A Tribute to Super Dog

Filed under Uncategorized

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

As a tribute to our lab (and Tripawd) Hunter, who we lost to bone cancer last July, my husband got a tattoo of him.

After three, 4 hr. sessions, this is the finished tattoo….

Finished tattoo with photo

Hunter’s name is spelled out in the pheasant feather, and there are two pheasants flying in the background.

(The photo on the left is what the artist used for reference.)

We love you Super Dog!

Here’s  a photo of my husband, Scott, with Hunter:


Hug your pups for us.


Love, Julie

    As soon as I saw his avatar picture on the forum page in the blog section, it made my jeart sing. It was just so nice to see him in the forus again.

    AND THEN…..AND THEN…..I clicked nto our blog…OMD!!!!!!!!!

    That is THE most perfect tattoo I have EVER seen!!! It captures Hunter’s essence brilliantlu!! His smile, his sparkling eyes, his coloring…..EVERYTHING IS SHEER PERFECTION!! Truly, I am absoltely astounded by the detail and the likeness!

    The artist did a magical job. Clearly Super Dog Hunter was overseeing every stroke. It’s just masterful! Love the touch of the pheasants…..Nice.

    What a WONDERFUL FOREVER way to memorialize such a great soul. Talk about being with you forever… doubt about it!

    Thank you so much for sharng this with us. I think the artist who did this and the one who did the portrait of Sassy for Michelle ought to be put in THE ARTIST HALL OF FAME, They put skill AND compassion i to each heartfelt stroke. Brilliant, just brilliant!

    Sending love and hugs to all… Super Dog Hunter’s picture I have here an extra kiss!!

    Boy, that’s a really nice tattoo. But I bet it hurt like the dickens!
    But it is beautiful! Hunter would be proud.

    That has to be the best dog tattoo I have ever seen! A masterpiece indeed! My mom sez she is coming to visit as soon as she saves up enough for a tattoo of Rosa Rae, she who came before us 🙂
