Of course...that means another excuse to post a Happy Hannah video!! She doesn't kw it's not "really" her tenth birthday yet.....and she doesn't care!!

So her birthday plate consisted of........one scoop of chocolate chip ice cream (shhhh...chocolate's bad for dogs) .baked hamburger, turkey eggs.....topped with cream cheese .....DEER POOP....and a little dollip of "Cool Whip".....(shhh.....Cool Whip's bad for dogs) And the deer poop? Blueberries...but she figured that out.

HAPPY almost TEN YEARS OLD VIRTHDAY my beloved, so very, very beloved HAPPY HANNAH!!!

Dig in everyone!

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!

Ohhh...and the reason she hesitated a second after I blew the candles out is she saw them starting to smolder on the blanket I tossed them on!!! Good job Happy Hannah!!

Sally, you are great!!!! Boy Hannah looks well fed. I need to bring Ty to your house. He keeps dropping. Maybe I need to get him some ice cream and cool whiplaughing. As for washing the blankets, I get it. Ty eats on his most of the time. I went to a childrens' consignment shop and bought 3 crib quilts fro $3 each. They fit his bed well and I can switch them when needed. You may need a bigger one though....She looks so good I cannot believe it. Ty & Lori

TY GUY, Best Black Lab ever! Diagnosed  and had amp in January, 2014. Kicked MRSA's butt. Earned his angel wings on April 16, 2014. Run Free my boy and don't forget a shoe. Ty is a proud member of the " April Angels". Ty sent us Daryl, a Tripawd rescue in Sept. of 2016. Daryl is 5 +or -. We are also Pawrents to Chandler, a Border Collie mix who is 15 and 1/2, Lucy, a Corgi who is 7, 2 minis, 2 horses, and a feisty cat named Zoe. Zoe had a non skeletal Osteosarcoma removed in July 2015. No Chemo, she was at least 16. She is going strong although she is now completely blind. She is now close to 20 and her hobbies are eating and sleeping in front of her personal heater.

I think that is the ONLY time I have seen Hannah hesitate with a plate of food since she had so many choices, she didn't know where to start! 🙂 

 

Happy celebration, Hannah!!!! you eat so well... Shelby is jealous ... she gets no cool whip or icecream (other than frosty paws). 🙂 

 

Love and hugs!

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

WOWWEEE! Now THAT is a birthday cake!!!

HOPPY 10th BIRTHDAY HANNAH!

Did you know that every day is a birthday? Really think about it, every day we are one day older, and so what if there's this "date" on a calendar that says it's our official birthday...every day is brand new to us so why not pawty it up with every new day we get to enjoy our life with our humans?

WOOOHOOO! Hannah, go for it! We are right there with ya. Just don't let your Momma burn down the house with all those candles!

I liked Eather and Snoop's designation of Happy Hannah Day. Every day should be Happy Hannah Day. More pasties for all!
Kathi and Murphy

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!
