LOOK!! See for yourselves! That's a rib, right?? Hmmm.....or is it fat rolls?? I'm gonna fatten her up with a bone just in case! I'll give it to her laying by the woodstove so she doesn't have to over-exert herself! Too much exercise might cause another rib to show clap !

Oh no Hannah I think you have an eating disorder!

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

Yes, those look like ribs to me...ribs with lots and lots of padding on them! Happy Hannah should have lots of extra treats and bones. It's very important to keep that padding on her ribs!

Hugs,
Carol

That aint no rib! That looks like she swallowed BELLE

Jill is a 9-year-old tuxedo kitty. She was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in June 2012 on her toe in her right hind leg. Her leg was amputated on 12/12/12 and she completed four rounds of chemo (2 of Carbo, 2 of Doxy) in April 2013.

When I read your title I fully expected to see Happy Hannah with a slab of ribs on a plate in front of her!  "Hannah's Ribs" :)

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

I thought it would be those deer ribs that Hannah seems to favor. Poor Hannah...wasting away to immense!

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!
