Aww thank you so much, you're so sweet as usual!

We will do our absolute best to make everypawdy proud. Wyatt Ray is getting all sorts of practice "paw-working" as we head to Vegas while I write this. I'm on our tablet right now so I can't embed it into the post but it's SO CUTE, everypawdy should check it out!

If we're offline more than usual the next few days it's cause we're traveling and our Internet is off-and-on. Can you imagine, not every single place we drive through has Internet?! Sheesh!

We're on the way toward Lubbock TX right now and will spend the night at Waylon Jennings City Park in his hometown of Littlefield. I think they have interwebs there.

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

WAHOOOOOO!  You guys rock!

~ Katy & Jackson

ACL tear in right hind leg 12/5/12 and scheduled ACL repair surgery 12/21/12. Pre-op xrays revealed osteosarcoma. Amputation 12/28/12.  Chemo (carboplatin) started Jan 10, 2013 and ended on April 5, for a total of 5 doses. He handled carbo like a champ!  No side effects.  We started metronomic therapy at his third chemo and have been also doing some holistic treatments.  He's a lively, playful 10 year old huskie-boarder collie and a very proud member of the Winter Warriors!  Our love. Our funny little guy!

Yesterday after the truck stop we went to a town and my people made a big deal about it, they kept talking about some guy named Waylon Jennings. I guess he was even more famous than me, there's a town with his name all over it and even the city park is named after him. Wow. Maybe some day I'll get my own park.

Ok here's something funny for you. On our way to Blog Paws, my people decided to stay overnight here:

They thought it was funny that they went past this spot again, it had been a long time, ever since they had Spirit Jerry with them.

We pulled over for the night and I had a blast! They told me "Live it up, there's no forests in Las Vegas!" And boy they are right!
