Tripawd Tuesday: Angel Gus Lights the Way

There is never an easy time to say goodbye to our animals, but there can never be a worse time than when a dog or cat doesn’t make it through amputation surgery. Today for Tripawd Tuesday, we are honoring one such special angel named Gus, who got his wings before he could ever learn to walk on three legs.

Gussie’s mom Donna shared the following with us, shortly after he left this earth:

“This entire ordeal/experience whatever to call it i dont even know, has been one that was filled with SO MUCH HOPE & FAITH, but resulted in SOOOOOO MUCH HEARTACHE?? I/WE all LOVE & MISS Our Sweet Gussie Pup SOOOOOOO DANG MUCH, but doin our damdest to start Living again.

Future Tripawd, Angel Gus

Heading to the lake here in a bit with Our Other Sweet Baby “Spirit” , and as everything else it will be fun but its gonna hurt like Hell too, cuz our Gus Gus wont be with us anymore?? this is the latest in the summer that we have ever gone for the first time, but with everything with Gus, we couldnt go before – we SURE HOPED & PRAYED TO, but it didnt work that way?? 

Anyway, from All of us here – The “Gussie Family” ❤ I want to say THANKYOU to u and the others who talked with me on the phone, and helped answer many questions and bring us much comfort when we needed it, and for ur kind email and conversation i had with u on the phone yesterday…. the help and kindness will never be forgotten❤


To Donna and family, we are so sorry for your loss. May your Gus run on all four healthy legs and light the way at the Bridge for our heroes. His life will always be remembered and treasured in the Tripawds Community.

  1. So very sorry for the loss of precious Gus. I’m crying, but trying to imagine him running free on his four legs at the Bridge. He will wait for you and watch over you. I could see his sweet soul in his face. God bless.
