Another Amazing Tripawds Three Legged Dog Blog

Spencer's Story

A happy memory

February 28th, 2012 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Over the next few days I’m going to post just different thoughts and also some things I had intended to blog; but never got around to.


On the weekend of March 18 we went up to the cabin.  Spencer, my youngest daughter and I went up on Friday.  My husband and the twins came up on Saturday.  Saturday morning Spencer, my daughter and I went into downtown Blue Ridge for a bit.  Walking around there with Spencer was like walking around with a rock star.  Everyone wanted to stop and pet the 3 legged dog, find out his story and comment on how great he was doing.  At the start of the day he was eager to meet everyone, giving licks and all.  By the end of the day you could see that he was like, “look people… that’s enough.  I have licked a thousand hands and I’m done with greeting the public.”  🙂  He started just walking past people and paying attention to my daughter instead.

Sometimes when you are out with a three legged dog you get some negative comments.  People suggesting that it would have been better for you to have just put the dog to sleep, or how they cold never do that to their dog, what ever.  But mostly, what we encountered was a lot of people amazed by Spencer.  <3

    I, too, encountered mostly positive comments about Rio. Most people are amazed at how resilient these dogs are, how they adapt and how they continue to love life despite everything.

    Spencer was a rock star!!! <3

    Spencer was quite a special boy for sure! I love these nice memories. It’s good for all of us to gather the good memories to have forever.

    Hugs and Wags,

    (even if only for such a short time)…It’s such a gift to be able to look after them their entire lives. And Spencer obviously had a lovely life with you.
