Wow. 9 months! Really? Could it possibly be that short of a time!? Domino celebrated his 9 month ampuversary last Friday the 13th! It feels like he’s been a part of the family forever. I couldn’t possibly imagine our pack without my precious Tripawd. No matter how bad of a day I’ve had, there’s always a bouncing hoppy wigglebutt at home to greet me.

Domino is doing incredibly well. He’s getting better and better about being around strangers and wants to go everywhere I go. Everyone that meets him is amazed at his resilience and perseverance.

We’ve had several fun journeys recently and a few more starting soon. A few weekends ago Dom went on his longest walk since I’ve had him! I’ve had a good friend move back in town and we treated the pups to a 2 hour!! walk at the local botanical gardens. Domino did very well, we made pit stops every 15-20 mins for him to rest his leg and get some water, but he loved every second of it! He would have gone longer if I had let him. It makes me really look forward to spring when the weather will be perfect to be out there. Our newest journey will begin on March 2nd, which will be Dom’s first Nose Work class! We’re taking a 6 week Nose Work class at a local training facility that looks amazing. And the trainer herself has a tripawd Jack Russell! I’m really hoping that the class will help wear Domino’s mind and body out since I worry about him injuring his front leg with really active play.

This past Saturday we went to the vet clinic where Domino had his amputation to visit with some of the technicians and assistants that helped with his procedure and recovery. He absolutely adores going to see his favorite hospital worker Penny. She played a big part in his life when he was in the shelter at the clinic and the couple days he was hospitalized after surgery. He will literally run and jump into her lap and start to whine and hug her, its precious!

Today we’re enjoying some lazy time since we have a snow/ice day. We went out to play in it a bit. It’s Domino’s first snow/ice with us 🙂 At first he was apprehensive and a little uneasy. But after a minute of reassurance and watching his brother Finn bounce in it he jumped right in too.

For now I’m gonna go cuddle with the puppers and settle in for a movie. Until next time !

Cassie and Domino

    Domino you are ROCKIN! Dude I can’t believe it’s been 9 months either. You sure made Friday the 13th one lucky day. Take THAT BAD LUCK! Domino is in DA HOUSe!

    So hoppy you’re going to do the nosework. We need to stop making excuses and get started doing it. I can’t wait to see how you do. I know you’ll be an A student.
