Turns out I was terrible at documenting ours and K'Ehleyr's life as a tripawd. Truthfully she handled it pretty well. She learned to negotiate the stairs, down was never her favorite but going up she had to be reminded to slow down. She learned to dig again and to out maneuver and almost out run … Continue reading Tearful farewells and new beginnings
My previous post showed some photos of K'Ehleyr on a recent trip to Baja. It wasn't her first time there nor was it the first time we have travelled there with our Danes. As a junior in college I was introduced to Baja California. As a kid I had travelled to Mexico on family vacations but going … Continue reading Baja travel
K'Ehleyr continues to improve and her next trip was across the international border to Baja, Mexico. It was a little too cold for swimming but she had a chance to relearn how to dig again and explore some tide pools.
We are now just over a month out from her amputation surgery and she is getting the hang of being a tripawd. We still can't got for long walks but her walks are getting progressively longer. Also still waiting on her fur to grow back, it is about half as long as it should be. … Continue reading K’Ehleyr update

It is learning to adapt to the life of and with a tripawd, a new term I have learned for what 3-legged dogs are called. K'Ehleyr has osteosarcoma and while she is mature … Continue reading First day of our new adventure
Pet injuries are scary at any time but when on the road they can become even more scary. K'Ehleyr faltered while jumping into the truck and fell back. I tried to catch her but at 123 lbs. there wasn't much I could do but slow her fall. She seemed fine and successfully jumped in the … Continue reading Trouble on the road with K’Ehleyr
K'Ehleyr and I spent the first night on the road at the Calico Ghost Town campground just north of Barstow, CA. It was mostly empty and extremely windy. The 19 mph gusts were rocking the trailer all night.
Starting tomorrow it is National Park week. What does that mean? I means all parks have FREE admission all week. So find a park, better yet find a dog friendly park and get outside! Find a park
Wistiki Before I go on about this product I have to say that this in an Indiegogo campaign, I have no affiliation with it and is not on the market yet but it sounds cool and as someone who travels with a pet this could be a really smart item to have at hand.
