Mav’s 1st Birthday!

May 15, 2014

Okay, so maybe most people don’t celebrate their dog’s birthdays but I think its important to remind us to cherish every moment we have with them. So… when it first got warm I made some pupsicles to give the kids a frozen treat to cool off with (Maverick has an unusual affection for banana so […]

Puppy pics

March 24, 2014

So we missed National Puppy Day but I thought it would be nice to show how a puppy tripaw grows. As most of you know, I knew before I even took Mav that he would most likely become a tripaw so I had more time to research than most people do. Bringing Mav into our […]

This winter has been really tough on the canines and humans here in NJ, walks have been short to non-existent. So… with this nice, warm weather coming through we’ve decided to gear up and head out on the trails. I never push my dogs, if they want to go further then I let them. I […]

Maverick PT Pictures

March 8, 2014

Maverick wants to let everyone know just how important PT is to him and how NOT scary it is! You get cookies all the time and if you’re smart you insist you need chicken, cheese, or even steak to keep your attention. Usually though, he does it for the fun. Doing all your homework is […]

Maverick’s PT visits

March 7, 2014

Hi everyone, sorry to take so long to update! We’ve had some sick puppies this past week but no worries- everyone is better now and all chewed up toys are safely in the garbage can now 🙂 It’s amazing what a dog is able swallow whole when they know you’re coming to take it away. […]

Mavericks out of surgery!!!

November 4, 2013

Maverick is officially out of surgery and doing great! I pick him up Wednesday night after work and then the real work begins, lol. I had my panic attack this afternoon, waiting for the call but we made it and everything is okay! I have a whole fleet of old friends checking on him in […]

Maverick went for his pre-surgical physical therapy today! OMD, we are getting sooooo close now, just a week away! It’s crazy to think how this little guy has changed over the past three months, from a little ball of fluff to a sleek young adult. Of course, his energy level, if anything, has only grown […]

New Maverick Pictures

September 9, 2013

I thought with all the bad news recently, we need an infusion of cute around here. So here’s a few more pictures of Maverick just having fun, being a puppy.  

I’ve seen it a million times at each veterinary hospital I have worked at, the head shake followed by the solemn words of  “That’s such a shame.” As a society in general I thought we may have progressed to a better understanding of amputation as a viable surgical option. Since becoming the proud parent of […]

Maverick’s Start

August 27, 2013

I’m not sure how anyone could have seen my Maverick and not taken him home immediately. All I know is that I couldn’t, and from his first baby photos I was hooked. Hooked enough anyway to drive four hours into Lancaster, PA to pick Maverick up, the last of his litter to go home. I […]
