Last Friday (8/22) Biscuit's adoption was finalized and I was able to bring him home.  He is such a doll and a perfect fit.  Daisy and everyone who meets him just loves him!  He is quite the little character.  Here's a pic of him and quad-cat Maybelle.

 

Here's a short video of him in the backyard.  I was trying to get him to do his "zoomies" but he wouldn't cooperate.  Hope the video works.  I've never tried to post videos before.

 

Hop on!

Oh he's soooooo cute!!! Congrats!!!

 

I know ... I could never get Shelby (or Jasper now) to do the 'zoomies' when the camera was rolling!

Congrats on your great new addition!

Hugs!

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

Congratulations to all of you, but especially to Biscuit! He has fallen into a bed of roses. Such a great life he will have. Daisy will be so happy to have a "partner in crime".

Kathi and Murphy

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!

Marla,

How awesome, I forgot he was a Tripawd.  He was so fast you couldnt even tell till I saw him standing there.  Loved the pictures & video.  I LOVE love his name.  It fits him.  He is so cute

 

Hugs

Congratulations, Marla and pack. What a love bug!

Love his name, too. Now we need some pics of both of them together. 🙂
