Happy Hannah ad a few bumps in the road this week-end.....pretty big pot holes actually. HOWEVER, she started feeling much better by Sunday and she has me convinced ice cream is her miracle drug!! It certainly worked wonders!

Shhhhhh......there's not much in there, but don't tell her that! Although, I guess she figured it out since she wouldn't share with Barney!

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!

Heh heh! Don't let Barney get too close to that container, you never know what you might catch if he tries to eat from it!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Hee hee, Hannah, you need a longer nose to get WAYYYY into the bottom of that.  😉  Love you sweet girl.

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.

I love it.  I wouldn't share with Barney either.  Keep all that for yourself Hannah.  I am glad you are feeling a little better.  Keep kicking butt
