This Murphy ks a walking miracle.....backwards....forwards....sideways....he's a waling miracle!

To be moving backwards like that, while playing tug-of-war with Gus is quite an accomplishment!!  Hapy Hannah can "move" backwards verh carefully ne hop at a time.  This boy is movng backwards just as fast as ne ks forward!   And Gis acts like a puppy!

 

AThis video needs t be pt "somewhere" fr all future tripawds to see...I'm seriois!   Maybe Jerry could post it on You Tube.   I know I looked on You Tube for videos of three legged dogs when I was faced withnher amp.   Maybe u der so ething like large dog gripawds.

 

Murhy really is an exceptio al do on so many levels!   coud watch videos of him all day!  What's ne gnna' do with the bean patch fading away.....snatch Christms ornaments off the tree?

 

Thanks fr sharng the fn these two are hav

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!

Wow  I don't know how I missed this video, it's one of the best yet! I love that little backward dance he does, he is so agile and light on his feet. Amazing!

Sally I wish I could do that with the video but we can't upload other people's videos to our YouTube channel. We can share other YouTube videos on our channel but they must be uploaded there by the owner first. I would LOVE to have these on our channel, they are amazing.

Well, I guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet and figure out YouTube.  Elk season starts on Tuesday, so I will have some quality time to figure it out.

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

Oh that would be GREAT! It's really not hard at all, I know you can do it. Soooo many folks will benefit from Murphy videos.

Meanwhile Wyatt Ray says "Elk season? YUM!"

Thanks, Sally.  Now if I can just duplicate that feat.  I have no idea if I will VE able to do it again...but as Scarlett O'Hara said, "Tomorrow is another day."

BRAVO! clap

You did it! This is wonderful, more more more!

I even created a new playlist in our Tripawds YouTube Channel, "Tripawds After Hip, Leg and Orthopedic Surgeries," just for Murphy! Can't wait for more.

Thanks so much, Rene. Now I just have to figure out how to work my way around in YouTube.  Is the Tripawds channel just called Tripawds?
