Any tripawds want to join Taz and me on the annual See Spot Walk benefit for the Idaho Humane Society? I have my new cool colored Tripawd scarf, we'll both have on our Tripawds shirts and she and I will be strutting our stuff for sure! I'm not sure what the sign up cost is yet, usually $18.00 and that includes a T-shirt and IHS scarf (but we'll have our own special scarf on!) as well as lots of freebies from local vendors.
This is truely a pawsome event!!!
Email me if interested! Barb Greene - firstname.lastname@example.org
See Spot Walk – Idaho’s best and biggest dog event. Held in Julia Davis Park, the event includes food and retail vendors, contests, floats, costumes and cool prizes. After "parading" with your dog and thousands of other dog lovers and their canines return to the park for more food, fun and festivities. Registration begins September 4th.
Festivities begin at 9 a.m. and the Walk begins promptly at 10 a.m.
Barb that is so neat! I hope you get some fellow Tripawders walking with you. Put this in Facebook when you can to remind me to share it in our Events listing. We'll do all we can to help you make connections with folks. What a great cause!
Drats! I think we need to do some publicity here Tazzy. Do you have any contacts at newspapers in Boise? PM me and we'll work on some press releases together to get some attention. I'm happy to help.
Hi Barb! I have a tripawd in Boise.. An 18 month Schnauzer mix I just adopted from IHS. She lost her front left leg in a car accident. Her picture is my profile picture! She was trained by a prison inmate in Kuna so she knows all sorts of tricks, she even jumps through a hula hoop!
I'm currently taking Gidget on walks everyday to get her ready for the mile walk for See Spot Walk. It doesn't seem like she got a ton of exercise while at the pound. She was shuttled between foster homes, the pound, the prison in Kuna, and the IHS so the stress kind of got to her and she got kennel cough. (she's over it now) Also, she loves to chase bugs in the yard so we think she was bitten by a spider. Her neck and chin was so swollen! She's been through a lot in this first month at my house!
I definitely plan on going to See Spot Walk this year, maybe we could meet up!
Oh, by the way, my name is Marie!
Hi Marie! Thanks for posting here, I just knew there had to be another Boise Tripawd! I hope you can get together with Tazzy, it would be great to have a three-legged dog presence at the event. I am happy to send you some Tripawds business cards to hand out while you're there, just PM me if you want some.
Oh, I would email Barb to let her know you posted here just in case she misses this update.
Oh cool! Any photos?
