Happy Tripodiversary to Bea!

It’s Bea’s 1 year tripodiversary! This force of nature went in to Canada West Vet Specialists one year ago (Sept 18, 2020) to have her front right leg amputated. I had expected two weeks of us mostly laying on the floor as she learned to move around again… HA! As if. By day 3 the biggest hurdle was slowing her down. After 5 chemo treatments last winter, we decided not to go ahead with any further treatment for the small spots in her lungs. She has been going full tilt ever since, no signs of slowing down any time soon. What a girl.

To celebrate this milestone, we had a senior dog photo session with the amazing @shandandyourdogs last weekend. She took this lovely photo that perfectly encapsulates the exuberance that is Beatrix. It wasn’t an easy photo shoot, due to Shandess being one of Bea’s all time favourite humans—every time she tried to get Bea’s attention to take a photo, she barrelled over for cuddles. And when I say every time, I mean EVERY. TIME. C’est la Bea.
