Will summer EVER get here?!

Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments »

It’s hard to believe it will be two years since we adopted our Tripawd, Cooper, just two weeks after his amputation.  He is my “comfort dog”, who loves going for rides in the car above all else!  He loves everyone, especially our senior dog, Hobie.  Here are a couple of recent pictures just to keep everyone up-to-date.

I’m looking for ways to include him in activities.  His able-bodied brother (they are litter mates), Charlie Brown, is able to go to dog-rescue events, the beach, and so forth.  Cooper can’t keep up as he keeps “slamming” his one front leg.  Any suggestions would be welcomed.  I was thinking about getting either a stroller (he weighs 75 lbs) or one of those doggie wheelchairs.  The most well-known company that makes them is right down the street from us, conveniently enough!  But, our entire house is stairs, so the only place he would use it would be the back yard, the road, etc.  Again, any ideas/suggestions for a house that has no large play areas.  He does very well inside the house, and on stairs, I would just like to include him in our activities elsewhere, as he seems to be missing out.  He is still so young, only 2 1/2 years old. I want him to have a long life with us, and the constant “slamming” of his leg has me concerned.

Ok, enough of that, here are the photos!
