OH YEAH.....A PICTURE IS COMING! Apparently fly Happy Hannah sent Jerry a picture where SHE requested starting a new thread!! Ta dum....Hannah has me thoroughly trained to do anything she wants anytime she wants...so here is her celebratory new page!!

Once past recovery...which I NEVER could have done without my tripawd family....she continues to thrill me everyday with her joy and happiness and loving her life!!

I didn't think it was possible to lover her any deeper-----it is:-) :-)

I didn't think it was possible for her to be any happier....she is:-) :-)

I didn't think it was possible for her to be anymore spoiled...she is:-) :-)

I didn't think it was possible to slim her down from a plus size model to a svelte, slim size model....IT'S NOT! hasn't lost an ounce. But when her bucket list consists of food, food, food, belly rubs, rolling in the grass and just laying around wagging her tail (tail wagging is a huge part of her exercise routine)_____well, OK , you get the picture!!

SPEAKING OF------can't wait for her mug to pop up again Hope you all like it!!

All I know is, RIGHT NOW she is enjoying just BEING DOG! I'm not kidding, she JUST loves life!! EVERYTING deserves a tail wag!

IF "it" had to happen.......... I wouldn't trade our time together for all the four legs in the world!!

So Happy Hanny and I celebrate for all brave tripawds, past, present and future. We celebrate the joy of being part of the most understanding compassionate souls in the land! We're still holding on and not letting go! we love EACH of you!

WAG ON HAPPY HANNAH, WAG ON!! Grinning ear to ear just thinking about you------that's my version of a tail wag!!

ICE CREAM FOR HAPPY HANNAH AND GIDDILY HAPPY ME TOO. Sent each of you some Ben & Jerry's "Colbert American Dream" ice cream.......hope it doesn't melt before it gets there!!

Sally and Happy Hannah

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!

mmmmmmmmmmmmmm americone dream is mine and jill's FAV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW'D YOU KNOW!?

 

Now Salt, when you made that post four months ago, gee, when I think of what the title of that post was....did you ever think this is where you'd be four months later?  You two are a great pair and you got through it together.  You are such a wonderful Mom to Happy Hannah and it is so evident in all your actions and writing.

 

This community is so much richer for you being a part of it that I am GLAD you had to come looking for us :D

 

CANT WAIT to see this new pic.  You give that Hannah lots of big kisses and, ok, I'll even say its ok for her to chase a kitty today since it's her ampuversary ;)

 

Jill will get many many extra treats tonight to celebrate!!

 

All our love, kisses and hugs,

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.

Awww, Happy Ampuversary Hannah!!!  Make mom give you extra belly rubs tonight!!!

Lisa

Zeus was a Husky mix diagnosed with Osteosarcoma at age 11.  A visible lung met and suspicious spot on his liver meant a poor prognosis-six weeks was our vet's best guess. We decided to fight for our boy and his right front leg was amputated on 12/1/11. We did six rounds of chemo, changed his diet and spoiled him completely rotten. We were blessed with 10 great months after diagnosis. Against the odds, the lung met remained a single met and grew very little over those months. A wonderful furbaby with the most gentle spirit, he fought with a strength that we never imagined he possessed. We have no regrets...

Way to go Hannah and Sally!  I am so so very happy that Hannah is doing good and having a good time doing it.  Many belly rubs from us.

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.

On this a hoppy, beautiful occasion, let's celebrate how far both Hannah and Sally have come since the first day Sally wrote "Was concerned she wouldn't be able to walk after surgery, now I fear she may not recover from it."

Are we talking about THIS HAPPY HANNAH? I think NOT!

Hoppy Ampuversary you beautiful girl! May you have a million more.
