We live in Northern Palm Beach County, Fl. Cinnamon is a 9yo who lost her leg a year ago. She still thinks and acts like a puppy, but when I took her to the local dog park a few months ago, she was overwhelmed within minutes by the more able-bodied dogs. I’m hoping to set up a meet-up/playgroup in the North Palm/Gardens/Jupiter area so that our BFFs can still have fun. If you live in the area and would like to join, please let me know! We can work out when and where once we have a few people—er, make that TriPawds.

Hi Cinnamon & furmily! She sounds like a great dog!

Thanks for joining and putting a call-out for a pawty! Got any pics of her that you'd like to share? I'll start getting the word out but it would really help get people's attention if you can share some photos of her. 

This is how adding images to the Forums works.

  • Upload pics to a photo sharing site like or your own Tripawds blog (https://tripawd...../supporter). Pictures and video have to be hosted (live) somewhere other than in the forums.
  • Once the photo is uploaded somewhere, right click and copy the Image URL or just copy the image if you’re on a phone
  • Return to your Tripawds Forum post and paste the image URL (or the image itself) in your post. It should automatically appear.

If you’d like help figuring out the process let me know.

You can see photos of Cinnamon Sugar here, on her public Facebook page. Anything since November 2020 is her post surgery. And yes, she is a spoiled princess! 🙄🤣❤️

Thank you, Jerry. Believe me, she knows it and knows how to “work it,” too!
