Oh Lucky Me. Today is my birthday number SIX!
It’s been a long road to get here.
Wyatt meets his new Paw.
But I’ve arrived and life is GOOD!
I think that when Spirit Jerry got his wings on the 3rd of October, 2008, one of the first things he did was make sure he made a special star in the sky with my name on it. OK, well maybe a blazing asteroid. Or an imploding black hole. Whatever. Spirit Jerry put me up there and then someone came to get me, I was born, and the world has never been the same since!
Wild Boy Wyatt
If anyone wants to know what I want for my birthday, how about some pork tenderloin?

I have so many adventures to tell you about. But right now I don’t feel so good.
High as a kite on Fentanyl
See, last week I chomped on a towel for fun. Which I do all the time when my people aren’t around! But this time the towel I ate made me feel terrible. Guess I picked the wrong kind. Anyhow, next thing I knew I woke up in a cage with a shaved belly and a big long scar down my gut. And man it hurt!
Wyatt recovers from gastromy surgery.
The clinic people were great but I wanted out. Yesterday the vet called my people and said I could come home. I’m glad. It’s way easier to sleep on my couch than in a cage with a bunch of unregulated dogs all around.
Mmmm Fentanyl dreams.
I like being in my own crib. But eating just doesn’t feel so great right now. After all, my stomach got sliced open like a stuffed turkey. Ouch. My people keep trying to feed me cause I haven’t eaten any real food for almost a week. Today I finally ate a little bit. They put that Honest Kitchen stuff in my bowl and hand fed me! Yep, king of my castle I am.
Wyatt recovers with hand feeding and Honest Kitchen.
Now I can’t do anything or have fun for at least two weeks. This sucks. No more towels for me, no way no how.
It’s gonna be a mellow Christmas with me at home getting over this surgery. I hope you have more fun than me!

Some people said hell would freeze over before an epic event like this would happen again. Well hah! It DID! And hell still froze over!
A Snowy Day in Tripawd Land
The Oaktown Pack came to see me in Colorado and it went something like this:
Oaktown Pack Greetings
Then we had some more fun in the snow. Hell was freezing over but no matter…
And the fun went on! Me and my people are still recovering so they gotta get the live action photos on the ‘puter. Stay tuned!

Some people think that all working dogs do is work. Well, I’m here to say that’s not true. Even German Shepherds know how to relax sometimes.
I was in a pawrade. Everyone cheered me on because I’m so great.
See the Tripawd Pawrade!
A few times a week my humans take me swimming.
Yes, it’s a three-legged dog swimming.
Go ahead, catch me!
Wyatt catches his favorite ball.
And then there’s a few times when I don’t do anything at all but look cute and beg for treats.
It’s a tough life as a working ranch dawg. But somepawdy’s gotta do it.

Today is my five year ampuversary! Will you pawty with me?
See Wyatt Run
Some people might think it’s weird to celebrate the day you lost a leg. But not you, Tripawds family. You get it. You know that no matter what some people say, it’s really better to be hoppy on three than not be here at all.
Pawty with Me Please
I’m a long way from where I started in Oaktown, and I’m so glad. Life is good!

My parents take me to crazy places. We went camping by a lake in Colorado. It was nice, but since there was nobody there but us, and a lot of birds, I was so bored. I even got to stay outside by myself all day, cause there was nopawdy around.
All day long I sat around. But I got to chase sticks when
my people would stop working for a few minutes.
I kept an eye on the place too.
Hey wait, who is that?
Oh, just you Dad.
Wait, there’s a bird!
Hmmph! Birds are boring. Oh well.
There’s nothing to do here!
Can we please go somewhere so I can get a job?
There we were, driving across the desert on our way to BlogPaws. When all of a sudden, something very large appeared.
Tripawd Wyatt spies the Very Large Array
Dad pulled over the RV. He said something to mom like:
First rule in government spending: why build one, when you can have two at twice the price?
— S.R. Hadden, from the movie “Contact”
I got out. I HAD to see what these things were. There was a sign; what do you mean we can’t go in?
Wyatt stands guard at the Very Large Array
I looked ahead, I looked around. This was big. Very big. A job had to be done and done right. I sat down and said to Mom and Dad:
I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.
– Hal, 2001 a Space Odyssey
Wyatt plants himself at the VLA
A job had to be done, and done right. I was ready for the challenge. But was the VLA ready for me?
Ssssssh! Would you PLEASE stop barking so loud? I’m recovering from three days at Blog Paws!
As soon as I recover I’ll tell you all about it.

Dang, there’s been no chillin’ and relaxin lately, I got lots of work to do to get ready for another #BlogPaws pawty!
Every week we go to the market, and I have to try to be nice and not try to regulate everyone. It’s hard, but I do my best. See these pix? They were taken on my new collar camera that I won from the #RecipeForMoments campaign. Pretty kewl dontcha think?
Here I come peoples
Mmmm. What’s that?
What? You say you have a German Shepherd who needs training?
I’m your dawg!
I’m pooped. Can we go home now?
I think I’m doing good. Four farmers markets later, I’ll be ready for Blog Paws, just wait!
