Way to go, Calpurnia! Your video is amazing!

Happy Birthday! We hope you get lots of treats!

Holly joined the world of tripawds on 12/29/2009. She has a big little sister, Zuzu, who idolizes Holly and tries to make all of her toys into tripawds in Holly's honor. And she's enjoying life one hop at a time!
