So my peeps took me on a long winding road trip after visiting the big boring city, and I had no idea what was about to happen.
We hooked up with my homies from the Oaktown Pack!
We hadn’t all been together in a while so we had to pose for lots of pictures.
But we did get to run around a lot, so I showed Austin Ray my new ball.
Then we had to pose for more pictures, because we’re so good lookin’ ya know.
And some smartypants put my ball up a tree.
Maybe it was the skwirl.
We had to pose for some more silly pictures.
Then things got outta control!
And Codie Rae had some serious regulating to do.
A good time was had by all.

I’m a team player, oh yes I am
Just like Spirit Jerry, I got to hang with Spirit Calpurnia‘s Pack,
The Odaroloc Sled Dog Team, before I left Colorado
and they went up to Alaska for winter.
And for one awesome training run, I got to be a Sled Dawg!
Who says Tripawds can’t do it all? Man that was fun!
Best day ever!
P.S. Don’t get all freaked out; I was on Spirit Calpurnia’s Special Dawg team
of uh, mature, and more, uh challenged doggies so we
went very slow and only ran for a few minutes.
and nopawdy yelled “MUSH!” either!
What a blast!

What a week! I went to the Colorado doctor and she told me I’m pawfect. No more conehead! No more stitches and now maybe my fur can grow back.
Then she looked at my teeth and said they’re sparkly and white!
Haha, no teeth cleaning for mmmmmeeeeee!
After my visit we left Jerry’s Acres to fly south for winter.
But winter keeps following us.
Today it looked like this in the city!
Wheeee! It’s gonna be a verrrry interesting winter!

I’ve had three surgeries in my life and my people thought a fourth one would be a smart thing to do. Whaaaa? Nopawdy asked ME!
Thanks Travis Ray! If you hadn’t have bloated I wouldn’t have gotten a camera and knife stuck in my belly. But nooooooo. My people learned about bloat and then panicked. They talked to other panicky smart people who say that a “gastropexy,” which tacks my stomach to my abdominal wall, is a smart thing to do for a German Shepherd like me. Otherwise if my stomach decides to flip over one day, which happens to a lot of Shepherds, I could die within minutes!
Well I don’t want to die, I got too much regulating to do. So here I am, zonked out from this surgery AND they even took my right tonsil too! The good Dr. Imhoff and Dr. Smeak and that nice vet student Marcella didn’t tell me they were gonna do that! But it was looking icky and the smarty doctors said it needed to come out. So they did and now my tonsil is in a lab being looked at. Someone said “could be cancer” but I don’t buy it. Cancer, you don’t dare mess with me, got it?!

It’s elk hunting season here in Colorado.
You know what that means?
I get lucky!
The elk? Not so much.
Sorry for you Mr. Elk, yay for ME!

The coyotes don’t sing like they used to here at the ranch. I think they’re disappearing. And that’s the reason why skwirells are showing up again. And again.
But fear not. The Rodent Patrol is here.
The job of the Skwirell Sheriff has become ever more important as skwirells over-run us. They are chewing through the fluffy stuff inside our truck engine. They must be stopped.
Heeerrrre skwirly skwirl. C’mere, I have something for you.
Come on skwirly skwirl, you can trust me.

I’m sad today.
My Oaktown Pack Homeboy and fellow Tripawd Travis Ray had a big surgery. Mom says he “bloated.” His stomach turned all funny and upside down and he had to go to the hospital reallllly fast. The doctors saved his life by turning his stomach back to the way it was.
Wow. He couldda died. I’m really glad he didn’t. They fixed his stomach but he has a crazy recovery ahead. He could use your hoppy thoughts. Thanks guys!
GET WELL SOON TRAVIS!!!
P.S. Now Mom sayz that I have to get the “gastropexy” surgery so that doesnt’ happen to me. I hate surgeries. But being dead would be worse. Ugh.

Technically my Ampuversary Celebration is two days late but I’ll forgive my Momma for that ’cause I know she is BUSY (unlike my homegirl Codie whose Momma who had time to post about HER ampuversary!). So celebrate with me will ya? I’ve been a Tripawd for four years now!
For those of you who’ve never seen how freekin adorable I was when I came along to live with my people, here you go. I was only 9 months old here:
Some people think that Tripawds are “handicapped” or “special needs” but I’m here to tell you that’s all a bunch of bunk. I can do anything a quad pawd can do, and with much more style don’t you? Hah!
Hoppy Ampuversary to meeeeee.
The days are long and the work is hard here in this Colorado paradise. But each time I reach the top of the mountain, I am KING.
Can you hear me roar?
My people are working hard trying to make sure the tourists are happy. We go around fixing stuff and I keep a careful watch to make sure nobody causes another forest fire (the scary Colorado fires that you probably heard about got real close to here).
It’s safety first on the ranch. No barbecuing, no camp fires, nothing. Don’t even think about playing with matches you fool, or you’ll have to answer to ME!
