We've seen a lot of our Tripawd Warriors head tonthe Rainbow Bridge this month, and in recent months. Anyone who jas been on this site knows that our hearts break and our tears flow ecery single time. Their beautiful loves matter to us❤
At times like these, especially when so many seemed to jead to the Bridge in close proximity, that we need food news more than ever. Often members feel guilty about posting milestones or breakthroughs during this time. I know during the times we're sad on here, we relish good updates! WeNEED good updates! The dogs and cats at the Bridge have hige celebration pawties everytime we have victories.
Anyway.....rambling. I came across an old post of Jim and Rene 's that explain far better what I'm trying mto say. But bottom line, PLEASE continue with posts that make is smile, make us applaud!!
Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Awww thanks Sally. Yes, we all need the good news, now more than ever!
I'm so happy you found Jerry's old blog post that he wrote, that makes us happy. It's still as true now as it was then. Many people shy away from posting their milestones and good news, and they really shouldn't. We need the celebrations, it's what keeps new members hopeful and not living in fear of the worst. It's why Tripawds was started in the first place; we couldn't find good news about dogs with osteosarcoma, so we created our own little corner of the universe where it exists. Now that doesn't mean we deny the bad news either, but instead we roll with the yin and the yang of life, just like animals do. They are such great role models!
Tripawds is a community that is here for everyone during the ups AND the downs of this journey. Never feel bad for sharing either kind of news.

As just recently having a loss, I want to hear good news, and need to. So yes please post your good news, so Brownie and I can celebrate with you!
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!
