Reading about other Tripawds’ adventures is the best way to see how three-legged heroes can do on three legs. Here’s a fun tip for doing just that: make a DIY #TripawdTuesday!
Click the “Random Blogs” link at the top of any Tripawds website page. You’ll meet members from today and long ago. Some blogs are long with lots of details, a few never got started, and some are short but sweet like Takoda’s blog.
We just did our own DIY #TripawdTuesday and had fun reading about Takoda, a beautiful three-legged Husky girldog who overcame adversity many times in her life. She was diagnosed with bone cancer in 2010.
Tripawd Takoda Says “Don’t Worry, I’m Alright.”
“Howl-o … it’s me Takoda writing this entry! So sorry we haven’t posted lately, but I’ve been busy getting back to normal! It’s been 4 months since my ampawtation, and I am doing quite well! Most my fur has grown back too. I’ve been so busy lately …”
Takoda’s people started a fun, short but sweet blog about her life before and after amputation. If you want to see how she did, be sure to hop on over to Takoda’s blog. Then go meet other members by clicking on the “Random Blogs” link again!
Well I’ve been kicked around
Am I alright?
I once had a heart
I was ripped from it
Chewed up then spat out
Like a cherry pit
I once had a soul
It was torn from me
I won’t cry a tear
I will carry me
And if I seem a little hard
It’s just that I’ve been kicked around
I don’t know how I got this far
The way that I’ve been kicked around
–Mark Oliver Everett (eels) “I’ve been kicked around”
