My furry family and I live in Atlanta. I care for a 12 year old pittbull mix (Brendol) who underwent an amputation of her front right leg for bone cancer. I also care for a 10 1/2 year old chow/border collie mix (Aissa) and two sister cats that are 3 (Mathilde and Morrigan).


Tripawd Troublemaker

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , at 6:55 pm by

Hello our friends. we thought we’d share, for any new tripawd parents, that our dear sweet tripawd puppies can get into just as much trouble on 3 legs as on 4. The following picture is from today, when Adelaide was caught digging at the fence. And as husky’s tend to be, she had absolutely no […]


For a Laugh

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:41 am by

I haven’t been blogging much lately, but if anyone needs a laugh, my girls can provide.  Adelaide is now 4 1/2 years old, and she is still ever the trouble maker.  Between her and her younger sister, Maggie May, there is always something they are getting into. Don’t let there innocent looks fool you. Because […]


Santa Baby

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:59 am by

Hurry down the chimney because the girls say they’ve all been good this year.  (I’m not saying a word) Adelaide and her sisters went to see Santa!  This was not our best year as far as posing.  Every time I’d have them all set, and then back up, Aissa would get up to follow me. […]


Happy Gotcha Day

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:03 am by

Per usual, I’m a couple days late.  But on 3/19/2013, 3 years ago, I went and picked up Miss Adelaide, then named Murphy, and brought her home.  And life has been a joy since.  With a few escapes and a few other notable moments.  She has turned into a very sweet girl.  She hangs out […]


Slipping and Sliding

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:19 am by

Most of you know that we recommend putting flooring down on hard surfaces to allow our tripawds to gain better traction and aid their getting around.  And some of you know that my particular tripawd, Adelaide, actually prefers to slide… on purpose.  Yep, that’s right.  She does a couple hops and then slides her one […]


Santa’s Coming to Town

Posted in Uncategorized at 4:51 am by

We saw Santa! We saw Santa! I apologize for not posting in quite a while.  Lots going on, but all good.  Today the girls went to get their pictures with Santa.  And they all did so good.  This is Maggie May’s (the great pyrenees) first Christmas.  We even waited 30 minutes for Santa to get […]

What is a tripawd-cation you ask?  Well, it is the combination of a vacation and a tripawd party all rolled into one, of course.  And it is PAWESOME. I traveled to Colorado a couple weeks ago because 1) I had a family reunion to attend, and 2) I really wanted to take some R&R in […]


Storms today and NO ANXIETY

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:05 am by

Yes, you read that right.  Extra Extra, read all about it.  Georgia had some huge boomers today and Miss Adelaide was at daycare and didn’t bat an eye.  No hiding in Dave’s bedroom!  When I picked her up, she wasn’t sulking, she wasn’t  scared, she was bouncing around excited like life was just hunky dory. […]


Adelaide’s sister Aissa turns 14

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:01 pm by

Happy Birthday to Aissa May.  Some time in June, she turns 14.  We don’t know a specific birthday since she was found in the middle of an interstate as a baby with a bad case of mange and worms.  I adopted her from the Humane Society that had taken her in and gotten her well. […]


Storm Phobia

Posted in Uncategorized tagged at 1:15 am by

Well!  Adelaide is 3 years old, and has overnight developed a phobia of lightning storms.  🙁 Last night I went to find her, and found her in the small hallway to the garage.  At first, I thought she looked guilty and had been trying to get into the dog food.  It was dinner time, and […]
