Hannah!!! Where have you gone? You skinny minnie!!!! Looking good Hannah! 🙂
And Jill - I love your videos! You're buddy Jack is definitely a healthy kitty. 🙂
I can "feel" Shelby's ribs but I can't see them but I can't remember the last time I did see them. Shelby's belly is also hanging a bit low and as much as I try and get her to do some 'sit-ups' ... she doesn't have the same commitment to fitness as I do. She's embracing her senior body now!
Thank you for sharing, as always!

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

SHELBY? Doing sit-ups?? Buttercup wants to see that!!
JAY! Yeah! Greyhounds look graceful and elegant with their ribs showing... I think Bull Mastiffs have blubber tubes in place of ribs!
OKAY BAILEY!! Just remember, you'll be competing with a Diva Plus-sized Model, well-muscled, brawny, voluptuous, curvy, big boobed (eight of them) coogar who slobbers when she kisses!!! Just sayin'....... You hang in there Bailey and you'll be showing newbies how it's done!!
Love to ALL
