If we are in town, we will try to make it.  Murphy has been doing over a half mile a day.  We’ll up it a bit by then and put his harness on him.

 

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!

Awesome Kathy! We hope you can make it. I’ve actually taken out an ad in our local newspaper that should start tomorrow (Idaho Statesman) – both print and on-line editions.

Well it’s down to the wire, and no definite replies…….but it doesn’t matter as Taz and I will be there!  ;)

 

Hope to see someone, but we will be passing out cards and flyers to the vet booths to pass the word on, after all that is what we do.

Kathi, we will be around the bandshell networking. Taz is a front legged amputee Siberian Husky – she will be doing her best to pull me to the zoo so she can “hunt”.   blush

 

We will both have our white TRIPAWDS t-shirts and she will have one of her TRIPAWD bandana’s and her new convert harness. You can try my cell phone but with all the noise I can’t guarantee I will hear it….   (208) 859-2504

 

I know Tammy will be there with her yorkie mix, but he will be in a baby stroller.  :)   

 

I’m soooo excited to meet you!
