Around New Years, I was thinking it would be nice to have a thread where we can go to see a picture of the dogs we have come to know and love (not just my own, but him too!). I like to have a place to go to remind myself of Mac (jackiandmac - where have you been?), Yoda, Shilo, Tika and their many friends, plus the ones that passed before out time on tripawds that we'd like to meet (Wrigley were you this year; then there are the dogs that left us in earlier years). Is it okay to have a thread where we post one (at most two - I know selecting one and even two photos can be soooo hard)?

I'd like to see the mugs of dogs who have passed in earlier years, so maybe we should open this to spirit dogs from any year. Please include relevant dates of your pup's tripawdhood.

Now, I am a bit hesitant to start this thread, for I don't want to dwell on tributes to our deceased and have them dominate this website, plus it seems that many people have not been posting their good news. (So if admin or anyone think this is a bad idea, that's okay too.) But it might be nice to have one place to go and see the picture of our pups and the other pups.

Those of you with earthbound dogs, please do start posting more of your ampuversaries and good news. Those of us with spirit dawgs start to see just how important those are! They are to be treasured.

I will begin with a subsequent post.

I think that's a wonderful idea... I would like for the newbies to know what a great life our babies had, no matter how short... after becoming Tripawds! Smile

But I'll wait until Jerry (and Wyatt's) pawrents give the go ahead.

Angel Jake's Mom

Jake, 10yr old golden retriever (fractured his front right leg on 9/1, bone biopsy revealed osteosarcoma on 9/10, amputation on 9/17) and his family Marguerite, Jacques and Wolfie, 5yr old german shepherd and the newest addition to the family, Nala, a 7mth old Bengal mix kittie. Jake lost his battle on 11/9/2009, almost 8 weeks after his surgery. We will never forget our sweet golden angel… http://jakesjou.....ipawds.com ….. CANCER SUCKS!

Tazzie my man, we will ask for forgiveness rather than permission.  Small thumbnails below with links to larger photos.  Spectacular 405 days providing an eternity of memories.  Thirty two photos can be seen at Cherry's TriPawd Journey Photo.

Easter Egg Hunt – 5 months post-amp                               Month in Yellowstone – 7 months post-amp

    

Running in Side Yard – 10 months post-amp                      On the grooming table – 1 year post-amp

    

What a wonderful time it was.

It is good for us to see the great life that most of our 3-leggers had. But we also want to  remember the ones for whom things did not work out. I often think of dogs like Boinks and Hori, Angus and Big Barney. Such wonderful dogs. I am so sorry things did not work out for them.

Once or if we get started/continue, I'll try to zap (delete) posts like this that are just text (or ask Admin to do that if I can't), so we can keep this to short sweet photo tributes.

If we continue, there will be a backlog with lots of us posting. Then it should be used much less often and mostly by people wanting to look back at their favorite faces.

Great idea! it's not about mourning their loss, but celebrating their lives. Settong a limit to no more than two photos of each dog is also smart as that will keep the topic load time manageable.

With that said, here are a just a few photos of three legged friends we will never forget, who new members may have never met. Tripawds bloggers , please feel free to include links to your dog's blog for more photos.

Okay - now I know I promised I would not add text (but I promise also to delete this). Thanks for posting those - great photo of you Zeusy (why does everyone else forget that last syllable of your name Winker )

Please Genie and Wrigley. I want to learn more about you!

I love this idea. Thank you for the tribute.  ( Rene can you add my picture for me- I can email you one)

Wrigley March 17, 2005- March 28, 2009.  Osteosarcoma diagnosis and amputation in December 2008.

This photo is from one of our favorite trips. We took Wrigley on a road trip  to the snow the day after we found out her chemo had failed and she had lung mets. She showed us how to live each and every day to the fullest, no matter what.
