I see little miss Shelby there in the collage of photos!!! I’ll have to dig up her old Halloween photos for the contest. Always fun to revisit those! 

And I’ll see about little Jasper Lily – her head is so tiny and ears so big, hats and stuff don’t fit well on her. 🙂 

Shelby Lynne; Jack Russell/Shiba Inu mix. Proud member of the April Angels of 2014.

October 15, 2000 to April 8, 2014

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

And Team Sassy starts the season off with a bang! An illusive Ladybug, a lip smackin’ lion, a Bat who is handsome and a dog who is a kitty sliding down the sliding board (Tiger is a kitty, right?)! You have quite a creative pack Michelle!

They are all sooo precious in their costumes! I cannot imagine the effort it took to, not only get them in their costumes, but to not try and rip them to shreds! Bosch is an old ha d at this now. But to keep Snickers and Jazz still long enough to out these on and then “pose” for pictures……you have a lot of patience!!!

How did you get Snickers on the sliding board like that? You must have greased it with steak juice!

Can’t wait to see more!!!

Love!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Okay…these are NOT for the contest obviously! Just a blast from the past! As you can tell, Happy Hannah was NOT “happy” being Minnie Mouse! That expression says it all!!

And then Merry Myrtle as Raggedy Ann for the 2014 entry last year……again…NOT for this year’s contest! I just have a real hard time passing up ANY opportunity to post pictures!!!
