I have always been so impressed with how well Wyatt poses with product placements, but. . .he does not look happy here.  Maybe because boys are supposed to wear blue?

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

I don't know how I missed this 😐

Absolutely LOVE all the pictures starting with Her Highness Queen Meg I 😝 

Wonderful thread, maybe Eurydice should get a bandana too 🐮 🎀 

Lots of love and cuddles to all 😘😘💕💕🐾🐾

Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

MEG you and Elsie are rocking those scarves!  In fact everyone is.  Well except maybe for Wyatt.  He is NOT amused!  I agree with Christine it's probably the color.  It wasn't his pink day.  Remember Wyatt only real men wear pink!
