In Memory of Hunter

Filed under Uncategorized

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

Yesterday we finished Hunter’s Memory Box.

It’s a project we’ve been working on for months.  Gathering his special items is a solemn experience.

Putting them into a box to be on display forever is important and we felt it should represent the true Hunter.

To me, the hardest part was placing his Super Dog bandana in the box, knowing that it would never again be displayed around his thick, strong neck.

He was such a Super Dog!  Smart, kind to all, loving to his pack members, tolerable of our new pup, a great pheasant hunter and companion.

He taught us what being owned by a great dog is all about.  He lead us to outstanding vets and their knowledge will enable us to take care of our dogs very well.  He gave us strength and the ability to help others through their own particular journeys.   14 months as a tripawd…. and he is a still helping others.

We think of him every day.

Love, Super Dog Angel Hunter’s Mom

    Absolutely lovely. Hunter was such a special boy, and he won’t ever be forgotten. Thank you for sharing him with us, it was an honor to be a “member” of his family through his journey.

    Ohhhhhhhh. Wow, this is truly a one-of-a-kind memorial and so beautiful. I am getting all teary-eyed, it’s an incredible honor for the Tripawds Nation to have our flag in the box too, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    Yes, Hunter still, and always will, inspire others to see the pawsibilities and know that there IS hope for an excellent life on three legs. We owe you so much for taking the time to be here to document your journey together, you are a true Tripawd Hero.

    What a wonderful tribute to a wonderful dog. It may have been hard to put together but was an important part of your healing process. Thank you so much for allowing us all to share Hunter’s journey! Hunter will truly live on in your hearts….and ours.

    Thinking of you and Hunter and your family….your post made my eyes leak. Our pups have so much to teach us on this journey…a journey that none of us ever wanted to be on, but the lessons learned from them is their legacy and that will live on forever. Hunter is truly a hero and his spirit is never far from you.

    I know Hunter is watching out for Charley from above, along with many other Tripawd Heroes, because there is no other reason to explain why Charley is still with us.

    Hugs and chocolate Labby kisses from me and Charley xoxo

    p.s. I just noticed that we both have the same blog theme! Great minds think alike! 🙂

    Wow Ellen! Yes we do have the same blog theme! Even down to the “chocolate lab loves water” top photo! I’m sure Hunter is watching over Charley and all of the other tripawds making their journey. He’s been watching over our new pup too as he grows up. We are very grateful for everyone’s continued support and are so proud to give support through this Tripawd community.

    Beautiful Memory Box! I thought of Hunter this week as I shared his story with, unfortunately, the parents of two newly diagnosed osteosarcoma patients.
