Huckleberry Finds A Home

Happy Anniversary Huckleberry!

October 6th, 2018 · 14 Comments · Uncategorized

Time passes so quickly. The last year has been a challenge full of surprises and unknowns. Fifteen months ago our visitor stopped visiting. I had almost given up hope of ever seeing him again. Fourteen months ago he came back broken, my eyes still fill up remembering it. My heart pounded when I saw he was alive, and it broke when I saw him dragging his leg. We did everything to try and let him heal but the leg was not going to ever be normal without intervention. Thirteen months ago we trapped him and began the process that was honestly a horrible road to travel when you don’t have anybody to turn to and all the animal people you knew were 1000 miles away.

A year ago yesterday we sat with our hearts in our throats waiting for the call from the vet. His leg was removed, broken beyond repair. We took Huck home the same day and life as we knew it changed forever. Our anniversary gift was decided, we chose life.

Yesterday we celebrated and I sorted through pictures. I am not a master at video, lol, but I fought my computer and cell phone to put a little something together to mark the day.

I hope you enjoy it. Huckleberry is the most amazing boy and the help I received from friends here truly made all the difference in the world.

Lots of love and hugs,

Jackie, David, Mitchell, Oscar, Andy, Bo, and Huckleberry

    Congrats! Video is priceless – I love how all the critters get to celebrate with ice cream. I’ve said in one of my previous blogs, “what doesn’t kill you DOES make you stronger”…you’ve proved this a thousand-fold. Traveling that journey nobody want to be on, changes us forever – but in a good way. Huck, you keep rocking it! Here’s to many more anniversaries to come.

    BEAUTIFUL CELEBRATION, ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!! You brought back so many memories as we travelled with you on Huckleberry’s journey.

    While this is certainly a journey abput amputation and life on three legs, it also a testament to what it takes to build trust, to build a bond and tomwho a kitty what omove feels likeπŸ’•

    What you have been able to accomplish with Huckleberry is nothing short of a miracle!

    And the extra bonus for all of is is we got YOU as an important wonderful and kind contributing member to the Tripawd FamilyπŸ˜šπŸ˜™πŸ˜š

    I loooooved seeing the video!! Of course, as you probably can guess, my favorite part was everybody celebrating with ice cream!!🍨🍨🍨🍧🍧 I have to give Mitchell an extra gold star for his good manners, his focus and his relaxing way to eat ice cream😎

    Hugs and love
    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

    Thank you Sally, you are so awesome! You helped me smile and even laugh through tears and fear of the unknown. I will forever be grateful to you. Slow and steady is Mitchell’s style these days, he reminds me of a kind, stubborn grandpa just takes his time and does things like Frankie.. “HIS way” lol.

    Lots of love, hugs, and pooch smooches πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–
