Gator got a gift!

The mail truck delivered a very special package today addressed to Christine and Gator. ย What a kind thoughtful member of the Tripawds Nation, perhaps somehow realizing that this summer has been very hard on me missing Otis and Tess? ย  I am so grateful for the truly wonderful friends I have made in this community.

Yes, it’s a gator!!! ย Being inspected by Enzo the cat.

Otis, an 8 year old 106 lb. lab/Dane mix, became a Tripawd on February 9, 2016 after his right front leg broke due to osteosarcoma. We did 4 rounds of carboplatin, but lung mets were discovered on Agust 25, and he passed on September 4. Otis was half of a bonded pair, and his adopted sister Tess, passed suddenly of hemangiosarcoma on October 9. The day before Tess passed, a local lab rescue group had identfied Gator, a 120 pound 6 year old yellow in need of a home, as a potential companion for her. His picture was on my phone, and my house needed a dog. . .

  1. Sooooo cute!! Such a very kind Soul to do such a very kind thing for another very kind Soul and her very kind (except to critters) Gator!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know he’ll love it!!

    At first when I saw the title of GATOR GOT A GIFT, I though maybe it was a four legger…or a three legger! May be happening soon…maybe?

    Lots of love

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

    1. Actually, never thought it would be this hard to find a companion for the big guy. But, we had Otis for over 6 months before I found Tess, so I know it takes time. I am also relishing the available bed space too. I almost get half!

  2. The summer months seem to be hard, don’t they? Picturing those we miss enjoying the beautiful weather along with us.

    Love the Enzo photo bomb. Hopefully, if Enzo approves, Gator will take to it, too!


  3. Awe that is so sweet Christine! Gosh people here sure are the best of the best! I’m sorry you’re having a rough summer but certainly get it. We all miss Otis and Tess! Sending you hugs! As Lisa said love the photo bomb by Enzo too cute. Enjoy Gator! You obviously have a fairy godmother!

  4. Awww so sweet. Glad that Gator got a new Gator. ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL get 1/2 I am luck to get 1/4 but that is ok I wouldn’t want it any other way ๐Ÿ™‚
