Love this, thank you for capturing a very special moment and sharing it with us.

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

That is one determined and Happy Pup! Thanks for sharing...

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

I love this video, everyone who is considering whether it is kind to amputate a pets limb should see it.

When the vet told me that the best course of action for my cat was amputation I was so upset, I even considered whether it was right to allow for the amputation and whether it was better to euthanise, what quality of life can a three legged pet have?

My vet advised me to look at videos of three legged pets and I am so glad I did, I am now horrified to read that some people do euthanise pets that would otherwise be healthy just because it would lose a leg.

That dog is just being happy being a dog, my cat is happy just being a cat, they really do not care how many legs they have.

Of course often there are other complications, but having one less leg is actually, by itself, just a number not a meaningful disability.

M. Toplady, author of "Rock of Ages" in "Memorials of the Rev. William Bull of Newport, Pagnel")
