 Thank You to Raina and Spirit Indi,

 They passed along Spirit Indi's stroller to Tasha. We had been looking to get Tasha a stroller so she could go the the flea markets with us, we wanted her to be able to get out and be able to be more social. One very important thing we want to do was to get Tasha down to the river to swim again, she loves the water, now with the stroller it won't be to long before she will be swimming again. Her first impression she looks a little scared but by the time she got back from her first walk she had to be bribed with goodies to get her to come out. The next day, well the picture says it all!

 Thank You Raina and Spirit Indi for your generosity, we are so grateful.

Tasha looks pretty comfortable in that stroller!  I can see why you had to bribe her to get out of it!!  Can't wait to hear more Tasha/stroller stories. (with photos of course!).

Pawesome... we're so happy to see Xena's stroller helping so many Tripawds. Many thanks to Spirit Indi and Raina for paying it forward.

That is one awesome stroller, it just keeps on giving. 

Tasha looks fab in her cool new ride.  I'm so happy it is giving her a bigger variety in life.  I'm kinda thinking I'd like to be pushed about in a stroller at the flea market 🙂

I love it! Tasha loves it! You love it! What a happy day! I'm still hoping to get together one of these days.

Sadie is my 9yr old Rott/Shepherd mix. Diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her right scapula 1/28/10. Our brave girl had her amputation 2/13/10 and her last chemotherapy on 6/6/10. Unfortunately, a tumor appeared in her back right leg and on 10/7/2010 Sadie's earthly journey came to an end.  On 10/24/2010 we adopted Ranger, a handsome Rott/Lab mix tripawd (got hit by a car) I think Sadie sent him to us.
