Come on, Hannah!  Mom is already planning to bring along a baggie full of beans.  You can have some.  Gus doesn’t get to have a lot of the doggie treats because of his chicken allergy, but he will certainly get “good boy” beans.

 

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!

Karen, I’ll try to get a picture of you of the pug team that walks this every year – usually close to 20 pugs all walking together….big-grin    It’ll be hard to take pictures and try to control Taz but I’ll do my best!

We are home from See Spot Walk.  What fun!  There were literally thousands of dogs with their people.  We got to meet Tazzie and Barb.  Both Murphy and Gus did a double loop, since we were parked at the far end.  That’s two miles, and Murphy was still pulling on the leash trying to check out all the smells when we got done.  He did sleep all the way home and then was raring to go again.

Here are a few photos.  I posted a special one for Hannah in its own topic.

What a fantastic day! You guys are so lucky to have had such great weather (at least it sure looks that way). I’m glad you didn’t get any of the crazy snow that we had here in Colorado.

Isn’t it fun meeting other Tripawds? Humans always make a bigger deal out of it than the Tripawds do but it’s still so fun to see them together. Looks like Tazzy and Murphy really had a blast!! Thanks for letting us be a part of this magical day.

These are grrrrrrrrreat photos!  It must have been an absolute blast!

 

You could tell Taz was in tne “let’s go” stance!

 

CANNOT BELIEVE Murhy did two miles ad still begging for more!  What a stellar performance!  And Gus, you too!

That Murphy ad to have people bowing down in awe.  Imagine the look on people’s faces when they first realized he’s a tripawd!  I imagine a lot of people didm’t even see that.

 

Of course my favorite photo…..Murohy and Gus with Murphy proudlu displaying his “bandanna of hoor”.   What a happy, jouful picture!

 

Thank you Kathi for taking the time to share ANor paticipating n behalf of all tripawds!  You did us proud!
