Hee! Hee! Merry Christmas pupperz! And you too Sally! I hope you are having a relaxing, beautiful celebration.

What a gift! There’s nothing better than seeing the excitement in Cash and Hank’s eyes when they got that first Christmas treat. They shared so nice and didn’t even take your fingers off. WOW!

I’m with Paula, your home is a wintery wonderland, it’s so pretty with all the decorations. I love your pawliday spirit my friend. Just gorgeous smiley10

Cheers and thanks to you for sharing so much joy, love and light with all of us. We are better people because of YOU! xoxo

Hey Sally, 

Been an eternity since I have come to the forums, and what to my wondering eyes should appear, 2 more beautiful rescue pups for Sally, I need to celebrate by grabbing a beer !!!! Sorry, really poor Christmas plagiarism, and I don’t even like beer, lol 😂😂

I think I am in love with Tripawd Cash, and semi-blind Hank, and I know they will have the BEST fur-mom in the world, as well as Merry Myrtle and Frankie showing them the ropes, per se’…. You have a gigantic heart that knows no bounds, love you 💜❤️💜🐾🥰

Bonnie, Angel Polly, princess Pearl, and zany Zuzu ❤️❤️💞🐾

Hi Sally, so happy everyone had a Merry Christmas!  Those pictures are just beautiful!

Cool whip? I never thought if that. Will have to give it a try.

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

Sadly, ever so sadly, I had to release Hank from his earth clothes yesterday.  They no longer served him. Probably spine tumor or disease disc.  His back end gait was a little “weird ” even when I first adopted him.  Long story short, this past month  got ore wobbly, more  drunken and staggering gait, , then such back end weakness he was scooting  but could eventually  get himself up.  With continued strong will and determination  he woild get himself up, until he couldn’t.  Vet said even IF IF IF I had the money for MRIs, surgeries, etc to  confirm tumor or disc, or both,    She would not recommend  it with his heart condition  and she said it would make NO difference…NO difference…  in the outcome. Through his sheer will and lots of  Prednisone and good pain management   we were able to pull off some miracles the past thirty 45 days……until we couldn’t.   His front end would function  but his back half was completely  useless.     His struggle to try and make it work was taking away from his quality.  In spite of it all, he remained happy but was paying a price for that happiness.  

Cash and I were right by his side for the home release.   So he was surrounded by our love in his furever home with his very own person who adored him  and his best dog friend in the whole world.  And Hank  was doing what he loved most….eating!!

I’ll write more later.  Sorry to vent a little, but just so unfair to finally have the best life evvvvr and to have it cut so short.  

This is how Hank and Cash slept every night.

Oh Sally,

I am so so so sorry.  My heart breaks for all of you.  I know he meant a lot to you as short of time he was with you.  He knew he was loved and will be greeted by Hannah and she will show him the ropes up at the Bridge.  I know Sassy, Simba , Bosch and Snickers were there too.  I have tears streaming down my face.  You gave him the greatest life up until he couldn’t be here anymore.  Remember he knows love and we choose tears.  As many times as we can.

Sending you so much love.  See you in a few weeks my friend and I will be able to give you a big hug 

love you lots

I’m so sorry Sally <3

You gave Hank a wonderful home for a while.  He knew love, warmth and a full belly – what more could a boy want?  Ay dog would be lucky to find himself in your care!  

See you soon
