OMG what a great pic! I see that puppy look in his eyes in this pic, and I think about when we met him, and wow, what a difference a few years made! Thanks for giving us hope that Wyatt will be as mature as Max was when we met him.
The book looks funny. But a name change? Huh? Bad editor! No donut!
Thanks for the smiles 🙂

Expect to, and fail will.

Kobe has so many pictures - he had to wear his cone for the whole 2 weeks We tried to have some fun with it - sometimes with mixed results. This first picture makes me laugh but it didn't make Kobe laugh so the bird came right out. The second one was about a week into recovery. Kobe was so glad when that beat up cone got thrown away...and so were the back of our calves...mine had so many bruises 🙂

No pictures of Emily with her cone. She also would run it into the side of the wall trying (sucessfully) to break it. If I didn't take it off her she then switched to running into the back of my legs. It came off quickly.
Debra & Emily, a five year old doberman mix, who was diagnosed with an osteosaecoma. She had a right rear leg amputation on May 19, 2009. On November 10, 2009 she earned her wings and regained her fourth leg.

This is a picture of Tasha just before her surgery, you can see in the picture how she is favoring her leg and sticking her tongue out because she didn't like wearing the cone of shame !
