I certainly couldn't have done this without you fine, fine people.  What a blessing it is and what wonderful hearts you have to care for our 3 legged friends.

You are faithful faithful friends and have been a wonderful resource.


My hat is off to you, you've made a wonderful community.  From the bottom of mine and Mojo's heart (RIP mojo), its an incredible legacy.

Thank you dear dear friends, for all you did for mojo and me!


Mojo is a 7 year-old Brittany Spaniel / Retriever mix rescued from an animal shelter. A car accident took away his right hind leg.

Sweetie pie 🌺

I am so sorry to hear Mojo earned his silver wings but, as you know, he is having the biggest pawty with all of our Angels right now 🐾🕊🕊🕊🕊🐾

The menu will be outstanding and once everybody ate and danced from cloud to cloud they will all sit down to hear all the wonderful stories Mojo has to tell them "my Mom was the loveliest Mom any dog could have 💕 let me tell you how she made my life magical and every moment a true joy 💕

Oh boy, nobody will have a sleep for ages now as Mojo's adventures are being unveiled one after the next 🐾

If you hear thunder I can assure you it is nothing but Angel laughter as Mojo is in full storytelling swing 🌟

Sending you much love and happy laughs from Angel Eurydice too 😘😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹

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 Alex, you touched us immensely with your kind words, coincidentally delivered on what we call “Jerry Day,” the 3rd of the month.

We know in our hearts that somewhere he and Mojo are living it up, two best pals lighting up the heavens and inspiring Tripawds everywhere.

Thank you so much for allowing us to be part of your own magical journey. We miss your boy but will always keep him close in our hearts.
