Three legged cancer dog Caira Sue leaps for ball

When a Tripawd dog gets diagnosed with bone cancer, pawrents immediately think the worst once they learn what to expect. That’s human nature for you.

We dogs, on the other hand, don’t care what bone cancer is, or what it may do to our health eventually. All we care about is having fun with our pack while we still feel good. Yes, there may be a time when the cancer is too much and we must part ways for a while. But right now, in this very moment, we are going to have fun, and you are going to have fun with us, darnit!

Nobody demonstrates that better than our pal, Caira Sue. One look at this girl, and you’d never know that her health is being compromised by lung mets.

Take a look at this interview with her pawrents. Caira Sue’s amazing attitude will help you remember that the time to live, is now.

Hey “Batgirl” Caira Sue! You always bring such a smile to my face.  There is so much life in your sweet face, it's hard to believe you are fighting lung mets.  I loved your video, it was nice to hear your voice and see you in action.

CairaSue is a movie star!!! You bet your sweet bippee she is, and a rock star!

I definitely will be sending the chauffeur around to get a pawtograph, please use red ink, it's my favorite!

I know that Caira Sue is an amazing dog and I am so honored to call her one of my best friends.  I can call her my friend because we have pawtied together on many, many weekends. I've always admired the way Caira Sue handles the poparazzi, she pays them no mind and focuses on the really important stuff, like “Dude, throw the ball already” and “is that really as far as you can throw the ball????”

Congratulations on your first movie, and you are so lucky to have your pawrents there to handle the questions and such.

Your friend from the north bay, Shelby, the P.P.

If you need a supporting actress in your next movie, ring me up and we'll chat.Big Grin
