For Mosby

Mosby was a truly great dog. He was a hiker, a runner, a consummate napper and a fan of front porches and brisk weather. He was kind, sweet and noble.


He had auto-recall and knew many tricks and commands, even though he knew none when he was adopted from a shelter in Paris, Kentucky. He’s also been shot multiple times when he was young, although we’d only find this out much later, when we started taking x-rays. He never complained.

mosbyHe was always so strong and healthy, until his diagnosis with osteosarcoma. He loved his family very much, and his family treated him like the prince that he was. He was brave and stoic before his diagnosis, during his amputation recovery, and when osteosarcoma came after him again.

He was the kind of dog that made people want to get a dog. He was a better dog than most people deserve, even us, but we were lucky to have him. We miss him so dearly.

We wanted to give to the Tripawds Foundation to honor Mosby and to give back to the foundation that provided us with so much support and that gives so much to so many.

  1. We were all so privileged to be able to travel this journey with Mosby and to get to know what a wonderful Soul he is. Thank you for sharing him with us. Yes, we also are better off for knowing him.

    I love what you said about him being the type of dog that always makes you want to get a dog. That is a very special tribute. I didn’t know all of his background and in very touched that he was able to live his life loved and cared for by you. And yes indeedy, he definitely was a Prince, but he was treated like a King! In fact, I’m sure when you got to the bridge there was a red Royal carpet on display for you to make your grand entrance! And they had an abundance of food prepared for you that was indeed, truly, fit For a King! Of course, after each Feast you take a long cool nap!
    We salute you Mosby!
