Ohhhhhh!  How nice of you!!!  I am getting emotional ...again!! It seems that I can not stop crying since last July. And most of the time, like today, they are good tears.  I still can not believe how wonderful and supportive this community is.   You all taught me how to deal with hard days, good days, how to enjoy every moment...and I still have a lot to learn.  Every single tripawd friend has been an inspiration during these last 6 months.  Thank you so much to all of you!

As for Oslo, he will get a party in the snow this afternoon, that's for sure.  I will make sure to get some pictures to share with you.

Happy 6 month!  I am looking forward to seeing the snow photos.  Did Oslo ever have his 6th chemo treatment?

Oh, Oslo, you look so contented in your video. Who needs a fancy snowcone, when there's just plain snow to eat? Ahhhh. Way to go on your 6 month ampuversary, buddy!

Gerry has been a tripawd since 12/16/2009.

He was a shelter dog with a mysterious past and an irrepairable knee injury.
