I have been reading up on dog amputation, and he should adapt well to life on three legs- he already is using just three. He also will no longer have pain from the bone cancer so he should be back to his normal self fairly quickly. We have also been preparing Noah for what will be happening to Chili. I had to pull up some video on YouTube of three legged golden retrievers so that he could see that they could walk and run and play, because as soon as I told him that Chili was going to have a leg removed he burst into tears afraid that Chili wouldn't be able to move around. Every day he asks me the same questions making sure that Chili will be able to walk and run.
The Chili Dawg is my special friend. My crying blanket. I hope that our decision was the best decision for him and will not cause him any extra pain.
