2 Months!

September 11, 2020

Devo is doing so well on three legs! Around 5 / 6 weeks she really came into her own and it is such a joy to see. She’s figured out her new geometry and started rolling in the grass, scampering, and generally getting back to herself. Pre-surgery her greatest joy was running like a maniac on the beach, and she’s been able to do that again (albeit with more rest breaks). Her hair has mostly grown back too.

Still she definitely reminds us that she’s in her final life transition. A few weeks ago she woke me up at 2 am to go outside. (I thought maybe she had to puke.) We went out into the night, and she hopped just beyond the reach of the porch light and laid in the grass. I don’t know what she needed to do out there, but I’m glad she shared it with me.

She sleeps in bed with me sometimes now too, which she’s never enjoyed until now. I like feeling her doggy body curled in my knees and knowing she’s there through the night <3

    Such beautiful pictures of beautiful Devo!! Strong and eloquent!

    Devo is clearly enjoying all the loving and spoiling. There is no way not to apoil a tripawd in over the top ways…like getting up at 2 a.m. just because a dog wants to go out in the cool night air for an outdoor snooze.😎

    Continue to make every moment the best ever, just like Devo is doing. NOW is all that matters!

    Thanks for the great update and delightful photos. Keep’em coming!


    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

    She is the best beach bunny Tripawd! Devo takes such beautiful photos. I’m sure her outward appearance is just a glimpse of the unforgettable, beautiful soul who now snuggles at night with you.

    I love this:
    “I don’t know what she needed to do out there, but I’m glad she shared it with me.”

    What a great attitude! I’m going to try to remember that the next time our Wyatt Ray does the same, which happens more and more these days. Thank you for the reminder that sometimes those 2am outdoor excursions aren’t just about potty time!

    Thanks for sharing a great pupdate! Give her extra smooches from us
