The Red Dog Made the Paper!!

Thanks to Shiva's friend Rebecca over at Brown House News for writing a fun and informative article for today's paper...the Red Dog and her people were all in it! Big woofs to Rebecca, as well as to PetSafe Corporation and owner Randy Boyd for walking the walk by investing big bucks in Knoxville dog parks. WOOF!!

My, How Time Does Fly...

Wow. It seems like only yesterday that we were having the wind knocked out of us by the news that Shiva had metastatic bone cancer (osteosarcoma) and we were facing the very real chance of her swift and certain death. We chose amputation, and she chose to beat the odds.

Now we sit here in awe at what has become her marathon of life, a trip into Bonus Time that we'll not soon forget. Two years ago today she sacrificed her leg for the chance at a few more months of survival. Two years ago today we said our first goodbye, but we've been blessed to know that we've yet to say our last.

We have no explanation as to why Shiva's still here, only the certainty that we don't have all the answers...just the faith that her work here is not yet done, and it's our job to share it with you.

Gratitude. Faith. Love. And a whole lot of the Red Dog.

Busy Week

Sorry we haven't posted more, but we've been consumed by several events over the last week or so. If you follow us on YouTube, you know; if not, you might want to start. Click here to see our channel. You can also just watch some of these fun videos:

The first one shares the experience we had the night of that awful storm. Thankfully none of us were hurt. Our hearts go out to those who weren't so lucky.

The second one illustrates the aftermath less than a mile from our house.

Finally, the third should bring a smile to your faces as Kennedy and Kayden meet their new rescue pup Bella!
