We will NEVER forget Shilo. In fact I see her picture every morning. It is still sitting in Tazzie's gallery of tripawds, just above his food bowl.

We all love Shiloh Anne.  Not only is she special in her own right, she's in the two-name club 🙂

Gone, but not forgotten.

I will NEVER forget Shilo, and all the others who have passed... You will always be in my heart!! I wish that we could all meet one day... and have a group hug (and cry)... You never know... maybe one day... and if not here... then maybe at the Rainbow Bridge, where we will all be meeting up with our babies!

Angel Jake's Mom

Jake, 10yr old golden retriever (fractured his front right leg on 9/1, bone biopsy revealed osteosarcoma on 9/10, amputation on 9/17) and his family Marguerite, Jacques and Wolfie, 5yr old german shepherd and the newest addition to the family, Nala, a 7mth old Bengal mix kittie. Jake lost his battle on 11/9/2009, almost 8 weeks after his surgery. We will never forget our sweet golden angel… ….. CANCER SUCKS!

Please don't forget Shilo Anne… 

We shall never forget. Thank you for reminding others to visit Shilo Annes' three legged dog blog. ( I fixed the link. Winker ) Your final tribute post for Shilo is beautiful.

And Zeus ol' pal ... your mom has engrained a special place in our hearts for you forever with her generous reminders that the time is indeed now.

No tripawd hero is ever forgotten no matter how long or short the fight. I know all our wonderful fur babies are hanging out together and enjoying the heavens until one day we are reunited with them...and what a wonderful reuinion that will be!!!

Alisa - you are allowed those moments - we all have them and I have to constantly remind myself that I wouldn't hurt so much if I didn't love so much.

Sending you hugs and much love

We will not forget Shilo Anne and the brave fight.  We are extremely apprecative of your support to this community.  You are one of our shining examples that it is not about the quantity of time, but the quality of that time.  Forgive me if my mind is not functioning at the moment.
