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!

Grass. Oh Man, Grass!
Grass! Grass! Green Grass! Oh Yeah!
Dawg, I loves me some cool, cut grass. Especially after spending a month in the dry and dusty desert.
The only thing I dig better than grass—besides food—is a bunch o’ deep snow! But I guess we won’t be seeing any of that for quite a while now.
How’s the weather where you are?

My people never thought they’d see the day when I shared my truck with another dog, especially a dog like Leo the
terrorist Golden Retriever.
But these days, anything is pawsible. Life is good.

Why do you think it is that one of the first questions people ask when their dog or cat is going to lose a leg is,
How is my dog / cat going to poop?
Well, lemme tell you folks, we got it all figured out. Here’s how:
FOR MATURE EYES ONLY
We’re smarter than you think. Don’t you agree?

I heard Bart Simpson say that to Homer once. Mom says that me and my pops are a lot like Bart and Homer.
So the other day when my peeps left me all alone while they went out with their friends, I had some fun with my Dad’s shorts.
Heee heeee! Maybe I could start a new trend: Daisy Dukes for Dawgs!
Take that Homer, it’s YOUR turn. Eat My Shorts!
