There was a notebook of photos honoring some of our tripawds, past and present. These are photos of some who are at the Bridge, but were DEFINITELY pawtying with us this weekend from their own Paradise!.

The little notebook is still in the works and just highlighted some so far, but ALL were in our hearts!!!

The pics were in pllastic sleeves ao quality not good (yeah...worse than my "GOOD poor quality" photos!)

Try to "hear" the happy version SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW that has the applae at the end! Yel! That applause is for them!

Love these. Thank you for including Murphy in the pawty.

Kathi and the Turbotail April Angel

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

SHELBY !!! I saw Shelby .... who's album is this? You have NO idea how much it means that her photos was there and she was included. She'll never be forgotten.... I am in tears ... thank you... this made my day. Even if I couldn't be there, my girl was in spirit and I know she was spreading glitter around...

LOVE!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Yes, Sally is one of a kind. So very sweet, love her!!! This book was on the table with the Tribute Leash. Rene and Jim, it was a very nice, thoughtful idea to have supplies there for people to add a ribbon if they had not already done so. Just one more way you 2 go above and beyond. Alison, I played a bit of Neil Diamond on the way down in you and Shelby's honor. All of your angels at the Bridge were being thought of and were watching over the Pawty. Heck, they were probably having their own pawty. Sally, this was a truly wonderful idea to take these pictures. Love from, Lori, Ty & the gang

TY GUY, Best Black Lab ever! Diagnosed  and had amp in January, 2014. Kicked MRSA's butt. Earned his angel wings on April 16, 2014. Run Free my boy and don't forget a shoe. Ty is a proud member of the " April Angels". Ty sent us Daryl, a Tripawd rescue in Sept. of 2016. Daryl is 5 +or -. We are also Pawrents to Chandler, a Border Collie mix who is 15 and 1/2, Lucy, a Corgi who is 7, 2 minis, 2 horses, and a feisty cat named Zoe. Zoe had a non skeletal Osteosarcoma removed in July 2015. No Chemo, she was at least 16. She is going strong although she is now completely blind. She is now close to 20 and her hobbies are eating and sleeping in front of her personal heater.

Aww thanks for sharing this Sally! It was so beautiful to see the tribute book in person, we've never seen it before. It was created just for our traveling Tripawds exhibit.

Lori - YAY on Neil Diamond!!!! You're not on FB, right? I went to see the MAN last week in concert at the hollywood bowl. It was the 2nd time I saw him live and I posted some of the stuff on FB! He's AMAZING for 74!!! Just amazing.... and while I didn't find any pennies ... I know my shelby girl was listening right along side me! 

Much love!

Well now, idpf that isn't Miss Shelby Strong saying "howdy", I don't know what is! Lori and I are listening nto him...you go to his concert...AND...wait...there's more!

I took a long winding two lane road for two hours all the way to Fredericksburg just to avoid interstate. Out of the corner of my eye I pass a side street sign that says Shel Run Rd.....I think of you and Shelby and smile! Have no idea where it was. Then, on the way back...catch the same sign out of the corner of my eye! Didn't even notice any other side street signs the entire trip up and back!

And Lori found a penny from Ty in the front seat of the car when she got ready to come here!

So very, very sweet. . . (sniff, sniff).

Harmony became a Tripawd on 10/21/14 (MCT). She left us way too soon on 11/1/14.

Pam, I posted behind your other post on the slideshow thread that at Deb's house we gave a shout out to HARMONY and everyone we could think of ...going way back.... like Pug Maggie and beforee

I think, but I'm not sure, that's a book Heather, Barret's mom started. It has current success stories also like kitty Jill. If that's the book she started, ahe asked us all to submit photos a while back. I'll see what I can find out and who is "in charge" so we can keep it going.and you can get Harmony in there.
