Happy 7 months Eurydice!  Your mom sure knows how to throw a party, I want her to cater my next event.

The food you ate today could feed the pug(gles) for a month big-grin

Keep hopping big girl, we are all rooting for you.

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

How adorable she is.  I’m amazed at the “little” ball she is able to curl herself into!  Congrats on your 7 month milestone – she had a fabulous day!

Hey everybody 💞💞💞

Thank you so much for your lovely replies, it is marvellous to feel so in tune with the tripawd family 🐾🐾💘

Eurydice had a wonderful day and as it happens two more presents came through the mail a few days later.

No idea who sent them but me and miss cow know they were sent by good and loving friends 💕💕💕

I ended up mentioning this in my PET scan post by mistake …

Anyway, there are videos 📽 of course and I’ll publish them at some point. 

Stay happy and well, sending you all much, much love and cuddles to your gorgeous boys and girls 💖💖💖💖🐾🐾🐾🐶🐶🐶🐱🐱🐱
