Oh Sally... your soul is amazing ... what a beautiful thing ...

August and September has been heart-wrenching BUT our angels have greeted their new friends w/open arm and us humans stay here to help heal their hearts ....

 

much love,

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Sally -  beautiful tribute to our angels of the Tripawd Community, and their brave "pawrents", that serve as examples to all of us that are battling this battle.  Not a day goes by without an example of courage, resilience, and love.

Daniel & Johnnie

Our awesome Golden Boy was diagnosed for OSA in April 2014 in the proximal humerus, front-leg amp on 05/20/2014. Finished chemo (Carbo6) on 07/10/2014. Ongoing treatment: acupuncture + K-9 Immunity Plus ( 3chews) and home-cooked no-grain diet.   Stopped Apocaps because of liver issues.   Liver issues: controlling altered enzymes with SAM-e and Milk Thistle.  October 17:  started having seizures.  Taking fenobarbital for seizures.  April 18: started prednisone.

Awww, Sally... Thanks for the lovely tribute to our August and September angels. I take so much comfort picturing them playing together and knowing that they were welcomed by Happy Hannah, Jake. Shelby, Polly, Ty and so many others.

(((Big Hugs!!!)))

Sally,

So very thoughtful and sweet.......and so many more brave Tripawd princes and princesses shining their eternal light; Continuing to keep all their moms and dads in my thoughts, and hoping each day brings them closer to peace and much less pain within their hearts.

Love,
