Today we ask everyone to join us in celebrating Trouble's 21 month ampuversary.  I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that she is doing so well.  The diet and supplements must really be doing the trick.  She is getting about very well – hardly stumbles anymore, goes running through the yard at least once a day, and just has a happy glow about her.  I'm giving her minimal doses of Rimadyl if she seems a little 'off'.  She's only had 50 mg twice since she stopped her prednisone and had a 7 day waiting period as the drug left the bloodstream.

Not sure what we will do for a celebration, we may wait until next week and have a big celebration as she (and Comet) turns 12 years old.  I know I've said this a thousand times, but I would never have believed when we started this journey that I'd be writing about a 21 month celebration.  We'd also like to do a big shout out to Nova and Sue, who have been there every step of the way with us.  Happy ampuversary to you guys!

Oh, and our wagon arrived Monday.  I'll have to get it put together this weekend (when I'm off for four days). Hope Miss T likes it.  I think it will be a fun way for her to have longer outings in the neighborhood.  Wish me luck with the introduction 🙂

As always, we humbly hold in our hearts the spirit members of the November 5 – Tika, Cherry, & Max, and all the other heros whose journeys ended far too soon.

As Spirit Gus would say – Paws Up!

Shanna & Spirit Trouble ~ Trouble gained her wings 3/16/2011, a 27 1/2 month cancer survivor, tail wagging. RIP sweetheart, you are my heart and soul.  Run free at Rainbow Bridge.

Happy Happy 21 month ampuversary! Almost 2 years that is amazing!! I am hoping Chloe and I will be able to celebrate such feat!!

I know that you posted a couple comments in my K9 Cancer Walk Tshirt, but I was wondering if I could add Trouble's name to our shirt in order to help celebrate!! We would be honored to walk for her in the event in October.  I also posted a new picture of the front and back if you want to see how it looks now!

Chloe's Mom – of course you may add Trouble's name to your shirt!  We would be honored.

 

Admin –  I tried several times to quote Chloe's mom's post, but it never would open a reply box.  I was able to click on the quote in other posts in this topic and everything worked just fine.  IDKsad
