gayle – the early years

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

well, here’s where we’ll start.  gayle came to live with us in may of 2000.  we’d recently lost our 10 yr old afghan hound in march, and i was still very ‘un-ready’ to rejoin life.  but, life has a way of reaching up to grab you if you’re ready or not.  coming home one nite, during a terrible thunder storm, i just decided to take a back road near the lake… i don’t know if phil (our afghan) lead me to gayle, or if he lead gayle to me – but during the drive i saw something fussing in the muddy ditch, and there she was.  no bigger than a minute…don’t know how she got there, but she ran to me and we’ve been together since. 

i’ve always said gayle’s alot like me, being sturdy and ‘farm girl’ like.  who knew the path we’d take together.

gayle developed a small lump in her right front wrist. biopsy determined it was a soft tissue sarcoma, with amputation feb 17, 2010. she's recovering nicely, taking naps when needed, and enjoying every moment of every wonderful day. in december 2010 we discovered oral melanoma cancer. gayle had two surgeries to remove tumors, but the ugly disease took her from us december 12, 2011. love never ends.

  1. Gayle, you were FREE!
    And I thought my mommy was a cheapskate! She had to pay $10 for me!
