    Default I met a dog with 3 legs.

    So i'm having a surf with my son and was watching a bloke throwing a tennis ball out into the waves so his hypo GSP could retrieve it. I then realised he had 2 dogs. The other been a lovely older looking Golden Retriever that just sat in the water and barked and barked. I just figured it was a oldie that wasn't to keen to chase the ball again and again.

    Twice the hypo GSP lost sight of the ball and it drifted right out the back and both times i paddled what felt like halfway to New Zealand to retrieve it for them. (I couldnt let the poor pooch loose his beloved ball ).

    On the second paddle in the G.R got up and limped very badly towards his owner and thats when i realised he only had 3 legs. His front leg totally gone.

    They finished up their day in the sun and i watched as the owner walked all the way back to their car but he didnt wait for the poor 3 legged GR until they reached the vehicle.

    It was a hell of a struggle for the poor fella but he made it all the way back ...drenched and exhausted. By now we had got out and arrived in the carpark the same time as the poor bugger.

    Without even stopping for a rest he tried to climb up in the back of the trailer they where towing. They where parked right next to us so i had a chat to the owner.....who i thought was a bit of a cruel bastard for not helping old hoppy ...and he told me that his dog was only born with 3 legs. Now he was about 6 this poor bugger... but man did he have some will power. He was determined to get in the trailer and on his 3rd attempt finally got up.

    I guess theres only so much you could do as a owner of a 3 legged dog. I mean he still took him to the beach which is more than alot of 4 legged dog owners do. But i did struggle to watch the poor sod struggle so much. I guess you still have to let them fend for themselves a bit. He must have been strong in his other legs and hips ... but damn it looked awkward.

    GSP - hypo ? What about energetic, fearless, lovable ......... ?

    A bit of goss - Michael Beatty from R$pca Qld - used to own a 3 legged dog named Tripod and who lived for 14 years. That pup then became the namesake for his production company !

    Me too Dogman. I would have carried the poor pooch wherever he wanted to go. I even helped Mojo climb on the bed this morning and he's perfectly capable of doing it himself.

    He's so lazy and i'm a sucker for sad puppy faces.
