Many, many thanks to new Tripawds member biffngab who just upgraded Our Tripawd Family to become the first official Tripawds Supporter blog ! The Our Tripawd Family blog shares the ongoing tails of not only one, but two tripawds – Biff and Gabby! It will now appear in the Random Supporters widget found at top left throughout the Tripawds web site.
Tripawds Supporters receive a full gigabyte of upload space for posting lots of photos too. They also get access to the WordPress plugins menu which provides enhanced features for their blogs. And, if that’s not enough, upgrading to Supporter status will automatically remove the ads displayed on your Tripawds Blog.
Finally, Tripawds Supporters have a special widget in the Appearance menu which lets them show their Tripawd Pride with this Supporter Badge in the sidebar of their blog. All of this – and the warm fuzzy feeling you get from supporting tripawds.com – is yours for just $25 per year! We’ll be writing in more detail about supporters, widgets, plugins and more soon, so stay tuned. In the mean time, review our Tripawds Supporter details details or ask questions in the Tripawd Discussion Forums.
If you are one of our Tripawds Bloggers, consider upgrading to be a Supporter and we’ll thank you here in the Tripawds News blog too! And if you’re not yet blogging about your tripawd, sign up today! (Existing members be sure to log in first for automatic recognition.)
We should have known Codie Rae would not stand for Biff and Gab upgrading Our Tripawd Family to be the first Tripawds Supporter blog. But after all her people have done for us here, we were stunned – and pleasantly surprised – to see Codie's Tripawds Rule! is now an official Tripawds Supporter blog .
You see, Martha and Ralph were not only responsible for introducing Wyatt Ray Dawg to my people. They have been generous enough to contribute to Tripawds in the past, and they are planning the upcoming Northern California Tripawds Party. So please drop by their blog to read all about the Life & Times of Codie Rae, Tripawd Girldog Extraordinaire, and leave them a gracious thank you comment for us.
You might notice how the Tripawds Rule! blog no longer has any banner ads. For details about this and other Tripawds Supporter blog enhancements, please read our Tripawds Supporter information

My husband and I are so grateful to Tripawd.com for providing us with these blogs! I never blogged before and it has really kept me 'kind of' sane during this whole ordeal. Being able to write about Jake and his story, posting pictures and videos... Our family and friends can keep up with his progress whenever they like. I also love being able to read about everyone else's stories and updates. It's like we're not alone in this very scary journey... Thank you so much to Jerry's mom and dad and all the other Tripawd members!!! We can't thank you enough!!!
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!
