A Generous Thank You from Tripawd Hero Echo

In honor of our Tripawd Echo. Thank You for all you do!


Our donation is a thank you for all the information you give others. When Echo was first diagnosed with osteosarcoma this past March, we were strictly against amputation. It was only after Echo’s vet told us to check out Tripawds did we change our mind. We had no idea life could be so much better for our boy on three legs. He just passed his 8 month ampuversary!

Thank You for giving us hope!

  1. My precious labradoodle Luna is 3 weeks post amputation for osteosarcoma. I have decided no chemo and she is doing pretty well….but I think she’s in more pain than just post op…..and she is only 3 so it has been heartbreaking. I don’t know what to look for and what to let pass……any suggestions? Many thNks

  2. Thank you to everyone on this wonderful site. Echo was to celebrate his 18 Month Ampuversary on October 5, 2018 but his hind legs became paralyzed within a day and we had to let him go on October 3, 2018. I don’t know if things will ever get better without him, but I find comfort knowing he went to the Bridge on the anniversary of Jerry going to the Bridge. I know he is helping Echo out up there, like his wonderful parents are helping us out down here. Thank You for everything! I never posted much but always lingered. Our first dog, Buzz, succumbed to osteosarcoma on October 4, 2007. Having both of the boys be lost to this awful cancer is so hard. Both of our boys were different breeds and we know cancer does not discriminate.
    I’m not sure if Happy Hannah’s mom will ever see this, but reading how Hannah went out with M&M’s and deer poop, we gave Echo whatever he wanted on his last day and we learned he loved Peppermint Patties…who knew.

    • Tara, our hearts are heavy with this sad news, we are so very, very sorry. It’s hard to imagine dealing with this awful disease twice, how completely wrong! What a heartbreaker!

      I’m glad it could bring you comfort knowing he went to the Bridge on Jerry day. We have no doubt that Echo and our boy Jerry met and are having a ball together, along with your sweet Buzz. Cancer is mean, but it can never steal their beautiful spirit that will remain with all of us forever. True love never fades.

      With love & condolences,
      Rene, Jim, Wyatt Ray & Spirit Jerry

  3. Thank you so much Rene, Jim, Wyatt Ray & Spirit Jerry! Your message really made me smile today! It gives me comfort knowing Echo is with Jerry! You guys are the best!! Thank you for all you do for all of us! If not for you, we would not have ever done amputation, we never thought it possible, but after our vet told us about you, we changed our mind and it was the best gift we could give Echo. He lived a Hoppy almost 18 Months! Thank You!! You are truly angels!
