Hey everyone, thought we had better pop in and say hellooooo….it’s been a while.

Well i firstly must apologise for oour long absence on here, Me Guiness and the rest of the family have been busy,busy,busy settling into our new Tripawd life, and after every worry that i had ratteling roung in my head those first few weeks i have to say everything is just BRILLIANT.

The inevitable day came that i had to go back to work and leave my furbaby at home whilst i went to work, I spent day upon day dreading the moment when i would have to leave him at home on his own to fend for himself all alone on 3 legs !!!! On the morning i went to work my heart sank as i closed the door behind me and spent the next 4 hrs dreading coming home, Fair enough he had his bed, his toys, his best friend in the world Cooper and the radio on, but he was minus a leg, however would he cope ???? Well how very silly did i feel when i got home to find him stood at the door wagging his tail with half the contents of my bin around him.

You see when Guiness had all 4 legs he would jump up and open the kitchen door to get to anything we had left in there….rubbish…leftovers…you name it he ate it, so we have a little latch that we put on the door if we ever leave him to stop him doing it. Never did it cross my mind that we would be jumping up to open the door minus a rear leg, how wrong can you be . There was rubbish everywhere and there stood a very proud Guiness, saying “look mummy arent i a clear boy”, From this very moment on i knew my furbaby was himself through and through and i have taken this mindset ever since.

We now go for walks, we have built them up from small 5 minute ones to about 20 minutes, we take water with us so he can stop and have a little drink as he does seem to pant excessivley after about 10 minutes. He has now resumed his rightful place at night , between me and my hubby. Cooper stands no chance at all of having a fuss 1st as Guiness barges him right out of the way and he right up there when its ball fetching time.

I am so pleased that everything everyone ever said about Guiness’s recovery was true, he fought back every step of the way and he is now every bit and more of the dog he once was before his accident. His fur is growing back and i am sure we will have many, many happy years.

I promise not to leave it so long before updating his blog again and will post some pictures of his progress. Thank you all once again for all your support x x

    I just read your whole story!! Thanks for sharing a great journey. My pup is 4 days post amp (car accident, too!), and I’m looking forward to the days when he can surf the countertops for crumbs and steal shoes and all the other business he used to get into. Go Guinness Go!

    Ohhh, you’d be surprised at what we can do. This is only the beginning of many fun “learning moments” as Gayle says, ahead. But after going through amputation surgery, you can handle anything!

    Thanks for the update, we love hearing about our Tripawd Heroes.
