The Life of TriPod – a natural born tripawd Golden Retriever

Aug 28

Greetings to all of my fellow Tripawds!

I can’t believe that I haven’t posted here since May!!

tpod mom is dropping the ball….I need to have a talk with her!

While I haven’t posted in awhile please know that I do check in and read many of your posts and see them on the Tripawds Facebook page.

I rejoice at the victories and cry over ever fight that is lost……this is such an PAWmazing community which I am so proud to be a part of……everyone here is to be commended for all of the love and support that is shared with each other. We truly are family!

I have come to know many of you even better through my Facebook page as we share stories and adventures. Those of you who I haven’t I invite you to come on over and join us.

My life has changed so much since I came home to my tpod mom last year. I am a busy boy! I go to work everyday, get to take trips to the beach, have participated in a few fundraisers (and hope to do more), been to Golden Retriever meet-ups, participated in Goldens in the Park (I even retrieved a tennis ball and brought it back to tpod mom in front of hundreds of people, I was on the news that night) and overcome my reservations of new places/people (for the most part).

Life is good on three legs.

I just want all of you who are or who have had to deal with canine cancer to know that tpod mom and I keep you all in our thoughts and prayers. We are currently exploring ideas on how I can do fundraisers to help the fight against canine cancer. I may only be one little three legged dog who can’t make a big difference but if I make a difference for even one dog then for that one dog it will be big.

T.G.F.T. – see previous post for meaning 😉

    Oh you handsome pup! Has it really been that long since you’ve been here? Wow time flies! And as it goes by quickly, we are reminded to slow down and smell the roses thanks to you. Thank you for being here for Tripawds from all backgrounds, for showing us that no matter what we’re dealing with, the most important thing is to seek joy and live life on our terms. You are amazing T-Pod!

    I have just become the mom of a tripawd Great Pyrenees, Lola. We have had Lola since she was a pup, now 6 years old. Lola developed osteosarcoma in front leg and became a tripawd 3 days ago. She is doing great. If you have any tips let me know.

    We are hopeful with a good diet and boosting her immune system she can fight any renegade cells. Lola has become our heroine.

      The best advice I can give you (which I’m sure you have already been told) good diet and really watch her weight.
      Keeping the weight down can be hard especially with larger breed dogs. So many times when are babies aren’t feeling well we want
      to “reward” them with food and treats but with a tripawd even an extra pound or two can make it harder for them to get around.
      I’m as guilty as anyone of this! TriPod’s case is a little different as he was born this way so I am sure that your vet as put Lola on
      certain restrictions when it comes to diet.
      I truly wish you and her the best. We have a friend that has 2 Great Pyrenees and that are amazing dogs.
      Keep us posted of her progress and we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

      Wishing you all the best!
      tpod mom and TriPod
