Pete is a 12 year old Boston Terrier and his parents have decided to go ahead with the amputation of his front leg to remove his cancer. We just can’t let him go right now and so we are going to roll the dice and fight this together. We don’t know what to expect but we are ready.

    Welcome Pete! Your parents have made the right decision! Tell them that they will be very surprised at how fast you adapt to three legs! You get a lot more attention and treats!!! We hope to hear more about you and see some pictures soon!

    Thanks for the welcome, real nervous about the surgery. My dad was a veterinarian so I know the risks and the rewards. Hard decision because he is mostly blind and a little deaf but other than that he is still the same old Dog. We will send some tripaw pics later.
    Thanks for the support Peyton, hope you have a special day.

    Hang in there Pete,

    I became tripawd a week ago yesterday. It sets you back a little, but I am healing really quick and looking forward to chasing my tennis balls again. Some tips: don’t scratch at your sutures…what was I thinking?…I mean OUCH! Also, your pawrents are vulnerable right now, so do not hesitate to give them the look…you know the one. They will give you lots of treats and attention.

    You will be up on your feet in no time. Welcome to the fight of kicking cancer’s @#!^&.

    Hey Pete,

    Welcome to the most exclusive canine club on the planet! We hope that everything is going well with you post-op. The first few days to two weeks post-amp can be an up and down roller coaster and every dog gets through this time in their own way. There is a ton of information to be mined on this website but try checking out these posts to start with, they will get you off to a good start. There is tons of information on the forums as well.

    What to Expect Part 1:

    What to Expect Part 2:

    Best of luck and we will be thinking of you tonight and sending you pawsitive thoughts.
