Yes sireeee....yet another reason to ask Jerry to post photos of the slimmed down version!! So don'tr peek yet if you don't see the photos.....coordinating with Jerry who is hopefully enjoying her Fourth and not anywhere near a computer.. So PLEASE come back if photos aren't up! My pride in Happy Hannah has no shame!

Now o peeking til photos are up.

So getting all test done to proceed with metronomics , blood work great AND she's lost THREE OUNCES! When they weighed her they said, "We'll just put 115 lbs.--close enough!". Close enough?? Heck no! Her weight is 114 and 12 oz.......She's lost weight! YAY HAPPY HANNAH!

Want us to come in Monday to do another three panel Xrays. Onco.--and then radiologist weren't able to look at them til other day cuz they were at other locations......yeah...la la land! Not thrilled about that....said ones my vet took weren't really thorough enough...anyway...whatever. My vet said they looked good by the way! So YAY HAPY HANNAH!

Okay, so if Jerry post in sequence here are tag lines__

FIRST picture----me whispering in her ear I love her...and what a good girl she is! She LOVES it when I whisper to her. She really does.

SECOND photo....Me whispering in her ear telling her how proud I am that she cut back on her COOKIES and lost weight! Note word COOKIES

THIRD photo.... Happy Hannah's slobber blowing in the breeze because I said the word COOKIE

I'm sorry.....I just can't help myself! YAYJERRY for making this possible!! Don't blame me.....blame Jerry:-) :-)

Thanks to everyone for all you do for all of us in so many special and individual ways!!

Sally and Skinny mini HAPPY HANNAH. the o lay thing "bad" about her losing three ounces is.....it's three less ounces for me to love!!:-) :-)

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

OMG Hannah - you are light as a feather now!!! I think you shall have to write a weight loss book. Shooter would certainly agree with popcorn in his diet!

Spirit Shooter was a Miniature Australian Shepherd who was diagnosed with a MCT and had a LF amp 1/28/13 at 13-1/2 years old. 

Shooter crossed the Bridge on 8/28/13, his 7 month ampuversary and two weeks from his 14th birthday.

Woo hoo,Hannah! You go, girl! On your way to the Miss Doggie America competition, aren't you? Be careful, Jill might get jealous. BTW. Where do I find that diet doggie popcorn? My mom makes me eat nasty things like green beans, carrots and pumpkin and tells me that they are "treats".

Murphy

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!

oh my! look at how HAPPY Hannah is when her Mommy is whispering into her ear!!  I just love it!!!!!!!!!!!  She knows she's done good!!!  

 

I always thought Jill was the worlds best drooler but turns out I was WRONG, LOOK at all that drool!!!!!!!!  The word cookie will do that to a girl I guess!!!!  

 

Keep up the good work and you'll get more lovely whispers from your mommy for sure!!! (although I bet you get them all the time anyway!!!!)
