WOW! Happy 3 Miss Mona! Love looking at your beautiful self! I definitely think a 3 year Ampuversary deserves a HUGE celebration full of tuna & sardines & well whatever else Miss Mona has a hankering for. That being said I’m sure Kerren has planned an extraordinary party for her girl. Well done to both Mona and Kerren! Let the pawrty commence!

Holly, how sweet of you to take out an ad for Miss Mona. You are very creative. Mona is delighted and so am I.
She’ll have a little party this weekend and she’s deciding on the menu and her outfit. Eli is staying out her way since she’s getting quite fussy with her grooming which entails me brushing her 3 times a day, her cleaning herself (lots of furballs coming up) plus multiple trips to the scratching box to do her “nails”.
Eli is in charge of the music. Photos and hopefully a video to come…
Thanks for the tributes to Mona everyone!!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

I love Mona pics, she always looks so regal! And she always looks like she’s supposed to be on three.
I am so happy for you guys! 3 years!! Can’t wait for the party pics!!
And Holly: nice!
To the next 3!
