Want to start your own annual Tripawds gathering? Then take notes from our chapter of Northern California members. This group has been gathering on a semi-monthly basis for over two years now and they’re still going strong!
NorCal Tripawds Meet Tomorrow
Quadpawds and their humans playing at Mill Valley’s Off-Leash Dog Park at 11:00 AM on Saturday, September 10, will do a triple-take when a parade of three (and four!) legged heroes and the world’s greatest canine terrorist, Bernie Bin Ladin, joins in on the fun.
“Consider this your seventy-two hour warning period. If you start running now, you may get out of the blast zone in time to avoid the worst of the fallout,” says Bin Ladin’s human, Maxidad.
At 11:00 AM, this annual gathering of Tripawds and Quadpawds alike will take place, with canines of every size ranging from Cemil, a giant breed front leg ampute from the East Baye, to Lylee, a warrior princess who reigns supreme over the North Bay.
This annual get-together is done informally through our Tripawd Parties Discussion Forums.
All you need to do to start your own is begin a topic for your corner of the universe and start rounding up guests. If you need help drafting a press release to send out to local media folks, let us know, we’re hoppy to help!
