Are you holding something really yummy on the other side of the camera?  I am feeling the intense brain waves from here.  Feed us.  Feed us.  Feed us.

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

Roast chicken, Christine. However did you guess?! Though actually Elsie has this expression pretty much all the time, especially since I put her on a diet…

Oh my DOG that is SO adorable! It’s like a 2-for-1 workout. Love it!

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

I agree with Sally, these two are incredibly cute. Adorable on their own but they are off the charts when together.

Thanks for showing us a new kind of workout.

Adorable!!! 

Shelby Lynne; Jack Russell/Shiba Inu mix. Proud member of the April Angels of 2014.

October 15, 2000 to April 8, 2014

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
