Awww thanks everyone for sharing.  I love to see all the sweet pup pictures (and Maybelle).  Athena looks great.  Very much a strong soul.  Dakota was such a sweet face.  Daisy looks to be so happy-go-lucky.  And Maybelle, well, I think she needs to meet Erica's Jack.

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.

I love all the pictures.  Sassy still didn't have all the fur totally back when she passed.  But she was still my sweetheart no matter what.  Thanks everyone for sharing your babies

Heather, that was the first thing I saw! "Hmmm. The tripawd should be on the rug so he doesn't slip, but apparently he doesn't know that." smiley

Shari

From abandoned puppy to Tripawd Warrior Dude, Dakota became one of the 2011 February Furballs due to STS. Our incredibly sweet friend lived with grace and dignity till he impulsively raced over the Bridge on 12-15-12.

Dakota's thoughtful and erudite blog is at http://shari.tr.....pawds.com/
