Christine..... with Franklin in her heart ♥
Franklin, he was the Happiest Dog on Three Legs! Diagnosed 09/26/2012 with Osteosarcoma, amputated 12/4/2012. Had a wonderful 5 1/2 months painfree until he ran for the Bridge on 5/15/2013. Always in my heart, and always a guardian angel of my pack... You can follow his Tripawd Adventures, before and after, in my blog, Frank'n'Farter!

I can't believe Murphy missed the pawty!!! We were away from the computer for most of the day yesterday. Hoppy, hoppy birthday, Hannah, even if it is a day late.
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!

Happy birthday Hannah! You most definitely do not look your age. Gorgeous!
Karen and Spirit Magnum
Magnum: 30th May 2002 to 5th May 2012. Lost her back left leg to osteosarcoma on 5th Sep 2011. Lung mets found on 20th Mar 2012 but it was bone mets in the hip that ended her brave battle. Magnum's motto - "Dream as if you'll live for ever, live as if you'll die today" (James Dean). Loyal, loving, courageous and spirited to the end. My beloved heart dog, see her memoirs from Rainbow Bridge ...... http://princess.....pawds.com/

Can't believe I missed a birthday! I need something positive to celebrate today.
Tell mom to get you an extra cookie from me tonight I think I will go buy myself some cookies as well!
Sally, I know you asked on my blog for a photo... I am not ignoring your request, but I must be a bad momma because I have zero new photos of Barret on my phone or camera since the last one I posted. I guess its time for a photo shoot tonight!

Hoppy belated birthday, Hannah! I've always loved your sweet face.
Liberty (Libby) was diagnosed with OSA on 1-22-13. Right front amputation on 1-31-13. No IV Chemo. Metronomic Therapy started 2-19-13 along with supplements and some home cooking. Lungs clear until 1-06-14. She's still her happy, hoppy, bossy self. Living the dog life to the fullest and a proud Winter Warrior. :) RIP my Libby 4-21-03 to 3-19-14

Hi Sally and Happy Hannah,
I have a HUGE grin on my face I love your absolute delight, the wardrobe changes just crack me up, the watermelon, Hannah's tail wagging no matter what indignities (the hats) she's going through, your voice just letting her know how very deep your love for her is, and the whole celebration!!!! Thanks so, so much for sharing and bringing huge smiles to all of us!
Happy Birthday, Hannah
Our beautiful Lily was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her front leg on 12/14/11 at age 8 and had amp on 12/16/11. She completed 5 rounds of carbo. She was so brave and kicked cancer's butt daily! She lived life fully for 4 years, 3 months, and 15 days after her amp. My angel is a warrior princess. I miss her so much.
