Jist watched this and had me smiling the whole time!  You did an excellent  job of covering a variety of topics, as well as guiding everyone to the appropriate  blogs, sites, etc

How bout posting some close ups of the jewelry you showed on  the forums.  

Loved the reminder to be creative when it comes to ways to support Tripawds .  Who would jave thought to teach your dog to paint to help Tripawds!!

Seeing a cameo was….no offense…….the best part!!!   I mean, seeing that sweet voy (he and Jim have matching  grey muzzles) and knowing  he ocassional  hete a  treat.nest news of the day!!!!!

,Love to you both💜

Wow! Just got home from work and got to see your video. Wyatt!! You rocked it handsome boy! I love the ideas for fundraising, would also love to see some of that jewelry close up!

Huckleberry is sitting with me giving me headbonks and says hi! He is also trying to help me type…smiley5

I wonder if a good subject to talk about might be pain management , and maybe even how to help head it off before it becomes a problem? The importance of timing the doses so that there is a lesser chance of breakthrough pain? We all know it isn’t an exact science, but for the people that don’t realize “just stopping” because their pet is doing awesome, only to see a day later that they made a mistake and now they have to deal with managing even more pain. It seems to come up so often with recovering pets. 

I saw Kaiserin paint a while back, maybe on IG? OMG she is just an amazing dog! And the offer of donations is just fantastic. The paintings are reasonable and adorable, they would make great gifts for animal lovers sp_hearticon2 

Thank you guys for taking the time to make the Tripawd Tuesday on Facebook video. I cannot watch it live from work, but it was great to see when I got home. 

Hugs,

Jackie and Huckleberry sp_hearticon2

Have you thought about discussing why pets are tripawds? Cancer, injury, birth defects. It seems like someone is always asking me “Did your dog get hit by a car”?

Just a thought…….

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!

We were total dweebs but I’m glad you had fun watching! Thanks everyone and you too Huckleberry!

OK so far the topic suggestions are:

  • Why pets become Tripawds
  • The importance of pain management
  • And more jewelry pics!

Do you think that these chats would be more useful if we talked about one topic only, or should we keep highlighting the blog stories and doing a topic of the day kind of thing?

I really like how you’ve done it.  Really, the choice should be however it makes it easier for you.  It was really nice to hit a few different things.. what’s easier for you to make it work?

Whatever that way is… run with it. I noticed you don’t have a lot of comments here,  but the views are there so it’s working❤

Huck sends you head butts back… you DO have a kitty following🥰🤭❤❤

So I watched and really enjoyed. So how long is one show. Do you have time to discuss more then one topic thoroughly? Me personally, if it’s a topic im interested in I would like to focus on that topic and learn about it then just say a summary. For example; I would like to learn all about I could about pain management in one airing. 

I don’t know if this made any sense, but there you go….

Well we appreciate any and all feedback, so thanks!

We want to keep it to about 10 minutes at most, for bandwidth issues (our internet data plan is limited on our end). Also since we spend 30 minutes with vet experts on Tripawd Talk Radio , we prefer to save the “meat and potatoes” of topics for the podcast.

But OK yeah, we can do a little of each I think. I’m glad you guys are enjoying it. We’re figuring it out as we go for thanks for your patience and encouragement.

Oh gosh thanks Jackie, we couldn’t help ourselves from going all out! At least Wyatt didn’t mind that we borrowed his bandanas.
