Sally, sweetie pie 💗

I can’t believe what happened 😳

My heart, Angel Happy Hannah’s and Angel Eurydice’s are right there with you and Frankie 💕

I have to say I totally agree with not paying that 600 bucks bill and also yes, please start a gofundme account and explain how we can contribute (haven’t got a clue what to do) 

As Tina says “we’ve got your back”! 

You, of all tripawdians, are the most caring, loving, pawsitive, wonderfully marvellous human being ever existed and we all totally love you 💗

Tripawds would not be the same without you, you bring light into darkness, warmth when one is lost and cold, you always find the right words to give all of us hope and strength to move on ✊🏽✊🏽

We are ALL with you right now 👭👬👭👬👭

Frankie is, as you say, as tough as nails 🔩🔨🔨 it’s a matter of seeing what works best for him and you’re working on it. 

Our Angels are not far, sweet friend, they are right next to Frankie and will guide him back to good health 🐾🕊🕊🐾

Sending you an enormous avalanche of kisses sugar bun and all my love 😘😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🐮

Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

oh Sally and Frankie! Stewie and I are feeling very deeply for you right now and can hear the complete panic! Like Jackie kindly reminded you to do (cause sometimes we forget to practice what we say to others right?!) BREATHE my love! Just take lovely deep breaths to clear the fog a bit… go outside and ring that lovely big bell out there a few times, yell at who you need to and then call out to all of your angels, they will hear you my darlin’ and will help guide and comfort your heart!

Ask lots of questions, you know that… if you’re not satisfied with the answer, ask for a better option. I know it is terribly easy for me to say all this, not so easy for you to actually put into practical use… vets should be trusted not shopped around for! I agree with Kerren that the $800 bill that you didn’t ask for should be negotiated down to zip, zilch, nothing!!!🤬 if I lived close Sally, that vet would be regretting their actions with you!!!

Holly has a brilliant idea…. please start a GoFund me page! You have so many people that would love to help you in anyway they can Sally! You have been a true star to all of us! You’re words of encouragement (especially in the chocolate department!) (never mind the dogs getting a few extra treats cause of you!!!) and your wonderful sense of humour has pulled many of us out of a very dark place! You didn’t have the opportunity starting out with Happy Hannah, but you are selfless in your giving always! You are worth a million bucks Sally, so let your friends try to help you and Frankie!? Let us know when you get one set up and if you have trouble with that, I’m sure somebody will be able to give you directions. Just call out okay? Do not be afraid to ask. We will be here for you Sally!

you will continue to be in my thoughts and will keep a very close eye on this forum to see what you need lovey!!!

A million cuddles and hugs coming your way. Try not to panic love, stay in touch. As Teresa and Tina said “we got your back!”

Love to you Sally! ❤️❌⭕️❌⭕️❌⭕️❤️

So I was explaining to the girls about Frankie’s operation, and how he’ll need to take it easy for a while as he recovers, and completely on their own, without any help, they went off and made this. The idea, they said, is that Frankie can lie on the sofa and watch it as he convalesces, and it will apparently inspire him to take life easy (like Meg can talk), so anyway here it is…

Clare,

Thank you for helping Meg and Elsie Pie post this “Cool” video.  I am sure Frankie & Sally will love it.    They will probably watch it multiple times while Frankie recovers.
