more powerful than a pit bull named Noelle...
and able to leap small vehicles in a single bound....(or not)
It's Tripoli, the Tripawd Wonder Dog!
I continue to be impressed by how well Tripoli gets around. In fact, he has enjoyed wrestling and playing with the other dogs, and in spite of only having three legs, he usually wins their mock battles. It's a constant source of embarrassment for my husband, who is so proud of his tough girl Noelle, to see her constantly bested by a three-legged dog.
I recently learned of a website just for Tripawds (three-legged dogs) and their owners. It is a great resource for anyone who has a three legged dog, or is considering amputation as a way to treat canine osteosarcoma or other cancers. I especially enjoyed reading some of the comments submitted by readers as they shared how kids have reacted when seeing a Tripawd for the first time. You can read the comments here.
And here is a very short video of Tripoli in his alter-ego disguise (doing nothing much at all).
