Sorry I'm coming in late! Welcome Ginny and family!
You are angels for adopting her! I can't wait to hear of your adventures together!
(And may her ex-parents have nightmares every night for life for being terrible people! That's what I hope for! )
Comet - 1999 to 2011
She departed us unexpectedly January 23, 2011 at the age of 12 1/2.
She was born with a deformed front leg and a tripawd all of her life.

Welcome, Ginny and family! What a beautiful girl! We'll keep all fingers and paws crossed that her recovery goes really well, and that her homecoming is extra sweet!

Holly joined the world of tripawds on 12/29/2009. She has a big little sister, Zuzu, who idolizes Holly and tries to make all of her toys into tripawds in Holly's honor. And she's enjoying life one hop at a time!

Well, we made the trip and picked Ginny up on Saturday. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL GIRL! She is so sweet and loving. Her previous owners may not have been able to deal with her the way she is now, but judging by the way she is so loving and well behaved, they obviously cared a great deal for her. I don't understand how they could have given her up, but I'm sure glad they did or we wouldn't have had the chance to get to love her!
She has slid into our family as smoothly as a hot knife through butter! Our two beagles have taken to her and she seems quite happy to have a couple of canine friends around.
She is such a sweet soul, and has adjusted amazingly well to the loss of her hind leg, that I am going to give her a chance to share that spirit and inspire others. After the Christmas break, I'm going to enrol us in a Therapy Dog training program. I think she'll be an incredible inspiration to kids at our local children's rehabilitation centre and to adults as well.
Welcome home Ginny!
