Just one ore bandanna video.......well.....if I can get the seo d one working....maybe two!! Both snort though!
Happy Hannah "held back in fear" by bandana! Will attack powerful lawn mower but scared to move with bandanna around her neck.
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!

Can you sew? Get a little ribbon i took some sewed it onto the ends of each side of the bandana. I think it was like 1/2 inch wide. then get some velcro and sew that onto the ribbon. that is an extension. Worked for Sassy and it didn't choke her
By the way loved the video of Hannah. LOL. poor girl she wouldn't even look at her lawn mower

Maybe she could use it as a head scarf?! Nah, I like Michelle's idea.
The lawnmower IS scary by the way. That thing can chop off a leg like nobody's business!

OK, I think these bandanas need to start coming in sizes, because Happy Hannah is choking and Jill's looks like a cape!!!
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.

Making fun of poor Hannah!!! Those beautiful eyes just suck you in and I just want to come out there and hug her (a lot)!!
Don't worry Hannah - Mom will make it bigger and you look absolutely stunning in pink!! That mean old lawn mower will need to be mulched!

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

Perhaps the scarf/capelet is protecting H Hannah from the big mutant lawnmower. She has her back turned in confidence that Tripawds pink will keep her safe.
An extension is a good idea. Although I like the babushka idea, too. Just don't try it at home...there are limits.
