Happy Birthday to both my Jake and Tanner!!! Jake would have been 14 this month and Tanner is turning 3! We have no idea when Roscoe's birthday may have been and 3 was the most popular guess by the vets on his age, so I'm going to stay on the August birthday train and make that Roscoe's birthday too. Happy Birthday Roscoe! My three PERFECT boys! 

It's also Tanner's 2 year ampuversary! Happy Ampuversary Tanner!!!!

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

BEAUTIFUL BLUE EYED JAKE...HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY. BIRTHDAY SWEET BOY!!clap Yeah, 14 in earth terms makes you somewhat " mature". At the Bridge, it just means you stay young forever!! To think, had you decided not to be born, we never would heve met your mom and Tanner and Rosco would never have known what love felt like. THANK YOU!!

TANNNNNNER!! Crazy, adorable, fun loving Tanner, HAPPY BIRTHDAY CUTIE PANTS!!!clap That DELIGHTFUL picture of you says it all! You clearly play full out and love life to the fullest every single day!! You makes us smile seeing you so happh!! And HAPPY TWO YEAR AMPUVERSARY!!!clap NOTHING holds you back, that's for sure!!

ROSCO, THE CUTEST DOG EVER, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR. ADORABLENESS!!clap I bet when you reunited with Jake at the Bridge you two have been pawtying non-stop! On. birthdays though, the pawtying includes presents! I bet the pack at the Bridge gave him a tiny tee shirt that said...I AM THE CUTEST DOG EVER!
