Shanna thank you for letting us know.
Millie, we are so heartbroken for all of your pack, I'm so sorry.
You fought so hard, and you showed the world that even in a relatively short period of time you could still live with courage, love and hope. We will never forget you.
Glenn, the Tripawd community sends our love and sympathy to you and Sid.

I could feel the love you have for her in your posts and I am sure so did Millie. This fight is a monster that so few of our precious pups win. I am so glad that you had the time you did. She knows you gave it your all, she did too. My heart hurts for you. Please know that we are here whenever you need us.
Hugs from Sammy and Elizabeth
Diagnosed with osteosarcoma in the right front leg 8/23/10,
leg fractured 8/27/10,
leg amputated 8/30/10
I couldn't begin to say how special Sammy is to us. Living and laughing with and loving this wonderful boy is priceless.
Thank you all for your lovely messages of support.
I am so proud of Millie and the incredible way
she dealt with her illness. Do I have any regrets about her having the
amputation? None at all. It was the right thing to do and I would never
wish anyone to be put off doing the same because of the relatively short time we have
I am now taking Sid for a long walk. He is pining for his sister.

Now its Sid who needs your attention and you his. You guys did a wonderful job managing Millies' cancer. I can certainly relate to your post that it was an honor to have tended to her over the past several months. What amazing and inspiring life lessons these dogs teach us. I had less than 5 months post op with my boy Alex, but we shared quality time with the rest of his pack (Bure & Tucker). Alexei's pack sure helped me through this and Sid will be there for you. Bless you guys...
I have now updated and transferred my journal to the following address:
I hope this is useful for anyone facing the difficult choices that we did with Millie throughout her battle with o/s.
Thank you for inspiring me to write all this down as it happened and also for introducing us to the special gift of looking after a tripawd.
Glenn & Sid
