What a great video! Gilda is a wonder dog. She is such an example to people who think that a three legged dog can’t do the things a four legged dog can do. Such joy!!!

Kathi and the Turbotail April Angel

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Oh my DOG Gilda! Look at you just rockin and rollin like nobody’s business! It’s wonderful to see you loving life, share more videos with us OK? More people need to see what Tripawds can do, you are a magnificent example of that.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

I’m with Sally on this one!!! Just tears of joy. So much more welcome than the grief stricken tears of late.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS VIDEO!
