Wooo hooo! Tripawds upcoming nuptials between Wyatt Ray and Hannah makes the Riverside Press-Enterprise Newspaper!

Eastvale: Two three-legged German shepherds and a wedding

“I understand. I get it. But a dogwedding in this highly-charged political climate? Yes, Wyatt and Hannah appear to loosely satisfy SaveCalifornia’s “between-a-man-and-a-woman” criteria. But there is no getting around it: They’re dogs!

“We’re for marriage equality, period,” declared Wyatt’s owner Nelson, who once lived in Eureka. Now he, Rene and the dog crisscross the country in their RV, drumming up dog amputee awareness.

Nelson makes little attempt to romanticize the impending High Noon union. It’s an “arranged marriage. We hope they get along.”
