I think I may have mentioned this before…. but this is the dog they said would never be able to manage on three legs.

Enjoy!

Such a crafty Meg!  If Mum gets tired of throwing the ball Meg finds a way to play with it on her own!  Glad you didn’t bury it and forget where it was Meg 😳  That would’ve been too sad!  I’m really impressed with your core strength there girl!  The Megastar is in tiptop shape!  And the self satisfied look on your face is priceless!  Such fun!!

Thanks, Linda. Your comments are always so sweet and never fail to make me smile smiley We do appreciate them! 

Yup, the Megsta has abs of steel. That’s really why I posted the vid. I mean, not to show off her abs, lol, but because you can really see core strength at work. If you look closely, you can actually see her tummy muscles contracting. Wish I could say the same for mine, but there we are… what-ever

BRAVO! I just shared this around social media, she is a riot! laughingI love the way she shakes the ball (maybe to get sand off it?), drops it on the sand again, and repeats the procedure. Adorable!

Her front leg is so powerful looking and the rest of her body looks fantastically in shape. What an inspiration!

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

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

OH GOSH!!! Face hurts from smiling so much!!! 🙂 Such a. FUN, FUN, FUN day at the beach with MEGASTAR!! 🙂

This is what the BLISS OF BEING DOG looks like! Meg is sooooo happy! She truly is experiencing pure bliss and pure joy as sne frolics in the sand with her ball.

And yes Linda, I noticed that “self-satisfied” smug look on the mug too! It was priceless!! 🙂 I love how she would get mouthfuls of sand, no problem…. how she would get sand all over her face, no problem……how she would rub her face allmover the sand, no problem. But when he came to holding her ball in her mouth, she wanted no part of the sand and tried to shake it off!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 And she appeared to be pretty successful in her endeavour!! 🙂

ToTo think how so many things were …..er…..”mishandled” by specialty Vets. To think that Vets had written her off. To think if you had listened to them…too awful to even think about.

AND LOOK AT MEGASTAR NOW!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 It really does bring happy tears to my eyes seeing how blissfully happy she is 🙂 🙂 🙂 I’m gonna go watch again right now because it makes me soooo happy!! 🙂

Lots of love always! 🙂

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

PS. Meg, I hate to admit it, but I really do think you are able to dig with such vigor…not because of “core strength”…but because you don’t have the weight of yiur bloomers hampering you! 🙂

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!

Ssssshhhhhh… MEGASTAR is auditioning for WORLD DOMINATION! It is just sooooooo obvious….sigh, once again….it is not THE BALL which interests THE RULER OF ALL SHE SEES…No, no, no…rather MEGASTAR is digging for the stash of the second chapter of the The Panama Papers? Or The Secret Minutes of The Russian Meetings ( God Save America MEGASTAR;) Or the formula for Coke? Maybe The Holy Grail ( costarring the Holy Handgrenade Ruby Roo?!?) Because while all of us are ” keep (ing) (y)our eye(s) on the ball”, MEGASTAR is planning on WORLD DOMINATION. Folks, you read it here first…be prepared. Genuflect and bring dog bones and more trips to the beaches ( ahem, Clare…) It is y/our only hope. And don’t forget Elsie Pie is in on the plan as well…Special SECRET AGENT Elsie Pie…WORLD DOMINATION BY MEGASTAR!!!! Buwhahahahaaaaaaa!
