My buddy Jerry, I want to say how much I miss you but knowing that you are still here with me in my heart and also my mom's makes it so much bearable. Today is a great day for me. My legs are doing better and I am getting ready to go and visit Elvis again in Memphis. My mom needs to go out of town so we get to go RV'ng with my dad. Until next week, I wish all of you the best of days!
We are so happy to hear your legs are doing better. And, Jerry, we are firm believers in the NGU philosophy, too. This short message is to just let everyone know that we think of you every minute of every day and we hope that all are doing well in their recovery. And, if the time does come where life becomes unbearable, we must remember that our animals' spirits do live on forever. All is not lost, we will meet again someday.
In Heaven waiting for me: Drucy, MacKenzie, Gerald, Stevie, Sarah, Samantha, Darren, Alice, Stanley, Terry & Skipper.
Love, Blazer, Kitty Kimber & Mom (Vicki)
Just a note to let you know that you are thought about each and every day and your pawrents, too. Your spirit is strong and around everyone on these forums and on your website. As the leader of the "amputee canine clan", you have gathered us around your campfire of hope and courage, and NGU (never give up) philosophy.
Thanks again for everything...we are keeping you in our hearts forever...
Hi again, Sandra, in case you didn't know this, if you join tripawds.com vs just being a guest, then your posts do not have to wait for moderator approval and they are posted immediately. I just thought that might help and it is free to join.
Sincerely, Vicki, Blazer, & Kitty Kimber
You'll be glad to know that I registered tonight. I would have done it sooner, but I'm not the most techno/computer inclined, so I had to get my boyfriend to walk me through it, but it wasn't so hard after all. Hopefully, that will make your work easier, too...

I have not logged on in some time and am really bummed and shocked to hear about Jerry Dawg. We were looking forward to the pawty we talked about some time ago down here in so cal when you come down here to see your folks for the holidays. Maybe Jim and Rene still want to meet me? I just passed my 4 month ampuversary and and doing well.
We wish you and Jerry all the best...

Thanks Max. I'll make sure my people keep you in mind as they pass back through California. After all, they need to keep on finding new tripawds for their three-legged adventure movies now that I'm no longer around. (Send them an email to let them know where you are.)
Happy 4-month ampuversary!!!

It has been a while since I visited this forum. My deepest sympathy for your loss. May all the memories of wonderful adventures together give you comfort
This site has been so informative and supportive. I honestly don't know what I would have done without it, especially in the initial days surrounding Molly's amputation. Thank you, Jerry and Pawrents, for continuing to be such a helpful and inspirational presence here.

Molly was diagnosed with Synovial Cell Sarcoma (grade 3 with hystiocytic markers) and had her front leg amputated on August 15th 2008. We had a wonderful two years with her until she passed at age 13.5 on August 29th 2010. As far as we could tell, her cancer never returned.
