Remy – One month post-op

Howdy fellow Tripawds! ┬áMommer’s said that today is one month since I had my amputation surgery. Funny, but I don’t remember that day. Lots of things have happened since then. Who knew that me, Remy, could walk on 3 legs. But I can!!

I got a gift in the mail last week. It is a walking harness. It has been totally broken in with love by another Tripawd named TrickieLuv. It came all the way from California. TrickieLuv was a beach dog. Mommer’s says that we will go to the beach in my harness someday too. It fits me really well and Daddy couldn’t wait to put it on me and take me for a walk. I was so excited that I hopped right up into Daddy’s truck and off we went. So much fun. I am still getting used to the 3 leg thing, so Daddy said we had to keep our walks short for now. I will love my new harness as much as TrickieLuv did.

Mommer’s has a video to add, but until she figures out how to do that, here is a photo of me napping under the Christmas tree.

Remy loves laying under the Christmas tree. He is my favorite gift.

I am a dog lover and have been involved with Lab rescue and shelter work for many years. A few years ago I became a Professional Certified Dog Trainer and left the corporate world job behind me. I love working with dogs and their owners. Two weeks ago we found out that our Remy, our 8 year old black lab had Osteosarcoma in his left front leg. It was amputated on Friday, 11/16. Today is Day 4 and he has been up and hopping around. We are reading everything we can about cancer on the cancer dog blog and loving the inspirational stories here on Tripawds. We also have a 7 year old Australian Shepherd that we adopted a year ago. His name is Freddy. And we have Chico, our 30+ year old African Grey Parrot. We are finding the cup half full, not half empty. Ready to kick Remy's cancer to the gutter.
