Thread: Three Legged DOGS!

    People shouldn't be so quick to jump to conclusions! My dog has travelled on the back of a ute ONCE ever for a distance of 200m.. (no exageration there)... It was a very unfortunate accident... possibly something that was just meant to be!

    I feel sorry for any person who has a disabilty cause having a dog with one makes you realise how rude people can be (the stares.. the glances...the implications and comments that you mistreated your beloved pet.... i have even been told my dog is the funniest thing someone has ever seen)...

    She is a true blessing and an enourmous part of my life... not something alot of people ever get to experience!

    You need to take a pill. No one was having a go - I only suggested this would be a good lesson for people to learn from. Or do you think we should all lop a leg off our dogs to make them happier?

    KelpieMom, I transport my Kelpie in the back of my ute. And my Jack Russel has recently become a cab passenger. Lady, the Kelpie is on a short lead in the middle of the tray, short enough so she can stand, sit and lay down. Perfectly Occy doesnt think its safe for me too do so, the last comment was aimed at me.

    This entire post suggest that you believe people are having a go.

    I'll quote myself; why the hell did I say perfectly? Maybe I meant to say basicly? I dont know.

    You have read it the wrong way then...... I am not even going to bother explaining myself to you.. You are far too perfect to even listen anyway...

    Jumping back on topic...

    I have a friend who has a Greyhound with three legs. He was exercising at a public dog track (he was a pet at the time) and ran after a rabbit right to the far end of the track where his owner had never been before. He hit a section of metal pieces that were holding an old fence up and smashed his back leg to pieces.

    She had to make the decision about whether to put him down or try an amputation on the vets table . He put his head under her arm and wagged his tail while she was thinking. For a dog who was in an indescribable amount of pain and had lost a huge amount of blood he could still wag for his owner.

    So the leg came off. He had a long and hard recovery due to his blood and skin loss but is in amazing shape now, and loves a romp at the dog park with all his friends. He has never worried about being on three legs at all.
