9 Month Ampuversary!!

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Tomorrow is Toto’s 9 month ampuversary.  I can’t believe it.  It has been a crazy 9 months, but I am so glad he is still hangin’ in there.  The good days still outweigh the bad, and for that we are so thankful.   Thank you to everyone for sharing your stories and giving us support over these past 9+ months. 

Here is a poem that I just read and it made me think of Toto…

Every dog must have a soul
Somewhere deep inside
Where all his hurts and grievances
Are buried with his pride.
Where he decides the good and bad,
The wrong way from the right,
And where his judgment carefully
Is hidden from our sight.
A dog must have a secret place
Where every thought abides,
A sort of close acquaintance that
He trusts in and confides.
And when accused unjustly for
Himself, he cannot speak,
Rebuked, he finds within his soul
The comfort he must seek.
He’ll love, tho’ he is unloved,
And he’ll serve tho’ badly used,
And one kind word will wipe away
The times when he’s abused.
Altho’ his heart may break in two
His love will still be whole,
Because God gave to every dog
An understanding Soul!

    What a beautiful, beautiful poem! Thank you for sharing that.

    And CONGRATULATIONS, Toto! Nine months is something to celebrate – hm. Actually EVERY day is something to celebrate.

    I’m heading off to get extra treats for Catie and Riley right now.

    Have a great day tomorrow, Toto.
