Thank you so much Sally- just what I needed to see after a rough weekend.

I'm so glad our babies continually know how much they are loved and missed.

This is such a beautiful tribute to the beloved Tripawds who've recently passed on.  You are such a compassionate soul and you bring healing to those on this journey.

I along with everyone else in this community are so blessed to have you in our lives, to lend encouragement when we're down or advice when we don't know what to do.

May you finally be healthy and running free at the Rainbow Bridge. Until we meet again my sweet boy!

Thank You my dear friend, Saint Sally,

A wonderful tribue to Tahoe and all the other angels who crossed in August and Sept. We are still reeling from what seemed like continual heartache...

I know you say Jerry is waiting at the bridge and handing out purple hearts but on this earth you should be front and center for your purple heart...

Much love,

Stirling and Guardian Tahoe

"Tahoe" - Our Amazing Superman and Best Friend.

Dec. 01-03 to Aug. 19-14

Diagnosed with Periarticular Hystiocystic Sarcoma Feb 14-13; Amputation March 18-13, and diagnosed with STS April-14. Tahoe touched so many people while visiting us, leaving a massive void in our lives. Always Missed, Never Forgotten!!

Ah Sally,

Im not around a lot lately, but here I come on early this morning and Snoops banner page pops up along with reading this beautiful tribute to all of our beautiful angels that have passed. Boy if that doesn't tell me he's watching as are all the others that have passed nothing else could. 

Your kindness and constant consideration is truly beautiful.
