Greetings Tripawd Nation!!!

I’m 10 years old today! Mom’s letting me do the post in honor of my birthday! I guess it’s a pretty special day here for the ‘rents, Mom’s eyes are suspiciously shiny for some reason. I guess she never thought I’d be here for this day after that horrible “C” word came to visit. Sure, my life is different than it used to be, but it’s still a GREAT life! I may not rollerblade with Mom like I used to, or run 5 miles a day with Dad, but boy, do I ever get the attention! I don’t even miss that spare leg anymore.  Me and bro Kodi have always been spoiled, but now we REALLY get spoiled! For my special day, Dad’s grilling steaks for us, and then we get to go to DQ for dessert! (Thanks, Sally, for putting those ideas in Mom’s head…:)


Lookin” good for a 10 yr old Dobie!

Nopawdy knows how long we’ll be here on this Earth, but for now, I’m doing great….and that makes Mom SOOOO happy! She says I’m her Cancer Warrior, and my vets call me “Rock Star”…..I am a VERY lucky guy! Thanks, Tripawd peeps, you all mean the world to my family.

    I just read every entry and here I am with shiny eyes too. Nitro is gorgeous, his brother is adorable and I am SO HAPPY he is doing so well. What a special boy. Reading blogs helps me realize that I’m not crazy. I believe you said the grief was soul shattering and you couldn’t eat. I related completely. I know I’m in good hands with great people. Give Nitro and his bro a big kiss from me, Patches and Rooster. Thanks for your support from the very beginning. XOXO

    Hoppy Birthday to you, Nitro! I always thought of Halloween as Izzy’s birthday – not sure when it really is but guessed some time in late October. That said, my lil Halloween hopper is now 12!

    Happy Hippy Hoppy Birthday Nitro! Steak is my preferred way to celebrate too! SO cool you are rockin’ the decade thing too, we are 30 days apart. Hope your coming year is full of steak and ice cream and whatever else your warrior heart desires!
