Prayers Please

Lovely Luna with a two-legged friend.

Today our dear friend Luna had a rear leg amputated to stop the spread of that nasty old foe, osteosarcoma.  Although Luna is a nine year-old Great Dane, her mom Shannon keeps her in excellent health and thus made her a good candidate for surgery.  X-rays of her lungs were clear, so it appears the disease was caught in its initial stages.  Kudos to Shannon for catching Luna's limping early, and then aggressively pursuing diagnosis and treatment.  Quick action can make all the difference in the world.

After she spends a couple days with our friend Dr. Mitch and his awesome staff, the jumbo pup will be heading home to be with mom and her four Dane brothers.  Please keep both Luna and Shannon in your prayers as they go through this difficult time, and we will be sure to keep you posted on our newest Tripawd's progress.  In the meantime, we're going to put together a shopping list so they can get on the Red Dog's Anti-Cancer regimen.  WOOF!!
