Hoppy 10 Months Ampuversary to MEEEE!

LOOK AT THIS SMILE!!! I was at Day Care today and I ACTUALLY PLAYED WITH A TENNIS BALL!!!! Mom was so excited cause usually I don’t chase after balls… I think they MIGHT have exaggerated when they told Mom I was playing. Actually I was just holding the ball in my mouth to keep the other doggies from playing with it!!! I am a BAD dog (sometimes).


Meeee and MY Hoomama and MY big brother Raffie


This is MY CAR with ME inside it! I look really small but I am NOT! My car is put together with Duck Tape and Twist Ties. We just cranked over 150,000 miles. The Nissan Dealer PROMISED to keep my car running for meeeee!

HOPPY MEEEE!! This is my 10 months ampuversary and I am still going strong. My mom loves me more every day and she is driving me out of my mind! Still trying to get me to lose weight, she is feeding me less and making me EXERCISE (is she totally NUTS?)!! I keep TELLING her that I NEED these treats but she just will not cooperate. On the upside though, I get to go to Day Care a little more often and I am LOVING that. There are lots of hoomans at Day Care and they tell me I am cute. I love hearing that… especially from the other pawrents when they say it in front of their own dogs! I smile when they get jealous.

My Mom had her Birthday this week and I got the cake!!! She made one cake for us (without frosting) but then her friends gave her cupcakes 2 days in a row… so much for our weight loss for this week. I don’t go back to the doctor until April 3 so I still have some time. Pleeease!!! Everyone PRAY for meeee – that I have lost a few pounds and that my Xray remains clear!! Mom will keep everyone posted about me. I am on Instagram, too – 3leggedthurston. Hooman Mom is wonderful but she is not very creative with Social Media. I want to become an “Influencer” but I don’t see THAT happening as long as SHE is in charge! LOL!

Wonderful Wishes to all the Tripawds and their Hoomans! Hugs and sloppy kisses til next time!!

  1. You have such a beauuuuutiful smile Thurston! And who can blame you? This is huuuuuuuuuge! HOPPY TEN MONTHS! WOWWEEE!!!!

    We love love love all ampuversaries but when it comes to Saints, they are extra special. That’s because so many folks just have no idea of what is possible for a dog of your stature, and when we can share stories like yours it give HOPE to members with Saints too.

    Love that Doggy Ride of yours my friend, it looks like our vehicle too! And I’ll bet it smells just as purty eh? Hah hah!

    Found you and your momma (happy birthday Gloria!) on Instagram. Wow she’s quite the techie these days, sooooo impressive 🙂

    We’ll keep paws fingers toes and tails crossed for a good report card. And of COURSE it’ll be good, your appointment is happening on the THIRD. Duh!
