Okay, if Jerry and I can synchronize the photos with this thread........perhaps you can help me figure out why Happy Hannah isn't slimming down!

So, I get myself a bag of popcorn, settle down to read a book in my comfy chair. Get up for thirty seconds.....come back....can't find my popcorn.

First photo will show you what happened to my popcorn......

Second photo, me asking Hannah if she knows what happened to my popcorn!!

She,s trying to ignore me. Note the pieces of popcorn in the slobber in the corners of her mouth!

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!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Look at how happy and joyful that Hannah is after she ate her mom's popcorn!  What a little sneak she is! Was she hunting for kittens in that bag??????

Jill is a 9-year-old tuxedo kitty. She was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in June 2012 on her toe in her right hind leg. Her leg was amputated on 12/12/12 and she completed four rounds of chemo (2 of Carbo, 2 of Doxy) in April 2013.

Ha! Michelle she wasn't worried about hiding that bag cuz she KNOWS.....truly KNOWS I don't fuss at her for anything....I rarely said "NO" to anything she did before the amputation......so she knows now the word "no" doesn't even exist for her.......:-) :-)
Glad all is well with you and Sassy girl!

We'll.Erica...unless she tries to get kitties!!! Yeah, I'm afraid had there been cute little kitties in it there wouldn't even be a bag left" Ugh!
Even then it would have been something like' "Hannah, sweetheart' your precious' adorable chunk of love, would you pease mind if asked you to put the kitties down?". OOPS! Too late:-)

Will look forward to your update on Jilly girl tomorrow!

Okey Dokey Smokey, little GSD brother of Princess Roxie, believes Happy Hannah may have been framed...happens to him quite often.  Of course, there are 3 cats in the house who are completely capable of doing something like that so that's his story.

Hummmmmmmm ....hadn't thought about that angle GSD! I'll do a little more investigating with my other four legged critters.

Thanks for the heads up:-) :-)

Hannah - How dare your Mother put that bag on your head and blame you for eating all the popcorn! What is she really hiding????? There are ways to handle these things...

Spirit Shooter was a Miniature Australian Shepherd who was diagnosed with a MCT and had a LF amp 1/28/13 at 13-1/2 years old. 

Shooter crossed the Bridge on 8/28/13, his 7 month ampuversary and two weeks from his 14th birthday.

Happy Hannah has the good grace to look away in embarrassment. The ears say it all, we call those ears "guilty ears" and we used to see them a lot when Dotty had four legs that would get her into trouble mainly on the dinner table when no-one was looking. One summer holiday she stole a cake a day for 4 days (we are slow learners), her nadir arrived in the form of a whiskey soaked fruit cake that she scoffed when we were farewelling visitors. She reeled off to our room, jumped up on our bed, passed out and wet the bed. Like a sad old boozer. She is also famous for stealing a thawing leg of lamb from a neighbour's deck. Needless to say, her new tripawd configuration is crimping her food theft habit.

Get that hound a fruit cake!

 

Love from Victoria and (hic) Dotty.

haha!

oh, Happy Hannah. Roxy does the same thing (ignores me) when she is in trouble. She loves popcorn, too :)

You have a great sense of humour like your mom. Keep loving life and making your momma and everyone here smile :)

Love the pics. More! More!
