I just wanted to share these great pics of Otis using his Mighty Power Paw to gnaw on some pretty neat treats.

See, front-leg Tripawds really do get the hang of bones, kongs and more!

Is your Tripawd missing a front leg? Do you have fun photos like this? If so, share them here. Let's show the world that yes, front leggers can continue doing what they love most!

What a handsome dog!smiley

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

Sadie happily uses my legs to hold some of her stuff. I'll be laying there, snoozing, and suddenly she drops a balls between my knees to make sure it doesn't roll away.

I will try to catch Eurydice with her gigantic bone (smaller ones would be reduced to nothing in a blink of an eye before amp) 

She has now developed a good technique where she uses her paw like Otis but makes sure the bone is secured against the window frame so as to have an extra grip on it. 

Big hug from us and cuddles to Wyattheart

Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

Mona hopping up rocks to her hiding place. She's followed by Eli who's going up for a drink and wouldn't dare enter her lair.

And this is Mona using her scratching box. She even leaves the bed at 3:00 am to go downstairs, scratch on the box and then return to bed:

These are all so cute. These dogs have no problem chewing on a bone/toy. I noticed Murphy seemed to have a wide stance with his hind legs similar to the one that Mona had at the start of the stream video. 

So, what would Murphy do if he found the mouse?

Hugs to all your pets!

Oh my gosh, I have no idea!  As far as I know he's never caught one!  lol  But they have caught bunnies, and the 3 dogs try every day to catch the squirrels.  It's funny to watch them work together to corner them - the squirrels get away.  They give them a good run though. big-grin

Had to chime in with the Mighty Power Paw

Paula and Nitro

Nitro 11 1/2  yr old Doberman; right front amp June 2014. Had 6 doses carboplatin, followed by metronomic therapy. Rocked it on 3 legs for over 3 years! My Warrior beat cancer, but couldn't beat old age. He crossed the Bridge peacefully on July 25, 2017, with dignity and on his terms.  Follow his blog entitled "Doberman's journey"

October 15, 2000 to April 8, 2014

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
