OMG!!! How lucky is Auntie Linda?!? Her own special message from the one and the only Elsie Pie (and I presume Meg is camera shy today?). So adorable!!!
And how lucky were Meg and Elsie to get special toys from Auntie Linda since they couldn’t join at the party!

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
