WOwwweee! What an honor!

A very good resource of information about amputation is Tripawds, where the motto is “It’s better to hop on three legs than limp on four.” Here, owners of three-legged pets provide a fantastic support network for each other and for owners considering surgery. One can find a group of “peers” to bounce questions off of and read personal experiences on individual blog pages and forums. I also direct owners to search “Three-legged dogs” on youtube, as there are thousands of videos of dogs racing around after amputation, helping to support the notion that amputation is neither cruel nor debilitating.

What a fantastic piece, thanks for bringing it to our attention. I've added it to our "Tips and Resources" post with her first article about osa.
