Look out Las Vegas, Tripawds Spokesdawg Wyatt Ray is back and ready for his close-up at the 2014 Blog Paws Pet Blogging and Social Media Conference!

Starting today the Tripawds Nation will represent and network with the biggest pet brands in the world, met other pet-centric bloggers and celebrity pawsonalities like Natural Balance's Tillman the Skateboarding Dog who help to make the world better for all animals.

Not only will we learn how to make Tripawds better than ever through social media strategies and networking, but our very own “Admin Guy,” aka co-founder Jim Nelson, will present a session topic called "Facebook Pages Versus Groups."

Blog Paws 2014 is our biggest opportunity yet to spread the word about life on three legs to other pet bloggers, social media stars and animal product brands.

We're able to do it thanks to these very generous sponsors who are improving our Tripawd heroes' quality of life.

Please visit our sponsor's websites, Twitter and Facebook pages and tell them that Tripawds sent you!

K9 Medicinals is an evangelist and distributor for K9 Immunity ™, the proven and affordable way to significantly boost your dog's fight against cancer.

Nearly every dog on K9 Immunty shows noticeable improvement within days – all by naturally strengthening their immune system. It helps dogs fight  fight cancer in two, critical ways: 1) Keeps existing cells healthy as they replicate and 2) Rids damaged cells (like cancer cells) before they can multiply.

K9 Immunity has helped over 1 million dog cancer patients, including Tripawds Founder, Jerry G. Dawg, which is why we put our name behind it.

Morris Animal Foundation is our all-time favorite animal health organization because of the many quality of life improvements they enable for the animal kingdom through specialized studies, research and more.

Hop over to Morris' new #UniteToFight campaign! -- a virtual fundraising campaign in which participants pledge to take their pets for a walk on June 22, 2014. When you Unite to Fight, you honor dogs and cats that have fought cancer, and you join the world in a bigger fight by supporting pet cancer research through Morris Animal Foundation.

It all began in 2006 when Tripawds Founder Jerry wore the first design of the Ruffwear Webmaster harness .

That's when we discovered that the Webmaster is the best-fitting, most durable and all-purpose harness for three-legged amputee dogs missing a front or rear leg.

Although the Webmaster and other Ruffwear products aren't made specifically for Tripawds, Ruffwear creates a lot of helpful gear that works perfectly for a Tripawd's needs.

Ruffwear is more than just a harness company; they produce even more helpful products like boots, beds and apparel which you can check out in the Tripawds Gear Store!

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

Liberty (Libby) was diagnosed with OSA on 1-22-13.  Right front amputation on 1-31-13. No IV Chemo. Metronomic Therapy started 2-19-13 along with supplements and some home cooking. Lungs clear until 1-06-14.  She's still her happy, hoppy, bossy self.  Living the dog life to the fullest and a proud Winter Warrior. :) RIP my Libby 4-21-03 to 3-19-14

Wyatt Ray looks like he is living the Vegas dream...way to represent! Hope y'all are having a blast!

Deb and Angel Lexie* Diagnosed at age 13. Tried radiation first; wish we had amputated upon diagnosis (even with lung mets). Joined Club Tripawd April 2014 & Lexie loved life on 3 legs! Advice: Start physical therapy as soon as your vet clears it, especially hydrotherapy if available :-) See Lexie pics here.
