Thank you everyone for being great ambassadors for Tripawd Awareness wherever you go, every day of the year. We hope you and your three-legged hero are having an especially great Tri Day 2017.

What did you do today to spread Tripawd Awareness?

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

For some reason my people thought that taking me to a DOG WASH was a good way to celebrate Tri Day. I don’t get that AT ALL!

Oh Wyatt you look way too happy in that picture for us to think you didn’t enjoy your bath lol. Well at least your mouth looks happy the ears are probably telling a different story.   Mixed signals buddy 😀  Hoppy Tri day you beautiful boy!
