Thank you so    much for sharing this gathering  of two very, very special  tripawds andn their very special  hoomans.  I know it meant a lot to connect with each other and share all the aspects of the journey and to share these magnificent  dogs with each other!!

And boy oh boy, Brownie  and Maggie sure showed us what a hot day it was with those tongues  flapping!!  Most importantly  though, they look happy and completely  comfortable in all their tripawdness!💥

I love that they both had matching  yellow Trpawd Bandannas!

And the tee shirt and Rene's jewelry complimented  their tripawd  attire perfectly!

Seeing these pics made us feel like we were there.  Thank you for allowing  us to pawty with you😀


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!

Hi all! I know it's been a few years since the last tripawd meetup in Houston. Just wondering if you all still meet up. Couldn't find much information on the Houston site.

Hello Paulette, welcome.

Unfortunately Brownie crossed the Bridge in 2020, but her mom Nancy is still active here.  If you join as a member then you can use our private message system to contact Dave and Maggie and maybe get something started!

Also you could tell us about yourself and your Tripawed.

I know with covid issues our Nor Cal group hasn't had a get together in a few years- but we just scheduled one for July.  Sounds like time for Houston to party again!

Hi Paulette! Thanks for chiming in and starting the convo. It's nice to know pawties can start up again.

All it takes is one person to start a pawty going and we will help promote it any way we can. If you'd like us to share a call-out o the Tripawds Facebook Page , share some photos of your pup and general timeframe of when you're thinking of a get together. Then we can do a little promoting to try to wrangle folks. Hope the Texas Tripawds can do it again!

Oh that would be great! How is she doing?

Any idea when and where you're thinking? If you set a date and time I can help promote it!
