OH TANK!! You are such a delightful character!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE reading about you and all the great little personality quirks you have!! 🙂 And you’re good looking on top of that!!

I love all your photos! The close-up picture of your nose and your buddy’s nose is a smile maker!

I think everydsy is Christmas Day for Tank and his pack! They live quite an adventurous life, that’s for sure! Your love for Tank comes shining through!

Sorry to hear that Crystal has crossed over to the other side of life. I know you have a good Guardian Angel watching over you and Tank. She knows she was loved too!

YAY FOR TANK!!! He’s showing everyone starting this journey that living life in three legs is fun! 🙂

Hugs!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

What a sugar pie 💕

Tank has been mine (and Eurydice’s) personal super heroe so far, fast and powerful ⚡️💨💨💨 but I had never seen his sweet, cuddly and tender nature yet.

The video is just adorable, loooove it ❤️

Lots of hugs and cuddles to your gorgeous boy 😘😘😘🐾🐾🐾

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 :-)

Here is tank on a run yesterday I have slimmed him off a few kilos as he was getting big so he has been on a high fat and protein diet where I’m able to feed less and still keep him at maximum health and fitness he got up to 35kgs so I have got him back to 30kgs and hopefully  that will help with putting pressure on his front leg and yes he is still a demanding rat bag

TANK! You never cease ro amaze me with your resilience and zest for life!! You run like the wind, yet you make it look effortless! It makes my heart soar to see you so happy 🙂

Okay, it’s with great hesitation that I ask. What is a “rat bag” and why does Tank wear one?

Tank, thay for showing everyone how well big dogs can do in three legs! 🙂

Hugs!

He carries on like a rat and he is very cheeky it’s a term I use for the kids when they are running rampant. what he has got on though  is a chest plate I have had modified to protect him at the farm when he is out with us as he still thinks he can do what ever he wants to whenever he wants too except swim he will go in the water now he just won’t go past where he can’t stand up anymore he’s been a good boy and he is very gentle with the kids it took ok a while once he was home to fit back in but I can trust him again as he doesn’t care about much except for dinner and dog chews he loves rawhide chews there also good to keep there teeth clean my 14 yo mini foxie cross kelpie still has shiny whites as they get one after breakfast everyday

We could NEVER get bored with videos of Tank!! Seeing him lovving life is a SPECTACULAR sight!!

And besides that, we are learning so much about Tank:-)’s lifestyle as he works the Cane Fields

And I’m pleased to know he doesn’t have a bag of rats around his neck!! 🙂 GREAT job on making a breast plate for protection for him. He’s a very loved and cared for boy! 🙂 His rawhide treats sound yummy!

Would love to see pics of your senior Kelpie mix too! You have quite the pack!

Hugs to all!

This is Thai he is mini foxie x kelpie i call him my first born child I have had him since he was 4weeks old and he is about 13kg so he is a good size he has been a great little mate as well but he has a very demanding attitude worse than tanks, he grew up with just me and  my partner for 4 years before we got my girl crystal she is the black and white hairy dog in the pics who died from breast cancer a couple of years ago.I call him dementia dog as he does some strange things these days and is a cranky old man most of the time but he has earnt his place as family so we just put up with his multiple personalities these days. Don’t be fooled by the last pic either he is growling at me and not smiling the little twerp.

Haha bored with your pack? That’s impossible! It’s always so much fun to watch your doggies 🙂

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

Hi all tank is now just over 6months since his surgery he has finally slowed down a little bit but not much though this is the latest video I took yesterday he has really good mobility on uneven ground he had an infection in his paw at one stage but cured it with antibiotics and iodine soaks and it came good I was worried as his hair was falling out around the infection and it has left a scar on two toes but it seems to be back to normal now any merry Xmas to all on tripawds.

Other than the very slight difference in gait, which I bet only a tripawd owner would see, hard to even tell that there was a tripawd in your video.  Sorry to hear about the infection, but glad it is resolved.  Happy holidays to you as well.

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.
