6/8 is good with us. You name the place. We are in brookshire so we are not far from the beltway which will take us anywhere. We are a little West of Katy. But the north side is much nicer and more trees. So just let us know. Brownie has a few years on Maggie. He mostly likes to have a sniffing partner. Lol.. I will bring his stroller just in case he gets worn out. I will also bring some jugs of water to cool them off if they get hot. We are excited!

Sniff!! I always seem to be a step ahead or a step behind. We will be in Magnolia starting on July 4 for our granddaughter’s wedding. Have a wonderful pawty!

Kathi and the Turbotail Tripawd Angel…and the Labradork (who has finally mostly settled down)

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!

It’s official.icon_lol The first Tripaw PAWTY has been set.smiley16 The date/Time is:

06/08/2019 @ 9AM

The location is: (drive until you see a pavilion on the left, there will be a parking lot there and I am planning on being in that immediate area)

Unity Park

19450 Unity Park Drive

Magnolia, Tx, 77355

This first PAWTY will be more of a meet & greet. Hopefully, there will be enough interest to plan future gatherings in the Houston area. Nancy & Brownie and Dave & Maggie are ready to go and invite all tripaw’s and their families to come. There is no dog park here, so make sure you have a leash and bring water and anything else you will need.

YAAAY!  THIS IS SO EXCITING!  The connections you form will turn into friendships that last furever!  I really encourage anyone within traveling distance to show up!  And “within traveling  distance”, In the case of some of the Virginia  pawties we’ve done means, not only as far away as Wisconsin, California  Iowa and New Mexico, but as far away as the UK and Germany also!  Yes, true!

And I can tell with absolute  certainty that those of you who have signed up will have a delightful time, as will your puppers!   And the depth of your friendships will be priceless😊

So happy for all of you! Wish I could be there!   Can’t  wait for the pictures!!

Love to all!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

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!

REALLY Exciting! Let me know if this flyer works for you and if so, we will start putting it on social media.

If you’d like to print it and post at your local vet offices and pet supply stores, community bulletin boards, etc., that can help get the word out. Here is a link to download the PDF flyer and for now you can see what it looks like:
