You are going to LOVE this story. We sure do! The only thing we don't love is how this awesome Tripawd is shown jumping sky high into the air with one front leg. Please don't ever try this at home folks!

(But as anyone with a Malinois knows, it's pretty difficult to keep them down!)

Neat story!  Really says something about a dog's spirit!

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.
