Hoppy ampuversary, Charley! You are an inspiration! I hope you got ice cream, or french fries, or cheese. Cheese! Keep up the good work, handsome boy!

From abandoned puppy to Tripawd Warrior Dude, Dakota became one of the 2011 February Furballs due to STS. Our incredibly sweet friend lived with grace and dignity till he impulsively raced over the Bridge on 12-15-12.

Way to go Charley! Wish I could be there to help you chase that ball.

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!

Thank you everypawdy!!!   That’s my favorite photo too!  Action shots really embody Charley’s spirit (and are so much easier to take since he rarely takes a break outside)!
