I went swimming for the 1st time!

Filed under Tripawd swimming

I went swimming for the first time last weekend and it was as a tripawd!  My mommy and daddy were worried….my mommy said there could be things hiding in the water and my daddy thought I would just swim in circles because I only have one front leg.  I proved them wrong again!!! Tripawds can […]
