Oh Bart, you are such a beautiful dog, inside and out.
You have been such an inspiration for so many tripawds. I know you were a huge inspiration when we were on our journey with our Hunter. May your spirit never be forgotten. I hope you find all of your tripawd friends at the Rainbow Bridge and shine down on all of us forever.
Love, Super Dog Angel Hunter's pack

Our Super Dog Hunter crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on a beautiful summer day in July, just 3 days shy of his 10th Birthday. He gave us everything since he was 8 weeks old. Hunter was a 14 month warrior of OS. We LOVE and MISS him every day.

Yep Darci, you definitely got it right. Such a great picture. I think about Bart a lot and I know he is guiding Ms Towanda.

My sweet Lily taking a break during our December 13, 2014 play session at the field behind the library next door. I can't believe this was taken just 4 weeks ago and now she has been gone for a whole week. Rest in peace, my love, and know that I will ALWAYS miss your abundant love and the deep joy you brought to my life!
Lily the Great Dane (she was actually a lot more than just "Great") joined our family as an ornery puppy on December 20, 2005 and changed our lives forever. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in early May of 2014 and her right rear leg was amputated on May 8, 2014. She sailed through 5 rounds of Carboplatin and 15 weeks of Pallladia. She hopped on 3 legs like she was born to it and continued to fight cancer with grace, valor and an abundant sense of humor...and always a *giant* smile on her face. Lily had two small nodules on her lungs but was brought short by a brain tumor in late December, 2014. Lily earned her wings on December 28, 2014 and we miss her terribly every day. http://lilyt.tripawds.com

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

One month, one day an angel. Still getting through it, still sad sometimes, still miss him, but the show must go on as some say.
I took this pic soon after I adopted him last March. He always jumped in the tub after someone showered and liked the water droplets all up. Eventually he quit doing that, if I could trade all the bad habbits, accidents and destroyed shoes that Calvert had when I first got him to have him back, I would do it in a heartbeat.
Awww. Could Calvert have been part cat? I've never seen a doggie do that. Way cute. Can't believe it's been a month already. I'll bet he's having a ball chewing up shoes in doggie heaven. And yeah, I hear ya, all of the messed up furniture and crazy stunts are nothing compared to the goodness animals bring int our lives.
