About Ripley's Amputation


Ripley the cancer therapy dog

When my mom was diagnosed with cancer….one of the first things I thought of was how awful it would be never to hold a kitten….or a puppy….or to watch them grow.  So I asked her doctors if it was ok…when I got the go ahead…I brought slowly four little fur angels into our lives.  Ripley is pictured here on her first meeting with my mom.

When my mom passed….one of my fur babies passed ten days after she did.  I was devastated.  Ripley now became my therapy dog.   Below is a video shot after my mom and dogue passed.

Ripley forced me to go outside.  I would take her for two hour walks and she loved it.  It was good for me to see her happy smiling face.  She is an amazing girl…now fighting her own battle with cancer.

And on the third day the love began…

The first day I brought her home she was just a curiosity to her new brothers and sisters.  On the second day all the furballs went into my bedroom and would not come out in protest lol.  And on the third day the love began 🙂
