What new faces and muzzles will we meet this time?

It doesn't matter how many legs you have, all are welcome!

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

Gracie and I will very likely come if she is cleared for play by then (currently nursing a seroma at the amputation site from too much puppy play!)

There is an event in San Francisco this weekend- maybe too early for Chance?  A fundraiser for The Tripawds Foundation : Howl-O-Ween 2016.

I know Kim and Hannah will be there, as well as at least one pup from the OakTown Pack (Three Tripawd GSDs, one four legged mutt, and a couple of pretty cool peeps!).

If I don't see you there I'll see you in a couple weeks.

oh cool! Chance gets his stitches out on Wednesday and doc will assess his progress and let me know how much activity he is allowed to have, etc. Last report from him last week was that all was looking good! And Chance seems to desperately want to come out with us on walks and adventures. Hopefully we can make it! If not, for sure November 5th heartpoopicon_pngheart
