Elgin’s going 100mph

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!       One week post-chemo, stitches out… Elgin handled his first chemo treatment very well.  He was a little lethargic and had little to no appetite for a day, but otherwise he was fine.  He continues to heal and make his way back to how he was […]
