Yippppeee! Libby I'm so late to the pawty but I want you to know how thrilled I am that you are celebrating this very pawesome milestone! Congratulations gorgeous, you are strong and courageous and a great example of how fantastic life on three legs can be. We love your updates, keep us posted.

P.S. Thanks for starting September off with this great news, we sure needed it.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Oh!  I've been out of town and I'm late to the party, too.  Happy Ampuversary Libby!  Make your pawrents give you treats today from those of us who are late in celebrating with you (see, extra treats that way!!!!).

Zeus was a Husky mix diagnosed with Osteosarcoma at age 11.  A visible lung met and suspicious spot on his liver meant a poor prognosis-six weeks was our vet's best guess. We decided to fight for our boy and his right front leg was amputated on 12/1/11. We did six rounds of chemo, changed his diet and spoiled him completely rotten. We were blessed with 10 great months after diagnosis. Against the odds, the lung met remained a single met and grew very little over those months. A wonderful furbaby with the most gentle spirit, he fought with a strength that we never imagined he possessed. We have no regrets...
