BRRRRR!!!!! Looking good Happy Hannah but Shelby and I say BRRRRR from the beach in LA where it will be 75 today! 🙂 

Snow looks a lot like 'sand' might be for a Tripawd - a good way to work on the core. Hannah always makes me smile so much! She's such a happy girl!!! Like her mama! big-grin

Can I ask where on the East Coast you are? That is a TON of snow - looks like several inches... hoping you have some hot drinks to keep you warm inside and you don't have to get out and drive in that mess. Be safe! 

Love and hugs to you both!

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

Yay, Hannah! You keep over exerting yourself like that, you will no longer be able to call yourself full figured!! HA!

Our snow here is getting drowned in rain. What hasn't already melted is punking out big time. As long as it doesn't freeze back up into an ice rink, we will live with it. 75* at the beach sounds a bit like heaven right now, Alison.

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!

Twice is just as nice, we love watching Hannah :)

She is just having a ball checking out the mysterious white stuff, how fun!

But please make sure the snow stays there, we don't want any of that out west!

Well Salt. Now you've gone and done it.  I showed Belle this video and she got jealous, so we gave it a try......3 pound white dog + 12 inches of snow.....................................poof! Belle disappeared!

Jill is a 9-year-old tuxedo kitty. She was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in June 2012 on her toe in her right hind leg. Her leg was amputated on 12/12/12 and she completed four rounds of chemo (2 of Carbo, 2 of Doxy) in April 2013.

I know you shot that in slow motion so we wouldn't miss it! :)  Love me some Hannah face!

Liberty (Libby) was diagnosed with OSA on 1-22-13.  Right front amputation on 1-31-13. No IV Chemo. Metronomic Therapy started 2-19-13 along with supplements and some home cooking. Lungs clear until 1-06-14.  She's still her happy, hoppy, bossy self.  Living the dog life to the fullest and a proud Winter Warrior. :) RIP my Libby 4-21-03 to 3-19-14

Oh lovely Miss Happy Hannah....hope you didn't over exert yourself :)

Tucker loves the snow....playing in it, eating it and just laying down in it after a walk.

And by the way....both Tuck and I happen to love the fluffy Miss Happy Hannah just the way she is :)

 

Hugs

SPEAK for yourself! Rosie says Hannah can send some snows our way ANYtime. Maybe it's a Mastiff thing. Rosie would be honored to have a snow day with Hannah.

Sally and Hannah! I didn't realize y'all were right in Charlottesville! We're a bit further south, in the NC foothills, but we head to the Charlottesville area a few times a year! We do the vineyard circuit, and never miss when Dave Matthews plays John Paul Jones arena! We found a great bed and breakfast that let's us bring Grady in Staunton, and then we actually do that RELAX thing :)
