I have a new word to add to the Tripawd dictionary:

Pawday

Pronunciation: pô/dā

Function: noun

Etymology:

Early Tripawdish, from paw, meaning dog foot, and day, a period marked by the rotation of the earth on its axis.

1. The anniversary of the loss of a leg, and therefore a paw.

2. A day when each Tripawd Hero is honored and bestowed with many beef products, squeaky toys, and tennis balls.

3. Synonym for ampuversary

How about “Onpawlogist”. Ex: when Cadence goes for her Chemo, she sees the “Onpawlogist.” smiley
