Boomer had his 8 month ampuversary on Oct. 2 and had the best day ever! Do you want to know why it was the best day ever? Wyatt and his pawrents Jim and Rene came to visit! It was wonderful, the boys had Charlie Bear treats and finally got to see each other. Wyatt is such a super guy and enjoys a couch just as much as Boomer!
The other day I was looking at Boomer and thinking about how much he has been through, how much all the pawrents of tripawds have endured watching their loved furry kids go through amputations. I don’t think I could have done as well with facing Boomer’s amputation without the help of the Tripawds family. So I spoke from my heart when I wrote this the other day. I hope you like it.
So here is to all the survivors, Tripawds and pawrents alike:
It was a normal sunny day
We had plenty of time to play
Grooming hit just the right spot
Then my heart my heart it stopped.
A lump hidden by your soft fur
Cancer you would have to endure
Your beautiful leg had to go away
My heart hit bottom that day.
When I left you at the vet
I didn’t want you upset.
You didn’t understand
As I walked away you licked my hand.
You made it through the amputation
Crying was such a temptation
You wagged your tail and greeted me with love
I prayed for strength from God above.
Your missing leg a gruesome site
Holding tears was such a fight.
You came home, the meds made you ill
At night you would lay so very still.
Night and day I stayed with you
My heart heavy and blue
You showed me all you could do
You taught me not to be blue
You learned your funny little hop
Your spirit it would not stop.
You stayed strong and sure
Teaching me we can endure
A Tripawd you came to be
We grew as a family
Sharing all the familiar tears
Facing all those horrible fears
Thanks to Tripawds we have hope
And many new friends to help us cope
