Happy Triday from Spirit Jake

We are certain Jake’s pack misses him dearly, we do too. Jakesmom was an early Tripawds member who documented his recovery so well that we just had to share his story for Tripawd Awareness Day!

On Tuesday, Sept 1, 2009, all of our lives changed forever. While playing ball with Wolfie, Jake snapped his front left leg. X-rays showed a pathological fracture, and the next day he had a bone biopsy. One week later, the grim diagnosis of osteosarcoma. We were all devastated! [read more]

Read Jake’s blog from the beginning for daily updates to see what a roller coaster amputation recovery can be. Sadly, cancer took Jake to the Rainbow Bridge much too soon. While his survival may not have been as long as many other pups battling cancer, he fought a valiant battle and his pack enjoyed precious time together.


Jake’s well-documented story is a perfect example of why we created the Tripawds Blogs – to share details about the presentation, diagnosis, recovery, treatment plan and results with others facing the same difficult decisions about amputation for their beloved pets. We can’t thank Jake’s mom enough for telling his story with such detail about his progress and plenty of photos and videos.
