Bart’s Story: The Greatest of These is Love

Did you know that one of our own, Tripawd Vizsla Bart, has received the American Kennel Club (AKC) Humane Fund Awards for Canine Excellence (ACE)? Today’s Downloads post is a special story about this award-winning Tripawd.

On December 14, Bart and his Mom Darcy will receive the ACE award presented at the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship in Orlando, Florida. This major event in Tripawd history will be broadcast on national television, so stay tuned for broadcast details!

In the meantime, we would like to share a beautiful article about Bart’s inspawrational life, which was written by Pam Stuart and featured in the June 2012 AKC Perspectives newsletter.

AKC-Perspectives_0613Here’s an excerpt:

“Darcy and Bart went even further and began competing for the Master Hunter title.

There were times during their hunt tests when judges would have a sympathetic look for that poor girl and her three legged dog.

Sympathy changed to awe as many grown men and women, often with tears in their eyes, were so moved by the courage and determination of the beautiful spirit in that beautiful dog.

And Bart did earn that Master Hunter title, ten months after his amputation. Bart is the first Vizsla in history to have completed the Master Hunter title, start to finish, on three legs.”

The author, Pam Stuart, has generously allowed us to share this article with the Tripawds community. We know you’ll enjoy it as much as we have!

    How LUCKY am I to have been chosen to take this incredible journey with Bart? Words cannot describe, but I think Pam Stuart did a great job in her article telling our story and I thank her so much for it.

    We LOVE the Tripawds Nation! I am in constant awe of all these Tripawds and their families and their inspirational stories. Bart & I are so proud to represent Tripawds everywhere and let people know that it’s not what you don’t have that matters, it is what you do have that counts!
