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

Happy birthday to our very dearest Miss Cow!!

On October 27, 2016, nearly 6 months after amputation, and 18 months since his cancer likely started, we lost Pofi to a recurrence of Soft Tissue Sarcoma in his spine quite suddenly.  His canine sister also succumbed to cancer on March 1, 2019 - we lavished her with our love in the interim, but life was never quite the same without her only real canine friend. Cliff kitty had to leave us, too, suddenly, in August 2019. Lucia kitty grieved all these losses, but helped us welcome two new Lurchers into our home and our lives, Shae and Barley.

Yay, Eurydice is six years old. How wonderful that the Virginia Choir remembered. I heard a bit of tripawd singing in there also. I suspect that Eurydice and Teresa are partying until all hours so we may not see the photos for a few days. 

I told Eli and Mona that it was your birthday:

Eli took off to find some fresh delicacy for you and Mona quickly ran in the house to dress up:

Sorry for the photo – she undresses as quickly as she dresses. It is her party outfit designed especially for Miss Eurydice. Lucky for me, Eli came home for a nap before he goes hunting at midnight.

Miss Cow, I hope you had a very special day with lots of friends and family and ate lots of protein. 

Purrs, cuddles and love.

hearthey everybody heart

Me and Miss Cow are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO overwhelmed by your lovely words and the video, the video !!!!!!!

That was such an incredibly wonderfully fantastically marvellous surprise !!!!

It was the BEST birthday present for Miss Cow EVER heart

We were so sorry we couldn’t attend the tripawds pawty but were there in spirit with all of you and thank you ENORMOUSLY for thinking about us, your pawsitive thoughts did reach us the other side of the ocean alright. 

I can spot Christine (?), Amy and Izzy, Sally, Alison and Shelby, Tina, Renee, Clare, Jim, Paula (?), Teri (?) and Michelle … 

My apologies to the others, I’m sure I know you but haven’t seen pictures before …

Thank you again for being such wonderful, lovely, thoughtful, marvellous friends, the best friends a Cow and her Mom could ever dream of having big-blink

And thank you Eli for your kind offer of a “freshly” picked present, Mom says she is very touched by our kindness … but she declines.(having had cats Mom can imagine what it would be …)

Mona, you look GREAT with your outfit, sadly you couldn’t wear it at my pawty …

And it was the Mother of all Pawties clap

As Kerren suspected, it will take me couple of days to organise the publishing, hard to choose photos and videos … you know me … would I not record and record and record some some ??? 

But it will all be here soon …

Sending all of you a HUGE avalanche of kisses and hugs and zillion slobbery kisses from the birthday girl (who is celebrating her 13th ampuversary Sunday the 4th)
