Almost a Year

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Hello All,

It has almost been a year since my amputation and I’m still going strong. Mom and Dad didn’t know if I would have been around for Christmas but I surprised them.  They have been happy and excited that I’m doing so well.

I seem to get tired more but I’m not sure if it’s the extra energy I use or my age. I’m getting up there now, 11 years old and feeling it. I love to lay outside and watch everything and don’t forget about the barking.

Bubba has gained some weight after I had my surgery, which meant we had to change our food. It’s not too bad and Bubba has lost 8 lbs so far.

Anyway im ready for bed.

Goodnight All,

Dog Fair


Today Bubba and I went to the Dog Fair. I was able to walk around without any issue and I accidentally pooped on Moms shoe.  Bubba got a new collar with squirrels on it.  He hates squirrels.


Curly Hair

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Hello All,

I’m starting to get the hair back on my leg now but it is coming in curly along my scar.  Weird. It’s still a golden colour and I’m hoping that it gets a little darker and has some more red in it to match the rest of my body.  It’s kind of itchy but it’s getting better.  You can’t even tell there is a scar there

I went for my first car ride, that wasn’t to the vet, on Monday.  I went to my Gramma and Grampa’s house with my Mom and Bubba.  I was really tired being in the car for a while but Mom stopped a couple of times so I could stretch.  I can get out of the car on my own now but I still can’t get in on my own so Mom and Dad have to help me.  I have learned that if I sit by the door I can stick my head out and feel the wind.

Mom had to bring a baby gate so I wouldn’t go up stairs.  Mom stayed down stairs so I didn’t want to up stairs anyways.  I love Going there because Grampa always gives us treats, even when Moms not looking.  😉

Well, that is what I did last week.  I go to my next laser treatment tomorrow. Yay


Laser Therapy

Hello All,

Well I went to the vet last night and it was actually neat.  We got there and we had to wait a while but that was ok because I received lots of attention.  They called me and my Mom to the back and I got to lay on a nice blanket while wearing these cool glasses.  The technician rubbed a laser on my leg and now I don’t have the twitching anymore.  I think my Mom is going to take me every week.  That means more treats and head rubs.  That’s all the news I have for today.  Later…
