2.1 mile hike? With bags? No problem!

• August 25, 2012

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!After working towards longer and longer hikes (Jack can handle 3 miles no problem now), we decided to take a break and try a shorter hike with some additional weight.  Before his amputation, we bought Ruffwear’s Palisades Pack, which comes with a Ruffwear Harness and the […]

A long time without an update!

• July 19, 2012

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Gosh!  I haven’t had a real chance to update in so long!  Life briefly took a not-so-great turn on the human side of things, but that’s been settled.  On the dog side, things are going beautifully.  Jack is more than fully recovered from his surgery.  In […]

Staples out today!

• June 7, 2012

I wish I could post a picture…unfortunately Brian has my camera while he’s in Belgium.  But he gets back on Monday, so I promise pictures (and possible video) then! Jack-boy got his staples out today!  We’re free and clear!  So to speak. 🙂  It was the first time I’ve been to the vet in seven […]

Day 5

• May 29, 2012

Well. So far, Jack has been doing beautifully. He’s made it look so easy, like he never had a major surgery in the first place. In fact, I’ve been having trouble keeping him quiet and resting – I’ve had to resort to just locking him up in the bedroom (dog-gate provided to keep him from […]

Pics to share!

• May 24, 2012

Tomorrow’s the big day.  I’m excited, nervous, and eager for it to be over.  I’ve already decided that I won’t go to visit Jack in the afternoon, even if his surgery is done and he’s recovered from anesthesia in time…I don’t want him to get excited to see me and then have to go back […]

This is where we start

Jack is 6 years old.  He’s an anybody’s-guess Mutt, with the most commonly thought breeds including Anatolian Shepherd, Boxer, Saint Bernard, and Black Mouth Cur.  I’m pretty sure he’s got some pitbull/bullie-breed in him, but don’t tell any of landlords this ever. 😉  I got him at 3-4 months old from a rescue in El […]
