Awww, Sally...it was a privilege to finally meet in person. You have been such a wonderful cheerleader and encourager and voice of reason on this journey, and a fabulous friend to us from Day 1. 

Lexie is honored that you posted such a cool pic of her -- and all by yourself, too! 

Remember when I wasn't sure that Lexie would feel well enough to make it down? Ha! She clearly knew it was a special occasion. Talk about having a good day!big-grin

I can't thank you and Happy Hannah enough for all you've done for us. And I'm so happy that Merry Myrtle found her way to you.

Big hugs and lots of love,

Deb and Lexie

Soooo awesome!  Happy birthday!!!!!

~ 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!

Lexie says thanks for the birthday wishes Michelle and Angel Sassy, Bonnie and Angel Polly, Rene and Spirit Founder Jerry, Katy and Jackson, and Linda and Tucker!

She says even though it's really just her honorary fake birthday (since she is a rescue and eatimated birthday was a date range) she still thinks it is worth celebrating!
