Nope.  Could the setting  be private instead of public?  Then again, I have no clue what I’m  talking about!

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!

Yes I went in and checked and it was marked private. It should now be public.

Wheee! You did it!

How wonderful to see him getting around, he’s doing pretty good! I just had to add it to our “Tripawds Before and After Surgery video collection.”

Be sure to watch for signs of a seroma , which tend to occur in dogs who are moving around too much after surgery, especially front leg amputees. Leashed potty walks can help prevent this icky (but not usually serious) side-effect of amputation.

OOOOOMMMMDDDDDD!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!   This looks more like TWO WEEKS after surgery…..not TWO DAYS!!!!   clapclap   OUTSTANDING!!! And yes, a very inspirational video that offers tons of reassurance  for any newbies!

SLOOOOW AND EASY THOUGH, OKAY?  He’s  still got some hospital  meds in him, so you might see  a little less activity  over the next several days….but  more rest is a good thing during  early recovery.

Way to rock three Sebastian!  

Hugs

Hello! I know it has been a while, we have had a lot going on. Sebastian is doing very well. I am finally seeing the old Sebastian come back 🙂 It has taken a while and there has been a lot of self doubt about whether we did the right thing but it is all gone now. Here is a video of him playing frisbee and tug a war with our other dog.

Worthwhile indeed!!!    It’s  updates like this, videos like this, that keeps us all going  with hope in our hearts!

This was so much fun to watch….yeah…watched it twice just so I could keep smiling for a bit longer!!😁

Anyone with any doubts about Tripawds enjoying  life on three  needs to watch Sebastian enjoying  life to the fullest!   Love seeing how happy his little  buddy is being able to play with Sebastian again😎

YESSS! Oh what a happy boy! He’s got his friends, his toys, happy people, what else does a dog need? Congratulations!

Thank you so much for the pupdate, I’m so happy to see this. Don’t be a stranger and keep us posted in a topic like “Shout Outs” or similar. Give Sebastian a big smooch from us.
