Earlier today we were chatting with new Tripawds member pbunyon in the Chat Room. He was thankful for the advice we provided and said we could expect a contribution soon. Within minutes of him logging out of the chat, we received a generous contribution from Paul Phillips, who's dog Bronson will be undergoing amputation soon.

Please reply to Paul's post about Bronson with any advice and thank him for supporting the Tripawds community. And if you've every thought to yourself what a wonderful resource this site has been, please consider contributing to the 2010 campaign using the safe and secure ChipIn widget above so we can keep these forums and blogs online another year. Thank you!

PS: Somebody tell Comet to PM pbunyon regarding a video.

We owe a huge debt of gratitude — and a SmartyPants Video — to Deanndre Gabor (aka: Ginger) for her very generous contribution.

"We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your labor of love. Without it, we would have been at a total loss these past 3 months. Knowing that we do not have to take this journey alone has been a great comfort to us. But not only that, we have made some great new friends, learned how to care for our tripawd in the best way and most importantly laughed and cried along with the greatest group of 2,3 and 4 legged creatures there are!"
— Ginger, and pawrents Brian and Annie

We wanted to share this heartfelt comment Deanndre sent along with her contribution ... if you have ever felt the same way, please consider a small contribution to this campaign. If every member gave just a little, we would not need to rely on the generousity of a select few.

Okay, I have an offer to put out there...  I will donate $100 to the campaign in memory of Raven and in thanks to Jim and Rene's help in getting Miles, I only ask:

Can someone please piece together all the pics and some storyline to start out Miles new blog at miles.tripawds.com for me????  I can keep up on its regular posts, but the setup is over my head and I don't have time to dedicate to it right now.  Just got a new mac and I'm a pc person, so it seems I am spending way too much time just doing simple tasks for, like, ...the next year...

No need for a video if I can get help getting the blog started????  big-blink 

Dawn

 Rottie Raven, osteosarcoma at 8-1/2 years old, amputation in October '09 and in February '10 due to liver mets he went back to heaven where he came from.  raven.tripawds.com

Now I have Miles, rottie mix amputee from a shelter and traveled 1500 miles to find his way here through the Rescue Railroad thanks to tripawds.com.  miles.tripawds.com
