Tripawd Tuesday: Dozer Needs a Home

Today on Tripawd Tuesday we’re showcasing Dozer (aka Jiminy Cricket), a lovable 8-month old German Shepherd pup in need of a forever home. This special Tripawd is currently being cared for by a friend of the Tripawds Nation in San Antonio, Texas. She says:

Dozer is one cool dog.  He is housebroken, crate trained, and does quite well on a leash.  He knows sit, stay and lay down. (The last two are his newest commands, so he’s still working on them sometimes.) He gets along great with other dogs and is also doing well around horses.  I don’t have a cat, but he’s been around cats a couple of times and did well.

He likes to ride in the car, and go on outings. Dozer is a little over 8 months old. Still a pup, he is very laid back (I don’t say that about every pup). Dozer has even been on a local television show prior to Halloween. Other guests included zombies, scary clowns, etc. Dozer was not bothered by them.

He does wonderful in crowds, with groups of children, and meeting new dogs. I had him evaluated by a trainer who said he’d make a great therapy dog. He learns quickly and is eager to please. He’s always looking to me for his cue. He will sit when I feed him and (usually) wait for my cue to eat. He also will sit at the door and wait to be invited in. He learned that so fast – partly from watching my dogs. Dozer comes when called, wanting only to make you happy.  This is one of those dogs – one of those once in a lifetime dogs.

Dozer would be a great dog for a young boy or girl to grow up with – that bestest furry friend we all deserve to have – the one that follows us everywhere, loves us unconditionally and keeps all our secrets. He’ll lay at your feet when you’re quiet or run along as you play in the yard. He’s THAT dog.

Please, share Dozer with your friends. He is a very special dog. Fun-loving, happy, easy keeper, and a willing, quick learner. Oh, and he has promised he will grow into his ears and his feet!”

His rescue agency, Spay Neuter Inject Project of San Antonio (SNIPSA) says:

“Before he made his way into our care he was camped at Animal Care Services with a badly hurt leg that had to be amputated. He is now completely healed and running around like crazy! Don’t let this one get away from you – fill out an application today!”

It’s hard to believe that Dozer is still available for adoption. Please help him find a home by sharing this post with everyone you know with this shortlink:  http://wp.me/pcAJ7-2n0

Thanks!

Tripawd Tuesday: Six Years and Counting, Scout Still Shines

Recently we received this happy update from one of our earliest Tripawds members, Scout.

scout1_0

He is a senior dog and six-year survivor of synovial cell sarcoma cancer and he writes;

“Hi guys, Scout the wonderdog here. You and Jerry helped me with the amputation almost 6 years ago! My mom wrote a blog about us both going through cancer and we thought you and your readers would enjoy it. I am 13 now, and still going strong!”

When you read this post on his Momma Lauren’s blog, you better have some tissues ready.  We know you’ll find his latest news as unforgettable as we did.

“I have come to understand that it’s not about what is gone, but what remains. That is really all it’s about despite how complex we want to make it; that the cancer is gone and your leg doesn’t hurt anymore. We don’t have to be whole to be whole, and sometimes, despite our very human emotional stuff, we are more whole when we get rid of the part of us that hurts. This big beautiful joyful side of us emerges when the pain is gone; one that is even better than before. We don’t have to wait for it to come.

Tripawd Tuesday: Meet Sato Charlie

Today on Tripawd Tuesday we’re going to brighten your day with the story of Sato Charlie, who recently wrote about his heartwarming story of survival and love. If you haven’t seen it, we encourage you to visit his blog today.

A Sato Dog is slang for “Street Dog” in Puerto Rico, where an estimated 100,000 to 250,000 homeless dogs live hard, short lives of neglect and starvation. Thanks to Save a Sato Foundation, Charlie won the lotto and found a loving, forever home in America. He writes:

There are lots of satos just like me, waiting to be saved from the streets or taken from Dead Dog Beach, and ready to bring lots of love to families who can forgive our fear and accept who we are.

Charlie’s story and that of the Sato dogs will warm your heart. Watch this great video and get out the tissues, you’re sure to be touched.

Tripawds 2014 Calendar Project Update

Many thanks to everyone who submitted a photo for the 2014 Tripawds Calendar Project! By Friday’s deadline we received 61 fantastic photo entries from Tripawds members around the world.

But we have a problem:

2013calendarThere’s only 12 months in a year!

Originally, voting to select the 12 best calendar photos was going to occur via the Tripawds Facebook Page. Unfortunately we didn’t think this through before we wrote the rules. We learned this voting process would exclude some Tripawds members who aren’t on Facebook. We don’t think this is fair. We also really want everyone to be included.

So, we hope you don’t mind, but in order to make sure everyone is part of this year-long celebration of Tripawd Power we decided to scrap the voting process altogether.

Instead . . .

Everyone who submitted a photo by last Friday’s deadline WILL get into some kind of 2014 Tripawds calendar!

Whether it’s a month-by-month, a calendar poster or a weekly planner, all photo entries will be included in one version or another.

Tripawds Admin Guy is working hard to lay out the different calendar designs. Yes, you will be able to know which calendar features your own Tripawd hero.

We’re sorry for any confusion, and we hope you think this is a good idea. Since 2006 we’ve struggled with choosing which photos to include in our annual calendar. So far, this seems like the fairest way to make sure everyone who took the time to submit a photo is included. We hope you agree.

Stay tuned for more details about The Tripawds Calendar Project!

Tripawd Tuesday: Achilles Beats the Histiocytic Sarcoma Odds

A diagnosis of histiocytic sarcoma like the one that Bella just got is sure scary, but it doesn’t necessarily mean every dog will go along with the statistics. Oftentimes Tripawds will beat the survival odds, like Barney from Houston Texas, who’s been loving life on three legs over four years after his histiocytic sarcoma diagnosis!

Achilles

Take Achilles for instance. His Momma Robin shared his story for today’s Tripawd Tuesday feature. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

Achilles unfortunately lost his leg to a type of cancer called histiocytic sarcoma. As the proud parents we tried to avoid amputation by treating it with chemo. Good results were showing within the 3 months time but then we started to see it grow much more aggressively in the 4th month. Amputation was the only option and the greatest decision. Now he is back to his old self. Achilles is in 8 months remission.

Congratulations Achilles!

Tripawd Howloween Costume Fun

Do you dress up your Tripawd for Halloween? We think Halloween is an especially fun time of year for pet pawrents. And when you have a Tripawd, there’s lots of opportunities to come up with a creative pet costume for your three-legged dog or cat!

Halloween Pet Safety Tips

Halloween should be fun, so before donning that costume, check with your Tripawd first to make sure that s/he is OK with wearing one and that it doesn’t cause stress. The ASPCA’s Halloween Safety Tips include:

“If you do dress up your pet, make sure the costume isn’t annoying or unsafe. It should not constrict the animal’s movement or hearing, or impede his ability to breathe, bark or meow. Also, be sure to try on costumes before the big night. If your pet seems distressed, allergic or shows abnormal behavior, consider letting him go au naturale or donning a festive bandana.”

When choosing a costume, the ASPCA also suggests ensuring that the costume doesn’t have “small, dangling or easily chewed-off pieces” that can create a choking hazard. Costumes must be properly fitted so there’s no chance your Tripawd will trip, slip or fall while wearing it.

Check out Pet360, which has some great Halloween costumes for pets that fit the ASPCA criteria.

And be sure to share your Tripawd Halloween photos with us in our “Anything Goes” Discussion Forum topic!

Readers, just a head’s up: Tripawds is blogging on behalf of BlogPaws Pet Blogger Network. We have been chosen as a Pet360 Ambassador and in exchange for sharing these tips, we have a chance to win a Pet360 gift card. The views expressed here are solely ours.

Happy 1st Year Ampuversary to Will Beagle (pictured on the left), with his four-legged sister and brother. He celebrated by picking up a chest cold, but the xrays of his chest were fortunately met-free. Thanks to the Tripawds community for your support during this first year.
