No new members, not because this isn’t a great community, but because no dogs and cats need amputation, especially not due to cancer diagnoses. And all of our current Tripawd family, tri’s, quads or human, are healthy and happy through the holiday season and we will our blogs and forum threads with funny stories and happy photos of our pets at play.

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!

Christine…you are sooooo special. I echo your wish and I am so thankful for you.
I need to find the photo of My Sweet Ted in the back of my 1982 convertible Fiat Spider from October…. he was a happy camper! Such Joy he shared all over Charlottesville, VA – seriously, people were taking pics of him behind me, next to me, in front of me… More to come.
