Tripawds 2014 Calendar Project Update

Many thanks to everyone who submitted a photo for the 2014 Tripawds Calendar Project! By Friday’s deadline we received 61 fantastic photo entries from Tripawds members around the world.

But we have a problem:

2013calendarThere’s only 12 months in a year!

Originally, voting to select the 12 best calendar photos was going to occur via the Tripawds Facebook Page. Unfortunately we didn’t think this through before we wrote the rules. We learned this voting process would exclude some Tripawds members who aren’t on Facebook. We don’t think this is fair. We also really want everyone to be included.

So, we hope you don’t mind, but in order to make sure everyone is part of this year-long celebration of Tripawd Power we decided to scrap the voting process altogether.

Instead . . .

Everyone who submitted a photo by last Friday’s deadline WILL get into some kind of 2014 Tripawds calendar!

Whether it’s a month-by-month, a calendar poster or a weekly planner, all photo entries will be included in one version or another.

Tripawds Admin Guy is working hard to lay out the different calendar designs. Yes, you will be able to know which calendar features your own Tripawd hero.

We’re sorry for any confusion, and we hope you think this is a good idea. Since 2006 we’ve struggled with choosing which photos to include in our annual calendar. So far, this seems like the fairest way to make sure everyone who took the time to submit a photo is included. We hope you agree.

Stay tuned for more details about The Tripawds Calendar Project!

Tripawd Tuesday: Achilles Beats the Histiocytic Sarcoma Odds

A diagnosis of histiocytic sarcoma like the one that Bella just got is sure scary, but it doesn’t necessarily mean every dog will go along with the statistics. Oftentimes Tripawds will beat the survival odds, like Barney from Houston Texas, who’s been loving life on three legs over four years after his histiocytic sarcoma diagnosis!

Achilles

Take Achilles for instance. His Momma Robin shared his story for today’s Tripawd Tuesday feature. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

Achilles unfortunately lost his leg to a type of cancer called histiocytic sarcoma. As the proud parents we tried to avoid amputation by treating it with chemo. Good results were showing within the 3 months time but then we started to see it grow much more aggressively in the 4th month. Amputation was the only option and the greatest decision. Now he is back to his old self. Achilles is in 8 months remission.

Congratulations Achilles!

Tripawd Howloween Costume Fun

Do you dress up your Tripawd for Halloween? We think Halloween is an especially fun time of year for pet pawrents. And when you have a Tripawd, there’s lots of opportunities to come up with a creative pet costume for your three-legged dog or cat!

Halloween Pet Safety Tips

Halloween should be fun, so before donning that costume, check with your Tripawd first to make sure that s/he is OK with wearing one and that it doesn’t cause stress. The ASPCA’s Halloween Safety Tips include:

“If you do dress up your pet, make sure the costume isn’t annoying or unsafe. It should not constrict the animal’s movement or hearing, or impede his ability to breathe, bark or meow. Also, be sure to try on costumes before the big night. If your pet seems distressed, allergic or shows abnormal behavior, consider letting him go au naturale or donning a festive bandana.”

When choosing a costume, the ASPCA also suggests ensuring that the costume doesn’t have “small, dangling or easily chewed-off pieces” that can create a choking hazard. Costumes must be properly fitted so there’s no chance your Tripawd will trip, slip or fall while wearing it.

Check out Pet360, which has some great Halloween costumes for pets that fit the ASPCA criteria.

And be sure to share your Tripawd Halloween photos with us in our “Anything Goes” Discussion Forum topic!

Readers, just a head’s up: Tripawds is blogging on behalf of BlogPaws Pet Blogger Network. We have been chosen as a Pet360 Ambassador and in exchange for sharing these tips, we have a chance to win a Pet360 gift card. The views expressed here are solely ours.

Tripawd Tuesday: The King’s Celebration

We would like to wish nine-year old King William the III a very hoppy one year ampuversary! His mom Laura wrote:

Happy 1st Year Ampuversary to Will Beagle (pictured on the left), with his four-legged sister and brother. He celebrated by picking up a chest cold, but the xrays of his chest were fortunately met-free. Thanks to the Tripawds community for your support during this first year.

Tripawd Tuesday Celebrates Chevy’s Comeback

Today we feature a short but very sweet Tripawds Salute to Chevy! His Momma Nancy recently wrote to us via the Tripawds Facebook page and said:

This is Chevy, a pointer mix we adopted in March.

chevy

We were told he was hit by a car in South Carolina as a pup. A good samaritan took him off the road and a local rescue eventually stepped in just in time.

He was on the verge of organ failure from a massive infection/high fever but managed to pull through on antibiotics. He had his leg amputated a few days later.

A New York rescue group brought him up here. We found him when searching for a special needs dog to adopt and fell in love at first glance because he is the HAPPIEST dog we have ever met.

Don’t tell him he only has 3 legs!

Tripawd Tuesday: Cora’s Miracle

Tripawds can do just about anything a four-legged quadpawd can do but some have more challenges than others.

Cora is one three-legged dog who faced enormous odds from the moment she was born. Her story is one of amazing resilience, love and dedication that will bring tears to your eyes and a smile on your face.

You may have seen Cora’s update yesterday in the Forums but in case you missed it, here it is for your enjoyment.

Cora’s Momma Chris has had a lot of ups and downs since adopting her in January of this year. Yesterday she wrote an uplifting, incredible update about Cora in the Forums, called “Cora is 9 Months Now – Beating All the Odds.”

Cora came home to live with me in January. She was just a few months old and still had sutures from her front leg amputation. Her leg was deformed which is why it was amputated. She is also blind.

She was a foster but after a week I knew three things: there was more going on (or wrong) than blindness and deformed leg, she needed more care and stability than the rescue group and foster situation could provide and she had an amazing, fighting spirit. So, I adopted her and found Tripawds. Cora couldn’t walk. Couldn’t feed herself well, barked incessantly, didn’t seem to enjoy human touch, etc.

Everyone I took her to agreed she had brain damage and the early guesses seemed grim. The word “degenerative” kept coming up.

You can read her complete story of resilience, love and strength here, but for now, here’s a preview:

cora5

Cora is happy. She loves me. She’s curious about other people. She’s made a human friend. She had her first trip to the dog park, something I never thought would happen.. . . She goes camping with me. She’s full of play. I can’t believe this is the same helpless, unreachable-seeming, demanding baby I brought home.”

We are so proud of both Cora and Chris! What an inspawration.
