I guess it had to happen…. in the process of sorting through Sally’s photos, the Megastar has fallen in love…

She was actually being quite helpful for once, but now, I’m afraid it’s a lost cause. She’s just mooning around with a silly grin on her face and playing Estelle non-stop…

Meg, Mutt, aged around 11, adopted 31/12/2009. Sudden explosive right elbow fracture 06/12 (caused by IOHC), diagnosed with End Stage Arthritis 03/15, Total Elbow Replacement 08/15, problems with healing leading to skin graft & skin flap surgery, Chronic Infection leading to implant breakdown. Became a Tripawd 9th March 2016.

On October 27, 2016, nearly 6 months after amputation, and 18 months since his cancer likely started, we lost Pofi to a recurrence of Soft Tissue Sarcoma in his spine quite suddenly.  His canine sister also succumbed to cancer on March 1, 2019 - we lavished her with our love in the interim, but life was never quite the same without her only real canine friend. Cliff kitty had to leave us, too, suddenly, in August 2019. Lucia kitty grieved all these losses, but helped us welcome two new Lurchers into our home and our lives, Shae and Barley.

October 15, 2000 to April 8, 2014

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

I’m sooooo thrilled to know this!!!!   OMD!!!!    That picture speaks the truth!!! 🙂 🙂    AS DO “THEIR” SONG(S) 🙂 🙂

I’ve not discussed this with Frankie yet, as I need to make sure Merry Myrtle isn’t listening.  I need to kknowfrom Frankie what his feelings are first.  I’m not exactly sure how she will react.

Pretty sure though, based on the way Frankie was snuggling and loving in you at the EPIC pawty, he was certainly obviously suckin’ up to you non-stop!    Is it possible Meg and Frankie have already been in contact and Frankie knows you will be his Mum-in-law??? 🙂

AND THAT MEANS A WEDDING JUST MAY BE IN THE WORKS….AND THAT MEANS ANOTHER EPIC GATHERING SOMEWHERE.   OMD!!!!   THIS XOULD BE THE BEST WEDDING EVER!!!

Hmmmmmmm…….just sayin’……….:-) 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Looooooving this!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

I hear wedding bells!

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