This is exciting! I’m glad these days/times look good for everyone. Thanks for the September date correction Stacy, it’s on the 7th, Tuesday. Hope it still works.

So, here is a link to the official Tripawds Community Google Calendar.

You can go to the calendar and export the dates to whatever electronic calendar you use. I’m not 100% clear on how to do that from Google so if you are feel free to share your knowledge about that.

Let me know if this calendar and all the dates work for you. Each meeting will have a different Zoom ID that we will make public as the day grows closer, but anyone can get the IDs by going to the community calendar.

Zoom is really easy for anyone to use! Here’s a tutorial to get started:

We are happy to answer any questions about how Zoom works.

I will start an official new topic in the Forums. We will send out reminders as each hangout date approaches.  Yay! We are so excited about this!

This is so cool,  i am going to mark my calendar.  I tried that link and i don’t have permission to see the events.  

I will check out the tutorial,  thank you! In our last meeting i accidentally “pinned” the group and could not move the profiles around 🥴 never figured out how to unpin them 🤣 

I am finding each time gets easier,  just a learning curve. 

Hugs,

Jackie, David, Bo, Andy, Oscar, Phoebe, and the coolest feral tripawd kitty Huckleberry

I have all the dates and times on my calendar. March 3rd may be a little tough.  It will be two days before Brownies Angelvursary, so I may have a few tears.

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

TINA!!   I’m obviously  speaking  for myself, but I say YES,!  If you didn’t  mind contacting  them that would be great!!    I’ll do a follow up email as we get closer too.

Be sure and have your dogs in the Zoom thing!  Please!!

Oops sorry for the calendar glitch. I had to change permissions and omit the password/log-in instructions for each event. Admin reminded me of the very real possibility of Zoom bombing!

Once we get seven days out from each gathering, I will post log-in instructions here in the Forums. 

Here is a link to the official Tripawds Community Google Calendar.

If it still doesn’t work for everyone I’ll try Calovo Tina! Thanks for the recommendation. And yes, absolutely let Clare and Theresa know! Thank you so much.

Nancy don’t worry, we’ll hold you up on 3/3. It’s Tri-Day after all, and all our furbabies’ spirits are extra bright that day! 

Everypawdy OK with this?

Oh goodness, I just saw Mona’s banner… it’s beautiful and my eyes are full sp_hearticon2

Thank you Rene, I got in and added all the spots to my calendar. All of them, lol. I use Google calendar all the time for my planning so that made it so easy. 

Michelle, I have zoom on my pc, tavlet, and phone. I would be happy to (and could use the learning too!) do a couple of try outs with you. I have learned the settings pretty well and see where some of our problems were so even a phone call to walk through it together and then try it would be nice. 

Sally, I am ready and waiting sp_hearticon2 

It is nice to have something to look forward to. Zoom saved some of my sanity on Thanksgiving. I couldn’t be with the family, but having all of my goofy family together to see each other eased my heart some. We had some laughs, gave virtual hugs and kisses, it was pretty sweet. Even Bo joined in on the fun!

Thank you Rene and Jim, this is really wonderful sp_hearticon2

Hugs,

Jackie, David, Bo, Andy, Oscar, Phoebe, and the coolest feral tripawd kitty Huckleberry

Oh cool Jackie, thanks for letting me know it worked. I appreciate you offering a tutorial to whoever wants one, that’s a great thing to do!

I’m looking forward to this too 🙂

Love this – but I have zero zoom experience. I work the first one, but could probably join for 1/2 hour before I’d have to leave. Going to look at the above zoom tutorial to see if I can figure it out.

Paula

Nitro 11 1/2  yr old Doberman; right front amp June 2014. Had 6 doses carboplatin, followed by metronomic therapy. Rocked it on 3 legs for over 3 years! My Warrior beat cancer, but couldn't beat old age. He crossed the Bridge peacefully on July 25, 2017, with dignity and on his terms.  Follow his blog entitled "Doberman's journey"

Paula I’m so happy that you’re at least willing to look into it. I am happy to give you a tutorial over the phone this week if you’d like. Message me!
