Hi Everyone,

So sorry that we’ve been gone from the forum for a while.  I’ve been buried in work and this year we were blessed to have my son in law home from Iraq so there were lots of family events.  I am quoting another big design/coding job which may keep me busy for the next couple of months but for now there is a momentary lull.

Radar is doing wonderful.  He is now almost 5 months post amp and has a joy for life that still astounds me.  All the pups got new stuffies for xmas and he has taken to gathering them up each day and plays fetch with himself with a small stuffed ball that now goes everywhere that he does.  Healthwise, other than the missing leg you would never know anything is wrong with him.  He is a joy and inspiration. 

We hope that all of you had great holidays – that god smiled on you and your pups that you were able to take joy in the small things and everyday our dogs get to spend with us.  

Wishing you all the happiest and healthiest New Year to you and your tripawds.

Hiya Connie & Radar!

Gosh, it is so good to hear from you and to hear that your son is home from Iraq and that Radar is doing really, really well.  You do sound like you have been very busy, but it sure is good to know everything is great on your end of things.

Happy Holiday!
