I live in beautiful South Carolina with my 9 furbabies. Yes 9. I have 2 cats, a ferret, 3 rats, and 3 amazing dogs. An Australian Shepherd named Domino who had his front leg amputated after a car accident, a 14yr old border collie mix, and a 5 year old Anatolian Shepherd.

Surprise Hemimandibulectomy!

I haven’t updated in forever!! A lot has happened since my last update unfortunately. As far as life on three legs, Domino is doing amazing! He’s now 3 years and 4 months a Tripawd and with regular rehab exercises he’s doing great on three legs. However a few months ago I noticed a hard bony […]

I couldn’t possibly imagine our pack without my precious Tripawd. No matter how bad of a day I’ve had, there’s always […]

10 week update

Fun day!

I know this is a late post, but it’s been a busy week! This past Tuesday was Domino’s 7 week ampuversary! So, to celebrate we took a walk at the local Botanical Gardens!! Granted, it was a short walk, but it was a blast. It’s my favorite spot to walk Finn, my big guy, and […]
