I would like to nominate my Daisy. We found a picture of her actually leaving the water, which is rare, normally you have to drag her out. Anyone with a Golden out there knows what I'm talking about. This October she will be 5 and this January will be 3 years as a Tripawd. 

 

Thanks everyone!

Okay, here is our image! It was a tough one to pick... that snowy photo is one of my favorites, but I'm working hard to dispel Minnesota's bad weather PR (never mind it snowed up until the second week of May this year), so I went with the "Happy Hour" shot from this spring.

THANK YOU to Michelle for sneaking it to Chris for editing :-) And thank you thank you thank you to Chris for fixing the image so our crappy cars aren't in the picture :D (BTW, Pat wants to know if someone can come take away his Saturn for REAL, instead of digitally :p). I so wanted to have a "Joy Session" photo shoot, but we never did...this is better times a million :-)

I absolutely LOVE all of these great photos! 

 

Kathi and 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!
