I have a HUGE shoutout of GRATITUDE for Miss Rene & her Tripawds Etsy store!!!

I have received many treasures from this store over the years and have never been disappointed. So I asked Miss Rene if she could make a plaque for our StuBear and without hesitation she said that she would be honoured to do so! The honour is truly all ours!!!

I had Stewie’s Hooman Aunty make up a small black plaque and I was incredibly surprised to see that she had imprinted Stewie’s paw print on it, it’s purrrfect!!! I then sent this small plaque off to Rene, to have her add her TriPawdian Magic and turn it in to a Super Medal to hang around StuBear’s neck.

It’s  not just a Super Medal, it’s a Super Duper Medal!🫡 🫡 🫡 His Paw Print is LITERALLY all over this!!! 

Isn’t it amazing!!! Miss Rene, i really, really can not find the words to thank you for this Furever Treasure! Between you and Super Stu, the package arrived in purrrfect time… On August 10th, what would have been Super Duper Truper Stu’s 5yr & 1 month Ampuversary!!!

AND Miss Rene made sure that StuBear had his Yellow Bandanna back on him!!! 😁 I still haven’t found the magical Flying Bandanna! 🙄 THANK YOU for this fresh new replacement!! Super Spirit Stu is grinning from ear to ear!

Plus she made this beautiful heart pendant that now sits beautifully on Spitfire Spikeys’ chain and another heart of love 💝

She has 3 paw prints on one side of the heart and Stu’s name on the back. Yet another Furever Treasure!

It was extra special because I was feeling very lost without my StuBear in the house. Paul was in the hospital recovering from major back surgery and the house just didn’t feel like home, you know, safe & sound! Stewie was my extra set of ears and even on 3, he was a fierce protector! It was a beautiful gift to receive, knowing that it brought him that much closer to me in my time of need! So far Paul has made it through his surgery with A+ grades!!

I know he is out there visiting each and every one of you, giving you sloppy spirit kisses on your cheek. I know he visit’s Mr Purrrkins Palace often and comes to them in beautiful Dragonfly’s clothes and sometimes he brings a mate… such a beautiful gift to get these dragonfly kisses! 💝

Sending all you amazing Tripawds and your incredibly brave Pawrents a ton of love and hugs!

Live in the Moment… Be More Dawg and tell everypawdy that Tripawds D’Rule!!!

Petra, Bionic Paul, Chester Molester, Starving Ted, but most importantly a million Spirit Kisses from StuBear and his Spirit Siblings!

Folks this is a tough one… 💔💔💔

I should have a massive PupCake waiting in my fridge, getting the pleading eyes every now and again because Stewie ALWAYS knew it was in there! I should have an extra big Bully stick and a Hedgie waiting for him , ALWAYS A HEDGIE!!! I didn’t see any new ones at the Pet stores i went in to recently, but I think if there is ever a new Hedgie I’ve never seen before, I’m gonna get it to add to Stu’s resting place. 🧡🦔🧡

And such a beatiful, magical place that his ashes have been placed! He has pictures of us (Mum, Dad, Chessie, Teddy & Aunty Anne) on his box, so he will ALWAYS have his Furmily  by his side! He is surrounded by all of his Spirit Furmily that have crossed over the Rainbow Bridge before him. He completes the circle between the 3 Douglas Firs, along with Shadow Munster, Keiko Freakin’, OdieMan, Mojo Munchkin, Abbey Girl, Spitfire Spikey, Lily Pie in the Sky and now our Tripawdian Warrior Super Duper Truper Stu! Too many Fur Babies lost, but each and every one of them a Blessing!!! ✨💫 🌈💫✨

This picture is the day we put our boy to rest. He was sent off with a 48 Hedgie Salute 🫡🫡🫡🦔🦔🦔🫡🫡🫡 and the sun was shining for our boy! He was happy to be home and settled. I spend a lot of time down here with my Spirit Kids, it’s very peaceful and I get to talk to them all. Miss Holly sent me a wind chime (you can see it hanging to the right of the picture) that i have hanging in this very special place and even though the wind may not be blowing, that chime will often whisper sweet love in my ear!

Stewie’s 48 Hedgie Salute! Farewell Dear Boy!!!

Super Duper Truper Stu didn’t make the calendar 5th Year Ampuversary, I really thought he would. I even made up a special page on our calendar celebrating his 5 Years on 3! But I know that in ALL of our hearts and minds, he made it more than 5yrs, he hopped happily and lovingly for YEARS and then some!!! Such a strong boy, both in his earthly clothes and with his Spirit Wings!

Stewie is smiling at us every day in July!

It’s very sad to me and i feel a little bit lost, in the sense of working with Stewie’s blog. I have no more Super Stu voice any more and it’s a lot sadder than I expected it to be. I knew it was going to be hard, but i didn’t know it was going to be this hard!!!

Please take a few minutes, maybe have a cuppa tea and watch this beautiful video of Super Stu’s Memories in Motion. It’s a video (of his videos) with all of his furmily over the past 5yrs years as a Tripawdian Warrior and believe me when i tell you, it wrenches at my heart, BIG TIME!!!

On behalf of our Super Duper Truper Stu and all of his Furmily, THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES OVER FOR ALWAYS BEING HERE! You have always been and will always be my very special Tripawdian Furmily!

Sending you all massive HedgeHugs and much love. Wishing you the very Hoppiest of Summers!

Petra, Paul, Chief Chester, Tender Teddy, TriPawd Warrior Spirit Super Stu and all of his Spirit Siblings in Heaven with him now!


“Dearest Super Stu, We’re Sure Gonna Miss You!              🧡🦔🧡”

***Edited to share the moments that Stewie has shown himself loud and clear to his furmily and friends…

SIGNS, SIGNS, EVERYWHERE THE SIGNS that STuButt has been sure to show us.

The funniest and most alarming is Stu’s yellow bandana going missing! As you can see in the picture above of his magical resting place, he is wearing the yellow TriPawd’s bandana… well a couple of daze ago it went missing, literally! Nowhere to be seen?!? I placed the smaller blue Bandana around Stu’s Bear making sure I GET TO KEEP this one! Hehe i don’t mind that Stu wanted his yellow one back, it looked absolutely smashing on him! But I was so worried that our Mama deer had come along and chewed it up and many got sick, so I asked for a sign that she and her babies were doing okay 🙏 🦌 Lo and Behold, not an hour later Mama deer showed up, ate some grass around StuBears rocks, snorted a few times at Chessie and then took off back into the woods.

But that’s another thing see, in the 15 years that we have lived in our piece of paradise, we have NEVER been given the gift of actually seeing Mamas’ babies and this year we have had the pleasure of seeing them twice! Here’s a picture of them hanging down with Stewie and his Spirit Furmily. I didn’t see any of them wearing his yellow bandanna?!?

Three furmily members asked for a few of Stu’s ashes, just to keep a little piece of this very strong boy with them furever. So i was on a mission to find 3 little pendant urns for them and although i had to wait for them all to come in from various places around the globe (Stewie teaching me patience again!)I found the most fitting ones for each of Stu’s special peeps!

I wasn’t going to get one for myself as i have him right close to the house, but when a favourite little boutique of mine called and said they finally found a pendant for me, ( I had asked for them to call me if they got any in as I had found a beautiful one that i sent of with Spikey, well over a year ago) I couldn’t resist keeping this fourth one for myself. In this picture my Stewie pendant is hanging on the special treasure that Miss Holly sent us. STuButt and his Hedgies, such a treasure 💝

“Can you see his Angel Wings in the heart!”

Then i went searching for 3 purrrfect cards to send off with these pendants and after browsing through my favourite SpiritWood store, i couldn’t find what i was looking for, so i went and checked other stores around our little town and was disappointed at every turn! A little niggling inside my brain (Stewie;) said go back to SpiritWood for another look, they have such beautiful cards, i really couldn’t go wrong. So back i went and within a couple of minutes of browsing through again, i found 3 (the last 3!!!) Hedgie cards… Of Course!!! How could i have missed them before, they are more than purrrfect!!! So because i couldn’t get one for myself, i just took a picture and will treasure it furever!

And his box, his treasured box… Because Stewie was to be placed under the Douglas fir trees, I knew that getting a traditional Urn for Stu wouldn’t work. So on the road trip day that Super Stu showed himself through a Raven, i found this picture box in a thrift store that jumped out at me and said “this is it, it’s the purrrfect size and pictures can be added to the top!” And a purrrfect size it was/is! So as you can see he is surrounded and loved by soooooo many good peeps and furmily!

Speaking of Ravens, twice now i have had a feathery furmily of Ravens flying around the Douglas Firs… calling out to each other and really making a raucous of a noise, but I welcome them each time with a smile!!!

I have had a special plaque piece made to hang around Stewie’s bear, but the magical  finishing touches are going to be done by Rene and so i sent off the piece to Miss Rene and her Tripawds Treasure Store and it made it to her in record time! Once again, as with his little pendant treasures sent out to his peeps, they were flown by Stewies Super Wings!!! I will share the final piece with you all when it is around StuBears neck. It’s such a special piece ‘cause it was his hooman aunty that has made the initial piece, with Miss Holly’s help i was able to get a purrrfect paw print embedded into the plaque and now with the finishing touches by Miss Rene, it will be an amazing gift to honour my boy!!!

Oh you guys, i have rambled on again and again, there’s just so many moments that i could share with you all, Stewie was some special boy!!! Thank you for listening to me and for supporting us all along the way.

With much love from the Allen Furmily

Super Duper Stu’s Memoirs

Hello my Tripawd Furiends,

It’s been a month and two daze since saying goodbye to our Super Truper Stu, it seems like Furever and Yesterday!

Super Duper Trupers Final Farewell!!!💔💔💔😭😭😭

Super Duper Truper Stu!

February 14th 2010~May 17th 2022

Oh my dear friends, our hearts are broken into a million pieces !!! Super Duper Truper Stu crossed over the Rainbow Bridge today! 💔 😭 He was such a brave, strong boy right up until he could no longer be the strong independent boy he needed to be! Even as a Warrior Tripawd, Stu Butt has ALWAYS done it HIS way!!! He is the best damn dawg that we have been honoured to have in our lives and the Allen Furmily will never be the same again!

When he came to us 7yrs ago, we were shocked that such a very good and loyal dog was handed off to so many different people, he was feeling pretty lost when he found his furever home with us and his joyous runs across the beach were a treasure to hold in our memories!

His life came to another crisis in 2017 when he was diagnosed with that D*#n Cancer, Osteosarcoma and had his Amputation, but in Stewie fashion, with the support of so many people and the love of his Furmily, kicked that nasty disease in the arse with his remaining 3 beautiful paws! And when i say the support of beautiful people, i mean all of YOU on! I swear Stewie knew when his blog went out and got to hear all of your wonderful words of support for him! He was truly blessed and so were we!! 

When (he helped 😉 me write his final blog last week, I had no idea that we would be saying a very sad farewell to our Sweet Stewie so soon! He must have known, ‘cause he was nibbling at my butt to get a note out to you all and make sure that he gets to send you all his love!!!

Stu Butt has touched the lives of so many people, he will be taking a little piece of us all across that beautiful bridge to a place we can only dream of!!! Our home has a HUGE void tonight and our hearts, barely healed from the loss of Miss Lily and Spitfire Spikey, will once again need to feel whole again!! ❤️‍🩹 

Rest In Peace dear Boy, may your spirit be running with the wind! Be sure to do some flyby’s as often as you can my darling, I’m gonna miss you like no other!!!


The video below was made in honour of our beautiful boy and Paul and I were truly touched by Holly’s thoughtfulness!


Thank you Aunt Holly, you know I still Ruv you and can be assured of a visit REAL soon!!! I’ve just got so many of my friends and furmily to meet, i could be a little while! You never know, i just might send YOU a sweet little Hedgehog  💫 🦔 💫

Super Duper Truper Stu’s 4 Year & 10 Month Ampuversary!

Good day my Tripawdian mates!

I hope everypawdy is doing well? Me & my furmily think of you often and send virtual hugs across the miles 💓💓💓

Super Duper Truper Stu!

I’m still Super Duper Truping along, but I’m getting old you guys! I’m lazing around like never before…But I’m definitely NOT complaining! I  get extra special service with my meals, water is brought to me whenever I wish, treats are a common theme 😉 I get my pupcake every month for my Ampuversary and Mum still finds me new Hedgie friends to hang out with.

Ampuversary celebrations

I have sooooo many lovely Hedgies buddies, they are all coming out for my 5 year Ampuversary that’s coming up in July! It’s going to be a grand Pawty you guys, please come and join us!!

Reality is a tough page to face my friends, although i am treated like a King and everypawdy Ruvs me sooooooo very much, I  am wearing down…  my legs aren’t strong enough to get my big heavy butt off the ground anymore and Mum needs to be my front leg assistance when I go out to do my business. I get worn down and tired suuuuuper easily, so my daze are spent laying around in my home with my two brovers. 

A Trio of Fur Bruvers!

Plus Dad’s had some trouble recently and had to go for a thing called surgery and i hear them talking about another one coming up… my poor Dad, he’s been a bit poorly, so please put your prayers together for strength and good health for me and my Dad both! 🙏 💪🏻 🐾 🙏

Poorly Dad!

When Dad was recovering from his first surgery, our family came out for a visit and give a hand around our property. They helped cook meals and do some odd jobs around the house, it was a true gift to have them all here! It was an added bonus that these are my favourite hoomans that came to visit, I was in puppy heaven with all the Ruvin’ i got!!!

The whole Furmily!

Soaking up the Ruv!

And My pupcuzin’ Winnie came out with my Aunty Sam too!

My pupcuzin’ Winnie

I even shared some of my pupcake with her, ‘cause it was really nice that she came out to visit and keep me company and as you can see, Teddy even shared his bed!! (Winnie was making sure he knew who she was for next time 😉

Sharin’ my pupcake!

Unfortunately my pucuzin’ Charlie crossed the Rainbow Bridge just a short while ago, she was 19yrs young, she had lived an incredible life and it was a true honour to have had her in our lives! We all miss Charlie Girl very much!!! 💛🐶💫

Mum has been busy taking care of us all, but she says she doesn’t mind, it’s all part of what we do for our loved ones right! The Hummingbirds are back and our Bats have settled into their roost for the summer, our Barnaby Bear has wandered through our yard a few times and Mum has her flowers ready to go for the season. She says all these things keep her Sane and tending to the Fur Kids Resting Place and flowers keeps her well grounded.

And speaking of Barnaby Bear, he almost drove Mum INSANE the other day… Mum isn’t happy with him at all right now! Just a few daze ago our poor Teddy got a sighting of him and literally ran for the woods!! The deepest part of the woods where he knew NOPAWDY could find him not even Mum or Dad with their tag finders, walking around for hours! If I could have helped I would have been in there like a hound! Poor Teddy was gone for almost 10hrs!!! We know Teddy is a very smart kitty, but we were so very scared for him!! He finally came home at 12:30 in the morning and Mum & Dad cried tears of joy!!! I’m so hoppy to have my Sensitive Teddy home safe and sound!

Barnaby Bear

My Brover Ted home safe and sound!

It’s been SO LONG that I last popped in to say hello to you all, I almost forgot to tell you all about having to say FAREWELL to our darling LITTLE LILY BIRD!!! If you recall, last March Mum had taken Lily Bird on her big plane adventure to treat her for her Hyperthyroidism and in around August, we were waiting to see how her T-4 was doing to see if it had come back down to a more reasonable level. But she started getting sick and not eating and like with Teddy, that was highly unusual for our Lily Bird. We took her for an ultrasound and discovered that her poor little body was riddled with Cancer!!! We had a a few blessed weeks with her and then she finally told us it was time to say goodbye! Our hearts were broken beyond repair once again!! 💔💜💔

Our Pet’s Resting Place.

Miss Lily Pie In The Sky!

I wanted to pup in to say hello to everypawdy and let you know that things are still hopping along in the Allen Kingdom. As i said above, my 5yr Ampuversary Pawty (on July 10th) will be the best EVAH, so mark it in your calendar and I will post pictures as soon as Pawsible! In the meantime, here’s me and my Brovers, hanging out and enjoying Life!

Fur Brovers Fur Ever!

And here’s my 4 year 10 month Ampuversary Celebration card that Purrrkins and Furmily send to Super Stu every single month and then some!!! 💝💝💝

Super Duper Trooper Stu’s 4 Year Ampuversary!

Good super duper trooper day to you Tripawdian friends! I have just recently celebrated my 4 YEAR AMPUVERSARY!!! Yup, you read it right 4 YEARS ON 3!!! WHOOP WHOOP!! 👏😁🙏

Mum and Dad say there are no words to explain how hoppy they are to be with me on my Tripawd journey! Never in a gazillion years did they think that we would all still be together 4 years after my 💩diagnosis of 💩Osteosarcoma! I knew i could do it, I’ve told them that right from the start, but they’re just hoomans and can’t help but be Worry Warts’!

I can’t believe it’s been months since i popped in to give you all my latest pupdate on life! I  am sooooooo sorry it’s been so long!! Please know that i have been thinking of you all and wondering how you are all doing?

Even if i do say so myself, I am doing PAWSOME!!! I am now 11 & 1/2 years young and I don’t hop too far these daze, but I feel GREAT!!! Mum still gets me my special Pupcakes every month for my Ampuversary

and I especially Ruv it when my yearly ampuversary comes around ‘cause i get a really, really special pupcake… it’s huuuuge! It takes me a whole week to eat it!!!

I told Mum I’m kinda too old to play with any more young Hedgies, I would much prefer to just play with the Hedgie buddies I’ve already got and even they don’t come out to play very often… they must be getting older too! I still get my bully sticks every month though 😉 

As you may recall we lost our Super Spitfire Spikey in the fall, he was at a grand old age of 21 years, 7 months and 13 days!!! Spikey was given a beautiful place to rest with our other brothers and sisters who have moved on to the rainbow bridge before him. We all miss Spitfire Spikey still, so very much, but  even though he’s not here in his physical body, he is with us every day in spirit, Mum see’s him all the time! 💚🦁💚

In March Mum and Lily went on their big plane adventure together… they flew over to Vancouver to visit the amazing folks at Northwest Nuclear Medicine for Animals (the Iodine Cafe). Mum left Miss Lily at the Spa for 5 days while she stayed in a B&B, it really was a big adventure for them both! It’s been almost 5 months since her I-131 radiation treatment, but in Miss Lily fashion, she is taking her time in getting her T4 number down. If it doesn’t come down enough over the next few months she will have to go back and see those lovely folks at the Cafe again… time will tell and prayers are ongoing! 🙏🐈🙏

Chester Chief Kitty in Charge had to get some dental work done and am super hoppy to report that he is doing great! 😸

And Talkative Pigger Ted is still talking up a storm and still looking a little ‘pudgy’ (he asked me not to mention the word f_t, he said that would be rude 😉 😼

Mum has been super busy with her new job and she is super happy there, ‘cause she gets to see all of her clients from her old  job! 😁

And we sold Toasty McBoaty not too long ago! We were all sad to let her go, but she was becoming a little too much to handle every year. So McBoaty has moved on to another home to be spruced up and loved for many more years to come! Farewell Toasty McBoaty!!!

But i tell ya my Tripawdian mates, as much as I live in a little piece of paradise, the whole of British Columbia 🇨🇦 has been in a severe heat wave for the past couple of months and most recently we have been surrounded by forest fires 🌲🔥! The little town of Fauquier, a few kilometres south of us, has been evacuated due to a huge fire that is burning too close to their little town! My furmily home has been on Evacuation Alert for 2 weeks now and the smoke….! Oh my gongases, me and my kitties have been house bound for what seems like furever! But believe me folks Mum has all of our belongings ready to be packed into our truck IF need be! She has told us all what her plan is and we are all ready to go to our stations, should anything go awry!

So Please my friends, if we can get a collective prayer for a good rain fall and no more lightning, the Powers that Be will surely hear!! 🙏🌧🌧🌧🙏 it will surely get rid of some smoke 💨 

Mum and i really want you all to know that even though we are out of the daily Tripawds loop, we think of you all often and hope 🙏that your journeys as a Tripawd become as Pawsome as mine!

Until next time my dear friends. Take good care of your pawrents ‘cause they Ruv us All to pieces!!

Much Ruv to you all from the Allen Furmily

Petra, Paul, Chester Mcfiend, Pretty Miss Lily, Talkative Pigger Ted and of course your Super Duper Trooper Stu!

Hoppy Belated Valentines to my Tripawdian Furmily!

I’m so very Hoppy to have you join me in my celebrations this past month, soooo many lovely things to celebrate!

To start with, i celebrated 3 years and 7 months happily hopping on 3 February 10th and then on February 14th, not only was it Valentines for my whole furmily, it was also my 11th Birthday! Once again I had pawsome Pupcake and I even shared some with my kittens!!

Here’s link to my Super Duper Pawty!

Super Duper Stu’s Pawty!

And then just a couple of daze after my 11th Birthday Miss Lily celebrated her 6th Birthday! Join her pawty celebrations below…

Miss Lily’s Birthday Pawty

Now it has been kinda tough on my little sister, cause she has recently been diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism and she is going to need to make a special trip to Calgary, a 7hr drive from home and a two week stay in a strange place in order to get treated. Mum has been been giving Miss Lily some special medicine that gets rubbed into her ear twice a day. She Ruvs getting her medicine! Plus she gets real Freeze Dried Raw Chicken from Stella & Chewys now to make sure that she gets no more fish in her diet, cause fish is bad for that thyroid thing. Who knew that it could be bad for a kitty to eat fish!!

Mum has been pretty worried about Miss Lily and will be pretty stressed out with Miss Lily’s upcoming trip to plan for. But she needs to be constantly reminded that Miss Lily will be cured once she gets her treatment and so long as Miss Lily’s kidneys behave (cause this whole thyroid thing can really play heck in the kidneys), she can live the rest of her long life in comfort!

And Miss Lily’s diagnosis hasn’t been the only disruption in our Furmily… We had to say goodbye to our Old Man Spitfire Spikey!! He reached the grand old age of 21 years, 7 months and 13 daze!!!

Mum had Miss Rene make a really special necklace to honour Spitfire Spikes’ life! We all still REALLY MISS HIM, but Mum says she see’s and feels him with her all the time! 💫💚🦁💚✨

And because Mum had lost my Furever My Heart ring, Miss Rene made sure to make another one for her, even better than the first! And i still get my Super Duper name engraved inside!! Both pieces are true treasures! Thank you Miss Rene for your Gift, Mum Ruvs you!!!

If only we could all live such a long and adventurous life!!! He did it with dignity and style and Spikey will ALWAYS BE THE LION KING, overseeing his Kingdom and keeping his Furmily Furever Safe and Sound! 💫💚🦁💚✨

This video link will show you just how full Mr Spikey’s life was, along with all of his brothers and sisters he got to mentor along the way…

Spitfire Spikey!

And then we ALL LOST OUR GOOD FRIEND WYATT-WHO-STILL-HAS-A-LOT-TO-SAY!!! Many tears were shed through out the Tripawds community and Wyatt took a little bit of each of us with him! But he and Jerry will NEVER BE FURGOTTEN! The Tripawd community will honour their Spirits Furever!! Massive hugs to both Miss Rene and Mr Jim, we know that the pain in our hearts never goes away, but it becomes easier to embrace over time! I absolutely Ruv that Mr Wyatt gets to howl with the coyotes and run with the deer, as often as his beautiful spirit desires! But most of the time he and Super Hero Jerry will be right by their Pawrents’ side! Love, Love your Memorial Sign my friend, it was an honour meeting you! 💫💚✨

Plus our Peeps in Michigan have been having a super stressful time… Our Whispering Purrrkins, as many of you now know, has been a Super Hero, disguised as a Kitty! 🦸‍♂️💜🐈🧡🙌 Catch up on all his news and the hazards of the Silent Killer Carbon Monoxide! 

Many prayers to our Little Big fella and the whole Furmily. Thank the Good Lord above for keeping them all safe and sound! We wish this for ALL of our Tripawds Furmily!! Way to go Mr P!!! 🦸‍♂️💜😽🧡🙌

Life has been pretty normal for me, my life as a Super Tripawd is pretty darn good, I’m not going to lie to you folks, it’s like being Royalty I swear! I get to do whatever i want or don’t want for that matter. I expect and receive my monthly Pupcake and Ruv when my Birthday and Ampuversary happens at the same time!

All of my Hedgies 🦔 come out to celebrate with me and because Mum can’t find any new 🦔 in our back woods, she puts some of my 🦔 on a Leash and that makes the chase a little more exciting for me! Plus, i am pretty much guaranteed a Bully stick on top of all of my other Surprizes!

I don’t like to hop very far anymore, i pretty much stay home and look after my Catsss. Like Spikey found out, old age has it’s benefits for sure!

This past year has been tough on many folks, the trials and tribulations in life have been made all that much more difficult to deal with, so please know that the Allen Furmily wishes you ALL THE VERY BEST! We pray that you all stay safe and sound!!

I am going to leave you with pictures of my Furmily of Tripawd Supporters and Cheer Leading Team!

Massive HedgeHugs to you all 😉

Much Ruv from Super Duper Stu, Chester Chief in Charge, Pretty Miss Lily, Talkative Ted, Petra, Paul and Spirit Spitfire Spikey!

Hoppy Fall (hehe, no pun intended!) to my Tripawdian friends!

Super Stu here, still hopping hoppily along! I know it’s been a few months since I saw you all last, but I am more than hoppy to tell you that life in the Kootenays is still as good as evah!! My Mum says to say that she is sorry for not getting me online sooner, but as usual, Life has taken over and that’s not always a bad thing right!!

I want to start by thanking those of you who left heartwarming comments on my last blog. I bit Mum’s ankle for being so rude and not replying to Michelle, Karen and Stacey!!! I’m so sorry for not replying to you! How very rude right!!! Please know that I read all of your lovely comments and I have to tell you that you all have a really bad habit of making me feel truly Ruvved!!!

Life has been treating me soooo well! My furmily lets me do what ever I want and I can tell you that I don’t always want to do that much… I am getting older and lazier! I’m now 10 and a 1/2 years old and believe me when I tell you that my age is the only thing slowing me down, ‘cause hopping around on 3 Paws has never been an issue!

I still love my truck rides, but I am just as keen to stay home and sleep too. Unfortunately our old Suburban got old and fell apart…literally! She was getting really old and we went on lots of adventures together, but she just couldn’t do it anymore. I still really miss my old ‘Burban! 

Dad got himself a new, (older) truck after the old ‘Burban kicked the proverbial bucket and it’s really cool, but I need a bit more help getting into it, so I don’t really consider it to be MY truck yet! Mum told me that she is working on a ramp so that I can feel more confident about getting myself in and out. Maybe that is how I can get MY truck back!

One of the other downers to this past summer (other than the whole world going crazy!) is that I didn’t get a ride on my Toaster! Poor old Toasty McBoaty broke her drive train and she needs to be sent to the repair vet! Plus we have had some really bad smokey daze up here with all of the tragic fires that are burning in your California’s and all the other places too, so it’s never a good idea to go boating in this weather.

We all feel really bad for all of the hoomans that have lost their lives and their homes due to the fires, we only have to suffer with the smokey mountains! Our Prayers go out to everyone! 🙏

I do Ruv all of the attention that I get you guys! EveryPawdy wants to pet an old dawg on 3 legs!! Sometimes it takes hoomans a couple of minutes to realize that I am only hopping on 3 and they always act so shocked!! They all say the same thing…. “he’s only got 3 legs!” Like I didn’t already know right!! I try to act shocked too, just to make them feel a little better, but it just comes out like a big grin!!

The other thing I’ve come to realize as a big old 3 pawed dawg, is that everypawdy wants to help! I get help when I need to hop up into my truck, I get a special bowl so that I don’t have to bend over when I’m eating, I have special rugs all over my house so that I don’t slip and the best part is when I get driven all over my property in the back of my UTV ‘cause I can’t hop too far anymore!! I Ruv my life!!

And do you know who doesn’t come knocking on my door anymore…?? Those Phantom Limb Pain things!!!! I haven’t seen or felt them in months and months now and I can tell you that I don’t miss them one little bit!!!

The most yummy part about my life on 3 is that since July 10th 2017, when I first had my leg and my horrid pain taken away, I have eaten 36 yummy Pupcakes! (but who’s counting ;)! Oh and the gazillion stuffed Hedgies I have!!! I do believe that I have every species of Hedgie alive and some of them are even twins!! The twins below are Paternal twins folks, don’t judge!!! 🦔🦔

As most of you know, i have ruvved my Hedgies my whole life, but lately I have been telling Mum that they tire me out too much… I Ruv their company, don’t get me wrong, I just can’t keep up with them anymore! This is the down side to getting old!

But I’m never too old to get my Pupcakes!! Check out my 3yr Ampuversary Pupcake you guys, it was hoooge and it lasted me all week!

Mum set out all of my Hedgies that I have collected over the years, I’m very proud of my Band of Hoppy Hedgies!

I tell you though, my kittens are my very best friends and my constant company, I Ruv them sooooo much! My oldest brother Spitfire Spikey is still plodding along at 21 & a 1/2 years old. He truly amazes us all! I tell you, he’s going to live furever!!

My sidekick Chester is still a Pester. He gets grounded for wandering too far from home, so he sulks and says he is going to run away if he doesn’t get his way!

I told him i don’t know where he is going to go??? NoPawdy else was going to spoil him as rawten as our pawrents do!!! He didn’t disagree…

Talkative Ted is still a major Pigger, but at least he ALWAYS stays close to home!

And our Pretty Miss Lily is still Prissy! She is always causing trouble with us boys and tells on us ALL the time!

Mum and Dad are still singing together, but because there is this whole Pandemic thing going on, they haven’t been able to get out and perform live for other hoomans. They have been staying close to home and having fun making moosic videos. I Ruv AllenSong’s most recent video, ‘cause it shows that even though we are in some pretty crazy times right now, all that matters is the LOVE that we all share together! ♥️🎶

Check out more of their videos on AllenSong’s YouTube channel You’ll love them, I promise!!

But before I sign off, I must tell  you… this Pupdate would have taken me another 100 Blooming years if it wasn’t for some very special help behind the scenes… My blog page wasn’t cooperating well and Mum needed to just keep trying to come back on and get it finished, but it just wasn’t working out for her. So she got in touch with Miss Holly & Mr Purrrkins and after trying everything she could think of, she set me up with the tools to go and ask Jim/Admin/😎 for help on site… I really didn’t want to trouble Mr Jim and Miss Rene, but honestly you guys, we would have been celebrating my 100th Ampuversary before you got any pupates to read! Major kudos to Mr Jim/Admin/😎 for performing his usual magic, working me through each step to get our blog working again 😉 Thank you so very much for your time Jim and Miss Holly!!!

So my lovely Tripawdian friends’ I will say A’Hoy for now! I will try to get Mum to sign me in a little more often, even if its just a goofy picture and a hello… stay well, stay strong and remember that it is always better to hop on 3 than it is to limp on 4!!!

Much love and sloppy kisses to you all! ♥️👅♥️

Plus very special hugs to Miss Rene (and family), Mr Jim and darling Mr Wyatt-Has-A-Lot-T0-Say 💕

A massive Herro to my Tripawdian friends!

it’s been too long since i saw you last and boy has my life been a ball of fun!!

Mum says that she is really sorry for having taken sooooo very long to let you all know that i am still happily hopping along! Because she is so busy with work, she gave me permission to paw out a blog to you and give you a pupdate….

I celebrated my 10th Burfday in February. I received a brilliant Hedgie E-Card from Mr Purrrkins, Sexy Saxton, Miss Holly and Mr Mark 😘 


In July of 2019 (do you see how long it’s been since i gave you all a update!!!), i celebrated my 2 year Ampuversary and my Furmily is over the moon! Words can not express how grateful we all are, ESPECIALLY ME, I mean SHEEESH, how is a Dawg supposed to get a belly rub from his Hoomans if he isn’t flopped down in front of them!!

Do you wanna hear just how spoilt rawten i am… I get a new Hedgie and a Pupcake every month, that’s right folks a yummy delicious Pupcake every month! For my 2 year Ampuversary i got a really special Pupcake! I can’t wait for my 3 year Ampuversary, coming up in July!!

I know it’s a long one, but if you have a few to moments watch my video, you will see how i celebrated my 23rd, 24th, 25th and 26th Month Ampuversary’s…

My kittens are all doing well and you will be super hoppy to hear that Spikey is still King of this castle! He turned 21 years old in April and our furmily couldn’t be hoppier!!! Chester McFiend loves his time outdoors in the evening, Miss Lily is still a Prissy Princess and Talkative Ted is still a Pigger!

Mum and Dad are still singing as AllenSong. If you have a few extra minutes, here’s their latest video, a song by Neil Diamond called “Play Me”.


I must hop off for now my Tripawdian mates, but remember…. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO HOP ON 3 THAN TO LIMP ON 4!!!

Hopefully i will see you all again sooner than later, i will have to nip at Mum’s ankles and make sure that she sends you some pictures of me celebrating my 3 year Ampuversary!!!

We hope you are all staying well and getting through these hard times in the best way you can!

Much Ruv to you all

Super Stu and his Pride of Kittens
