Oh wow!!! Those photos of Happy Hannah are totally gorgeous!

A huge congrats to both of you on this great milestone.

And thank you for being such a great inspiration on this site for many of those newly arrived pawrents looking for answers and struggling at the start of their journey - and for your kind words for those of us 'oldies' who are at the end of their journeys. It is lovely to see how far you have both come from those early posts four months ago (and I mean that in a very sincere way). I know those early days were so hard for you.

Happy Hannah is a trooper - and here is to many more very happy ampuversaries! clap

Such an uplifting update!  I'm hopping on the plane with Erica and dognapping that sweet thing!  Hannah is just beautiful!  I love her to pieces and I haven't even met her.

Congrats to you both.'ve come a long way baby!

Liberty (Libby) was diagnosed with OSA on 1-22-13.  Right front amputation on 1-31-13. No IV Chemo. Metronomic Therapy started 2-19-13 along with supplements and some home cooking. Lungs clear until 1-06-14.  She's still her happy, hoppy, bossy self.  Living the dog life to the fullest and a proud Winter Warrior. :) RIP my Libby 4-21-03 to 3-19-14

OH MY GOSH!!!! Because of the evil people attacking the web site I missed this. I am so sorry Hannah.




You are the most beautiful, big girl in the world and we are so glad to be here to celebrate with you. We are doing official happy dances and butt wiggles around here in honor of you. I think we will celebrate for at least a month until the next ampuversary!


Love- Luanne & Shooter

Spirit Shooter was a Miniature Australian Shepherd who was diagnosed with a MCT and had a LF amp 1/28/13 at 13-1/2 years old. 

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

Happy Hannah has seen each one of your replies and she, and I are touched so very deeply!

The generosity of spirit from you just warms how hearts......seriously....warms our hearts!

Like everyone else, I've not been able to send replies without them going off in kanoodle land somewhere. Of course, only after I've spent time trying to the them...and then you hold your breath, hit reply...and you k ow the rest of the story!

Anyway, s soon as the site's rid of those jackass scum bucket nimrod pee brains, I'm going g to respond to each of you who were so kind to celebrate with us:-) :-)

We love you all and are sending you and your beloved dogs and cats continue used healing energy!

Yeah, I like the idea of one big ongoing celebration! No rest required---the moy will carry us through!

Okay, paws crossed....going to hit the "reply" button!
