I love, love, love that you are sharing your adventures with us!  We haven’t been to Portugal, so this is so great to see.  And I love watching the way Eurydice gallops lol.

I love her walking herself laughing

The cheeseburger from the chef!  wow, how nice! heart

Cassie always tries to catch water from the sprinkler – she would love one that’s installed in the ground & just stays there for her to catch all day!  lol

She’s so beautiful in the forest.  And next to the car is great!laughing

And your parent, oh my goodness!  How precious are they!  That they would cry for Eurydice (and you). ….that’s gold.heart

There’s something about spending time with childhood friends. smiley

Keep sharing!   Donna

WOW… you are an international ambassador for the Tripawds nation!!! How very cool to travel and show how well a dog – a BIG dog – can do on three legs!!! I love these photos and hearing about your trip. Truly amazing!!! Thank you for sharing and passing the world about our beloved tripawds!

Hugs,

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

This is just the most amazing adventure!! Thank you so much for sharing laughingI am only a little bit jealous! You have such a fantastic opportunity to spend wonderful quality time with your girl – and look how much she is enjoying it. You can see her excitement and joy in every bound she takes and that is just priceless. I feel terrible for the heart ache your parents felt at finding out about the cancer but hopefully they can take comfort from the memories and special time you are all spending together now.

She really is a true inspiration for all of us and for anyone finding themselves at the beginning of this journey. With the right love, care and precautions we can all continue to thrive and live life to its fullestheart

Take care, have fun and keep the pictures coming!

He loved life, loved our family and was the best dog I could ever ask for. Truly my first love, forever in my thoughts and heart.

Sounds like so much fun!  Eurydice looks so happy!  A true global citizen.

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

I love that she had a napkin while having lunch!

One of the ways we beat cancer is that we live life to the fullest and not dwell on the disease.  Eurydice is a wonderful (and gigantic!) example of enjoying the moment.

Keep the pictures, videos and stories coming, it would be nice to see a picture of you and Eurydice!

Hi Christine heart

There is nothing Eurydice loves more than getting in the car and travel for days non end!

I could not have hoped for better companions than her and my previous Dane, Kinky.

So, on we go !

Sending you much love and cuddles to sweet Tess heart
