Bender Enjoying Life – 9 Months Post Amputation

June 6th, 2018 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Here we are, nearly nine months post amputation and Bender is loving life. I am really happy that he made it to the summer and gets to enjoy the nice weather and running around in the yard. The other day, we took him to the beach to people watch (his favorite thing).

Reflecting on the last nine months, the amputation was the hardest decision I faced in my adult life. If given the opportunity to do it again, I would not change my decision at all. Seeing the sparkle of life in his eyes reassures me that it was the right thing to do.

Hope everyone enjoys the summer!

      Hi Jerry,

      The article is amazing and very well written. I really appreciate you taking the time to highlight Bender’s story and hopefully it helps other furbabies out there. Seeing the video of his pain again made me truly thankful for how far we have come.
