Duly noted, Sally! It’s supposed to be a lovely day here in Durham today, so I’m thinking Piggy and I will head over to the American Tobacco campus for a lay in the grass this afternoon. I’ll be sure to get some photos of my pretty girl whether we make it to the park or not but here are a couple of photos not posted before (at least I don’t think). One is from the pawty and the other is in our back yard.

Tripawd model, Izzy, shows off her fashion sense and love of pink!

Look at those ears!

Hoppy Happy Birthday Izzy!!! 

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

October 15, 2000 to April 8, 2014

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
