It’s that time of year again and no doubt you are looking for that special gift for people in your life. When you do, Admin Guy and I hope that you’ll remember how much your shopping choices matter here in the Tripawds Nation. 

Between our Tripawds Gear Shop, Tripawds Gifts and our Amazon Affiliate links, Admin Guy and I directly earn small commissions that chip in to offset the costs of keeping this community online. We don’t make a ton of money doing it, but when combined with our jewelry making, freelance writing, website and marketing consulting, it enables us to be available for this community throughout the day. The more makes, the less the Tripawds Foundation needs to raise. 

But this year, we’ve noticed a significant dip in our sales and we can’t help but wonder if it’s because of the way that the Amazon machine has changed the way we all shop online. Our suspicions were confirmed today when we heard this on NPR:

Amazon is expected to claim 50 cents of every dollar spent on the Internet, 

We understand that competing with Amazon on price is pointless. The service and support we do offer, however, cannot be found there or anywhere else. For example:

  • We understand the physical and emotional needs of Tripawd parents like no other retailer
  • We know what products work and don’t work on our three-legged pals
  • And we can offer many suggestions that make your Tripawd’s life (and yours) safer, happier and better.

With that in mind, we hope you will remember to shop Tripawds for your three-legged pal’s needs, and for other gifts and ordinary purchases throughout the year when you do shop Amazon.

You can support the community by starting your Amazon Shopping at these links:

(Wondering about the difference between the Amazon Smile Program for Tripawds Foundation versus Amazon Affiliate Links? Read on.)

Thank you for allowing us to do what we do here at Tripawds. We feel so fortunate to be part of your lives, and wish you and your families a peaceful, joyous pawliday season.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

The Admin Guy gave a great tutorial if you go to the “read on https://tripawd…..ate-links/” link Jerry noted above.  It’s  comprehensive  and dummied down so even tavlet  techies could understand it, even if the questions  were nonsensical to real computer people. 

So just restating how simple it is to support Tripawds , as Jerry and Admin Guy pointed out……..

“When shopping, start your search for products from the Tripawds Amazon blog , and you will always be redirected to the Tripawds Associates product links.”
