My Inspiration, My Friend, My Love, My Hero

IMG_5526

On February 12th, 1997 I walked into the North Miami Beach Animal Shelter in search of a special puppy. Little did I know that I would end up finding one of the best friends of my life. Actually, I should say that she found me. I had been scanning all of the cages, saying 'hi' to many sweet furry … [Read more...]

Just Like A Tripawd Pro

Tripawd Pro!

Hopping around, tail-wagging, and smiling---these are some of the things that Pebbles does a lot these days. She is so very amazing to watch. She charges up the hill just outside our house and most of the time she gets up on her own to drink water, eat and go out. Sometimes she needs a bit of … [Read more...]

The Pebbles Principle

Pebbles New Adventure-red-suit 010

Another week has flown by and my sweet little tripawd is getting faster and faster on 3! Below she is modeling what she calls her fancy Tripawd Walking Suit. We ordered it at Tripawds.com to help us help her get up and sometimes walk or balance a bit better. Right after Pebbles surgery (her one … [Read more...]

Smiling and Laughing: Who Needs Four?

Pebbles New Adventure: outside on 3

"Pebbles New Adventure" has shown me how we can learn lessons everywhere--especially from someone who has overcome adversity and adjusted so quickly to a huge life change such as Pebbles has. You might be saying, "Yeah, she's a dog. Animals adapt more quickly than people do." True, but it makes me … [Read more...]

Day 8, 9 10: Just Hoppin’ Along!

Pebbles New Adventure--relaxing after a big day!

At this point, all the days are just running together. But what I am sure of is how Pebbles continually amazes me. Today was a banner day as she got her staples out. She hops in and out of the the vet's office, outside at home to do her business, and is beginning to look like a tripod-pro.  She is … [Read more...]

Day 7: Victory On Three!

Pebbles New Adventure-purple-shirt-sleep

Looks like all of Pebbles resting and healing is beginning to pay off for her--although she is the rested one. For some reason, although she never used to wander around the house and explore or go outside in the middle of the night , she has decided now that being nocturnal is the way to be. But … [Read more...]

Day Three: Determination Wins

Pebbles & her body pillow

Who knew that having a tripod (or also lovingly called a "tripawd" at Tripawds.com ) would be like attending a personal development camp--a VERY  intense personal development camp. Thanks to Pebbs, I am getting real world experience flexing my personal evolution muscles. As our adventure continues … [Read more...]

Day Two: Single-minded Focus Creates Magic

Pebbles New Adventure

So here we are on just Day Two of Pebbles' New Adventure. To me it seems like it has been at least two weeks and at times two months. I can only imagine what it feels like to her! Last night was her first foray outside to "take care of some business". She resisted the need to go as she cried and … [Read more...]

Day One: The New Adventure

Pebbles DAY ONE

Hello my friends! Just want to give you an update on Pebbles surgery yesterday. The surgery went well, finding that the cancer had not spread too much. Pebbles is so remarkable-she came home as a tripawd just 2 hours after the surgery and seems to be so relieved to have her sick leg gone. She's … [Read more...]
