With this great weather, just took Maggie to the local park. We worked out a little over on the skate board area. She did great walking up and down the cement slopes and steps. After that, we walked around the park. Looking forward to future trips to the park. 

Nancy, is Brownie up to another meeting? If so, lets plan on it.

Sure. Brownie getting a little frisky with this weather.

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!

Well, it's been awhile checking in. Although, my dad does check in at least weekly. This "stay at home" is crazy and nice at the same time. It's hard to just stay home but is nice having the family together. We've been going on walks around the neighborhood and today, we are planning on going to the park for a walk about. We are planning on a trip to New York State in June, but we are in a wait and see mode. This would be my first trip and we are looking, hoping, to go. Mom and dad rented a house on Seneca Lake with few steps for me to take to and from the house and lake. Hopefully we will be able to go.

On another note, there is another tripaw in the neighborhood. We have not been able to meet them, but will keep on trying.

Maggie it's sooo good to hear from you! How terrific to know that you and your people are healthy and together, especially right now. I sure hope you get to take that trip too. And boy that would be cool to meet up with that Tripawd eventually. Show 'em how life on 3 is done, pretty girl!

Hi Maggie,

You make sure you keep your mom and dad safe. And just wanted to thank you for taking time to meet my Brownie! I know he loved meeting another dog just like him.

You are so fortunate to have been adopted by a mom and dad that love you so much, so you be sure and take care of them. One day maybe we will be able to meet again. Until then take care and stay safe.

Its been awhile but I am back. Since Maggie's last post, she went on her first road trip last September. We drove up to upstate New York and spent 2 weeks at a lake house on Seneca Lake. She had a great time and really enjoyed the cooler climate.  As soon as I can figure how to upload photos, I will. The directions provided on this sight are not helping. Maggie is doing well and enjoys taking walks, especially when we go see Mr. Kittens, a one eyed cat. They really get along well. 

It will take awhile, but I will check out the newer posts and try to get to know everyone.

Hi Dave! Thanks for returning to let us know how Maggie is doing! That is terrific news and we cannot wait to see photos, especially of her and Mr. Kittens. Sounds like she's living the good life we hope every Tripawd will get to enjoy.

I'm happy to upload photos for you, sorry for the hassles. Just email some to me and I'll get them in this post.

HIi guys! Beautiful pics! did Maggie go swimming? Ive been thinking about all of you wondering how you were doing? By the pics it looks like you are.

I got a lab mix puppy, and she does keep me busy!

Hope to see you at the Zoom get together!  It is today, 1:00 our time.

Sorry about missing the Zoom meeting. I had an accident with our computer on Friday and had to get a new one. We got it up and running about 2 PM today. We also had our kids and grandsons over for dinner. We were bust today.

Glad to hear that you have a new member to your family. We need to try to get together sometime. 

As you can see, Maggie is doing well. She did well on the trip to NY and we plan to do more in the future with her.

Merry Christmas and stay well.

Dave & Maggie
