Oh, I see Ty’s ribbon!!! I so needed to see that today. Even if it made me cry, I needed to see it. Thank you for this! Thank you all for the support, the friendship, the community, just everything!!! Yes and Ty is between Happy Hannah and Polly. All together on that end of the leash! I bet they are all hanging out together at the bridge!

TY GUY, Best Black Lab ever! Diagnosed  and had amp in January, 2014. Kicked MRSA's butt. Earned his angel wings on April 16, 2014. Run Free my boy and don't forget a shoe. Ty is a proud member of the " April Angels". Ty sent us Daryl, a Tripawd rescue in Sept. of 2016. Daryl is 5 +or -. We are also Pawrents to Chandler, a Border Collie mix who is 15 and 1/2, Lucy, a Corgi who is 7, 2 minis, 2 horses, and a feisty cat named Zoe. Zoe had a non skeletal Osteosarcoma removed in July 2015. No Chemo, she was at least 16. She is going strong although she is now completely blind. She is now close to 20 and her hobbies are eating and sleeping in front of her personal heater.

Sally – Shooter has one on there. I used the ribbon that was with the flowers my sister sent me after he crossed the Bridge. Your pictures and video eally show how beautiful it is. Hope to see it someday!

Spirit Shooter was a Miniature Australian Shepherd who was diagnosed with a MCT and had a LF amp 1/28/13 at 13-1/2 years old. 

Shooter crossed the Bridge on 8/28/13, his 7 month ampuversary and two weeks from his 14th birthday.

Yay! Steve’s ribbon is on the leash! We’re so honored to be the first to represent the kitties!

It’s hard to tell, but the teddy bears say “It’s a Girl!” I picked those out because she has a boy name, but she’s a girl! I want everyone to know, even people who have never talked to us, my Steve is a pretty girl!

I love this project so much! It’s among the things that make me so happy I found this community! I love you guys! 

Right rear leg amp due to injury from unknown cause (but don't tell her she's missing her spare...yes HER!)

Great to know the back story on the teddy bear! Steve is a beautiful girl indeed!!!

LUANNE AND SHOOTER! Okay, you’ve got to give.me a clue.where SHOOTER’s ribbon is on the leash!! Maybe start with the color and then approximate location. I am REALLY frustrated that I haven’t been able to find it! AND, when I was so fortunate to be it’s.Guardian for the VA. Tripawd Pawty, I went up and down that leash so many times just soaking in the love and courage of each ribbon made with such hearfelt passion, I did get side tracked many times as the tears flowed. I did specifically look for Shooter though, along with several others I wanted to spend just a little more time remembering. So help me find it please, this is really bugging me!

Thank you Luanne!!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

I always love seeing this beautiful Tribute Leash…… So many brave Tripawd heroes represented, and there is ALWAYS plenty of room for more. So whether you have a Tripawd angel over the Bridge, or an earthly Tripawd angel, this is such a loving way to keep their memory alive, and also their current life on earth in happy tribute. 🙂  <3

Love to all,

Bonnie, Angel Polly, Pearl, and Zuzu

I got everything together for Harmony’s ribbon, but every time I try to put it together I have to set it aside. The loss is still too raw. I will eventually have her ribbon added. Her angelversary is coming up November 1st. Maybe by then I’ll be able to pull it together. Maybe I can get Melody and Messhsa to help.

This is just the loveliest tribute. I’m so glad it exists.

xoxo 

Harmony became a Tripawd on 10/21/14 (MCT). She left us way too soon on 11/1/14.

That’s perfectly understandable Pam, we get it. Whenever you’re ready, it will always be there.

Yeah… I still haven’t been able to make one for Shelby …  I don’t know why. I know I have plenty of glitter to make it sparkle like she did! Maybe for her bday in October .. I just miss her so. So I get it, Pam! 

Shelby Lynne; Jack Russell/Shiba Inu mix. Proud member of the April Angels of 2014.

October 15, 2000 to April 8, 2014

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
