Hey everypawdy, we're hitting the road this afternoon and will be moving around a lot in the next week, so if you don't hear from us as regularly for a bit, that's why. We're working our way from Colorado over to Washington, where we expect to hook up with our Pacific Northwest Tripawds for the Puppy Up walk on 11/7. Can't wait!

Just wanted to let you guys know. Thanks for holding down the fort everypawdy. If anyone needs anything or its urgent, please contact a moderator since I do believe they should have our phone #.

On the road again…..

just can't wait to get on the road again ….

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Safe travels! Wyatt, make sure you keep everypawdy in line! If you run into Barney, or any Monkeybutt dogs,  show 'em who's boss!

Lisa, Spirit Sadie, and Ranger

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.

Anyone interested in following our travels along the way – or just keeping tabs on Wyatt so you can run and hide when he comes to town – may be happy to know that we have updated our snowbird roadtrip maps!

That is funny because when I saw the title to your thread I started singing “On the road again, I just can't wait to get on the road again”…

Best wishes for a safe journey, we can't wait to meet you and the energetic Wyatt!

Elizabeth and Sammy

Diagnosed with osteosarcoma in the right front leg 8/23/10,

leg fractured 8/27/10,

leg amputated 8/30/10


I couldn't begin to say how special Sammy is to us.  Living and laughing with and loving this wonderful boy is priceless.

Yeah, we love Willie. But every time we get rolling I can usually be heard humming the old tune by Canned Heat.

You know the first time I traveled hard
Out in the rain and snow –
In the rain and snow,
I didn’t have no payroll,
Not even no place to go.
