The Life of TriPod – a natural born tripawd Golden Retriever

Apr 05

T.G.I.F…..Yes it is Friday but more importantly T.G.F.T. …..Thank God for Tripawds!


The love and devotion of a dog or cat is something that is unsurpassed by anything or sometimes anyone else.They accept us unconditionally and love us no matter who we are. They just love us for loving them.

But the love and devotion of a Tripawd goes above and beyond that of most animals. They put complete and total trust in us to provide for them and make the right decisions for them. Sometimes those decisions are not easy and often involve heartbreak for us as owners. The rewards we receive back from them cannot be measured in words … is the look in their eyes, the smile on their faces, the nudge of a wet nose or                      just the opportunity to sit and pet their soft coats.

Whether your baby is a Tripawd because of amputation, accident or birth defect they came into your life for a reason. You were chosen because you are special enough to have enough love and devotion to care for a Tripawd. So feel honored…..even if your time        together is not as long as you would like………because you were bestowed the honor of being loved by a Tripawd and will forever hold that feeling in your heart!

So everyday remember  ……….T.G.F.T

    That was beautiful and so true. For so many years Cadence always took care of us. When she had her amputation and journey with Osteo, it was our turn to take care of her. She trusted us to help her on her journey, and that is what we all do, each and everyday that we are blessed to have them in our lives.

    Thanks Donna and Mr. T…..for the great photo and beautiful sentiments.

    The joys are breathtakingly blissful and the sadness kicks you so hard you can’t take a breath…–:-) but you remind us we are all in this together and there is no bond like a tripawd bond!,

    Thank you again for your sweet thoughts and for smiles the photos brought us
