Ok Jerry,

As a reminder Here is Kenzie her first day in her forever home on 8/22/2020.

Here is Kenzie playing with her favorite toy from Santa.  This is great for building strength.  I think it would be good for a Tripawd.  Kenzie doesn't stop playing with it and it also gives me a break!

  

What a transformation!sp_hearticon2Blesssp_hearticon2

Hi All,  When Brownie passed in 2020 I met another member here, Mom to Tyson.  When Brownie was going through this journey Tripawds was so kind and donated a new harness to Brownie.  When Brownie passed, I thought I should move it forward, and donate the harness to another member.  All that I asked is if there comes a day when you no longer need it, please send it back to me.  Tyson being a front leg amputee as well his mom thought Tyson could really use it.  I sent the harness.  Well, this morning I checked my mail and saw a package.  When I saw who the package was from I knew that day has come.  Tyson lost his fight on 7/1.  Tyson was a rescue who started his life in a horrible situation including pit-bull fighting.  But thanks to Lana Tyson's life took a huge turn and was filled with care and love.

I would like to continue and send the harness to another member who may need it.  All that I ask if a day comes when you no longer need it, send it back to me.  Brownie had such a huge heart and always shared his toys with his pack members.  In fact I know he agrees with this because today his banner popped up.  Then Happy Hana's banner popped up, and then Brownie again.  You see, Happy Hana's mom and I believe that those two are working together on the bridge. The harness is size large to extra large.  Below is Brownie modeling the harness.  If you could use it for your tripawd just send me a direct message.

Lana, I am sorry about Tyson but I know he had an incredible life because of you.  What you told me when Brownie passed is so true.  You never get over it, but I have found you just get on with it.  I lost my phone and no longer have your number, and I have a new number.  I searched my emails but can not find you.  I put your note in the book you sent me. I searched for Tyson on this site but got over 8k hits.  So if you see this please reach out.  I would love to talk to you and just remember Tyson knew he was loved. sp_hearticon2

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!

Ohhhh Nancy, this is such a beautiful post on so many levels.  Of course, the " passing on of the harness"  was splendidly  coordinated  by your sweet Brownie♥️Tyson♥️and Happy Hannah♥️

And yes, Brownie always had a huge heart and sich a gentle spirit (unless he needed to protect you...then watch out!). 

Without question, Tyso had an earth life with so much love and care....a life he could never have had without Lana bringing  him k to her heart and home.

Brownie  has started a lovely tradition  that shows how his generous Spirit continues to touch lives.  And when returned to you as this tradition  expands, it can also simply mean that it didn't  fit, this also another reason for return.

Maybe you could even put some sort of "badge" to honor Brownie and then add a "heart" anytime it's returned.

Again, so very kind of you to "give back" in such a lovely way that actually  physically  helps Tripawds be all they can be.

Much love to yo and Lana too!!!!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

PS.Love seeing the video of handsome Brownie styling the harness!.

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!

Nancy, thank you for the beautiful post to honor Angel Tyson and Spirit Brownie too. I'm sad to hear about Tyson, and hope that his mom will come back so we can honor his legacy.

What a nice surprise. It's so kind of you to come here to share their stories, and pass along the harness. I can't think of a better tribute to them, and a wonderful way to share their magic. You just know that their fur is permanently stuck on the harness, it's like pixie dust! Thank you for this act of generosity. 

You might want to post in the Tripawds Angel Exchange. It's a Ruffwear Flagline harness , our #1 favorite. Just the other day someone was looking for one, so maybe they will see it soon. 

It's nice to see Kenzie too! How are Max and Sassy doing? You?

Sally, I love the idea of putting hearts on the harness for each dog. I wish I was crafty so I could add their name. The only downside is when I see the package returned I gasp, as I did today.

Jerry, I will make that post and look to see if anyone needs one. It is such a great harness. It's three years old and still looks new. Max is getting up there and his back is getting worse. He can't go on walks cause he just doesn't have the strength. I will walk him down the drive and he is done. But he likes to go out and smell the flowers. Max has always liked flowers. Sassy is still as bull headed as ever! Yha has not changed. Lol

Seeing my sweet baby boy's picture just broke me down. Thank you for the kind thoughts. My heart is shattered. Tyson was larger then life. He was so brutalized as a pup but forgave and loved hard. He never ever gave up but the day came where I had no other options and the pain in his remaining leg was uncontrollable.  I've always known when it was time to say goodbye but he was different.  My other dogs are grieving. The sadness is so heavy. My Rottie went and laid in the last place he used to lay outside and would not move. My other special needs pittie wont come out of the closet. She adored him. They were both special needs and bonded. I was blessed with such love. My boy Tyson is at the bridge now with the rest of his crew. Now you can finally run with the rest of them. Until I see you again baby boy.

My Rosie dawg was a rescue.  You never know exactly what happened to them but there are signs sometimes.  She had scars where her fur barely grew and they were white stripes on her arms 😭

I got her because i was a vet tech and animal control caught her after three days of chasing her before she ran head on into a car.  

She passed early like your pup, but before she shed her earth clothes she knew true unconditional love.  She still owns a huge piece of my heart,  and she has sent me others that needed love.  

I tell you all of this just to let you know i understand and have compassion for your love and pain. 

Your other furbabies are grieving.  Please let them soothe you as your love soothes them.  Rosie was my❤️ dog but she sent me others that needed love and your furbabies need your love now more than ever.  

I am so sorry for your loss.  I'm sending you huge hugs and love. 

Nancy,  thank you so much for sharing and paying such a heartfelt tribute to Tyson. I know you and Brownie worked together on all of this.  Love you,  girl ❤️

Hugs,

Jackie, Bo, Andy, Oscar, Phoebe, and the coolest feral tripawd kitty Huckleberry

Lana, we understand what you are good through. And as you told me you never get over it. Brownie has been gone two years and five months and I still cry. These days I even cry over a commercial. But you do learn to get on with it. Yes, I still cry but smile as well as I remember the good memories of Brownie who I always thought  I should of named Bozo. 

You helped me when Brownie passed which I will always be grateful. We are all here for you and feel free to call me anytime❤️

We would all love to hear the happy stories of Tyson when you are up to it.   And thank you for returning the harness. Now another tripawd can use it and a bit of Brownie and Tyson will be there too Cheering the next tripawd on.❤️

Our Dear Lana♥️. We know there are no words.  We know your world has stopped and your heart is shattered  into a million pieces.

You are surrounded  by an extended  family who can understand  the depth of your grief, the depth of your loving bond. 

We also understand the joy, the care, the happiness and the love you surrouded the "Little Pittie"  from the first moment you took him into the safety  of your home.  You healed his visible and invisible  scars and showed him what love felt like.  

Tyson had a rough start, but he was clearly  born to be with you.  You wiped away a  horrible start to life and gave him the life that let Tyson bloom into the loving happy boy who only knew joy and love and security with you.

Because Tyson trusted you, he knew, as hard as it was for you, that when the time came, you would free him from his earthly body that no longer served him.  He KNEW you loved him that much.  He picked you years ago to free him from a miserable beginning and to free him when he coud no longer be Tyson.  He loves you furever for that.

Your heart is so big and so giving.  You have helped Tyson and your other two puppers to have a life of love and happiness.  You have been their Earth Angel.  I know they are grieving  too.  I also know that there are times they def feel Tyson's presence.  Whether it means laying in a place he used to lay, or going to a quiet pace in a closet where they can feel his energy around them.  And I have no doubt Tyson will connect with you in a very Tyson specific  way. Don't  discount  the power of Spirit energy.

We are soooo grateful  for the privilege  of knowing this Mighty Warrior "Little" Pittie named Tyson.  He touched our hearts from day one.  And he clearly  touched the hearts of everyone  who had the privilege  of being in his presence.  I remember  the video of him swimming and how he was sharing kisses when he was getting out of the water.  Such a happy  boy.  And remember that,  YOU gave him a Happy life.

Surrounding  you with sloppy wet kisses and Tyson's eternal light that can never be dimmed

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

Lana, I'm so sorry, my heart goes out to you and your furkids. The grief feels like it will never end, as that saying goes, when you love hard you grieve hard.

Tyson started life so unfairly, but he was surrounded by such love during the last part of his life, that his spirit will thank you again and again in so many ways. He will never stray from your side, he's just changed form into something so beautiful, so eternal, that there are no words to describe it. But you will absolutely know it and feel his presence when he is visiting you, and wants to comfort you.

Know that we are here for you and if you want to talk, share stories about Tyson, whatever don't hesitate to reach out OK?

So, Brownie's harness (donated by Tripawds) when no longer needed went to Indiana to Tripawd Tyson.  Unfortunately, it was no longer needed, and it was returned.  Now Brownie's harness is on its way to Florida to help Tripawd Jaxsa.  Jaxsa's mom also named Nancy is looking forward to receiving it.  I hope with a little help from Brownie and Tyson's sprit the harness will help Jaxsa to keep on Hoppin.sp_hearticon2
