Sorry it's giving you fits Sally.  We'll figure it out.  For now, I'm going to take my girls to bed.  Have a good night.

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.

I'm back I'm back! Sorry, we were on a zombie walk last night.

Let's see if this helps. The first pic is where you go to change your settings. It's just below the video when you view it (you must be logged in to see this).

The second pic shows where you change it from private to public.

Belated Hoppy Ampuversary you sweet thing!  I just love her face.  She makes me smile.  Way to keep up the fight you two!

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

Happy 8 months Hannah!
Can't wait to untangle the videos...maybe for 9 months?

The pugs will celebrate tomorrow by spending the day at Grandpa's house. They don't get to do that much anymore so it will be special, just like Hannah!

8 MONTHS!!!!  YEY!!!!  Oh, my goodness YEY Hannah!  Even though we can't see the videos, we feel the love from here.  Happy 8, girlie girl.  I'm glad you had that special beef to make it all better!

~ 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!
