Okay now.....DON'T PEEK Yet til sweet Jerry has time t post my gratuitous phots.....because SHE can!

CELEBRATING FIVE MONTHS OVER HERE! Break out the ice cream!!

It's FIVE blissfully glorious months (and still counting...heck yeah' still counting!) of soooooo much loving and spoiling!! The happiest times that will stay with me forever!! She is having a ball getting loved! I think that tail of hers has wagged non-stop sice ampitation (well, except for that darn recover time)!

Of course, because of the priceless and ongoing support offered here, I am "living like a dog" being present with her and surround her with the most playful, positive, healing loving energy possible! The life alterng gifts of this journey are almost magical and make us all grow and expand the love in our souls to infinity

It is a privilege to be on this journey with such loving, caring people AND their heroic animal companions!

Happy Hannah and I are the "lucky" ones to have this ongoing time together. We ALWAYS celebrate in honor of present and future tripawds and those souls who crossed over but live on forever in our hearts

LOVE YOU HAPPY HANNAH and I am eternally grateful for every sacred second you share with me!

Pouring Coke n our chocolate ice crem over here!, UMMY! She and I are both slobbering!!

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!

WOW! has it been five months already since that first post!?  WAY TO GO HAPPY HANNAH AND MOMMY SALT!

 

You guys are such a great team and such a wonderful part of this community.  It's been such a pleasure getting to know both of you.  Can't wait to see those PICS!

 

I hope that's the drinking kind of coke you're given to her....I don't think the other kind is part of any metronomics protocol I've ever heard of.....

 

All our love on your special day,

Erica & Jill

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.

Happy Ampuversary Hannah!

Sally, you and Hannah are such an important part of this site, always upbeat and supportive.  And, if you will excuse me, always good for a laugh big-grin.

So the most recent Sallyism: live like a dog!  I've always said 'Be More Dog ', but your way works too, especially if you are living like Hannah gets to live- lots of love and treats and spoiling!

The pugs will be thrilled to watch me eat ice cream in Hannah's honor tonight. Green bean treats for the pugapalooza- their little stomachs don't do well with ice cream.

Keep on doing what you are doing- I for one am thrilled that you sharing your journey here with us.

OMG!  Oh MY!  A most HAPPY, HOPPY 5 months!!!  I can't believe it's been 5 months.  Amazing.  Way to go!

~ Katy & Jackson

ACL tear in right hind leg 12/5/12 and scheduled ACL repair surgery 12/21/12. Pre-op xrays revealed osteosarcoma. Amputation 12/28/12.  Chemo (carboplatin) started Jan 10, 2013 and ended on April 5, for a total of 5 doses. He handled carbo like a champ!  No side effects.  We started metronomic therapy at his third chemo and have been also doing some holistic treatments.  He's a lively, playful 10 year old huskie-boarder collie and a very proud member of the Winter Warriors!  Our love. Our funny little guy!

Woo Hoo Hannah! Break out that eight-cup bathing suit and celebrate!

Love, Murph

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!

Hoppy Ampuversary Happy Hannah.  I can't believe its been 5 months already.  I remember that first post so well.  You both have come so far and are an amazing part of this community.  Thank you for staying so upbeat & giving us that laugh when we need it.  You both deserve props and I guess the coke & ice cream are great to start LOL

 

I can't wait for the pictures either.
