Bravo! This is really great news, I'm so happy to read this update.

Please don't feel badly about keeping her weight down. You are doing the absolute best thing you can for her. We often hear that our Wyatt Ray is "too thin" because you can see a faint outline of his ribs. He isn't. He is perfect. And he runs, romps and has never had any spinal or joint issues (knock wood) we think because we've been so obsessed with keeping him thin. It is a gift we can give our three-legged heroes so they never have to suffer unnecessarily. You are doing GREAT.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

What great news!  And good job getting her weight down.  Sometimes that can be a real challenge.

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.
