Today is one year since the Bridge got a new sheriff, Codie Rae. We are thinking of she and her people today, and remembering all the good times we had with a true one-of-a-kind Tripawd. She was the best combination of tough and tender, rowdy and occasionally serene.

Codie knew how to put everyone in their place. And she also knew how to throw a great pawty.

if it wasn't for her, Tripawds Foundation probably wouldn't exist today. She and her humans gave us the giant nudge we needed to start helping Tripawds in a bigger way, and for that we are furever grateful.

Codie Rae, we will always treasure the time we spent together. See you on the other side beautiful girldog.

Wow, I can't believe it's been a year. I am sure the sheriff is keeping everyone in line at the Bridge. ❤

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!

There will never be another Codie Rae. It is so quiet now without her, and it is almost boring. I remembered today that iit was 10 years ago that we were in LA for the music video and Codie did her write up of the event a few months later: https://codiera.....1602885744

Without her our Tripawds adventure would not have happened. What a ride it has been!

Hey Codie, it's just like old times up here, ain't it? 


You were a bright star in your earth clothes and you are a comet up here at the Bridge. Keep on shinin' crazy girldog.

We can't believe it's been a year. Sometimes time goes by so fast, other times it crawls. Our hurt lasts a long, long time. We all know how very special these TRIPAWD Dogs are. They don't like us being sad, but we can't help it.

Who's gonna patrol our future TRIPAWD Parties? Without her firm paw on all dogs and their peeps that attend, it's going to be pure "Pandemonium," with a capital letter P.  Rosy, our new TRIPAWD, has a "tendency to take over", poor Emmy Lou and Dusty have learned she runs a pretty taut ship around here. I think it's called "short dog syndrome".

Codie Rae was the last of the original TRIPAWDS of the Nor-Cal group. We've been meeting together for 10 years, we've become good friends. We've been there for each other celebrating and supporting each other. The Nor-Cal TRIPAWDS peeps need to see each other again. Our group needs to be able in person to share stories and precious memories, hug each other and shed tears. We'll bring plenty of tissues. 

Everybody be careful and get through the Covid thing and let's get together again. smiley16

Yep, the world has been changed in so many ways and without Codie here to manage things, it’s upside down and spinning round! We sure miss her.

We can’t wait for the day we are all back together again, and look forward to meeting Rosy the Regulator!

That Codie Rae sure knows how to continue to hsve a big presence  here.  Nope,  being at The Bridge hasn't changed that at all.  That's how Legend's roll.

I've  enjoyed following the antics of all the Oaktown Pack, as well as the NorCal  meet  ups and all those pictures of so many beloved members.  I can only imagine how The Bridge pawties everytime  one of the pack joins  and Codis Raype is leading  the chorus.loudly, very, very loudly!..

Love and light

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

I know why I missed this.  January was a very hard month for me.  I agree with Linda.  The world was a better place with Codie Rae.  Sorry I missed your Angelversary.  Sending your pack love and hugs
