I’ll be There! May have to mute in and out, but will be there.

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!

Many thanks to everypawdy who tuned in to the Live Tribute call. What a surprise turnout, and heartwarming welcome from all. If you missed it, please enjoy the video recording below.

We apologize for the technical difficulties. Unfortunately we had to replace the music for Nancy’s beautiful tribute video at the beginning. Only after viewing the recording did we discover that the video was muted. We had no idea the audio was not playing for the video during the call. icon_rolleyes

Here is the original video, in all it’s glory…thank you Nancy! sp_hearticon2 We’re sorry we butchered the beautiful job you did. smiley5

We are thinking of hosting a quarterly Tripawd Angels Tribute call to honor all of those here who have gone on to The Bridge. What do y’all think?

I think it is a wonderful idea! I know some feel no longer a part of this amazing community after loosing their beloved pet, even though all are always welcomed.

By the way, you did not butcher anything. lol

Aww thanks Nancy, you are so sweet for understanding. We felt horrible when we made that discovery.

Admin and I are so grateful for the turnout and love that was shared with us, thank you so very much everyone. I’m sure Wyatt and Jerry were so pleased at the number of wonderful people who showed up! And even if you couldn’t make it, we feel your support and love. You are all in our sp_hearticon2s!

Even if we just have a chance to get together and catch up with each other it would be nice.  I surely can’t do it from work,  takes too much. 

Maybe next time we can introduce ourselves so we know who all is there.  I recognized a few,  but I’m sure others i know by their pets and so i had no idea who they were.  Maybe we should make little name tags like “huck’s mom” 😊😁🤣🤣🤣😻

I was wondering about the audio… I thought it was just me!

Another thing was that I wanted to ‘raise my hand’ but couldn’t find the button.  I posted in chat and someone tried to help me but the only button we could find was ‘save chat’.  No way to know I guess if it was just me or not- it did sound like a few people had the button.

Jackie- there is a way to change how your name appears on the screen, I found that while looking for the ‘raise your hand’ button icon_lol.  I did notice that a few people had changed their name to include dog/cat names.

Karen! Hahah I was paws1 when i entered and shuffled around frantically looking for rename.  I found it,  and I saw you!! 

I did one other(my first) zoom meeting which was how i learned the bigger the screen the more ppl you can see😊

I had a hard time with raise my hand too.  It wasnt there,  then it was.. back and forth.  Probably me..i also pinned all the contacts so i couldn’t move them🤣🤣

I think next time I’ll just name myself Huckleberrys Mom ❤

Still a learning curve but I thought it was really wonderful to “see” people I’ve befriended.
