Being 4-legged is so overrated…

Today marks another milestone in my dog’s life! Three years ago today she had an amputation to cure her of a cancerous tumor (spindle cell sarcoma) and to celebrate I put a little slideshow capturing her active senior life over these years! Even at the ripe age of 12.5 she is still happy and healthy, with the exception of her arthritis starting to kick in a bit. Three cheers for three years as a three legged dog! Go Chloe!

    You almost got those sea gulls, didn’t ya’ girl?! Yeah, that old tennis ball was full of sand—who would want to put that thing in their mouth?

    You are quite the master at knowing how to snuggle in your squishy bed and getting those covers and pillows just right!

    You have wonderful dog buddies by the way.!

    This is such an amzing journey of determination, loyalty, devotion and the healimg power of love! As one of yor previous videos showed, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”!

    The song you selected is perfect! And you and Chloe edited it ad choreographed it so well! Perfect! Just perfect!

    Chloe is an inspiration. I had tears in my eyes as I watched her beautiful self enjoy life and rock on three legs. My girl had her leg amputated three days ago, and we loved to see your girl romping by the water. Happy ampuversary to you!

      Best of luck during the recovery! It can seem like a roller coaster ride during those two weeks, but you both will get through it. Just take it one day at a time 🙂 Thanks for stopping by to watch the video and sharing your story!
