  • Adopted Murdock in December 2006 when he was 10 Mos old. He has been the best boy ever! We just learned he has Lymphoma & are devasted. I can't imagine life without him & am hoping he responds well to treatment and lives many more months!!

  • I lost my best friend, Evie, a year ago September. I adopted her in 2006, she was 2 years old. That sweet girl was the love of my life and I miss her dearly. Thank you MAESSR for bringing that beautiful dog into my life.

    This is the ONLY source book for those owners whose dogs are special 'tripods'. The vast majority of canine amputee owners expound on their satisfaction with their decision to prolong the life of their lifelong companions. From all evidence these dogs continue to lead normal lives. This book is quite a unique and useful book for any dog owner's library.
