Hey everybody ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

We are over the moon here ๐ŸŒœ

It is my baby girl’s SIXth month ampuversary today and she is doing remarkably well and is a deliriously happy dawg enjoying life on 3 every second of each day ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿถ

Of course, I am too aware things can change instantly and turn for the worst as very, very sadly we had to mourn so many of our own recently and it broke my heart into pieces every single time ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”

But for now (and hopefully for a long, long, long time) Eurydice is with me and oh boy is she haaaaaaaaappy ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž

We had a big pawty tonight with two and four legged friends and she had the greatest time ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ

I will publish photos and videos as soon as photobucket gets back on line ๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ•น๐Ÿ“ฝ๐Ÿ“ท

Sending you all lots of kisses and cuddles to your fluffies and hoping all of our babies have a wonderful, long life with their loving pawrents ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’—

Hoppy Ampuversary, Eurydice! You are a true Tripawds star. Make sure you get cake!!

Kathi and the Turbotail April Angel…and the Labradork

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

Ourย 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
