Roxy’s Journey

Roxy’s Journey

We are lucky to have such dedicated people caring for animals and sharing their journeys, trials and tribulations. This is Vet Nurse Bec and Roxy’s love story.

Roxy is an 11 year old Shihtzu cross. She’s a happy, cheeky girl who likes to greet anyone and everyone with a toy in her mouth and a wiggle of her bottom. She loves meeting new people and exploring new places. Roxy’s favourite things include her walkies along the beach, chicken, cheese and her toys. Most recently Roxy has taken to the water on a stand up paddle board and she loves it.

Roxy was born in Portsmouth, England and lived their for 4 years before I brought her back to Perth with me. She has been to Buckingham Palace, rode the London Underground and crossed the infamous Abbey Road Crossing. As I work as a vet nurse, Roxy comes into work and loves to greet all our Clients as well as checking on patients recovering from surgery.

Roxy was diagnosed with cancer in May 2015. She has since had 5 surgeries (her most recent in Feb 2018) where a total of 8 lumps were removed from her body. Four of these lumps were diagnosed as Mast Cell Tumors. Roxy undergoes 6 monthly ultrasounds and fortunately to date the cancer had not spread internally. The oncologist has advised that it’s not a matter of “if” but “when” the cancers return :-(.  In addition to this Roxy has recently been diagnosed with an Osteochondroma in her spine at the base of her neck. This is a non malignant cancerous growth that is slowly crushing her discs and pressing on her spinal cord. Regular Acupuncture and canine rehabilitation sessions are helping to slow the progression of this disease.

Roxy is my world, she is such a loyal and caring dog and we have been through so much together in the past 11 years. Roxy and I are therefore living each day to the fullest as we never know when her cancer may return xx.

I've been busy during my convalescence and bring GREAT news!

So - for those non competitive paddlers who would like to participate in the SUP Leg of the Avon Decent Event, Paddle WA will arrange an early launch start before the elite SUP paddlers run us down. They'll over take us anyway but at least we can feel part of the action and bring more SUP's to the event!

I'm excited about this so please get on your boards guys and enjoy the challenge and spirit of the event!

We need to know who is in and if you need a suitable board. We can help with this so get in touch via messenger and we can get you sorted. My own journey has been challenging but I am doing this no matter what so YOU CAN TOO!!
