I know sometimes people see an amputee pup and think they’ve been diminished in some way, that they are different now.  Today I was reminded by Zato that he’s just as much of a hoodlum (at times) on three legs as he was on four.

He had left it alone since his surgery, but today he decided to revisit his attempted hole in the back yard up against the house.  I thought this was pretty impressive for one leg and 10 seconds (the time it took me to get there!)

“I’ve been framed, man! I didn’t do it – Eli did!”

Four legs or three, Zato is still very much Zato – our sweet boy!
