Life Goes On – Thurston’s Legacy

Meet Augie Daugie

Augie Daugie and THAT OTHER DOG, Raffie

Introducing Augie Daugie: He is a QuadPawd, but hopes to take on Thurston’s role and continue to antagonize Raffie! Pretty sure Thurston sent him to us, so Here ya go!

Hi! everyone! Thanks for welcoming me! Rene said it was OK for me to be a QuadPawd representative and ambassador! I kinda snuck up on Hoomama. It all started while she was looking for a Tripawd on line. Not easy with COVID precautions and no one letting her into the shelters so THAT was my opportunity. I was just sooo cute and Hoomama saw my picture and HAD to HAVE ME. She emailed the shelter but they told her she would have to wait for an appointment…

Well, anyone who us familiar with Thurston knows Hoomama ain’t good at waiting. She said she was just terrified someone would get to me before she did – so she kept calling and praying and emailing til the shelter called her and asked, “What’s wrong with you?” She explained about how she HAD to have me and couldn’t live without me and all that other babble she makes up that sounds so convincing, so they gave her an appointment to shut her up! The rest is history.

No one knows what kinda doggo I am – some Pit Bull and other stuff. Hoomama sent a DNA so we will soon know. I am 3 months old and I weigh 32 pounds. I know how to steal Raffie treats, sit, down and do touch!! Hoomama keeps trying to teach me stuff. Something about clickers and treats – she knows all about it.

I know I have some BIG paws to fill in trying to take over for Thurston but I am up to the challenge… as soon as I learn how to stop peeing on the floor! Lets start with the  Blue Bunny Ice Cream and waffles! Love to all from Spirit Thurston, Hoomama, That Other Dog (Raffie) and MEEEEE! Augie Daugie!

  1. Is it really you….is it Meeeee….Augie Daugie??? OMD!!!!

    Auggie Daugie, welcome to the best life a dog could ever have!!!! But you already know that because It’s Meeee Thruston told you that….along with a gazzillion other things to keep your hoomans on her toes….and the Other Dog too!!😎

    And ya’ll know what….I actually got a little slobbery nudge fro. THurston just about an hour ago. And it was before I even saw this post! So I was just getting ready to email your Hoomama to check things out. I could be part of the transport since up the East Coast.

    I have to say though, it was ki d of weir in that I didn’t get a feeling of “this is it!! This is the perfect match that Thurston sent”!

    And then….BAM….here we are welcoming you to the family as an ADORABLE QuadPawd Ambassador!!!! I am absolutely estatic for you, your Hoomama and The Other Dog Raffie!!! And from the looks of thi gs, I think Raffie is glad to have a puppy to help train to be the doggy he was born to be!!

    I truly have Hapoy tears knowing how much joy and happiness this little sweet Soul is bri I to your heart and home❤ And it absolutely is EXACTLY what Thurston wants for you and for Augie Daugie! And he knew the timing was perfect.😎 Time for some. more Meeee….and Blue Bunny Ice Cream!!!!
    Clearly he has some Saint in him. can’t wait for the DNA results. No matter what, he has some Thurston in him, in his heart and in his Soul❤❤❤

    Sooooo, Samson’s Dad posted on your hoomama’s thread that there was a tripawd Rottie up for adoption in N.C.

    1. Thanks! For the kind words and good wishes! Augie Daugie has Thurston’s spirit and his personality. He is into everything! Blows thru like a tornado then hours to sleep! He’s just perfect and that other dog is tolerating him just like he did Thurston! Soo good to hear from you! E were hoping you would see the post!!❤️❤️❤️❤️

  2. Oh, and in all my excitement, my post was even more jumbled and non sensical than usual. I was referencing a post that Samson’s dad made a put a tripawd Eottie for adoption in NC. But I didn’t write that til the end…….never mind……pretty sure you were able to put the pieces together and figure it out.
    Hurry! Hurry!! More pictures!!!

  3. WHAT A DOLL! Oh Augie, you are so irresistible. I see all kinds of breeds in you, and now you are the most original breed on the planet! The Augie Dawgie Breed!

    After having seen your photo, I would have been the same way as your hoomama was when she called the shelter, that is such a cute story. Clearly, Thurston had plans for you, Raffie and Mama Glo. What a trio you all make! Congrats on finding your furever home!

    You are already a great ambassador my friend. Welcome to Tripawds! xoxo
