(Throwing a tantrum) I wanna go too!!! . . . sniff, sniff. Guess I’ll have to enjoy the pics and such too. Not in the cards for me and my girls, just too much on the plate right now.

Did I happen to mention “sniff, sniff?”

Rene and Sally,

It sure is tempting.  And I even talked to Cassie to find out her travel plans.  But with me just coming back to work from LOA, I can’t take any time off.  Trust me… I am super bummed out.  sleepy  Have fun, but not too much without me and miss me a little winkerwinker

Karma, Adelaide and the gang, and our forever angel Brendol

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.

So sorry to be late to the online party thread but I’ll be there for the REAL party to see all our old friends and meet online friends live and in person (and meet new ones too, of course). Angel Lexie will be with us in spirit partying with Happy Hannah, Jake, Polly, Ty, and all her other friends on the bridge as they all watch the antics together.

Thanks to all for organizing!

I’ll be bringing Tanner’s long lost quad pawd sister, Fannie Mae. Just a heads up to all, Fannie Mae LOVES other dogs and loves to play off leash, but she is generally shy around new people and is extremely nervous around small kids and around men she doesn’t know. Once she is comfortable she will warm up quickly in smaller group settings and does fine in dog parks, but she likes people who want to pet her to kneel down and hold out their hands to let her sniff them first.

Can’t wait to see everyone!

Deb, Angel Lexie and Fannie Mae

P.S. I tried to click on the banner to register but it just takes me to the main page (FYI for Rene and Admin Guy). I’ll bring cash. 🙂

Deb and Angel Lexie* Diagnosed at age 13. Tried radiation first; wish we had amputated upon diagnosis (even with lung mets). Joined Club Tripawd April 2014 & Lexie loved life on 3 legs! Advice: Start physical therapy as soon as your vet clears it, especially hydrotherapy if available :-) See Lexie pics here.

Hey Deb, so happy you’ll be there! There is a button on the website that says ‘register’ but don’t worry, you can pay cash, that’s fine. Thank you!!! Cannot wait to meet all of you.

YAAAAAAAAAY DEB AND FANNIE MAE!!!!

Fannie Mae is so lucky to have someone who understands her so well. Sounds like such a sweetheart!

.Merry Myrtle just loves people and thinks every human she sees wants to be her BFF the second she spots them. If you squat down to pet her, she bypasses the need to sniff your hand and tries to sit on your lap. And she’s fine with other dogs except she’s completely unaware of her “largeness”. Frankie…dear crazy boy Frankie…..fine with people….guess I’ll find out how he is with other dogs Saturday! He just vocalizes everything loudly and with a piercing shrillness! II hope that doesn’t get the other dogs too riled up! Guess we’ll find out about that Saturday too!

Looks like the weather is going to be perfect too!!

Merry Myrtle and Franki are busy packing their suitcases. I keep having to take out the ice cream and put it back in the freezer before it melts!

Yay!! It’s almost here! 

Me and the puppers are almost completely packed, just last minute stuff to do. All I have to do now is get through work today! It’s gonna be a long day. I will see all of you on Saturday!

Have a GREAT time, all y’all! Wish we could be there, but will have to wait impatiently for the pictures.

Kathi and the Turbotail April Angel

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

Please, please, please?????

Yay Deb!!!!! So excited!!!! I can’t believe it’s almost here! 

I took about 900 pictures last year and my guess is that I’ll take about 20,000 this time LOL. You can COUNT on pictures and videos :)))))
