Another Amazing Tripawds Three Legged Dog Blog

Monkeybutts took over my place…

So I had some friends come into town from Albany (NY not GA) this weekend.  My friend Polly has two silky terriers (Francesca & Molly) and she brought them with them.  I was anxious to have dogs in my apartment again but it ended up being amazing.  I put Lupe’s beds away, I wasn’t ready to have another dog on them, but Francesca and Molly had free reign of the place.  They played with Lupe’s old toys, used her bowls, chilled on the furniture and even went on some of her old walks.  It was great and so helpful for me.  Of course I couldn’t help thinking about how it would have been to have Lupe meet and chill with them, but it was like Lupe was with us.

When they left, I sent the girls home with some of Lupe’s toys that they happily played with and a couple of her extra leashes.  I also decided not to put Lupe’s beds back out.  They are put away but near my bed…in case she needs to snooze while watching over me.  I also bought some frames to hang up so pictures of her because I have none in my place, she was here, I didn’t need pictures of her.  I also bought a shelf that I’m going to have my neighbor hang up over her favorite chair in the living room, I’ve decided its where I will put her ashes, along with one of my favorite pictures of us and the card of her pawprint.

The apartment is quiet without the 2 monkeybutts but its okay.  This is my new normal and I’m slowly (very slowly) getting used to it.

    Awww, I’m glad some monkeybutts were able to bring some cheer to you. That is a sweet image of her bed by your bed so she can rest and be comfy while she watches over you.

    Hope you continue to adjust to the new normal.
