Tripawd Tuesday Introduces Otis the Awesome

Looking for some inspawration? Check out the story of Otis, a new Tripawd. His dad Stevee McDade explains:


Our handsome boy, Otis is a 11 month old yellow lab/mastiff cross.

He was hit by a car on October 30th which resulted in the amputation of his front left leg on November 1, 2013.


Two weeks post surgery and this tough cookie was back to his regular tricks! (playing with only his SQUEKY toys at 6am, attempting to ride shot gun in the car, and taking ME for a walk at the sight of a SKUNK!).

OtisHe is back to galloping around like the goofy puppy that he is and is getting stronger everyday.

He is exactly the same dog today with three legs, as he was with four .


Dogs are such resilient creatures and we could all learn a thing or two from their strength.
