Please add Emily She has been gone for almost 10 months and I would like to honor her. Thank you.
Debra & Emily, a five year old doberman mix, who was diagnosed with an osteosaecoma. She had a right rear leg amputation on May 19, 2009. On November 10, 2009 she earned her wings and regained her fourth leg.
I can't wait to see the finished product. I will surely be buying one and proudly honoring the thrivers, survivors and angels…
Chloe's Inspawration Comes Standard Tripawd Tribute T-shirt, is now available in the Tripawds Gift Shop !
The design includes 47 names and is available on various styles of short sleeve and long sleeve t-shirts.
FYI: To avoid confusion among members with dogs of the same name who may still be living, we've decided to remove indication of those who have passed for this version of the shirt. We've also taken some liberty with the artwork to create broader appeal for those who may not be walking in Los Gatos.
Many Thanks to Nicole for her creativity and coordination of this first custom Tripawds T project! Stay tuned for more details in the Tripawds Gifts blog.

Just to clarify, any future names (including Mika's) will be added to the custom shirt Chloe's mom is making to wear in the Los Gatos K9 Cancer walk, assuming there is room. The Inspawration Comes Standard Tribute T-shirt now availabe in the Tripawds Gift Shop only includes those names submitted prior to last Friday's deadline.

Annie lost her battle to lymphoma last Monday. I would be honored if you added her name. Thanks for this!
I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Maybe you would like to start a topic and tell us about Annie.
RIP sweet Annie. Run free at Rainbow Bridge.
Shanna & Spirit Trouble ~ Trouble gained her wings 3/16/2011, a 27 1/2 month cancer survivor, tail wagging. RIP sweetheart, you are my heart and soul. Run free at Rainbow Bridge.
The November Five - Spirits Max, Cherry, Tika, Trouble & Nova. 11/2008 - 3/2013 An era ends as Queen Nova crossed the Bridge.
GUESS WHAT????? 50 NAMES! That was my initial goal (I thought I would be lucky to get that many) before I had any clue as to how popular this shirt would be amongst the Tripawd Community… Good news though, I STILL have PLENTY of room!! I can probably fit ANOTHER 50 NAMES since I am just about halfway down my shirt back! KEEP THEM COMING!!!!! One month to go!!! The Deadline is October 10th when Chloe and I are in Los Gatos, CA walking for all of your dogs!
Remember, there is a special version of my shirt available in the Tripawd Store!!!

Dear Chloe's mom,
I was so excited to see that the shirt is available! I went right away and ordered mine. Shopping is good especially if it helps the Tripawds site!
While I was there I got another shirt, the black lab, front amp. I am thinking I might be able to put some white spots on the black lab's chest/tummy and socks to make it look like JD. Hope I am crafty enough. Can't wait for them to arrive, and I will proudly wear both of them, but especially the one you created with such love for all of us and our 'fur-children'
Thank you for your dedication to Chloe and all of us Tripawd families.
Angel JD's mom

Recap: We are walking for dogs who have been affected by cancer, those that are cancer survivors and those that have passed away due to cancer (+added to name for those no longer with us). We would be honored to write the name of your beloved friend on the back of our T-shirt in order to walk for them too! They don't need to be a tripawd, they can be any dog you have had affected by cancer! Just leave a comment with your dog's name! Every 10 names I add a new photo so be sure to check back soon! (up to 53…)
For those of you who were the lucky 47 to make it onto the Tripawd Chloe tribute shirt, be sure to check out the Tripawd Store (many options available for both Men and Women) to order one!!! This goes for everyone: Since Chloe and I are walking on October 10th for K9 Cancer, we suggest YOU walk in your own neighborhood that day (buying a Tripawd Chloe shirt is recommended, but not required )! This way we have love manifesting itself across the country because we are all walking for the survivors and for those who have crossed Rainbow Bridge!!!
PS. Can one of the admins make the neighborhood walk an event on the Tripawd Facebook?

I will be sure to add Zip and Mia!
I apologize if my writing was ambiguously written! (will go back and rewrite my paragraph above) Since I am doing a K9 Walk for Cancer, I planned on walking for dogs that have been affected by cancer, whether they are cancer survivors or have passed away from cancer. Unless, well I hope not all your dogs have had cancer.
Thanks for the names! They make it up to 55 so if I get 5 more names I will post a new picture!

Hi everyone. Claudia became a tripawed today due to osteosarcoma. She lost her front left leg. Can you add her name to honor her as well? Thanks so much! Thank you for letting people out there know that dogs too can get cancer and also be a survivor.
