All year long, we welcome new parents and Tripawds in a bittersweet embrace. We’re always so happy to have new members, but the reason why they join us is devastating. This is the club nopawdy wants to join.
Most have cancer, some chased one too many cars, a few suffered at the hands of horrible humans, and others came into the world as Tripawds. Despite the tragedy that has befallen them, our Tripawd warriors fight on, and live life to the fullest despite adversity and illness.
Every new member who arrives here serves to remind us about what’s really important in life: loving the people around you, and having a good time even when life feels like the pits.
Many of our friends earn their wings far too soon. Their losses reverberate throughout this community, but in the spirit of our Tripawd Warriors, we fight on. With their lessons staying strong in our hearts, we are here to help newcomers, share information, find Tripawds homes, and kick butt to put an end to canine bone cancer.
We salute everyone who has ever shared a story about their Tripawd, joined us in the Forums or in the Chat, and blogged about their beloved Tripawd. Thank you for making Tripawds such a helpful and supportive environment for so many. This community would be nothing without you.
Let us take a moment to honor our heroic Tripawds, their siblings and close friends, who earned their wings this year:
- Caira Sue
- Havannah Jack
- Girl Noel
- Jersey May
- Captain Jack
- Shelli Belle
- Sadie Bear
- Kona Kai
Pawrents, please accept our deepest condolences for your tremendous loss. We are so very sorry.
If your beloved pup’s name isn’t on here, we sincerely apologize, it was a mistake. All of these heroes were recognized in our Coping with Loss Discussion Forum. We may have accidentally missed the names of beloved pups whose parents only write in their Blog, not in the Forums. Please share their names with us in the comments section below.
Thank you for being here everyone, we look forward to another great year ahead with our Tripawds family.
Fight on, Tripawds, fight on!
