Happy 2 year ampuversary (tomorrow) to my beautiful Lily!! She is doing well-vet and x-rays last week…all clearlaughinglaughinglaughinglaughing

Thanks so much to all of you for always being there for us. This is such a special place. We are so, so fortunate and so thankful. Keep kicking cancer’s butt, my sweet tripawd warrior princess!!

Joan and Lily

I have videos to upload, but I’m having a tough time doing it:(

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.

Hoppy ampuversary, Lily! You are wonderful. Pretty fancy treats you have there, too. Love your quilt!

Kathi and Murphy

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

Lily!!!!  Happy Ampuversary precious girl!  Joan, you know how incredibly special this is to all of us, right?  Please give Sweet Lily a super big hug from me.

Lisa

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...

Hoppy Ampuversary Lily.  I am so glad you are doing so well.  Keep on kicking butt and loved those cookies they looked so good I wanted a bite.  She is a very special gal.

Thanks so much everyone:) I just realized the videos don’t work-don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Any suggestions are welcome.

Lisa, think of you and Zeus often-thanks so much for cheering us on. You too, Michelle–and your beautiful Sassy.

What a special place this is-we’ve gone through a lot together.
