Well now, she doesn't look a day over five or a pound over 100. And she looks like she's having a blast at six months (lawn mower, be damned). Congrats Sally and Hannah!!!

I am also delighted to see this and congratulate you on how far you've come! As Jerry said, we really did hold our breath around here during those early days. Hannah was a toughie. And Salty Sally? Well, you were great because you had nowhere to go but up! 

I am eternally grateful to whatever sent you here so that you could find the support of so many people who would form Hannah's fan club. Sort of like a Greek chorus, we root for her when confronted by lawn mowers and anything else that needs regulating. 

Hoppy ampuversary to Hannah, and congratulations to you for for getting her here, and for persevering. If there is a Tripawd medal for persistence and perseverance, you have earned it. clap

Way to go, Hannah! And what a good job you are doing on keeping that law mower in check. Now...do you have any hints for me on making the vacuum behave? It always comes out of the closet and chases me outside.

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!

I was away for this grand day.  I missed it!  So I'll extend the celebration a week later: HAPPIEST HOPPIEST 6 MONTH, HAPPY HANNAH!  You're a jewel!  And, heck, listen to those healthy lungs of yours!  Excellent, girl.  Just excellent!

~ 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!
