That was fun, thanks Rene and Jim (and of course Wyatt)! Maverick thought it was a great talk and hopefully it helps some other tripawds out there :)


Mandy and Maverick

We were not home. Will there be somewhere to listen to a replay?

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!
