I was just reading your story. Ellie was a very special girl. She was fortunate to have such good daddy in you.
I so sorry for your loss….
My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019. With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer. I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud! He will live forever in my Heart!

Agree with Jemma (badger mom) that Ellie is still touching lives and making a difference. That’s such a great legacy for a great dog…..a great dog who was so well loved every moment of every day.💖
I also went back and read Ellie’s journey and was amazed at all the hurdles she faced and handled them like an Olympian Champ! The devotion and dedication she had from you was a beautiful.
