Violet's adventure as a three-legged dog

Violet the Tripawd Dog

One Week

Yesterday was Violet’s one week anniversary of becoming a Tripawd. She’s doing so, so well! She’s moving around like nothing ever happened and has her sassy personality back.

The other day I was doing some work on the couch and she came and stuck her face in the way so I had no choice but to give her some love. Later than night she also came and hopped up on the couch for a snuggle, This was awesome because she’s not a snuggly dog at all. We wondered if it’s because she was in so much pain before, and maybe she will be cuddly now.

Hayden was at work yesterday so I tried to take a couple pictures of me and Violet together to celebrate one week as a pain free Tripawd. She was not at all impressed, as she really hates having her picture taken. You’ll be able to see her facial expression in the photos below 🙂

There’s really nothing huge to report besides her wagging her tail much more often and getting her personality back. The incision is looking great, too, and we will get the sutures taken out mid-next week. At that time we’re going to ask the vet when we can start trying to tackle stairs. I miss my bed and my husband, and I think Violet is tired of being contained to one level of the house! Plus she loves sleeping on our bed with us.

We are really pleased and blown away with the progress and quick healing that Violet has made. We love our girl and it’s so great to see her without pain!

Invading my work space and insisting that she be pet.

Here is when she hopped up on the couch for a snuggle. She didn’t want to get down!

One week of being a Tripawd!

Totally unimpressed with my attempts to take a picture with her.

    She looks great!!! I love her expressions. So glad to hear she’s doing great one week in. Such an over-achiever! I love it!

    Shelby was always pretty cuddly but after her amp, she definitely gave more “lovies” (as we called them). I used to call it our snuggle cuddle love love time! It was the best!!!

    Keep on healing well!!!

    One week is early to try stairs, but if you have a harness, perhaps after the staples come out? We loved the Ruffwear Webmaster Plus harness – you can see pictures on the gear blog. And I love the “invasion” photo – how can you not stop to cuddle that face?
