What a wonderful surprise Cometdog got when I got a PM from a new member wanting to join that was “thinking about” adopting a deformed front leg puppy! Well, I got the wonderful news last night that mom has her new furbaby, Zara! (thanks to a surprise by her boyfriend)
So, let's give a big warm tripawd welcome to Zara and her family!
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.
