I’ve been thinking about some of the best lessons that I’ve learned from my wise and learned Rio over the years, and I wanted to share. Feel free to add your own.

1. Live in the moment.
2. You can always find something to be happy about.
3. Get outside and play!
4. If you need help, ask for it.
5. Naps rock!
6. Keep it simple, stupid. (Why make things more complicated than they really are?)
7. Don’t worry, be happy.
8. It’s always about the cookies!
9. Get over it! (Staying mad or holding a grudge doesn’t do anybody any good.)
10. Feeling guilty is way over-rated!

Oh, and another one!

 

#13  Don't let a Tripawd Gurl kiss you or you'll turn into a frog with warts!

 

There's no “Bwwhahahhahaha” to that one because that isn't funny!  It's meant to warn the Monkeydogs!

11. Having a Monkeybutt dog around to rub their nose in all the extra treats/attention you get as a Tripawd is priceless.

12. Just hanging out together is a pretty damn good day. There doesn't have to be An Event to make it a Good Day.

 

(I'm picking up w/ #11 cuz those other ones added by MBBVP are to-be-ignored.)

Abby

Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman. Tripawds blog, and a more detailed blog here. Please also check out my novel, What the Dog Ate. Now also in paperback! Purchase it at Amazon via Tripawds and help support Tripawds!

I should have said “feel free to add your own if you’re a Tripawd.” No Monkeybutts allowed — unless we can kiss them!!!

Another one

#I can still do anything on three legs.

This includes: getting on furniture to nap, chasing birds, tearing down a screen door, unbuckling the seat belt and climbing into the front seat of the car… Nope, three legs doesn't slow them down a bit.

-Chloe's mom

Chloe became a rear amp tripawd on 7-29-10. Another tumor was removed on front leg 2-20-14. Found 3rd tumor on neck 2-2015, but she's still kicking cancer's butt at age 14. Chloe's blog

#15  (ignoring the monkeybutt..)  Never stop learning. 

Sammy learned how to work mommy by playing sick.   Lots of pets and treats!

 

#16  if you think you can you can, if you think you can't, mommy will do it for you 🙂 just stay positive.

#17 H.O.D. (Hugs On Demand)

#18 K.O.D.  (you can guess this one – Monkeybutts get them whether they want them or not)

#19 C.O.D.  (cookies again 🙂
