We love this story from Central Bark Doggy Daycare and Boarding - Portland, Oregon. You go, Artie! You're is an inspiration giving hope to many
The life and times of Artie Jelline:
From 1/7/02 to 4/28/11: Born, made people happy, played ball, traveled the country by RV, founded and became CEO of Central Bark, brought mom and dad together, met my brother Remy, played more ball, lived large.
4/29/11: Diagnosed with stage 5 Lymphoma. Given 3-6 weeks to live without treatment, or 50% chance of making 6-8 months with treatment.
4/30/11: Met with Dr. Kim Freeman, started 6 month chemotherapy protocol with tennis ball in mouth. Never complained.
4/29/13: Suck it cancer! 2 years of remission, still chasin' balls, still making people happy, still living LARGE.
Thank you Kim, for saving our wonderful puppy. You are our hero!
And so begins the third consecutive "Summer of Artie."
