Awww Murphy 🙂   A special boy.  I had the honor of meeting him.  He was a dog that took everything in stride.  Like a bunch of us just walking in his hotel room saying "hey Murphy".

Levi was diagnosed w/likely osteosarcoma at 7.5 years old in 7/2015 and became a Tripawd on 9/11/15. Loved life until he broke one of his front legs on 2/12/17. As x-rays showed clean bone, we decided to repair the leg. He recovered well, but in June of 2017, started to limp on the same leg. X-Rays showed return of OSA in the front leg. Levi crossed the rainbow bridge on 7/20/17, after over 22 months as a happy Tripawd.

This was taken on his 10th birthday, and is one of my favorites....miss him every second of every day!

Nitro 11 1/2  yr old Doberman; right front amp June 2014. Had 6 doses carboplatin, followed by metronomic therapy. Rocked it on 3 legs for over 3 years! My Warrior beat cancer, but couldn't beat old age. He crossed the Bridge peacefully on July 25, 2017, with dignity and on his terms.  Follow his blog entitled "Doberman's journey"

My Sweet Pea......She was a tripawd for only less than two weeks before we made the decision to set her free on 9/8/17 (see more in our blog: http://sweetpea.....pawds.com/) so I don't have any good pics of her as a tripawd sad

What a beauty. I see why she won your heart. Sweet Pea's spirit shines brightly and will never fade. We are so sad she wasn't with us in the Tripawds Nation for very long but her life will never be forgotten in our family. 

Thanks for adding her photo here. I've also put it in the Tripawds Angels Photo Gallery

Yes, sweet Sweet Pea will ALWAYS be remembered here.  This is such a beautiful picture.  I love the "mug" part of her face....the nlse, the mouth and the little chubby "cheeks" where the whiskers grow:-)  

Thanks for sharing her with us and for placing this ohoto in our forever Angel Galleryheart

Love and hugs

I am so deeply sorry to hear about Sweet Pea. What a beautiful girl and her kitten pics are absolutely adorable. I love the stories you've written about her - especially your husband saying he's never heard you laugh so hard or as much as you did with little Sweet Pea. That's something truly special. Lean on those memories as you mourn and keep sharing them if it helps your heart to heal a little. We love hearing the stories and I, for one, remember how *deeply* I appreciated the the support I received (and just having people share in my great memories) from fellow Tripawd families during the worst parts of my grief.

-Kerry, and Angels Lily, Elliott & Bogart ....and big wet kisses from rowdy pups Auggie and Izzy

Lily the Great Dane (she was actually a lot more than just "Great") joined our family as an ornery puppy on December 20, 2005 and changed our lives forever. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in early May of 2014 and her right rear leg was amputated on May 8, 2014. She sailed through 5 rounds of Carboplatin and 15 weeks of Pallladia. She hopped on 3 legs like she was born to it and continued to fight cancer with grace, valor and an abundant sense of humor...and always a *giant* smile on her face. Lily had two small nodules on her lungs but was brought short by a brain tumor in late December, 2014. Lily earned her wings on December 28, 2014 and we miss her terribly every day. http://lilyt.tripawds.com

Choosing just one photo of Rocky is easy for me. My all-time favorite photo of him.

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.

Okay, I didn't know what I would see when I clicked on here....thinking it would be one where he was laying down with his slimy green tennis ball in fro t of him looking up proudly at the camera!

NOPE!!!  JUST SAW THE BEST PHOTO EVVVVER OF HIM  RIGHT HERE!! 🙂

Look at those eyes!  He's smiling with those eyes !!!  He's looking at you with such adoration and, yes, SWEETNESS!!

Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful photo of Rocky.  Really captures his true essence.

Hugs

This is puppy Chance, obviously. When he still had all fours and hadn't quite grown into those ears yet. This was always one of my favorite photos of him and captures his goofy loving spirit pretty well! I thought of submitting a later pic of when he was a tripawd, but I like the memory of the innocence we both had at the time of this pic.... life was good, no such thing as the "C" word in our vocabulary. I was so lucky to be the Mom to such an adorable pup! heart
