Scribble had a lot of fun meeting some other Tripawds at the Tripawd party in Colorado Springs recently.  

I love Scribble.  He is such a trooper.  We went on a hike to day in Cheyenne Canyon.  The first part of the hike was moderate but then it became much tougher the further we went.  We were on the side of a hill that had a ton of gravel and we were both sliding a bit.  He kept going though and was ahead of me. 

   If you are considering getting a tripawd just keep in mind that they are fully capable of the challenges that they are presented with.  Scribble really kept me going today and I am so thankful that we have him!

  We live in Colorado and Scribble loves the snow!  He burrows in it, and it is pretty cute.  He pushes his nose under the snow and then pushes the snow all around.  When he finally pokes his face up his whole snout is covered with snow.  It has snowed quite a bit this year.  We are beginning to wonder if summer will be here soon.

  Scribble is finally starting to love riding in the car.  He has even started sticking his head out the window, which I think was triggered when we went to a drive through window and they gave Scribble a milk bone.  We live fairly close to the mountains but we still have to drive a little bit to go hiking.  Scribble loves hiking and now that he is beginning to enjoy the car more it is a great combo.  We have been trying to find hikes that have water because Scribble loves playing in the stream behind our apartments.  Scribble climbs up the mountain faster than we do and seems to have endless energy.

  Right now though it seems like every time we plan a hike it ends up snowing.  It is pretty late in the snow season so it is becoming a little frustrating.  Scribble and I are both hoping that summer is here soon!

Hello world!

   I would have never expected a dog with 3 legs to be such a big part of my life!!  This summer we adopted a puppy from a puppy rescue.  He had to have a leg amputated shortly after he was born.  We think it was because of a birth defect but we are not sure because it did not seem like the puppy rescue was sure why he had to have it removed.  He was the sweetest puppy though. 

  When we went to look at him we were in the play pen with him and instead of playing with or chewing on the toy he had in the play pen he decided to chew on the straps of my purse.  Needless to say I fell in love with him the night we went just to look.  We did not adopt him that night because we needed to come home and really consider the decision first because we were not planning on getting a dog at that point in time.  In the end we decided to get the puppy.  We decided that we were going to name him Scribble, which ended up being perfect.

    The morning we went to the adoption fair to get Scribble he arrived with orange highlighter all over himself, aparently he had gotten a hold of one.  To this day he loves to grab anything I am writing with and tries to take from me.  He was also the only puppy that got car sick.  He used to get car sick every time we got in the car, unless we gave him a little ginger supplement to settle his stomach.  He has grown out of this though and now likes to stick his nose out the window a little bit.  Sometimes he even watches out the back window of the car.  🙂 When we brought Scribble home the biggest challenge was stairs, we live in a second floor apartment.  It took us awhile and a lot of treats but eventually he learned to go up the stairs on his own, which is a blessing because I do not think we could carry him up the stairs anymore since he has grown.

   Scribble grew so fast it was unbelieveable.  It seemed like he was only a puppy for a few days.  He is currently 11 months old, so almost a year.  We are not sure if he will get any bigger than what he is now.  We do not know what breed of dog he is.  We do know that most medium size dogs have their final growth spurt at a year.  Scribble has a ton of extra skin too so we are not sure what to expect. 

   That is just an introduction to how Scribble came into our lives!  Have a great day!
