Contemplating Amputation? Here’s Charley at 12 weeks post amputation!

Here is Charley at 12 weeks post amputation of his left front leg (osteosarcoma proximal humerus).  He’s running, playing, and jumping in the snow like he has always been a tripawd!

An Unwanted Journey…

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

One thing I have learned from this unwanted OS journey is that our dogs live in the moment.  Charley is still the same happy labby boy we knew before his amputation, only minus a leg.  To be honest, there are days when my hubby and I forget he only has 3 legs.


Charley reminds us everyday that he is living with cancer, not dying from cancer.  As Eleanor Roosevelt said, “Today is a gift.  That is why we call it the present.”


Below is a link to a video of Charley playing in the snow, just 12 weeks post amputation of his L front leg.  It is amazing to watch!  He can do everything on 3 legs that he did with 4!  Charley is our hero!!!
