Sissy summits the M trail near Bozeman, Montana

More: Sissy was made of pure love. She was our faithful companion for nearly 13 years. When she was diagnosed with bone cancer at age 10 we did everything we could to help support her best quality of life for as long as possible. We cooked her a special diet, gave her supplements and medicinal mushrooms to boost her immune system, regular massage, Reiki, acupuncture and chiropractic. Being the miracle dog that she was, she went into remission and lived with us for 3 more glorious years. We would be elated if she could contribute to canine cancer research by gracing the Orvis cover!
