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.


Hopefully these work! This is Domino playing ball this morning and having a blast. He’s getting much better at catching it!

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!It’s incredibly hard to believe that one month ago on May 13th that I was just bringing Domino home the evening of his surgery.

Which is good, because he is in desperate need of a bath! As far as adjusting, it’s been wonderful. His adjustment to the amputation is great. He’s getting […]

1 week!

Today marks 1 week after amputation for Domino! And the first week has gone much better than I expected. Dom had his recheck yesterday just to make sure everything was healing well. And he got a thumbs up from his vet. The only thing about the incision he didn’t like was a “dog ear” at […]

First weekend

So, Domino has been home with us since Thursday night. He is now 4 days post amputation and doing amazing! He still has his bandage on due to some slight swelling on the bottom of his incision, but it should come off tomorrow. He’s still getting along great with my other two dogs. We haven’t […]
