Oh Sally, im so sorry to read this! Seniors are such a special bunch and you are such a special mama for giving Nellie and Bob the loving home they always dreamed of.  I'm sure there watching over you and sharing loving memories with happy hannah. 

Biggest hugs to you ❤❤❤

My sweet soulmate Roane was diagnosed with osteo in June of 2019. Had a rear leg amp on July 2nd & crossed the rainbow bridge to be with her sister Gypsy on the first day of Autumn Sept 23 2019.

Sally - I am so very sorry about Nellie.  I know how much you love all of your babies and what a fantastic life they have with you as their mama.  Sending lots of love from Griffin and me! sp_hearticon2sp_hearticon2 Stacy

Griffin lived an amazing life for 11 years! Diagnosed with osteosarcoma on March 17, 2020, Griffin's right forelimb was amputated on April 2, 2020. Ten days later he was running and playing fetch! Lung metastasis discovered in July 2020 did not slow down Griffin and he lived joyfully for the next 7 months, passing peacefully at home on February 11, 2021.

Ohhhhhhh my gosh this is never easy is it? I can feel the love you gave her, the amazing, long happy life she had thanks to you. It's the life every creature deserves. Still my heart is heavy knowing she got those angel wings, and I just want to say how sorry I am Sally.

You are such an amazing advocate and parent to all your fur kids. I can't think of a better life for an animal to have than at Camp Sally. 

Sending lots of sp_hearticon2 to you, the pack, and keeping an eye in the sky for a beautiful angel named Nellie.

Wow so many Angels on this forum!  Nancy what a priceless gift you gave to Sally!  Had tears watching it!  Sally wrapping you in hugs!  Nellie was a special soul!  Loved seeing and loving on her again last May ❤️.  I kind of knew then it would probably be my last chance to feed her cookies 😪. But she and Bob were so lucky to find you. Your heart must be close to being as big as it can get!  Love you lady!! ❤️❤️❤️
