2. Good job loading the video- why load only once when you know we would replay it anywaybig-grin.

3. I think Obie could sleep in Hannah's bowl. big-grinbig-grin

4. Have you thought about investing in a tripod (wow, it's hard to type that word), I got a little dizzy watching the vid big-grin big-grinbig-grin.

HOPPY AMPUVERSARY HANNAH GIRLIE!!!!!!!

Thank you for sharing!!!  even though you didn't share your steak!!!

Christine.... with Franklin in her heart♥♥♥♥

Franklin, he was the Happiest Dog on Three Legs! Diagnosed 09/26/2012 with Osteosarcoma, amputated 12/4/2012.  Had a wonderful 5 1/2 months painfree until he ran for the Bridge on 5/15/2013.  Always in my heart, and always a guardian angel of my pack...   You can follow his Tripawd Adventures, before and after, in my blog, Frank'n'Farter!

Oh, wow! What a great video! And what a polite girl, Hannah!

Congratulations on yet another milestone. Keep those coming. And Sally, there are now no excuses for not posting videos. LOL,

Kathi and Murphy

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!

Happy 9 Month Ampuversary Hannah!!!!   It looks like you really enjoyed your ampuversary steak!  Maybe you can teach Charley to chew....we got him a t-bone steak for Thanksgiving tomorrow and I can guarantee all the little pieces will go down in a big gulp or two!

I must admit that I got teary eyed when you started crying...I know exactly how you feel!  Sending lots of positive thoughts and prayers to Hannah for many many many many more years and months of celebrations and ampuversaries with you!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Love, hugs, and chocolate Labby kisses,

Ellen and Charley xoxo

How could you doubt your precious angel wouldn't wait for her steak. Now I'll have to try that with Blink. Happy 9 month ampuversary Hannah girl. You are one fine specimen of a dog. And Sally I can't even begin to tell you how much joy and optimism you bring to this site. You also made me cry. Happy Thanksgiving!!
