Hannah is so cute.  She was so good about taking stuff out of the box, checking it out and then going back to see what else was there.  Addy is so ADD, she would have grabbed the first thing and then taken off with it, forgetting about everything else.  And who were Hannah's friends that were checking it all out too to see if anything was for them?  And Hannah was just willing to share all her stuff with them.  Cute.

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.

Love it! Talk about a polite lady. My guys would have destroyed the box, torn up the paper and then had everything all over the house.

You are wonderful, Hannah!

Kathi and Murphy

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!
