So we took Tate and Sam to the beach, and Tate likes to chase whatever ball or toy is being thrown in the water no matter who throws it. So he ran and swam and grabbed someone's ball. And that dog's mom chastised him, "You got beat out by a three legged dog!"
YOU GOT THAT RIGHT, SWEETHEART!

Totally awesome. 🙂 I hope that I have someone tells me something like that about our old man Capone! He seems to have one speed the last couple of days when outside, turbo speed. I'm still keeping him on a leash to restrict his movement a bit and assist if needed since we're only 12 days post left front leg amputation due to OSA. Tonight after getting back from a walk with my husband... Capone was in his gated off area in our living room standing up with a toy in his mouth wagging his tail like crazy. I then took him outside and he insisted on going walking (hopping) up our short driveway to the sidewalk. I guess he wanted to eat some grass from another area. These are the moments that are keeping me going. He is so pooped when he comes inside and will require a few hour power nap from that adventure. I'm just hoping that I can get him up again before I go to bed around midnight. I really don't want to set my alarm for the crack of dawn to get up for a potty break. However, I'll do anything for my sweet angel.
