I love the videos.  I couldn't get the 1st one to play it said private.  But looks like she enjoyed her water, ice cream and definitely had an ice cream headache in the last one.  LOL.  Thank you for sharing our Happy Hannah.

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

Woo, Woo!!!!!  What great videos!  She's ready for her closeup, Mr. DeMille!

Hannah, you are definitely the happiest girl on three feet.  I think Wyatt has the right idea.  Hannah's Hot Yoga Body Gym and Ice Cream Pawlor, indeed.  Hmmm...I wonder if those "treats" found amongst the stuffies would make good ice cream toppers.

 

Can we say we knew the two of you back when?

 

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!

Aww, what wonderful videos! Ms. Hannah is indeed one happy girl! 🙂

Joined Club Tripawd April 2014 & Lexie loved life on 3 legs! Advice: Start physical therapy as soon as your vet clears it, especially hydrotherapy if available :-) See Lexie pics here.

That's my kind of work out....eat at least as many calories as you are trying to burn, while you exercise!
That last vid- when Tani does that we call it 'nurking' because she makes a noise that sounds like, well, 'nurk, nurk, nurk...'. She does it to scratch her chin and wipe her nose and eyes.

Yay, I got to see the 1st video.  That is a work out Hannah.  You did such a great job.  I like the idea of the gym named after Happy Hannah.  Keep going girl.
