Hello! I am new to this site, but I have had my Tripawd for over 3 years now. Whenever we go on walks, it seems like every person we see asks about his leg and what happened. I definitely understand their curiosity, but when its every day and every person it can get a little tiring to tell the whole story over and over again. It's gotten to the point where I try and walk him only when its dark so I can avoid people as much as possible. Does anyone have any good tips or tricks to deal with all the questions? Thank you
