Everypawdy here could use some good tidings of comfort and joy this time of year. Many Tripawds members may need a bit more than others out there.

Whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, or the New Year, please help spread some holiday cheer, by sharing your photos and season’s greetings…

Cheers,

~ Team #Tripawds

Merry Myrtle and Frankie want to join Wyatt Ray in dreaming avout all rhe Tripawd Angels who are, indeed, always here with us in Spirit. 

 We can only imagine  what Christmas  looks like at rhe Rainbow Bridge .   They decorate their own Christmas trees  with ornaments  of their hoomans!  Jerry has the honor of topping each of their trees with a picture of their very own  Earth Angels💖

They bark and meow with joy as they watch the Bridge Angels prepare their dinner table with mashed potatoes loaded with butter and gravy,   Tofurkey and dressing, warm pecan pie smothered with Cool Whip  with a sie of ice cream

Then, on Christmas Eve, Jerry gathers everyone together to howl Christmas Carols.  Once their Earth Angel’s  are nestled snug in their beds, each and every dog and cat fly free through the starlit nght and visit with their beloved hoomans.   They whisper in  their ear, ” I love you and you love me.💖  I am ALWAYS with you and you are ALWAYS with me!  Thanks for the best time ever!  You’ll wake up with a smile Christmas morning and a warm fuzzy feeling in your heart.  You’ll know I visited”😎

Sweet dreams to all💕💤

Every year at Christmas  I treat myself to a box of chocolate  covered  cherries to open Christmas Eve ( the really cheap stuff)

Merry Myrtle found ’em first.   I now have a few remains of slobber snd spit covered cherries.

Soooo far, no puking or crazy pooping….just sleeping peacefully next to her new baby” for Christmas…a hippopotamus.  Her favorit song….” I want a hippopotamus  for Christmas”.  Sing it now…it will make you smile😊

Just like it’s easier to rub the tummy if a dawg with three..it’s easy to sneak up on a blind dawg and take her picture…she can’t see ya’ comin ‘.😎

Merry Christmas everyone! We will have some fun pix of our pawty to share with you tomorrow!

Sally, that is So beautiful and I do believe it’s true. Your fur babies are just adorable laying next to each other! You can tell they have a bond.

Merry Christmas!

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

Nitro 11 1/2  yr old Doberman; right front amp June 2014. Had 6 doses carboplatin, followed by metronomic therapy. Rocked it on 3 legs for over 3 years! My Warrior beat cancer, but couldn't beat old age. He crossed the Bridge peacefully on July 25, 2017, with dignity and on his terms.  Follow his blog entitled "Doberman's journey"
