Wow, what can I say? Its so weird that since Novak is a tripawds, around me, more are getting amputated. Im glad I can help them, Im not glad they are going through this. Im really sending her positive energy today, her dog has been hospitalized for a week now for a really bad infection to her leg and today, they decided to amputate. Her vet talked to her about this forum(glad they know about it) I also told her to come and look at all the support and information, that it was a life saver for Novak and I. The weirdest part is that tomorrow is Novak first year anniversary since his amputation…already 1 year, wow!

So today, If you can think about Kala, a beautiful border collie of 6 years old that is getting her chx today.

Oh please tell Kala’s people we are thinking of her and sending all our best for a speedy recovery. I’m so sorry she is losing that leg. An infection? Wow. That doesn’t happen too often. I’m sure it’s been a tough ordeal for her family.

That’s neat her vet knows about us. Thank you for encouraging her to come here, we hope she does so we can meet Kala and help out if needed.

And a BIG CONGRATS to Novak! One year? Wow!clap It’s gone by so fast, and you have both come really far! Congrats!

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