The second most common question about Dewey is a little more surprising, though. People often ask "Can he walk/run?" especially if I'm holding him or he's cruising in the doggie stroller with Greta. It always amazes me to remember that people sometimes mistakenly believe that three-legged dogs aren't mobile, but then again, they probably haven't had their lunch stolen from the top of the table by a tricky little tripod (that feat, by the way, entailed not just walking, but hopping, climbing, gobbling, and very fast thinking on Dewey's part!).
The truth is that three-legged dogs generally get around very well. Veterinary oncologist Dr. Greg Ogilvie puts it this way: "Dogs are born with three legs and a spare." If you're curious to learn more about the amazing abilities of tripods, check out these links:
