Okay, this is a different video from the other day, promise! You'll see a Jill kitty trying to get her cookies. You'll see Happy Hannah uaing her paw to get the paper off! Thank you for indulging us! I'M JUST SO PROUD I COULD POP OPEN!!

BAHAHAHAHAH!  Look at Hannah opening that bag!!  That was great!  And when you first shook that bag of cookies and that little Jill cat came running I thought maybe you kidnapped Jill to make that video!  I'll get some video when I get home of Jill running for her treats, looks the same!

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.

Oh the slobber!!!  Hannah you are nothing short of wonderful!

 

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!

Oh Hannah....you are such a beautiful girl!

And so tolerant of all her feline family members who she "alleges" were trying to steal her treats.

Keep up the good work Hannah!

You are an inspiration to all of us "larger sized" tripawds.

And the GRAND PRIZE goes to The Best Mom/Cheerleader/One-Woman Support Group, Super Sally, whose joy and love and goodness shine through in every post and video.  SO glad I can come home from a crappy day at work and laugh until the tears fall to see the continuing antics of Happy Hannah and her furry family in all their glory.

 

I think the Slobber Queen prize is also pretty well taken, too; congrats, Hannah on all your talents!

:) Hannah steals the show, but those kitties are pretty funny trying to get her cookies!

Barret was diagnosed with Hemangiopericytoma May 16, 2013. Front left leg/scapula/pectoral muscle was amputated on June 11, 2013 and we've never looked back. Follow our story on http://barret.t.....pawds.com/ and read my column on That Pet Blog

Congrats on your win, Hannah!  You beat out all the other contestants!  WAHOO!

I think I know where all her "muscles" come from.  It's from eating a whole bag 'o plastic.  Too many plastic wrappers stay on your hips for a lifetime, girlie.  aw-shucks

We're SO proud of you!!!!!

~ K&J

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!
