This little Rosco truly has to be the cutest tripawd ever!

All the dogs were HUGE at the lawty compared to Rosco, and their size didn't faze him one bit! This dog KNEW he owned the "cuteness category" and no big dog could hold a candle to his "adoravleness". I think I saw a little smug grin flash across his mug as we all went ga-ga over him!

Adorable Rosco!:

ROSCO. Happy and soooo CUTE!!:

Be sure and catch Rosco as he looks up at the camera at the end of the video (he's waiting for me to give him his cookie)....look at that face!!! OMD!!! CUTE! CUTE!!!! CUTE!!!! telling us they're kick:

Makes my heart do a very sweet thump . . . heavy sigh . . .

Harmony became a Tripawd on 10/21/14 (MCT). She left us way too soon on 11/1/14.

You're right Sally, Roscoe is adorable. And Merry Myrtle has a beautiful colour! Looks like it was fun for everyone.

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
