Tad - Totally Awesome Dog

I received an email today from the producer at KHOU Channel 11 News. She said that someone sent her the link to this blog, and she wants to do a story on it. She said that she was hoping to do it by the weekend. I have no idea who sent that in, but...wow. I am still sitting here smiling...jumping up and down...and in disbelief.

I was also told by a friend that she sent the story to The Ellen Degeneres show...and another friend is trying to get Cheez-Whiz to donate some cheese to the poor boy. You guys are simply amazing...simply amazing.

I never asked for any of this, and to have you guys stepping out and doing these things for Tad and I...I am just so thankful. There aren't any words for how I am feeling right now...there really aren't.

...this is all just so...unbelievable. I never asked for any of this...never once did I think that Tad's story would be known worldwide. I never thought it would turn into this...something so amazing and inspiring.

Charles and I talked about names, Dr. Holliday and I talked about names...the receptionist and I...all day we struggled to find something. So, we're sticking with Tad. I know, I know...some of you hate it. But, it's just...'him'. We all decided that we liked it, and it really fit his personality. It just fits him...it's just like...he's Tad. He IS a Totally Awesome Dog.

So, to the real update...

His wounds and skin are looking amazing! Tomorrow, we're able to start his Demodex Treatment, and so hopefully that will do wonders for him, too. He had another weigh-in today, and he's lost a pound. I will blame that on the amount of...erm, poops he's left outside. He is finally eliminating normally, so that's great!

Just looking at his pictures from Saturday until now...I am amazed and the difference already! He is such a strong, strong boy...a real fighter.

There is no reason not to watch this video...it is totally and 100% happy. It is amazing...truly amazing how far he's come in such a short time.

  1. Wow he really looks better!! He walks better than in the last video :)
    I loooove how he wags his tail and how he trusts you with the cares you're giving. Tonight I cried again watching him, but with joy this time.
    I like his name. Totally Awesome Dog indeed!

  3. I've shared your blog link with a number of my friends -- who are all devastated by what Tad has gone through -- and they all asked if you had a Facebook page with a donation link.

    I think it may be time for Tad to be social networking! :)

  5. WOW, he has come so far in such a short time! You deserve a medal for turning your car back around to go get him. I am going to post the blog link on my Facebook page and hopefully you'll get more donations to continue helping Tad. I think his name fits him perfectly! You are both amazing!

  7. Hi. My AIM is moonshade flower. I'm the one who welcomed you to Japan. I know I sent in a heads up to KHOU but I bet a lot of other people did, too. I really hope that this gets him exposed. I'm so happy they contacted you. I'm going to give them a call this morning (night, for me) to thank them.
