Tripawd Tuesday Celebrates Superdog Hunter

Today’s Tripawd Tuesday features the amazing story of Hunter the Superdog!

Hunter is a rear leg amputee and bone cancer Tripawd hero. If you need a hearty dose of inspawration, read how he’s beaten the osteosarcoma odds for over a year and counting! Here’s his story as told by his pack:

“Hunter is our HERO!

He has been in our hearts and lives since we brought him home at 8 weeks of age and he could walk under the kitchen chairs!

In a few years he became a phenomenal pheasant hunting machine. Everyone who hunted with him said he was simply the best.

In May, 2012, at the age of 8, Hunter went through a right rear leg amputation and 6 rounds of chemotherapy because of osteosarcoma. But, every step of the way Hunter exceeded our expectations and the expectations of his doctors. He is the definition of a Happy Lab!

Hunter continues to bring smiles to everyone who meets him, especially children. Everyone knows him as “Super Dog” and the clinics are happy to talk about him whenever I call.

Hunter wears a Super Dog bandanna when he goes places and has even been known to attend chemotherapy sessions in his Super Dog costume!

Hunter is still with us, even after his December, 2012 lung metastasis diagnosis. Once again, he is exceeding the medial expectations. We love him very much and he has shown us how to be strong at the hardest time in our lives.

We plan on celebrating his 10th birthday this July 27th!
