Nice Sally.


But if I was to interpret Hannah’s look she would be saying “really mom? don’t you have something better to do?”

Sally & Happy Hannah,

Thank you for bringing a smile to my face tonight.  I am glad you shared this with us but I don’t think Hannah likes her bandana like that either :)

Always so sweet.  Hannah looks like a babushka!  

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.

Oh Sally & Hannah, you are so sweet! Thank YOU silly! It’s not about us, it’s about every single one of you adding so much to this place.

But thank you, the flowers are nearly as gorgeous as Hannah is in pink.

I was thinking the same thing as Karma. I’m just not sure it’s really her look :-)

Spirit Shooter was a Miniature Australian Shepherd who was diagnosed with a MCT and had a LF amp 1/28/13 at 13-1/2 years old. 

Shooter crossed the Bridge on 8/28/13, his 7 month ampuversary and two weeks from his 14th birthday.

LOVE!  Oh, Happie Hannah.  You get me every time with your beautiful face!

~ 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!
