Hi all we Moved house a few weeks ago to a high set house and it has stairs so for the last few weeks tank couldn’t follow the others up or down stairs at all. 

Now this week he is a stair climbing magician he floats up and down them like they weren’t there. I will email a video to jerry and hopefully you will be able to see him in action.

  

Wow what a pack! As promised, here's your Tripawd stair climber:

I’ve lost the the black and white one and brindle and white dog now but has the kelpie still she nearly became tripawd but I was able to act fast and save her leg. Tank is 10 now and still trying to be boss man but he is a little slower. He is still hard headed and doesn’t let his amputated leg get in his way. He falls dusts himself off and keeps going. He lives to hunt still and his favourite thing is to go down the cane farm for a drive.

Jamie, welcome back! It's so nice to hear from you. I'm so sorry about your other dog! How did that accident happen? Just curious.

And it's GREAT to see Tank doing so well! What a life that boy has. He is very lucky to have you for his pack leader!

What's that cone thing he's wearing in the photo? I've never seen one of those. 

How's the snake control business? All good down under?

Everypawdy, here's the pics Jamie would like to share. Aren't they great?!

Ao good to hear from you!  Tank is truly a.Tripawd RockStar!  The way he has handled  life on three all these years, especially  being so active, it quite amazing.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your other two.  I know they had THE best lofe here on earth and could not have been more loved.  Take comfort in that.  The bond you have with all your dogs is so evident  to us all.

Tank really is an inspiration  for anyone  starting this journey.   He shows everyone just how happy a tripawd can be!

Love the photo  of Tank all sprawled out on the couch.   AMD your Kelpi fella's looks all comfy too.

Hugs

He certainly doesn’t give up I worry about him ihe is hard headed and I have to let him go when he wants too he doesn’t care about a leg missing he just goes and goes. The other two died one of them from a twisted stomach and the other one unfortunately drowned in reeds I couldn’t get to her. But tank is my boy and I have had some of the best times of my life with him. That thing on his head is the bin lid the naughty boy.

Yeah it's really tough sometimes to tell a Tripawd they can't or shouldn't do something. I'm really glad he's doing so well despite his hard headedness!

Soooo aorry about your pups who passed, that is heartbreaking. I can't imagine.

A bin lid? Oh like from the trash can?
