Hoppy, hoppy, Happy Hannah! We almost share an amupversary. Murphy’s ten month is tomorrow.

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!

Yay Happy Hannah! What a big milestone. Happy Ampuversary! You’re an inspiration to all the new tripawds! Please, please, please do not tell Libby that your mom lets you eat deer poop, or else she will be very jealous. I think we’re going to stick to the occasional ice cream treats over here. :)
