Wow!  You rock, Calpurnia!!! We'd vote for including ice cream in any celebration... oh!  And Holly says definitely cheese.  There are some great ideas here... I'll put on my thinking cap too!  3 years is AMAZING!!  What an inspawration!big-blink

Holly joined the world of tripawds on 12/29/2009. She has a big little sister, Zuzu, who idolizes Holly and tries to make all of her toys into tripawds in Holly's honor. And she's enjoying life one hop at a time!

This is amazing news!!  I am so proud and happy for Calpurnia......she is a icon.....a super Tripawd!!  Paris always loved a road trip, cheeseburger with pickle and a doggie ice cream treat whenever it was a special day!!  Enjoy spoiling her and congrats.

So amazing!! I loved that video of Calpurnia and Jerry and watching that amazing run. 3 years - wow again! So inspiring. You must be so proud of your girl.   I'm just speechless right now so I can't offer up any suggestions on how to celebrate but this does call for a huge celebration with everything her heart's desire! So let's see, that would include...steak, chicken, treats galore, hugs, kisses, ice cream, cheese, more treats, inn n out burger, more hugs & lots of kisses and lots of love! So wonderful! laugh

My sweet golden Mackenzie.  She became my angel on Dec 29, 2010 at the age of 8 1/2  although she was always my angel from the time we brought her home.  She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in Sept 2009 and officially became a tripawd (front leg) on Nov 5, 2009.  She will be forever in my heart and now she's running free with all of our other tripawd heroes.  I love you Mackenzie!

I am so glad for you both.  And I am really glad to read 3 years.  It gives me hope, hope, and hope.  Sammy is new so I don't know your pup but the video is amazing.  I guess what I might do is plan a get together with all his canine and people friends and shower him with love, good food, and a good time.  Let him be the star for the day and get it all on video!


I hope whatever you do you enjoy the moments.


Sammy and Elizabeth

Diagnosed with osteosarcoma in the right front leg 8/23/10,

leg fractured 8/27/10,

leg amputated 8/30/10


I couldn't begin to say how special Sammy is to us.  Living and laughing with and loving this wonderful boy is priceless.
