Peda looks like she is saying, "I don't know what happened...the pillow just exploded!"

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!

I love BOTH these photos!

But there's a photo that always stands out in my mind.....he's standingat the edge of a receding surf with tne sun lit sky behi d him sort of silhouetting him.   I  THINK...not sure....but I think Jerry can diddle with the size and its not that crucial.....I think.....

Can you post it here and see what Jerry thinks?  Do you know which o e I mean?

I love BOTH of these though!   The "snow mug" is adoravle!!  I love the "hapy face" in the first o e too!    I guess.......the snow mug.....wait....the smiley face......no, the snow mug for sure!!  NLESS you can get the beach photo!!

**Ok, one more picture, this is for you Sally.  I'm afraid this picture is not the right resolution for the calendar entry.  But I so love it!!

I guess now I need to specify which one I want to use, since I got a little photo happy with this thread.  Sorry to photobomb!  🙂

I loved looking at everyone's photos - We all have the most adorable tripawds!

Sally - Thanks for the compliment! He is a pretty photogenic dog, LOL laughing

Barret was diagnosed with Hemangiopericytoma May 16, 2013. Front left leg/scapula/pectoral muscle was amputated on June 11, 2013 and we've never looked back. Follow our story on http://barret.t.....pawds.com/ and read my column on That Pet Blog

Griffey loves the pool! He was hit by a car 3 years ago when he was just 1 1/2 years old. Still going strong and loving life. We cannot imagine our life without him..
