Roxy 1 year gotcha day

I just want to thank 4 people so very much. Without them this day never would have happened.
On March 9th 2008 a good friend of mine named Amanda came across roxy's profile on petfinder, and she sent it to me. I took a look, at first I was very hesitant because it showed not sure with children. Well I called Boubou, spoke to her for awhile, then 1 day later in a middle of a huge snow storm she met up with me at the shelter.
After about 5 mins, I was in love, she was so sweet, and docile, a perfect match for my crazy pup. AKA Harley.
On the way out I got stuck in a snow bank, ha ha, once again Thank you Boubou who helped me out.
A couple days later I was massaging her, I found some lumps, once again Called Boubou, With her and Suzieqt help we had that biopsy done. Thank you Frenchy for picking her up for me when I was unable to get there before closing.
A couple weeks later it was diagnosed as mammary cancer. Right then and there she was mine, not going anywhere.
It has been 1 full year on the 10th that she has cancer, and is not showing any signs of slowing down.

Thank you all for allowing this wonderful dog to enter my home and never leave. You guys are my heros
Boubou, Frenchy, Suzieqt and last but not least my friend amanda.

Here is the gotcha girlie.
Love ya roxy

This morning she was flooded with lots of love and tears, who knew she would have made it this far and still have lots of butt kicking to do.
Both my guys will be spoiled today, although harley in a much smaller degree because of the IBD

Harley is at a healthy weight at 110 lbs, alot better than his sickly weight of 89 lbs . They are both very healthy. You will see them in the st patty's parade this year walking for the SPCA montreal

HAPPY GOTCHA DAY ROXY!!!!

This made me tear up a little (Happy good tears though) . I think your story is quite touching and it's great that you have her in your life I hope you and her have a great gotcha day. It never ceases (sp?) to amaze me the people on this board coming together to help an animal in need.

wow was she a spoiled girlie. Someone at work brought her in chicken liver and neck, needless to say she devoured that fast.
She says thank you all for helping her come home to stay. She is refusing to leave, and that is fine with me, more than I could have hoped for
