I was looking through old photos to update Shelby’s blog today and can’t believe I forgot this one!

I think we called it butterfly ballerina princess? Oh my … Shelby was indeed the most patient dog in the world. Miss my baby girl.

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

For Kodas outfit I bought the gator from Petco and as always altered to fit his uniqueness .  With us always being asked what happened to his leg I decided to make a play off the “he chewed it off” response.  

I can’t wait till next year , I bought a hamburger and hotdog costume, on sale from the stores and I will make little bags for condiments and fries.  I have two beagles, and Koda will be the hot dog and will have a small sign on it that says

” Made with 100% pure beagle “

Oh my DOG I love your sense of humor! Nice job!

It reminds me of a design we put in The Tripawds Cafe Press store a while back. You might appreciate it!
