Bad to the (TriPawd) Boone

Our unexpected journey with our bad dog bundle

Bad to the (TriPawd) Boone

Baby hops

February 4th, 2017 · 6 Comments · Uncategorized

It’s been a week of baby hops for Boone as he navigates his way through life as a TriPawd.

We’re taking a daily afternoon hop to the corner closest to our home and back, with frequent stops to check out which dog has visited since our last outing. Today we went just a smidge further. Boone REALLY wanted to keep going but I know how much energy this takes so I bribed him with Yummy Chummies to turn around before he got tired.

Last night Boone really lit up when my hubby started to open a box. Boone’s unofficial title is our document destruction manager, and he feels that also includes packages received in the mail or on our doorstep. Here he is “inspecting” the latest package.

Ah the return of our bad dog bundle 💕🐾 Tripawds

We noticed last night that Boone started showing signs of phantom limb pain (excessive licking of the floor where his leg used to be). I was hoping the pain/nerve meds would prevent this. It’s not horrible and I hope we can keep him comfortable with light exercise, brain games and warm compresses ’til it passes.

Otherwise, he’s doing great. I know it won’t be long before he begins demanding his meals as he used to instead of waiting the 10 minutes or so for it to rehydrate (he’s an Honest Kitchen/Columbia River Raw fed boy). He’s no longer waiting to be served his meals in bed, hopping his way out to the food stand and giving me the stink eye ’til his bowl is in place.

Tomorrow he gets a visit from one of his favorite people and I know it’s going to lift his spirits even more.

Boone sends his love for all of your support and encouragement.

    Glad he’s getting back to “normal”….stink eyes are welcome when a Tripawd does it 🙂

      Thank you Paula. Yep, I don’t mind Boone’s “how come my dinner isn’t ready” stink eye 😉

    It’s great to see Boone taking on previous responsibilities, such as document destruction manager! He is looking like the Boone we all know and love. It’s great to have him back. I do hope the phantom pain doesn’t stick around too long.

    Continue taking baby steps forward Boone…you are doing great! 😊💕

      We’re happy to see the old Boone slowly returning, too. I’ll deal with shredded paper and stolen shoes any day 💕🐾
