I can't believe we are at the 11 month mark!  Libby had her right front amp due to osteosarcoma and she has come a long way baby!  Maybe it's me and my husband that's come a long way, ha, because Libby just dealt with it like a champ.  Here she is resting by the stream on a recent walk.

Liberty (Libby) was diagnosed with OSA on 1-22-13.  Right front amputation on 1-31-13. No IV Chemo. Metronomic Therapy started 2-19-13 along with supplements and some home cooking. Lungs clear until 1-06-14.  She's still her happy, hoppy, bossy self.  Living the dog life to the fullest and a proud Winter Warrior. :) RIP my Libby 4-21-03 to 3-19-14

Way to go, Libby! Love that winter scene. What better for a water dog? Snow and a stream.

Kathi and 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!

HOW DID I MISS THIS?????? This wonderful, wonderful ELEVEN month ampuversary!

And I LOVE this "Norman Rockwell" photo.....so serene...and Libby just looks so content to be "one with nature".

Whole lotta' celebrating going on over here! Happy Hannah knows she gets extra ice cream and cake when we celebrate Libby's "versaries" because she'scoming up right behind her (knocking on wood over here) and she gets more goodies! Oh, she did want me to send Libby a steak! She's afraid you won't give Libby her ice cream and cake unless she eats her supper first!

HAPPY AMPUVERSARY SWEET LIBBY!! We LOVE you!!

YEY Libby!!!!  YEY!!!!  Fight on, girlie.  We're SO proud of you!  Your boyfriend, Jackson, is all tail wags for you!

~ Katy & Jackson

ACL tear in right hind leg 12/5/12 and scheduled ACL repair surgery 12/21/12. Pre-op xrays revealed osteosarcoma. Amputation 12/28/12.  Chemo (carboplatin) started Jan 10, 2013 and ended on April 5, for a total of 5 doses. He handled carbo like a champ!  No side effects.  We started metronomic therapy at his third chemo and have been also doing some holistic treatments.  He's a lively, playful 10 year old huskie-boarder collie and a very proud member of the Winter Warriors!  Our love. Our funny little guy!
