Just wanted to give a big shout out to new Tripawds ModPawd member ET Gayle (aka Charon)!

She's been such a strong, active supporter of Tripawds over the last two years, and we're thrilled that she said yes to being our newest ModPawd. Watch for her as she helps us welcome new members, approve posts, shuffle posts to appropriate forums, etc.

Thank you Charon, we're so hoppy you said YES! xoxo

Welcome to the Squad Charon, glad you said yes!

So, did you take the all expense paid trip to Hawaii or the cash for the signing bonus?
Oh, wait, maybe they don’t do that anymore…

If Charon now has Monkeybutts then that means that the Monkeybutts have infiltrated the Tripawds inner sanctum.winker

Yeah Charon!!!

Spirit Samson was Spirit Tripawd Daisys four legged "brother" and ruled as the self proclaimed head of the Monkeybutt Federations East Coast Division. Lady Chunky Monkey stayed from Oct 2011 and left for the bridge in Apr 2012. Miss Perdy is left and has some big pawprints to fill. Do you have what it takes to be a Monkeybutt?

So happy you will be available to help folks along the journey, Charon. You always have been, and now it's official. Make sure you get the signing bonus Karen mentioned. 

Thanks for all you do, and for being such a great pawrent!

A perfect person for mod-pawding!

We’ve all known what a great asset you are to Tripawds and now it’s official!

Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman.

Yay!  I truly cannot think of anyone better to greet newcomers to this awesome site.  Charon, you have such a kind heart and totally represent everything that is good about this community!

Lisa and Zeus

Zeus was a Husky mix diagnosed with Osteosarcoma at age 11.  A visible lung met and suspicious spot on his liver meant a poor prognosis-six weeks was our vet's best guess. We decided to fight for our boy and his right front leg was amputated on 12/1/11. We did six rounds of chemo, changed his diet and spoiled him completely rotten. We were blessed with 10 great months after diagnosis. Against the odds, the lung met remained a single met and grew very little over those months. A wonderful furbaby with the most gentle spirit, he fought with a strength that we never imagined he possessed. We have no regrets...

Jac and Angel Spencer.  Spencer was 5.25 years old.

Charon, bummer about the signing bonus (there is a rumor going around that they are now trying to pawn off flying dutchmen as their signing bonuses…), but you are already a great ModPawd.  Thanks to your Angel Gayle for bringing you here, we all appreciate your kind spirit.

Scout: January 31, 2002 to November 7, 2011 Scout's diagnosis was "poorly differentiated sarcoma"; amputation 1/11/2011.  Scout enjoyed 9 fantastic years on 4 legs and 9 glorious months on 3 legs.  If love alone could have saved you…
