Hey all! Since Domino and I had a blast at last years Tripawd Party in Virginia, I was curious if anyone was interested in planning or having another one this year!

Domino had his left front leg amputate on May 13th 2014 after being hit by a car. He's now living a happy healthy life on three legs :)

Merry Myrtle and Frankie are in! (Of course, Im referring to ERIC’S dog, howling, wild & crazy outta control Frankie! Yeah, you had to be there to understand!)

Bettin’ Tanner & Milo, Fannie Mae, Zac, Chandler & Daryl, Pearl & ZuZu, maybe even Jacks! Of course all of Ingrid’s Greys too! I know Julie and her Buddy would come. Perhaps Arrianna (geez, I know I’m off on her name, Eliz.k ows who I mean) and her tripawd as well as her adopted pup. Also, Carol, who’s wonderful dog has crossed over would hopefully want to come.

Then we have our Michelle and Karma who we HAVE to figure out a way to get here! Alison, we can make it on a Thrusday since you don’t have anything going on that daywinker

I knkw all of us had a wonderful time at Fredericksburg last year with the trilawds and the Greyhounds. RENE, do you know if Kim and the Greys have any plans for this year? Or were the Tripawds banned permanently because of Eric’s dog Frankie?

AND, Rene and Jim and Wyatt, are you heading this way anytime soon?

A MEET AND GREET at last year’s pawty…..Tanner, Fannie Mae, Frankie (Eric’s dog) and Merry Myrtle!

Haw haw haw! ERIC’s Dog. Yeah I heard he was in charge of that crazy Wyatt Ray too.

Well heck, I wish we could make it out but it’s not in the cards this year unfortunately. I will do what I can to help organize one though. Sally, didn’t Garbo’s Mom say she wanted to come down to meet you sometime this spring? If a pawty could be arranged maybe her media savvy could come in very handy for it. What do you think?

I wish I would be able to this  year.  Dog surgery and vet bills but I am trying to put a little back for next one unless I can come up with money and get time off from work (which I wouldn’t have to show up to dead even) it’s like pulling teeth.  I know I promised this year but I wasn’t planning on Bosch having eye surgery.  Rene are you guys planning on east next year? 

Sally I am working hard to get money put back I promise promise promise.  You just never know I may have to come see you without a Tripawd party lol.   Although I would love to meet everyone out that way.

Well that’s a long way off, but we just found out the 2017 AAHA meeting is in Nashville, this time of year. Depending on where on the East Coast the Blog Paws conference takes place, we just might head out that way next spring.

Was so fun last year! Eric was the ” dog wisperer” Daryl was in love! I know Chandler would be ready. He actually hitched a ride with Hubby this AM. he was just running a short errand, but wound up taking all 3. Last year, I was just planning on bringing Daryl because I was coming alone. Chandler planted himself by my car and was not taking no for an answer. He is a hoot.

TY GUY, Best Black Lab ever! Diagnosed  and had amp in January, 2014. Kicked MRSA's butt. Earned his angel wings on April 16, 2014. Run Free my boy and don't forget a shoe. Ty is a proud member of the " April Angels". Ty sent us Daryl, a Tripawd rescue in Sept. of 2016. Daryl is 5 +or -. We are also Pawrents to Chandler, a Border Collie mix who is 15 and 1/2, Lucy, a Corgi who is 7, 2 minis, 2 horses, and a feisty cat named Zoe. Zoe had a non skeletal Osteosarcoma removed in July 2015. No Chemo, she was at least 16. She is going strong although she is now completely blind. She is now close to 20 and her hobbies are eating and sleeping in front of her personal heater.

We could be in for a trip to Virginia for a party, it just depends on how things are at work.  I am working 60+ hour (5 days x 12 hours) weeks due to a staffing shortage and all vacations are canceled until further notice.  My normal days off are Sunday/Monday but that can change a little with some advance warning.  I might be able to get Friday – Monday off if I work 10 days straight.

And I still need to introduce you all to Tex.  After 11 months, Rich and I are pretty sure he’s our boy and meant to be with us.

Hey Guys

This year Greyhounds ROCK is having their Roses, Wines, and Canines on September 25 at Hartwood Manor (Which is about 20 miles from the Piney Branch Ranch) right next to Hartwood Winery.  This is a Sunday.  We’d love to have you join us this year.  We had a blast last year.  Maybe in 2017 we can do another get together in the Spring when Jim and Renee can join us.  We can have it again at the PBR.  More info on R,W, & C is on http://www.grey…..dsrock.org and we are adding details as we go along so keep checking back.

Did I mention the wine……

INGRID! KIM!! Good to hear from you both!

I kinda dropped the ball when I brought this up a bit ago..

Kim thanks for the invite!

For those who came ro the “first” smaller get together in Virginia, we could do the same thing at the same place…ROCKWOOD PARK. If you recall, it had sheltered picnic areas and a “dog park”. We took over the “small dog” are with all oir tripawds. It’s a “gathering”. We all bring some snacks and drinks and all the dogs drink out of everybody else’s water bowls except their own!!

Ingrid and Nixon and Cookie won the prize for coming the furthest…North Carolina! BTW, the Park is off major highways, so easy to find.

ANYWAY, if I get some feedback, I’ll go ahead and check out available dates for the same picnic shelter we had last time, or something similar. Thinking it would probably be a July date…maybe???

And then we could maybe join the Greyhounds in September too! They have GREAT events/gatherings!

Soooo…could one of you faceboogerers put this on there so I can see how many are interested and if July is an option?

OOooooh there’s a pawty in the making! I love it!

Ingrid, congrats on the new addition, what a lucky pup Tex is.

I wish we could be there. Unfortunately we can’t, but next year when the Blog Paws conference is on the East Coast again (and the next AAHA conference too, about the same time), there’s a good chance we will be out that way in the May timeframe. Until then, pawty on and know that we’ll be there in spirit, and help any way we can with getting the word out.

xoxo

Oh…and a PS…..When Frnakie “tricked” Merry Myrtle into going on that three day unauthorized vacation without me last November, they caught the eye of another tripawd owner. She lives in the same area Frankie selected as his vacay destination AND she’s a reporter for a local tv station. She was going to get them on the air the same night I found them. Elizabeth made this happen through faceboog!

Sooo…may get a bit of “publicity” for the TRIPAWDS UNIVERSE!clap

Michelle! You are DEFINITELY coming to the 2017 event! Even if we have to arrange “transport”!
