I can't say any words that will take away the pain but I can give you a lasting memory...
Comet - 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.

That is beautiful Cometdog! Such a lovely tribute to Magic. I especially enjoyed the pics of Magic and Ruthie. So precious.

That is a great tribute to a great dog! I loved seeing the pictures of Magic and Casper again. How sweet.
Holly joined the world of tripawds on 12/29/2009. She has a big little sister, Zuzu, who idolizes Holly and tries to make all of her toys into tripawds in Holly's honor. And she's enjoying life one hop at a time!

What a beautiful "Magic Moment"! Such sweet sweet photos - I loved seeing him cuddling with OJ and Casper and loved seeing him with Ruthie.....he looked so happy and that's a tribute to you Diane for giving him the best life possible. Great job Smarty Pants Production!
My sweet golden Mackenzie. She became my angel on Dec 29, 2010 at the age of 8 1/2 although she was always my angel from the time we brought her home. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in Sept 2009 and officially became a tripawd (front leg) on Nov 5, 2009. She will be forever in my heart and now she's running free with all of our other tripawd heroes. I love you Mackenzie!

A beautiful tribute to a beautiful wolf dog.
Ge'Lena, you are incredible. Thank you for this wonderful gift to Diane, and all of us too. We sure needed this today.

That is so beautiful. I agree with Fortis' dad, Sadie and Athena are the only ones allowed here with me.
Sadie is my 9yr old Rott/Shepherd mix. Diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her right scapula 1/28/10. Our brave girl had her amputation 2/13/10 and her last chemotherapy on 6/6/10. Unfortunately, a tumor appeared in her back right leg and on 10/7/2010 Sadie's earthly journey came to an end. On 10/24/2010 we adopted Ranger, a handsome Rott/Lab mix tripawd (got hit by a car) I think Sadie sent him to us.
