This is such an amazing idea. I have just lost my wee tripawd and would love to send a ribbon. Where do you send it?

Christa, so sorry your wee tripawd has transitioned. When you can, please share more. We are all family here and all dogs and kitties matter to us.

Making a ribbon for my Happy Hannah was bittersweet, but I also found it comforting and felt very connected to her when I made it. Maybe you could post a picture of what you made before you send it off.

Sending you lots of love and hugs from your “family”.

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!

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!

Christa- please still send a ribbon, we would be honored to add it to the Leash.  It might take a little longer getting here, but the Leash represents Tripawd and Tripawd Angels from everywhere!

I finally found the PERFECT addition for Murphy’s ribbon. As soon as it gets here, I’ll get the ribbon in the mail.

Kathi

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!

This is a great reminder that I still need to make one for Shelby!! I’m heading to our favorite coast next week… perhaps my creative juices will feel inspired! 

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

I think it just may be!!😀 I was thinking of Murphy the other night. I was cooking green beans with 6 brown eyes staring at me. The only taker was Lucy. She ate 3. My husband said that he did not think dogs liked green beans. I told him, yep, some do. 😊

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.

I’m with you on that one. I had picked out Harmony’s ribbon, but haven’t done anything with it. It still resides here in my desk drawer.

 . . . (heavy sigh) . . .

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

I thought I would bump this thread today by sharing Maggie’s ribbon.

MagImage Enlarger

Maggie’s color was red so I started with a red ribbon.  One end has her name and dates, and the other end has Tri-Pug Power. I added a black ‘M’ charm to represent her coat color.  The two strips of red ribbon with bones and paw prints at the ends of the ribbon are strips off of her harness…the rest of the harness ended up on the Mag Tag. Under the dates it says ‘miss ya spud’, my favorite nickname for Mag.
