I added a few things…The pic isn’t very good….at the top of the M&M it says “I love you” (actually “I ♡ you”) I really wish everyone could see the love, the joy, the hope and yeah, the heartbreak sprinkled with the stardust of gratitude and celebration of lives well love….and lives continued to be well lived!

HAPPY HANNAH, with gratitude beyond measure, I sprinkled your ribbons with invisible sparkling stardust to celebrate your brilliantly shining leternal light!i!superstar

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

Rio, Troubl..all memorialized here…..okay….gotta stop now….too many tears before heading to work!

CAN NOT wait to see what n you come M up with Shelby!

Sending love and appreciation right back ‘atcha’

Thanks for posting all the pictures and video Sally. Hannah’s ribbon is beautiful!

It looks like the leash is getting pretty full, I’ve been trying to decide how to extend it.  I was thinking of making another leash the same length and then using something like a collar to hook the now two leashes together.  If we need to add more leashes then it will eventually look like spokes on a wheel.  Or I could just make another length and hook them end to end… anyone have any ideas?

Sally, thank you for posting these close-up pics of the Leash…….these ribbons are heartfelt beyond words, and Happy Hannah’s is so beautiful ……your words about the love you shared with her make me cry……and I agree with everything Alison said to you.

Karen, I think either idea you have with extending the leash are both great ideas.

Love, Bonnie & Angel Polly

Hey everyone, those ribbons are fabulous!

Yes Sally, I got the ribbon for Mona (red is her favourite colour). She’s misplaced it… I hope to find it soon, glitter it up and send it in. Our kitties need to be represented!

Yes Sally. I’ve been making one for Smore, but it hasn’t come out the way I wanted so I’m going to start over.

Smore is my tripawd kitty who adopted me one summer evening. She had an injury to her front left leg and had to have her leg removed July 17th. She was only 3 or 4 months old at the time. Now she moves faster than some four legged cats!
