Casey, a Golden Retriever, was born with a deformity causing her to have only three legs. In most cases, this would be a very sad and unfortunate occurrence in a canine's life. How would a dog ever get to experience all the things that healthy and happy dogs get to encounter on a daily basis - things like running through the green grass or prancing through the rushing water? Would she ever be able to find a loving family that would be willing to give her a chance to live a full life?
Casey is luckier than most dogs in her situation would be; a family falls in love with Casey and they adopt her as a tiny puppy. They love her for who she is and, in their eyes, she is completely perfect. She lives an abundant life that consists of a loving family, car rides, nature walks, prancing through streams, snuggle time, and many other activities that a typical healthy dog would do. Her deformity doesn't hold her back, and her loving family helps her to live a plentiful and prosperous life.
Casey's family falls so very much in love with this incredible dog and her kind spirit that they decide to adopt another three-legged canine so that she can experience life with a best friend by her side. Before they can actually put this plan into action, Casey gets into an unexpected accident which takes her life; this leaves the family totally heartbroken and reconsidering if they will ever want to get another dog again.
Not long after the accident, the family discovers that Casey has an eight-week-old brother who was born with the same deformity. The pup is still in need of a home so they immediately decide to adopt the little brother, Chance. This fun-loving pup is in dog heaven at his new home, and every single day the family sees things in Chance that remind them of Casey. His playfulness, appearance, demeanor, and sweet spirit are all reminiscent of their beautiful Casey whose life was taken too soon.
Inspired by Casey and her beautiful legacy, they adopt another three-legged dog who is also blind. Not stopping there, they have a fourth doggie on the way. The family is committed to giving every single one of these precious fur babies the chance to live a beautiful, full life. They have even named their pack of dogs the "Tripawd squad."
Through all of the life's challenges, these pups never give up, and they still live life to its fullest capacity. Their outlook on life is incredible; they are happy, confident, and do not let anything get them down. They move around like normal dogs and are completely oblivious to any sort of handicap that they may have. It's a beautiful story about a family who is giving these disabled animals a blissful life and, in return, these cunning canines are showing the world just how astonishing life can be when you choose to experience it with your whole heart.
