What a handsome boy Maxwell was. That hoppy smile of his will live on in your heart and ours, he is unforgettable.

I’m so sorry for your loss Sharon.

LOVE LOVE LOVE looking at everyone’s babies on here. Here is my girl. I can’t look at her pictures enough this week. So grateful to have  a place to share the pictures and find comfort in this difficult time. Thank you everyone!

My beautiful Lily. 

Her favorite…on the beach, wet from swimming with her tennis ball near by.

I swear my girl was half fish. She loved being underwater. There were clams at the bottom of this bucket. She didn’t mind diving for them. :)  

I love you, Lily Bear. I think about you all the time. You still make me smile. Run free baby girl!

I sure never thought that Murphy’s picture would be here this soon. We were looking forward to so much more. Even though Gus was an honorary Tripawd, I had to include him in this gallery, too

Kathi

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

Thank you Kathi. We never thought he’d be here now either. So very, very sorry.

Thank you Sally. She was always shining and her personality showed through her many facial expressions. I type this with a heavy and joyous heart.
