Lily is!
O. Felix Culpa
Wonderful news and such a joyous turnaround from when you told us of her diagnosis. Yay you and Lily!
@Dan B: Cite?
ETA: Woohoo, Lily.
Yay Lily! Cancer sucks and I’m so glad she (and you) kicked its ass!
Hugs for Lily, what a special dog.
Beautiful Lily – good girl! ?❤️
Yay Lily! Atta girl!!

Yay, Lily, Yay Cole!!
Pittsburgh is such an advanced city, you’re lucky to be living in the rural Northern Panhandle of WV but still so near a really great city!
OT — we went to see Current War — The Director’s Cut this late afternoon, a great movie. A little choppy as the viewpoint moves back and forth from Westinghouse to Edison to Nicolai Tesla, but then I realized that was intentional to build the tension of that time.
Lots of money at stake, but great cinematography, great sets from the World’s Fair in Chicago and Westinghouse’s factory floor. Rich texture in the film. There were only 6 of us in the house for the showing…
Good to see Lily happy and healthy.
I bawled when she was first diagnosed. And then I bawled when she had her first treatment. And now I’m bawling again at the good news.
Jeez, what a crybaby!
It’s wonderful news and I’m just so happy for Lily and for John.
@Omnes Omnibus: I saw this in a comment on Joe My God. I’ll do thr Google.
Oh Lily ???
I looked forward to hearing about every treatment.
With every treatment, there was a little bit more of hope.
Every new bow?
Damn, that little dog’s absolutely made of steel. So glad to hear Lily is in remission, along with everyone else on the board!
Hurray for Lily!
Best news 0f the week
Wonderful news! Seconding the motion for putting Lily on the BJ calendar cover.
Wonderful news bout Lily. Am a dog lover and owner of a rescue dog so I don’t mind being the 9,990th commenter on this thread.

Thank you to all the bloggers/friends who donated to Lily to make this possible. JG would be lost without her and you! Lily is doing great and her chart /vitals are exceeding all expectations!!
@Ruckus: Thanks Ruckus. That was great.
Great news, Cole! But now that the women in the vets’ office are out of the picture, you’d better be supplying Lilly with frequent new, pretty bows your own darn self!
They’ve done a bunch of these. That’s my fav but all of them are good.
@Ruckus: Oh, I’ll be looking after I finish the Legal Eagle episode on Jurassic Park.
Yay Lily! Yay JC! I remember one post that you did before she was diagnosed where you were talking about her curling up in your armpit and gently snoring. About how lost you’d be without her. So glad she’s still here for you. Well done all!
I know, as usual, I will be ignored but my joy cannot be contained. It never ceases to amaze me that I can care for a little dog in West Virginia, just from pictures and anecdotes posted by a clearly besotted owner. I’m so happy for you both, Lily and Cole.
Best dambed news of the YEAR!!! Way to go, Lily! You showed ‘im who the boss is!
I am so happy for both of you, John.
Happy tears for our sweet girl. John, I was sobbing like a baby when we first got the news about Lily, but you had faith, and now look at where we are today.
I have always felt that being stubborn is an asset as dogs get older or get sick. Lily doesn’t have a stubborn bone in her body, but her love for you is fierce and that got her through. Happy day.
What wonderful news!!!! I’m so happy for you and that sweet girl!!!!!
Glad to see this! Thanks for letting us know.
Brave, sweet baby girl Lily!!
It’s a double joy to hear this news, since Lily is such a sweetheart, and also b/c she’s giving cancer a big old middle finger (middle claw?!) on behalf of the fur kiddos lost to that damnable disease.
Yeah, Lily!! You are so loved, so strong, and are such a good, good doggie!
Way to go Lily!
