Oh my...here is my girl, livin' life to the fullest this afternoon, enjoying her own winter Olympics.  She's a gold medalist in tennis ball! :)

Ha ha, at the end of the video you hear one of my sons say "There goes Sam"...Sammie takes every opportunity to slink away when we're not looking.  Hubby got her back. :)

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

Good girl Libby!

Your Canadian buddy, Tucker and you could be twins....right down to which leg you had amputated :)

 

Have fun in the snow.

Oh Libby! You make snow storms look so fun!

Keep on trucking pretty girl! It's great to see you looking so awesome.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

That is FANTASTIC!!!  Libby is the best!  Oh MY, Libby, you are loving up on that ball and snow.  I love it, love it, love it...but not as much as you, girl!  Keep it up, girlie.  You're just perfect.

~ Katy & Jackson

ACL tear in right hind leg 12/5/12 and scheduled ACL repair surgery 12/21/12. Pre-op xrays revealed osteosarcoma. Amputation 12/28/12.  Chemo (carboplatin) started Jan 10, 2013 and ended on April 5, for a total of 5 doses. He handled carbo like a champ!  No side effects.  We started metronomic therapy at his third chemo and have been also doing some holistic treatments.  He's a lively, playful 10 year old huskie-boarder collie and a very proud member of the Winter Warriors!  Our love. Our funny little guy!
