Daisy and I had ice cream today to celebrate freedom from pain for tripawds everywhere, those still with us and those in spirit. We also went to the Mississippi River (we don’t live too far from it), and she had ball retrieval time. I am amazed by her stamina! I could tell that she was having so much fun! There were ducks in the water, and apparently they are used to humans and dogs, as I would throw the ball near them (accidentally) and neither the ducks nor Daisy flinched at all. I also was able to educate some folks about tripawds, so all in all, a great outing.
Daisy, 12 years young, had left forelimb amp on 5/19/2010 due to osteosarcoma. She left her body behind and joined the other spirit tripawds on 7/16/2010.
So grateful for each day with her!

Sounds like a great outing for sure! Especially when you see your baby doing so well and can educate people about our tripawds all at the same time. Now that makes for a very happy 4th of July!

My sweet golden Mackenzie. She became my angel on Dec 29, 2010 at the age of 8 1/2 although she was always my angel from the time we brought her home. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in Sept 2009 and officially became a tripawd (front leg) on Nov 5, 2009. She will be forever in my heart and now she's running free with all of our other tripawd heroes. I love you Mackenzie!
