This made me recall a sad case a couple of years ago when a recent tripawd ate a poisonous plant or weed jn their yard.  Maybe JERRY can reczll the czw, because it seems like it was sort of a “common” plant or weed.

Hmm. This was more than a few years ago but was it when Gerry ate the yew bush plant? He survived that ordeal, thankfully. Or was it when Frodo ate the toxic plant that grows in Australia?

When we saw a ranch horse go through colic (and later succumb to it), it was a terrible scene. Poor Gigi’s mom. She should definitely NOT beat herself up over this. 

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Oh dear Teresa, you are the most romantic, imaginative, nostalgic kook (in a very good way) I know!! Are Pedro and Woody in love? Or are they actors having romantic “naps”?

And the most important question – how did I not know Romeo and Juliet were Italian?? Lousy Canadian school system…

You, Pedro and Woody are so much fun. Thank you for continuing to share your travels and feelings of your bond with Eurydice. 

Hugs to all,

Kerren, my sweet guy Eli, and my cuddly diva Mona

 Kerren 😂 I Have to agree! 😂 Social studies eh!!!😩🤢 Although I have to say Romeo & Juliet was one of my favs!😜

Euridice! Sweet Angel!💫🌟✨⭐️ You took your Mum and Pedro and Woody on some wonderfully exciting adventures! You even stopped in and visited the country where I was born! 🇬🇧 You’re one of the best Angels ever!!! You do keep yourself busy at that beautiful  🌈 bridge… taking your Mum and your best friends on hoppy holidays, you’re part of the Welcoming Crew and all of your comfort that you give to your Tripawd family is amazing! Thank you for shining down on us all. 💫🌟✨⭐️❤️

Teresa, you are a beautiful portal for your darling girl to shine through! Stay connected my friend! 😘

Lots of love from Petra and her Clan ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
