Has it really been a YEAR?
Let me start by saying that it has been faaaar toooo long since I updated Bo's blog. Since Bo died a year ago, I have become sort of a silent member. I apologize for that. Please know that I check the Tripawds forums every day. I've read every story (More)
Bo's Conch Shell
Before Bo got sick, he was a wild, crazy, silly boy. I want to start writing about some of the fun, happy memories we've had with Bo. Quite a while ago, I told Admin about Bo's conch shell and I promised to post pictures. Well, I'm finally getting (More)
Where we are...
It's been about 2.5 months since Bo earned his wings. That is almost as long as we had with him post-amp. I don't know where the time this year has gone. I think my brain is still stuck in April when Bo first started limping.  But, here we are in No (More)
A Dog's Purpose
After all that has happened with Bo, it has been made so clear to me that his life had an amazing purpose...to help me. I think that most animals are sent to us for a reason. They have a mission to complete, whether they know it or not, and when it i (More)
Gotcha!!
Shhhh....Monkeycat Belle here....Mom doesn't know that I am on the computer. Mom is walking around the house saying, "Oh no! I can't believe I didn't know about Barney and the Monkeybutt's!" Well, little does Mom know that Barney and I are actuall (More)

Beautiful picture of Chili Dawg! Snow is one thing Bo never got to see...I'm sure he would have loved it. I'm glad Chili Dawg sent you some snow. :-) (More)
Oh Jenna, I am a total weepy mess now! What a beautiful tribute to Chili Dawg. I can't believe it's been 4 months already. We're thinking of you all. We're hoping that 2012 will bring lots more smiles and happy memories. (More)
Charon, I am just so sad to hear this news. I wish I had something more comforting to say, as your words were such a comfort when I lost Bo. Gayle's story touched us when we first joined tripawds; she was a true Tripawd hero. Take time to grieve and hold closely all of the beautiful memories you had with her. (More)
Thanks, everyone. I'm lucky to be a part of the tripawds family. I know that when I need to get something off my chest I can come here for support. I know Bo is playing his tail off with the other Tripawd heroes! (More)

  1. My two-year-old Rottweiler was hit by a truck and a schedule for amputation this morning of left front front paw to shoulder. She’s a super active dog and loves to swim I’ve never had a tripod I’m not sure how to care for Or where to draw the line on activity

    • Cyndy we are so sorry about your pup and hope that she has a speedy recovery. She definitely has an advantage as a Tripawd because she’s already fit. We encourage you to find a certified rehab therapist who can guide you in her recovery and creating a happy, active life on three legs. The best part is the Tripawds Foundation may even pay for her first rehab therapy visit! Also, please drop by the Tripawds Discussion Forums to meet other members, get tips and share her story. Our e-book, Loving Life on Three Legs, is also a good reference for learning about how to keep her safe, fit and hoppy. Best wishes to you both. Keep in touch!

    • Cyndy, i’m so sorry to hear about the accident first and foremost. Thankful you still have your fur baby. Romeo is 11 days post op from his amputation, front left. I won’t lie, it’s tough but if your baby is anything like a canine, you won’t be able to hold them back. If any fur baby was gonna give up, I would have bet it would have been mine. But he didnt, it is difficult, but VERY doable. Be the dog, they don’t mourn, they just get up, wobbly at first, and go on. You learn new stuff day to day. Keep connected to this blog, it truly helos. Prayers for you all, keep us posted.

    My dog Sophie, 4yo, had her front leg amputated after a lawnmower accident. That was about 10 months ago. She still has phantom pain occasionally. But my main question is, whenever she’s standing, she’s almost constantly pulling the stump upward with her shoulder muscles (like a person would shrug with one shoulder). It seems to ache or strain in some way with no leg there to support the shoulder. Any ideas would be appreciated. I have not tried bandaging (like with an Ace) to support the stump or anything…

  3. Absolutely wonderful tale!! I love how Sadie “picked” you so many years ago. Dragging your mattress to the floor and hand-feeding her show just how much you love her! My 14 1/2 year old border collie has just been diagnosed with leukemia and will only be with me probably another month or so. I am filling his last days with hamburger patties, chicken, his favorite walks, dog friends and human friends both. Your story gave me inspiration – thanks so much for sharing it! Best of luck to you and Sadie. 🙂

  4. Update on Hazel:
    A couple of weeks ago, Hazel’s leg began to get much larger and developed a second lump. They told us that it is normal for the leg to get bigger as the bone is just trying to heal, but we suspected the latest growth was not good (she also started to favor the leg). We took her back to the California Veterinary Specialists Angel Care Cancer Center for evaluation. Unfortunately, it looks like the cancer is back at full force. Growing in the leg and also they found small growths in her lungs. After discussions with the staff, we agreed to do a second round of palliative radiation (traditional, not cyber knife) to try and buy her some more time without pain in the leg. They told us that most likely the lung growths would become a problem before the leg pain becomes too great. She is now on full pain med regiment. The radiation will take a few weeks to provide its pain relief. She is in good spirits, enjoying her normal day to day activities, but still favoring the leg a bit. We are hoping for more relief from the radiation in the next week or so. We hope for a month or two more of good quality time together. She will be 10 in August, which is not too bad for a Dane. Hazel and Proton send love and healing to everyone!

    • Thank you for filling us in Joel. We are sad to hear that she is facing this latest hurdle but really happy to hear she’s still in good spirits. All of us send lots of love and strength for many good days in Hazel’s future. Fight on Hazel! xoxo
