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

It's great seeing these happy, healthy tripawds. I'm happy that Bear's mom was ready to welcome Monkey into her life.

Okay, I think I'm going to have to move to Canada so I can join in on the fun with this WONDERFUL "group of love"! 🙂

And the pictures....OMD! Are you a professional photographer? Really, these are top notch photos! And the dogs...they are all really know how to "work the camera"!

Each mug is so full of happiness! And, just like last time, you were able to get them to all sit collectively for their group photo shoot...pure magic!!

And you got all the humans ro sit still long enough for their group photo...nothing short of a miracle!!

Thank you for sharing the joy! It really gives us all such happiness and huge smiles 🙂

Much love!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

PS..Bear, you did an eexcellent job of picking Monkey for your humans!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!
