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 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)
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. Thanks soooo much for bringing us this SPOT ON insightful information! Yeah, we wouldn’t just go google information or rely on facebooger about prosthesis products and fittings for ourselves! This is not a DIY roject! We would go to a respected professional who has all the necessary education to make him an expert!

    With appreciation

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

    • You are very welcome Sally! We are grateful when experts like Jeremy help fill our brains with the information we need to give a great life to our animals.

  2. I’m sorry I had you blubbering, Sally! Thank you for reading Wrigley’s story and knowing he can make you smile! His joy was contagious!

  3. Okay, you warned us to get the tissues out. I didn’t. I figured I could handle a tear here and there. Wrong!
    Going to get my tissue box now and, when I can stop blubbering will come back! Goodness knows there are a gazillion things to smike zbout while reading about Wrigley. Just jzve ro srop crying first!
    Be back……

  4. My pyrenean raphael fomes home yoday hes had amputation, i decided before i found the support group, when vet phoned me the scan results while he was still anaesthetised, great to find suppirt group and success stiries, he will be having chemo, my partners dog had chemo for different cancer it didnt save him but there were no discernable side effects u like human chemo. And bloods are constantly monitored, trwatment is dtopped if causing probs

  5. Wow, is she really that good? This is new to me.

  6. I am so glad she is doing this again. I hope everyone can try to take advantage I know I am going to try. If I can’t that day I will make an appointment with her.



    And we would looooove to see Bella dressed up in her Sunday best Church clothes! 🙂

    Thank yiu for sharing the ADORABLE Bella with js! She’s quite the little Warrior….CUTE Warrior! 🙂

  8. My Lab/Golden has osteosarcoma n we had rear leg amputated a week ago.
    I have noticed so many pics tha show the amputation all the way up ……ours still has a partial stump ?
    Just wondering ,

    • Different surgeons will perform amputation at different locations depending upon their preference, expertise, recommendation, and/or tumor location among other reasons. Please contact your vet with any specific concerns. If there are at least two joints in the limb, your dog may be a good candidate for a prosthetic. Start here for help finding the many Tripawds resources where you will get much more help and feedback than you will on this old post from 2008.
