Calling all Chicago area Tripawds! The PuppyUp Foundation is holding a big walk in Chicago on September 16. This fundraiser event replaces the walk that used to be in Wheaton. It promises to be bigger than ever. The Tripawds Foundation just secured a booth space so we'll be there. Will you? Hope so!

Our trusty local ambassador Cadence and mom Heather just volunteered to manage the booth set-up and staffing, but of course extra volunteers are welcome to help out. More paws on deck at the booth is even more beneficial since there will be more attendees at this walk. 

Team Tripawds also needs a Team Captain to help raise funds. Ready to lead the way? We will back you up 100 pawcent! We'll help you get the word out to the world however we can. Just raise your hand here so we can get the ball rolling.

PuppyUp! Tripawds, we're gonna kick cancer's butt!

Visit the PuppyUp! Chicago Walk Website for location & details.

I have set up a Team Tripawds page, as well as my own Otis and Tess page.   The website is REALLY clunky - I have not been able to fully customize my page or to customize our team page at all.   I've sent an e:Mail, hopefully they will get this fixed. 

Jerry - Any chance you can send me a Tripawds logo to use on our Team page, or even the picture above?

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

Here and Now

Please provide a link to share so we know where to send people! big-grin

as well as my own Otis and Tess page...

Two Pages?

Any chance you can send me a Tripawds logo to use on our Team page,

What size/shape?

Small Horizontal Tripawds Logo

Medium Horizontal Tripawds Logo

Large Horizontal Tripawds Logo

Square Tripawds Logo

Let us know if none of these do the trick, or please provide desired dimensions so we can create a Team Tripawds logo for the walk..

or even the picture above?

Wow, Admin.   You act like you are talking to someone who understands who technology and social media works. . .

The link to our Team Tripawds page is (hopefully, cut and paste will work here):

https://puppyupwalk.org/chicago/support/#TeamTripawds

Personal pages (like my Otis and Tess page) are set up under the Team Tripawds page, so each of us can share a photo and our Tripawds story.  

Once again, however, the website is wonky right now, so I can add our pictures (Thanks for the tip on how to grab the Wheaton picture - I used that one instead of a logo), but not any customized text right now.  I will let everyone know when PuppyUp gets this resolved.

I got the Team Tripawds page customized (had to set the "View" at 75% to access the "Save" button).   Take a look, and let me know if you want any edits.

HA! Welcome to my world!! 🙂

Christine, you've done an excellent job of setting up the PuppyUp page AND the Team Tripawds page!!! Your tribute to Otis and Tess with that picture is so sweet. And Mr Gator got a well deserved nod too!

The group picture you posted of last years humans a d their heros, present or up at the Bridge, was quite touching and heartwarming.

THANK YOU AND HEATHER for getting this going! 🙂

Love

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

PS. 'Scuse my "duh"'question.....So a donation is made on that form...but is there a PayPal click thing I'm missing?

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

If you go to the PuppyUp Chicago page, you can click Donate, then Support Team, and then search for Team Tripawds.  Once our team shows up, hit Donate Now.   This will take you to a form - once you fill it out and do the "I am not a robot" thing, it will take you to the page where you actually pay.  You can do the same thing by going to our team page.   If you want to join the team and have your own page (so you can load a picture and story), click on register, search for Team Tripawds, and then join us.   Sign up as a fundraiser if you are making a donation - that way, you won't be charged a walker fee.   Does this help?

This just in... the PuppyUp Walk is almost here!

We just tried donating to officially join the team and the website is throwing errors. Has anyone else had issues? I will check with the folks at PuppyUp.
