Well only a couple of weeks ago it looked like Kaiserin might not have made it through the night and now she has recovered well from surgery and had an article about her painting ability featured in the local newspaper (link below). We don’t know how much time we have bought removing the tumor but we are trying to enjoy every day! Yesterday was a good day – it was her 2 year ampuversary and she was featured in the newspaper!

So happy to know you are feeling much better! I need to get one of your paintings.

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

Awwww! BIG HUGE SMILES HERE! smiley4smiley_clapsp_hearticon2 What a great story, they did a nice job.

She is the most talented Tripawd! It’s so cool that you got news coverage and we can’t even begin to express all our gratitude for what you are doing to help the community with her paintings. We are honored, thank you so very much!

Give her extra kisses from us, and Shultz too!

Grinning ear to ear over here!!😁  Kaiserin  is such a RockStar on so many levels!!  Of course, to us she’s already famous for being a world class tripawd…..who happens topaint….who happens to support the Tripawds community  with her talent….who happens to be showing  everyone she is made of some. mighty tuff stuff!  So thrilled to hear how well she’s doing AND to know she’s being  recognized  for being such an exceptional beautiful  Soul😎

Jackie, thanks for sharing  the one-of-a-kind artwork of Kaiserin’s.  Its just so special..  Clearly your kitty knows a good piece of art.   even when a doggy creates it😉


Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

PS.  HAPPY TWO YEAR AMPUVERSARY!!!  Such a great reason to celebrate!!!!😎

BTW , had happy tears in my eyes watching  Kaiserin  painting and listen to the joy in your voice a d seeing how pleased Kaiserin looked when she completed  each stroke.  Such a loving bond….unbreakable  bond.  The article  was well written and heartfelt.  I’m sure Kaiserin  touched the writer’s heart….and well as the hearts of everyone  who read it.

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!
