Our hearts are heavy and life is so, so boring without him. Thank you Tripawds Nation for keeping us upright at this very ruff time.
Wyatt Ray , you will never be forgotten.
The time came for my people to Let go and Let Dog. To follow the course of nature, and help me be free of these worn out earth clothes.

I know Wyatt Ray said not to be sad, but that’s pretty impossible reading this news. I am so sorry for your loss.
If Jerry started the Tripawd Tradition, Wyatt Ray did a beautiful job helping to carry that torch. You gave him an absolutely amazing life. And he – and you all – have done a tremendous service helping so many many people through this site. And now free of his earth clothes, he’ll continue to do from above.
Keeping you all in my thoughts.
David and Rocky (and Baxter now too!)
Rocky had his right front leg amputated on Valentine's Day 2017 after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma.
He joined the September Saints on September 3, 2017.
He is the toughest, bravest, sweetest and best friend I'll ever know.

I can’t help it. I am sad. Really sad. Wyatt may have been a wild child but he also was sweet. I am so glad I got to meet him. It’s always so so hard when their minds are 100% and their bodies fail. It’s not fair at all.
Sending hugs on this hard journey. Wyatt will send signs this I know.

Wyatt was amazing, and taught so many how wonderful life can be on three! I picture Jerry and Wyatt on the bridge telling each other stories about how lucky they are to have such a wonderful mom and dad!
We will miss you Wyatt, but we will never forget 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!
