Hey everypawdy, I’m bumping this post up because we’re making another call for ribbons. The Tribute Leash will be traveling around in mid-September so if you want to participate, please get yours to Karen in the next 2 weeks if possible. Once again here’s the scoop about the Tripawds Tribute Leash :

What a brilliant idea (I must have missed this going around earlier in the year!)
I will try to organise something this weekend and get it on its way on Monday in memory of Peda (I will send it express international and hopefully it will get there in time!) :)

The blog about this leash showed up at the top of my page just now. Has anyone sent in a Tri-Kitty ribbon yet? Steve would love to be the first!

Yea!  We’ve been waiting for the first kitty ribbon. 

Be sure you send me a PM when you put it in the mail so I keep an eye out for it (I don’t always check the PO box).

It’s not too fancy, but it represents Steve (and me) pretty well! I can’t figure out how to share pictures on the forums, so I’ll post them to Steve’s blog. 

I’ll drop it in the mail Monday or Tuesday and send you a PM to confirm! :)

I have been working on one for Murphy, but I may have to change my idea. Can’t find any green bean embellishments!

Kathi and Murphy

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!
