Her Retired AvatarComet - 1999 to 2011

She departed us unexpectedly  January 23, 2011 at the age of 12 1/2.

She was born with a deformed front leg and a tripawd all of her life.

For a $50 contribution - 1 video.  Looks like he gave $100 (2 videos).  Or maybe he wants socks?

Gayle and Holly are all knitted out! No more socks and mittens are available. And for your sanity, we suggest one movie per contribution of $50 (or more) ... but that's up to you. Thanks again!

It's been a few days since we've received any campaign contributions so we wanted to send out a special dedicated thank you to Spirit Cherry's pack. It was Bob and Emily's very generous contribution which gave the ChipIn widget above its recent bump.

If you have ever felt grateful for the advice or support provided in these forums, please consider helping us end this campaign ahead of schedule with a safe secure PayPal contibution using the widget above. Or, take the Tasha Challenge for an easy way to give a bit more.

Hey Buster, there's a lot of pics of you floating out there!  Don't tempt Smartypants Productions with sassy remarks!

The other places I posted probably won't be seen by many, so one more time big-grin:

 I've pledged to donate $10 per tripawd attendee to the Madison-area tripawd pawty on July 10th.  Another reason to come, midwesterners (and heck, everpawdy else who possibly can!).  If you can't come, consider rolling the dice with me and making a pledge per tripawd as well.  Who says fundraising can't be fun?!  Or at least whimsical.

I'll be posting the total number of attendees (along with video and pics of the pawty) on Gerry's blog as soon as I can after.

Details about the pawty are here: http://tripawds.....rea-party/

Gerry has been a tripawd since 12/16/2009.

He was a shelter dog with a mysterious past and an irrepairable knee injury.

Videos and pics of Gerry's pawesomeness can be found at: http://gerry.tripawds.com

Hey Gerry,

Great Idea!!!!

The Nor Cal crew is having our monthly Tripawd meet up on the same day in Mill Valley.

Since you sent Barney to us I feel compelled to follow your lead.

I will also donate $10 for each Tripawd and each Spirit Tripawd that shows up at our meet up.

Y'all are too sweet! We at least hope you pass the hat so those contributions don't all come out of your own pockets.

And ... Rockyandme (aka: Michelle) and Dyre's mom Kimberly both qualify for a Smartypants video with there generous contributions. Kimberly had the following to say about her contribution...

"Thank you for the web site information. I appreciate your support and love of Tripawds."

 Fortis' loving, dependable, and only babysitter Grandma Fay challenges all GrandTripawrents to donate .50/lb of their favorite Tripawds weight! Oh, she said why not just round up the Texas way while we are at it and if you own one of those adorable toys just use your own body weight. winker

Example: Dog A has a body weight of 62lb.

62 X .5 = 31 which when rounded up equals $50. And that qualifies you for a smartypants video!

Many thanks to today's Tripawds Community Campaign Contributors!



Scott Neely purchased a Ruff Wear harness for his Golden Retriever Billy who underwent amputation last Tuesday to relieve the pain in his right front leg arising from osteosarcoma. He discovered the campaign and thanked us for maintaining this site with a thoughtful contribution.

Neil Riley is the Grandpaw of our favorite spirit tri-pug and gave very generously in honor of Maggie ...

"I want to thank you for your site. Your site helped karen and the rest of us through some very emotional times."
