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

I give her THREE TENS!!!! She's amazing!

Oh Libby, you make us so hoppy to see you having fun in your Float Coat .

Would it be OK Amy if we put your video in a Gear blog post about the Float Coat ? It's so adorable!

Awwwwwwwwwwww! Made my day!! My werk!! And more!!

Beautiful sight! Everyone who is thinking about am amputation and wondering how a dog will do.......well, Jere she is follow...Miss Olympian LIBERTY,! So heartwarming! So I aspiring! Just plain fun to watch!!

Did you ever see the video of Spirit Rusty surfing in his pool? That's another tripawd who didn't let losing a leg stop him from enjoying life to the fullest!

So happy to see LIbbyt doing so well. Love how she swam over to the side of the pool, walked flight up those steps, did the old "water shake off", didn't miss a beat proudly picked that bal right back up!!

Thanks Libby---and your four legged pool mate---for bringing us smiles today. I'm burst I g with pride at the video and I'm not even your momma!!

You know we expect many more videos now. You know we do!!

Keep lapping up life Libby floating down the river of joy!

Libby, you are awesome!  That was an amazing jump!  My boy Max didn't do any swimming in our pool, but we had a small inflatable raft he loved to sit in; then we'd move him around the pool.  What kind of raft do you have?  It looks like a giant piece of styrofoam.  We're always looking for new dog pool toys.  Way to go Libby!!!

Thanks all!  There's no name on the raft and we bought it from a marina.  It's very sturdy. When both dogs are on it that's about 180 lbs and it stays on top of the water. The sides are a little chewed up because Libby has a habit of standing on the stairs and biting the sides when it floats by her.  It makes us chuckle because she looks like a shark attacking..she gives a little growl and then wham! she bites it.big-grin

Yay LIBBY!  Very cute.  My girls are jealous that they don't have a pool to play in too.

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.
