So as summer come to an end, so does our time with Barney. We have loved having him here! For our last trip we took him up to the Okanagan here in Beautiful British Columbia. He got to swimming with the dogs. Anyone that has a Golden knows you can’t keep them out of the water so they brought Barney with them.
Barney is just recovering from his “laser eye surgery” since Daisy had an issue with his eyes. As Barney is resting and getting ready for his next adventure, check out the pictures of him on his last vacation.
Well we up here in Beautiful BC have been enjoying some record breaking weather and Barney was lucky enough to come camping and enjoy it.
It was Daisy’s new brother Carlos’ first camping trip too! We did discover that Daisy doesn’t like Barney looking at her so he is blind for the time being. I have a feeling he will be going in for some eye surgery very soon!
Check out some of the pictures below. Next weekend we’re off the the Okanagan for some sun. You never know where Barney will pop up!
Well here is Barney. He came only 2 weeks after I got a new brother. I like Barney and I like to destroy him more but only when Carlos ( my brother) isn’t watching.
We took Barney to Whistler this weekend to see some Olympic sites. To our surprise we also found the Deloreans from Back to the Future!
We’re going to Go see more of Beautiful British Columbia.
Watch put Barney!
I have had Daisy since she was a puppy so for almost 5 years. She has been a Tripawd for almost 3 years. I recently came across an 8 month old puppy at the SPCA. As a Tripawd parent I’m sure you’re all a familiar with babying your baby. Ana’s anyone had any luck introducing a new baby to the family.
Im looking for help

I am so proud to be a member ois this group. I remember before the amputation thinking that having a 3 legged dog would be the worst thing that ever happened but it is the exact opposite. It has been a blessing in disguise. Daisy has never been happier. I truly feel that her leg removed after everything that happened was a blessing. There are many struggles and a lot of the time I think I am doing it wrong but Daisy has taught me more about love and life than anything I could imagine. I love my dog just the way she is and is honestly the best thing ever happened to me.
I feel so fortunate to have found this site to help me threw the hard times
So I can’t believe it has been one year. This year we learned a lot and became new people / dogs! i feel so grateful that this site was here a year ago so I knew what to expect. I promise any newbies it’s not as bad as you think. I remember a year ago crying thinking mine and Daisy’s life was over, literally. But the only difference with Daisy is that she gets tired more often. We live in a 3 level townhouse and she does okay all day until late night when she gets tired and needs help. I promise all newbies, it gets better. In fact you will eventually feel so happy that you still have your dog, you will begin to think that dogs with four legs are weird! I promise!!!!!!!!
As for the stairs in our house, I think we may have to move in a few years to keep her young, but we’ll see. Other than fatigue she is no different.
I know, I know. I am horrible. I have been meaning to update everyone on Daisy’s progress but this darn thing called life has been getting in the way. The imortant thing is I am now!!!!
Daisy, Daisy, Daisy. She definitely is back. Don’t get me wrong there are times she / I struggle. I do miss the Daisy that could run 4 km with me. That Daisy has been replaced with a Daisy who gets tired after a light 20 minute walk. I do miss the Daisy that didn’t get stares everwhere we go, coupled with everyone asking or making comments. The new Daisy however has made a lot of new friends.
However she still is the goofy, cuddly Daisy. She still loves her mommy and I still lover her. My heart still skips a beat when she gets excited, presumably forgetting she is missing a leg, runs around the house and falls. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Thanks everyone for your patience with me and I promise I will try and be better with updating here!!!

PS – we’re leaving for Mexico in a few weeks and got some gear from the gift shop!! Everyone they have everything.
TRIPAWD UP YOU LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So we are almost 2 months post amputation and I have never seen Daisy so happy. The pain her leg that was holding her back is gone and she is like a brand new puppy. I haven’t seen her like this since before her accident. When the surgery first happened I was scared that she would become an “old dog” but the opposite has happened and I couldn’t be happier.
Thank you again everyone for all your support
