3.30.16 - Wallace's Last Birthday


When Wallace was diagnosed with cancer, his family knew he didn’t have much time left.  For his 11th birthday, he was given a cake and a huge box full of presents.  See his reaction – he gets so many stuffies to destroy, he just can’t even!



This comes from the caption on YouTube:

After diagnosis with hemangiosarcoma, Wallace was given 2 weeks to 3 months without chemo. Here Wallace is celebrating his 11th birthday 7 months post diagnosis chemo free! These were all toys mailed to Wallace by people around the country who loved him.

To help us help other dogs in need, Wallace’s book can be purchased here – www.wallacethepitbull.com. This true story, written by Jim Gorant, takes you on Wallace’s journey from unwanted shelter dog to Champion Frisbee Dog! Wallace passed away a year after diagnosis on 8/23/2013. Long Live Wallace the Pit Bull!

  1. “…he just can’t even” Can’t even what? I sometimes read Millennial Speak and I just can’t even…”

  2. This story is wonderful. I recommend purchasing pet insurance for a dog if financially possible. My wife and I had a Cocker Spaniel who also died of cancer, and we learned that cancers are one of the most common causes of dog death.
    The dog and I walked the same morning route for about 10 years, stopping at a doughnut shop for cinnamon doughnut and coffee. Shared doughnut with dog. One day in mid-March, 2007, a lady pulled up at the street corner, said hello, and showed pictures of her deceased Cocker Spaniel. Later found out that she had seen us for almost a year, and finally worked up the courage to wait just down the street from the stop sign and pull up one day to meet us. I proposed to Beverly at the same spot on the first Monday of October, 2007. We married March 21, 2009.
    Our dog diagnosed with a stroke and cancer in June, 2012, Treated by an oncology veterinarian, but we decided in September that the dog needed to take the rainbow pathway to heaven.. Beverly and Chin-Chin are now in heaven; I hope that Ollie the French Bulldog and I will join them in the future.
    Will purchase pet insurance for Ollie.

  3. Made me tear and smile at the same time. My female bulldog was diagnosed late last year with low grade Fibrosarcoma. She had just turned 5 years old, so we opted for aggressive surgies to remove the tumor and all surrounding tissue. We have to take her back in May for a checkup. Praying she is still cancer free. She would love a box of stuffies like this. 🙂
