So happy that my baby has made it so far after her osteosarcoma diagnosis and hopefully she can give hope to the others.

What a happy accomplishment!

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!

Franklin, he was the Happiest Dog on Three Legs! Diagnosed 09/26/2012 with Osteosarcoma, amputated 12/4/2012.  Had a wonderful 5 1/2 months painfree until he ran for the Bridge on 5/15/2013.  Always in my heart, and always a guardian angel of my pack...   You can follow his Tripawd Adventures, before and after, in my blog, Frank'n'Farter!

OH my GOSH it’s great to hear from you and know that she is doing so well! Ami has beaten this thing, she is a survivor and she is our INSPAWRATION!

Folks I encourage you go to back and look at Nindri’s posts (just click on her member name and select “See Posts Member has Started). It’s so cool to see how far Ami and her people have come, beating osteosarcoma and four years later, mammary tumors too. WOW! To know that this is possible is the best gift you could give us here, EVER!

Ami can I have some of that magic of yours?

Thank you everyone. She has also beaten gdv and pyometra since she became tripawed. She bounced back every time like nothing had happened. She is showing her age now though, she has arthritis on her back and has bouts of pancreatitis. Mammary tumors are still there, we couldn’t remove all of them at the time and we don’t feel that she can go through big surgeries anymore. But she still plays and runs to the door when we come home, enjoys her life. We try our best to make her feel loved. She truly is a special dog.

5 Years!  Wonderful!  And she is such a beautiful girl.  

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.

What a wonderful gift she is. A huge thing to be thankful for on this day of thanks.
