OMD!! I CANNOT believe this is their “THANK YOU” card!! Barney, I know this is yor idea!! Being the opportunistic dinosaur that you are…trying to milk this for all it’s worth!! You ungrateful, ill-mannerd stinky butt thing!!
Happy Hannah DID do the “selfie” mug shot though! She wants everyone to get a kiss from her because she loves you so. Just ooch up to the screen, puker up for a “slime free” smooch of gratitude from Happy Hannah’s lips straight to yours!!
Happy Hannah and I are great! GREAT because she’s here with me and, all things considered, her QUALITY is still good and that’s GREAT!! Gonna post some “meds” questions in the “Ask the Vet” section later and will give a few more specifics in some of the changes I’ve noticed and see what I can do to slow this part of the journey down some. I will only do what’s best for her!!!!!! But make no mistake aboutit, our journey ks still full of loving’ spoiling and non-stop tails wags…sometimes even when she sleeps! I love that because I know she’s havng wnderful dreams and nothing but hapoy times!!
Now go smooch the mug!!
Love to all!!
Saly and HAPPY, HAPPY HAPPY HANNAH

Our beautiful Lily was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her front leg on 12/14/11 at age 8 and had amp on 12/16/11. She completed 5 rounds of carbo. She was so brave and kicked cancer's butt daily! She lived life fully for 4 years, 3 months, and 15 days after her amp. My angel is a warrior princess. I miss her so much.

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
