I meant good idea. Maybe admin needs to give us a Zoom Class…

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!

Karen I’m so sorry! Dang I wish we could have heard what you wanted to say. Feel free to share here.

Meanwhile, it sounds like if we can do a quarterly Zoom gathering, it would be quite a pawty! I’m so glad you’re interested. Stay tuned.

Chasing Butterflies.  I used that song for Bosch last year for his memorial video.  I know every word.  Sometimes I play that on the way home. It is beautiful video and song.

I haven’t gotten to watch the whole zoom video yet probably this weekend.

Write more when I get to watch the whole thing.

I’m sorry I missed it. I was hoping to be able to call in, but unfortunately I had another Zoom call for work. But you all and Wyatt Ray and Jerry were 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.

Awww thank you Michelle and David, we can feel the support and love and really appreciate it.

Michelle that song makes me cry, in a bittersweet way of course. It’s perfect.

I’m so glad that you recorded Wyatt’s memorial/tribute. It was great to hear about his feistiness. He sure took you for a ride including playing with you on zoom. He had both Rene and Jim fade out every now and then. How did he do that? I was expecting at least a hologram of Wyatt to appear at any moment.

How sweet that Wyatt was there for Rene’s father’s transition and he was able to enjoy his last few weeks being Wyatt with a heck of a lot of barking I’m sure.

I got a kick out of your embarrassment of some of his behaviours.  Yes, it is humbling. But all of those things he ate!!! Wyatt!!! I must admit I laughed.

Thank you for giving us this opportunity to get to know Wyatt. Yes, I had tears and laughter too.

Yeah Sally. All decked out in your glitter and greenery. It was lovely to hear you.

Huge hugs.

Thanks for the giggles Kerren! I’m glad you enjoyed it, how sweet of you to watch.

Wow a hologram of Wyatt would be amazing! We’ll get started on that, expect an appearance in 2021 😉

Eli, if you’re stress eating, do it the smart way with bonito flakes and tuna, not socks or road flares OK?

I finally got to watch the memorial video.  Such a great thing you did.  Can’t wait for you to write Wyatt’s story as well.  Thank you for sharing Wyatt with us.  I wish I could have been here to participate in the Memorial

Rene and Jim – I am deeply sorry for the loss of your beloved Wyatt Ray .  I’m so glad that I was able to join the memorial to honor him (and go back and watch the beginning before I joined).  There are so many things that I have learned from this Tripawds community and this service was no different.  I really appreciated hearing you talk about how you planned for Wyatt’s last days and explain why you did not share that information in advance.  Like all of us here, I have struggled with the thought of planning for Griffin’s transition and the clarity of purpose in how you approached that decision was really helpful for me to hear.  Thank you for all you give to us in the Tripawds family and may the memory of Wyatt Ray be a blessing. sp_hearticon2 Stacy

Michelle, we knew you were there in spirit. I’m glad you got to watch afterward, thank you.

Stacy, your words mean more to us than you’ll ever know. Thank you for watching and sharing your thoughts, we really needed your sweet comment today, it’s been a ruff morning. ((hugs))

Beautiful tribute. Thank you for sharing. We have a digital picture frame that for the past 2.5 yrs has been our tribute to Gabby. I have tears just typing that. A quarterly tribute to all who have passed is a lovely idea. 

I know I don’t participate very often but I do read the newsletters and appreciate you all.

Still heartbroken. 💔

Awww Christine. Thank YOU for your lovely note, we are touched that you watched.

We will get the quarterly tribute off the ground in the next couple of weeks and would love to celebrate Gabby’s life with you “in person.”

(((hugs)))

We totally understand the heartbreak. You are not alone.
