Super Dooper Trooper Stu earned his wings yesterday he was 12 years old & just shy of his five-year ampuversary 4 years 10 months & one week. (Osteosarcoma) he was a Warrior and a BEACON of HOPE for anypawdy!

We will never forget you, Super Stu. You are loved beyond measure!
We will see you on the other side, buddy! Until then, visit us all, please.
Tripawds nation, ring a bell in Super Stu's honor, please!🛎🛎🛎🔔🔔🔔🫡🫡🫡🦔🦔🦔💔💔💔

Hilly, just cannot stop crying....but this picture has me smiling through  the tears. Such a purrfect memory of a treasured Soul.

I have to admit,I have yet to click on to thevideojist enjoying  the still photo and remembering  all the celebrations we had with him and always with those HedgeHogs ...many of which were sent by you♥️

Thank you♥️

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!

Miss Holly you have brought Paul (and me again!) to tears 😭! Such a beautiful tribute, words can not express our gratitude! But I am going to say THANK YOU from deep within my heart and hope you can understand the depth of our appreciation! 🫂 💝 And as Thally said, the bazillion Hedgies that you have sent Super Stu over the years will be having a Farewell Celebration for Stewie real soon, we KNOW you’ll be there ringing the bells for our brave boy and Saluting him as no other can!!! 🫡🫡🫡🔔🔔🔔💜💚💔

Thally, just wait… when you hit PLAY, you had better have a box of tissues ready 😭 🤧 ❗️ 

Love all of you my friends! Treasures through and through!💝🫂💝

I said 'oh no' out loud when I saw this post. 

Such a warrior and an inspiration to anyone heading out on this journey, I'm so sorry your big man has gone on a head.  I hope the knowledge that Stu is such an inspiration and the memories of the good times will help ease the pain as you transition to a new normal. 

And Super Stu made Hedgies the official toy of Tripawds...at least in my house. 

Karen and Spirit Maggie

p.s.- Holly, what an amazing video!

Hello Karen,

That’s exactly what i said on Saturday… “OH NO!!! Please not now!!!” But sometimes Life hands us a shit show and we just need to make sure we tidy it all up and make sense of it all!

Stewie gave us sooooo many joyous and fulfilling years, more than we were EVER TOLD TO EXPECT!!! We will be eternally grateful for our time with him and for the love he surrounded us with. I know his love will continue to surround us and oh boy will we be having a pawty when we meet again!

Your support along with the Whole of TriPawds community has been a blessing in itself, Stewie will be sooooo chuffed to see HEDGIES 🦔 as the new TriPawd Mascot, ESPECIALLY in your house! Thank you Karen, your words are so very touching.

Lots of Ruv coming from the Remaining Allen Gang

xxxxx

OH! My DOG! What a beautiful tribute Holly! Thank you! We ran out of tissues and I had to grab the TP roll.....

This is an incredible tribute so full of sp_hearticon2sp_hearticon2sp_hearticon2and the happy times in Stu's life. So many hedgies, so little time! And you captured so many wonderful moments. I never realized how much he really smiled! Like that boy sometimes had an ear-to-ear grin on his face smiley4

What a story, what a legend. We miss him so much, and will never, ever forget him.

Here and Now

Okay, I got thrum the beautiful  and touch tribute for Stu....and the tissues were well used. Holly, you were guided by Thewie with every single picture, every single highlight....they we all so him!!!  You did such a heartfelt read thoughtful  synopsis  of so much joy and happiness  he brought tomallmofnus. Not to mention  hope and inspiration. 

The while in oir hearts will fill in slowly with the joy in our hearts for having  the privilege  of knowing such a fine dog Soul and his hoomans he adored...and adored him....and we adore.

Holly, thank you for this incredibly well deserved  gracious tribute to our Hero Super Stu (aka Thuper Thewie)

With love ♥️

And Jim, i am honoured that Super Duper Truper Stu was placed on your banner header! So very proud of my boy! I can’t even tell you! 

I also am honoured to have had Stewie by my side all of these years and know that we have made a little bit of a difference as to how folks will look at big old dawgs who are facing amputation options! TriPawds community has made such a HUGE difference in our lives, we can only hope that Stewies’ amazing life will help too! 

Love you guys!!!!

Thanks, everyone! It was an HONOR to make this video and fuel it with Thuper Thewie love!!! Stu absolutely guided me thru it all! I knew what song to use and did not have to think about anything. He had his paws all over it. We had this in production for Super Stu's 5-year pawty and had to make the unexpected gut wrench edits. 

"That's what memories are for, so we can live furever more, 

A lifetimes worth of memories in our souls .

Beautiful lyrics, beautiful song!!!

Stu's memories will last furever in our souls!

I LOVE Stu's banner, Jim! 

Petra, you are as strong as Stu! STRONG like bull!🐂 ;)YES, I KNOW the depth! 💜💚💝 We will look forward to seeing how you send off the adored hedgies! 

LOVE you all!!

p.s. The boys also have a hedgie toy;)

The tribute video is amazing. So very well done. 

Then I started watching the video of Stu and Wyatt. Somebody in the room with me (his name sounds like Baxter) saw them and got so excited to see them. He was grinning ear to ear (wish I had my phone with me so I could have taken a photo). So even at the Bridge, they're bringing joy to those of us back down here. 

David and Rocky (and Baxter now too!)

Rocky had his right front leg amputated on Valentine's Day 2017 after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma.

He joined the September Saints on September 3, 2017.

He is the toughest, bravest, sweetest and best friend I'll ever know.
