Sally told me that I need to send an update on my Ollie. He has absolutely come leaps and bounds since my last post. Now I just need to figure out how to add a video, since things have changed since the last one I posted. Do I still add the video to my YouTube channel, or is there a new way?

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

Here and Now

Nothing has changed about adding videos. The easiest way is to upload them to Youtube (or Vimeo) first. That way you only have to paste the Share link to embed the movie in your forum post. smiley16

Here goes. My old iPad refused to upload the video, so I had to do a few sneaky moves to get it here. But here it is!

BRILLIANT!    I WAS IN AWE WHEN HE BROUGHT THE DISH….AND THEN….AND THEN….TO CARRY IT BACK TO “TIDY UP”,   OMD!   U.N.B.E.L.I.E.V.A.B.L.E!!!

One of you texhie genuis thi gs xan ppst a kjnd yo someof rhe backstory and GREAT videos of O,like and how he went from an unadoptable  snd unwanted pup, to a very well loved and very intelligent  CHAMPION who mastered every traini g hurdle he was given!!!   Just for starters. I hope the techie person can fi d rhe cideo pf Ollie doing a “recall off leash”

The amount of time that Garry and Kathy put into helping Ollie be all he could be is truly an Olympian effort!!

Soooo glad you posted this!😎😎

Kathy is also Mom to Murphy (and Gus too). Both at the Bridge now.  But Murp is one we refer too often because within six weeks (I think I have the timing right) of amputation, jer needed TPLO on one of his remaining  legs.  The devotion, determination  that Kathy and Garry, and Murphy too, display was Herculean!

MORE!!!!!!!!- PLEASE!!!!!!!😁😁😁😁😁😁

LOVE IT! He is a VERY GOOD DOG indeed!

The bond between the three of you is incredible, it’s so much fun to watch his brain in action. Great job guys! Thanks for sharing.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Uncontrollable Ollie!

Didn’t the rescue or shelter tell you guys that he was too much for you to handle?

You guys have done a wonderful job with him!  I can make Elly wait for a treat but I don’t think that long!

No, the rescue that thought we were too old to adopt their dog didn’t even give us a chance to see him. Ollie is the one who was an unclaimed stray, adopted from the shelter by a family who brought him back after three days because they felt that he was completely uncontrollable. He definitely was a runner, and that is probably how he ended up in the shelter in the first place.

I think that I chose the wrong video of the wait for the treat, though. One of them shows a drool that keeps getting longer and longer. It was really funny. That dog will do just about anything for a bite of cheese.
