Be sure to check out Romeo's Story to learn about how this happy pup is now part of a nine-legged family.
A belated thanks for the welcome and shout-out. This website has been a lifesaver for us!
Romeo is now two weeks post surgery and doing great. He really seems to have some of his spark back. Romeo says,
"Now that my human sister went back to school , maybe my mom will finally have the time to post blog #2!" And we hope someday we can figure out how to make our blog fancy like Cairasue's.........
Also, a belated Welcome Wyatt! You remind me of my wild puppy days!

I still haven't figured out how to set up a blog for Shelby.
Sorry for any confusion, we'll be officially announcing all this very soon with plenty of details, tips and instructions. In the mean time, you really can start blogging for Shelby in minutes ...
Assuming you are currently logged in, simply visit the Tripawds Blog Sign-Up page. If you are logged in, you should be recognized as an existing member of Jerry's main Tripawds blog. (If you are not logged in, log in and try again.) You will be given the option to "Get Another Blog" ... simply do so by selecting your desired blog domain (i.e. shelby.tripawds.com) and title. You will then receive an email at the address used to register here at Tripawds with a confirmation link for your new blog.
Another simple way to start is to simply type your desired blog domain into your browser and take it from there. Once your blog is created, you will have a sample post page and comment – all of which you can edit, or delete and start from scratch.
Be sure to preview your blog's default theme for simple instructions and links for uploading a blog avatar and setting other options. Our WordPress tutorial videos will also help you get started making the most of your blog. If you have any further questions, just ask in the tech support forum.
We sincerely apologize for not being more clear, but all in good time. The big announcement is coming soon. We've been fine-tuning things behind the scenes and wanted to give forum members a head start with their new Tripawds Blogs!
