Not much happening round here of late.  Just relaxing and enjoying the warm desert sun.  Yesterday we had a fifth wheel pull in and park.  Billy came in and told me it had some type of doggie advertisement on it.  Next thing I noticed was a couple of dogs going by our fiver.  Both dogs were missing limbs.  A German Shepard with a hind leg gone...due to cancer and a Rottweiler missing a front leg....due to a car accident.  These folks run a fabulous web/blog site all about 3 legged dogs called Tripawds.  It is full of heartwarming stories and information on living with a 3-legged pet.  I encourage you to check out their site, they are truly wonderful people dedicating their life to helping these wonderfully resilient and loving animals.  It is inspirational to say the least.  I wish I could have spent more time with them, but they are only here for one night and they were visiting with some friends in the area.  I would have loved to have gotten to know them and their furballs better......hopefully our paths will cross again someday!


  1. Nice post Debbie, thanks for sharing their site and story.


  2. Sorry we just saw this now! Thanks for the kind words, wish we could have had more time too... but Wyatt (the GSD) had adventures to seek and things to pee on. FYI: He lost his leg due to the neglect of his first owners. It was our first dog Jerry who had cancer, giving us reason to start the Tripawds community.

    Happy Travels! :-)
