Oh my, Marla! That has to be the most truly unique method ever! Thanks so much for sharing it.

Kathi and the Turbotail April Angel…and the Labradork

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

PS….I typed DAISY’s name once by “mistake” and fixed it. But nah, not a mistake…just Daisy saying “hi”! πŸ™‚

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

He started peeing like that when he was wanting to hike his left leg.Β  Since there’s no leg on the right side he just started lifting his whole body up.Β  People always get a kick out of watching him do this at dog parks and trails. The vet didn’t know he did that and one time she had him outside to get a urine sample.Β  She came back in and said she couldn’t get it because he was “all over the place”.laughing

OMG … that is the best thing ever!!!Β 

Shelby Lynne; Jack Russell/Shiba Inu mix. Proud member of the April Angels of 2014.

October 15, 2000 to April 8, 2014

OurΒ 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

That is AWESOME!Β 

I thought it was hard to get a urine sample from Tripug Maggie, also a rear amp.Β  When she squatted there was almost no space under her back end to collect a sample…but at least she was stationary and aiming at the ground!

Tri-pug Maggie survived a 4.5 year mast cell cancer battle only to be lost to oral melanoma.
