OMC!!!!!! This is just superb. He really doesn’t need four legs, does he! Wow. Love his expression when he swipes for it. Like ‘This time I’m having you, this time I AM!’ Love the music too. Poppet Purrkins, how we love you!

Happy to provide some smiles! Its too fun isnt!

Thought everyone could use a smile and see how the quality of life can be on 3 legs!

Fastest kitty on three legs, EVER! Love it!

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

He looks so great, you can’t really tell he is a tri-kitty from the over head shot.

I’m pretty sure that toy would scare Elly my brave, brave puggle way-confused

p.s. it took me a second but Clare: ‘OMC’ big-grin

Tri-pug Maggie survived a 4.5 year mast cell cancer battle only to be lost to oral melanoma.

If you didn’t know he only had 3 legs, you probably wouldn’t even notice!

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

Purrkins you are sooooo amazingly good at going after that butterfly 😸 

Me and Eurydice agree, who needs 3 legs anyway ?

Your video is just delightful, you made our day 👍🏼📽👏🏽

Keep playing away Purrkins and sharing it all with us 🎏💨

Biiig tummy rubs and kisses flying your way and Mom’s 😘😘😘😘💞😻

Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)
