Thanks Christine! Yes we did see it. The article originally appeared in Dogster and there’s one about TriKitties in Catster too! See:

Team Tripawds raised $3,135.00 for the PuppyUp Foundation, and ended up as the third highest fundraising team.  Way to go Tripawds!  And some of that money will come right back to the Tripawds Nation!   The walk raised $35,965 total, which is just great, and I think double what they raised last year.

Unfortunately, I had to work part of the day, so couldn’t make it.   In all honesty, that was probably for the best.  Not only did I avoid the logistical inconvenience of the new location, but I got to spend most of the day with my AlliGator, which was probably way better for my state of mind.

Special thanks to Stephanie (neka03) and Angel Neka for their generous donation!

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

http://tripawds…..is-tess/  WOW!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂   OUTSTANDING ACCOMPLISHMENTS!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂    Thank you Christine and everyone!!! 🙂

I think spending the day with Gator is what you both needed!  I know this event has to be  bittersweet for you. 

I did want you to know that, while I didn’t contribute to the specific  PuppyUp Event, I chose to contribute directly to Tripawds in honor of you and Otis and Tess.    Jim did a good job of picking the pictures out for the Honor Roll.

Here’s the link in case you missed it

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Thank you for spearheading, Christine!  It was our honor to support.

Lisa, Minneapolis

On October 27, 2016, nearly 6 months after amputation, and 18 months since his cancer likely started, we lost Pofi to a recurrence of Soft Tissue Sarcoma in his spine quite suddenly.  His canine sister also succumbed to cancer on March 1, 2019 - we lavished her with our love in the interim, but life was never quite the same without her only real canine friend. Cliff kitty had to leave us, too, suddenly, in August 2019. Lucia kitty grieved all these losses, but helped us welcome two new Lurchers into our home and our lives, Shae and Barley.
