Ty's new buddy Bristol the football tee fetchin dog

We had a great time at the game today!!  It was SOOO nice to get out of the house and do something fun! We experienced today another example of how great people in our community are.  Ty was invited to be Bristol's special guest at the ISU game.  Who is Bristol you ask??  Only the coolest dog ever...
Sometimes Ty doesn't know what to do with all of the attention he gets...but I think he is catching on that it is pretty fun

Playing catch with the mascot Benny the Bengal...I think Bristol wants to join the fun
ISU's kicker came to meet him

And one of the coaches brought him a bunch of very cool gear..helmet, signed football and jerseys, and some cool shorts

We went early to the game to help Bristol warm up
Getting all ready to fetch the tee...how cool is this dog!!

Ty would run out and place the tee for Bristol
Then they would say 'get the tee' and let go and he would take off like lightning

Bristol also loves to play with footballs, Ty would toss it to him and he would bunt it right back with his nose
Ty stood at the entrance and watched the players go by
And during the game Ty got to sit on the floor and help send Bristol to get the tee

Running along the sideline after helping Bristol

And waiting for Bristol's next turn while we watch the game

Benny the Bengal gave him a ride on the scooter all over the field between quarters.  Ty (and the rest of us) had such a good time!!  Getting chemo, pills, back pokes, and pokies totally stink...but Ty might tell you that stuff like tonight might just make up for all the junk he has to go through!! Thank you Bristol for being such a cool dog!!  And Thank you for inviting Ty to be your special guest!! 

 By the way, he is feeling great right now!  He goes for his next dose of chemo the day after Thanksgiving.  He gets a higher dose of the methotrexate and then some more vincristine.  The vincristine makes his feet 'crunkily'...I think it makes them feel a little like they are asleep so he complains about that sometimes, but other than that he is doing good so we'll see what his next dose does.  Happy Thanksgiving!!  We can't even begin to list all of the things we are thankful for but our hearts are full to bursting as we think of them and as we think of all of you.  Thank You!!
