No! No! No!  Evelyn, Daisy, Zeffy and Tosca!   What are you doing!!??????? 

 

They are celebrating dummyhead tripawds!   And they'll use you as a guest “filler” so the party looks bigger!  You'll be cast to the side only wearing a stained party hat and licking up the left-overs and crumbs!

 

 I'll send in my stunt double decoy.  They are dummyheads – they'll never figure it out:

What IS that?

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman.

OMD!  I LOVE the picture of Evelyn!  I laughed so hard water came out of my nose!  I'm going to have to go find Finchy's pawty hoodie and get him dressed up so he can come and pawty for fun.

Zeus wants to know if we can stop partying for a little while.  He is tired.

 

 

[Image Can Not Be Found]

Zeus was a Husky mix diagnosed with Osteosarcoma at age 11.  A visible lung met and suspicious spot on his liver meant a poor prognosis-six weeks was our vet's best guess. We decided to fight for our boy and his right front leg was amputated on 12/1/11. We did six rounds of chemo, changed his diet and spoiled him completely rotten. We were blessed with 10 great months after diagnosis. Against the odds, the lung met remained a single met and grew very little over those months. A wonderful furbaby with the most gentle spirit, he fought with a strength that we never imagined he possessed. We have no regrets...

I don't wear costumes.

 

 

Hey Lipless Moosepod –

Still partying?………..The music stopped a long time ago. 

Oh and BTW – Do we have to pay extra for that image?

 

Dum-dum tripawd.

Zues, this pawty lasts all month so please do take some medicinal naps inbetween! Plus, it has been a ruff month for you! I wish we could see your photo, I bet it’s sweet! Don’t listen to big ears, he is jealous…even though we tried to be nice and include him!

and you MBVPB….have you looked at your avatar lately? It looks like your mom might have added some “costume like effects”

In your heart, where I belong.

I just realized that another member is a February Furball, and that would be Cocoa (“sooz”). I hope she knows the party's for her, too.  clap

Today’s the day! Let’s raise a cheer!
Rio’s ampuversary — it’s been a year!
So don your hats and lift your glass,
And keep on kicking cancer’s a$$!

WAAAAY extra cool! Nopawdy told your momma, Rio, but we changed how to count the celebration months so you made it long ago. We are counting lunar months, not those pesky things on the calendar. Twelve lunar months happened before you left to blaze trails for us up ahead, so you did it! Hoppy one-year ampuversary, Woo!

Lead us into the celebration, Rio! We February Furballs bow to your superior knowledge and abilities and ask you to lead us forward into the land of “shaking our booties!” Lead us ahead down the path of awesomeness in dress, costume and how to make it all look so fine. Show us how to rock that tiara, sunglasses and party hat. All hail the Woo!

Love, Dakota

We’ll go and “dance upon the sand” in Rio’s honor today!

Rio, we are thinking of you today and smiling. You are such an awesome warrior princess!
