Heaven got a sweet and beautiful angel.



Her Retired AvatarComet - 1999 to 2011

She departed us unexpectedly  January 23, 2011 at the age of 12 1/2.

She was born with a deformed front leg and a tripawd all of her life.

Yes, I already visited her blog and left a comment earlier.   So sad to lose such a beauty at such a young age.  She is now with all her other tripawd family members (from this site) in doggie heaven and other cancer battlers who had 4 legs (like our dog Bonnie). 

May she rest in peace.

-Chloe's mom

Chloe became a rear amp tripawd on 7-29-10. Another tumor was removed on front leg 2-20-14. Found 3rd tumor on neck 2-2015, but she's still kicking cancer's butt at age 14. Chloe's blog

Thank you Comet for keeping up with the blogs and keeping us informed.

Ginger's pawrents fought with all they had to give.  She was loved.  A very sad ending.

Thank you for the update here Comet, I just now had a chance to get online after being away yesterday. This is such sad news.

Ginger, you will always be our superstar here, and will never, ever be forgotten.

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