Daisy and I have been asked to have a booth at World Animal Day Minnesota on Sept. 25! According to its website: 

The World Animal Day Minnesota event is designed to give everyone who attends a deeper understanding of our animal world and a deeper appreciation and gratitude for all animals through:
  Playful Education
  Informative Displays
  Entertaining Speakers
  Thoughtful Reflection

I could use your help with (a) what to write on the little blurb on the website that promotes my participation (http://worldani… and (b) what type of literature, videos, promotional materials, etc., should I have in my booth that day?

Any and all ideas will be welcomed! idea Thank you.


Daisy, 12 years young, had left forelimb amp on 5/19/2010 due to osteosarcoma. She left her body behind and joined the other spirit tripawds on 7/16/2010.
So grateful for each day with her!
Lexi (Daisy's momma)

Here and Now

If you can set up a computer with Internet access, this website and Jerry’s video playlists would be wonderful educational tools to share at the event.

At the very least, please consider including this Tripawds flier display and info cards in your booth. Thanks for asking! Sounds like fun.

Are you going to talk about cancer in dogs and why amputation is a good idea? 

If you do, then gosh you have a wealth of info here that you can promote quality of a painfree life on 3 legs if having to deal with cancer.

I’d plagiarize stuff you can find here!  Maybe you can get some promo material, too – like Jim said.   Maybe even get a tripawd bandana to wear for both of you!? Maybe even print some pics of our tripawds and blow them up and make posters you can hang in your both. 



I’m sure if you get in a pinch, we’ll all help to give you ideas! You know who is really good at this stuff – RENE!
