Belle on a SUP 7 years ago

Belle on a SUP 7 years ago

This morning a memory popped up on mommy’s Facebook feed. It was me on the SUP, out on the high seas searching for dolphins. I LOVE dolphins!!! One time, when we lived in Treasure Island, a dolphin engaged with me at the seawall. I ran and he swam. He would even turn around when we got to the hedge at the edge of the property. Unfortunately, I tripped and fell in. He was not Flipper, and he left the scene. Mommy jumped in while my ex-daddy ran inside and got the SUP. Mommy suited me up in my life jacket, then we both got on the board. Honestly, that seawall and paddleboard probably had something to do with me blowing my ACL, which led to the prosthetic in my knee, which turned into what they think is cancer. Keep sending prayers! The pathology is not back yet! Mommy refuses to believe that it’s cancer, so that pathology is going to come back negative for cancer!!!! Anyway, I get sidetracked. I inherited my ADD from mommy.

Belle, today

Fast forward to today…. I’m still not eating much, and I still cry at night, but I’m getting better and hope to be back swimming soon. Mommy ordered a nice harness from Amazon that has a handle on it, so she can help me if she needs to. She probably won’t need to, though, I’m fast on 3 legs. Maybe mommy needs to take up jogging.

Auntie Kay came over today. She says that my stitches look real good. She has a medical background, so she knows. Dr. Adney did a really good job amputating my leg and sewing me back up.

Uncle Shawn has been taking really good care of me, too. I LOVE him! He’s my boyfriend. Mommy says that he is my day nurse and she is the night nurse. I like being in his apartment because his A/C works really well. Mommy’s A/C doesn’t do so well in the afternoon. She calls it Hot Flash O Thirty. I also love Uncle Shawn’s apartment because that’s where the treats are. I don’t want to eat anything right now, but all of us dogs at the Regency love Uncle Shawn. I just love him best, and I think he loves me best, too. Mommy calls him the Dogfather. He’s a dog whisperer. This apartment complex is awesome! It’s gated and all the dogs come out and play together. Give me a few weeks and I’ll be chasing that Pug, Bing again. They have all come to see me and say “Get well soon!” The owners of the complex even donated to my gofundme. This is a great place to live, for dogs and people (cats too).

    Hi and welcome. Treasure Island? Are you in the SF bay area? We have a Tripawd Group that gets together twice a year or so in Mill Valley. Next meet up will probably be in Late October or early November. If you are still in the Bay Area and want to meet up with some other Tripawds keep an eye on the Tripawds Party forum! My first rear amp Tripawd was a Pug- who would not appreciate being chased! Mostly because she was pretty lazy and wasn’t really into that much effort : ). My current Tripawd is also a rear amp, a little Pug mix who lost her leg to a car accident. Belle looks great!

      Hi Karen, Thank You! I am in the other Bay area…. Tampa Bay. Belle’s friend, Bing, is a 4-legged, 1 year old Pug who loves to be chased by Belle. I’m not sure how much chasing she will be doing in the future, but I sure hope she can run and play. She loves to swim and since that is low impact, she will be doing a lot of swimming.

      -Anne and Belle

    I loved reading this. It made me laugh and cry. I hope Belle is swimming and playing with her friend real soon. It’s great that she has so much love. Best wishes

      She’s doing well. She’s got some attitude, but her lymph nodes did not have cancer, so I’m happy! I can deal with stubborn Rotti attitude all day long 🙂
