So I know this site can often bring so much heart ache so I wanted to post a photo of my Grand pup Ruby almost 2 years free from her cancer (see our blogs). She’s dill not hiking 14we’d but then neither or we. But life is good. I wanted to Thank the regiulars onthos site who hear the same bad news over and over and show Ruby’s sweet smile as a sign of hope thank you everyone for all TJ encouragement and prayers in those weeks after. What an awesome group of people.
Lisa, Kacy and Ruby !!!i

What a super wonderful incredible update! Could not be more delighted to hear this, recalling the tough times early on and the worry! Rock on Ruby!!!
On October 27, 2016, nearly 6 months after amputation, and 18 months since his cancer likely started, we lost Pofi to a recurrence of Soft Tissue Sarcoma in his spine quite suddenly. His Daddy and I miss him terribly along with his canine sister, Mia, and two feline siblings, Lucia and Cliff.
