Once I became a tripawd I got extra loving from my mum and step dad and my dad. And of course I got to go out every day to the nearby parks and meet my friends just like I did before I lost my leg. The first month was a bit hard but once I came off the pain meds I started to fire on all cylinders again and after two months I was back to chasing my ball in the park.
As much as I loved going to the parks, marking and surveying my territory, there is nothing like going to the beach or the river and chasing my ball. That is just the best fun in the world and my first time doing that as a tripawd was during the Christmas/New Year break, almost 4 months after my amputation. At that time I was in between my fifth and sixth chemo treatments but that didn’t stop me from having lots of fun!!!!!
During Jan, Feb and March I got to enjoy a number of trips to the river and beach and I even had my last visit to the beach in April, just three weeks before I left for Rainbow Bridge. Mum bought me a life jacket for that trip so that I could have fun without tiring myself out too much.
Words don’t do justice when trying to describe how much fun I had at the beach and river which is why mum has promised me that she will put together a video showing it in pictures. She is a bit of a dinosaur when it comes to technology so I’m not sure how long it will take her to get it done but I am hoping that she will get it done in time for my six month remembrance.
So, while we wait for mum to sort out the technology here are a few happy snaps to share…..
