We love seeing old friends and always hope to meet new people and pups. 

We have regulars that come up from So Cal: John, Diane and the pack. If Alison and Jasper come again we will add them to the ‘regular’ list too!

All two leggers, three leggers and four leggers welcome!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

I’ve seen some new members join and wasn’t sure if any of them were up in the bay area or north but wanted to give this post a little push! Jasper (the quadpawd) and I are looking forward to seeing our friends and meeting new ones!!! Hoping our friends from Orange County will be joining us (Bernie and family) and hope to see Shelby the Petite Princess and her pack …and all our other friends!

YAY!

I have the date marked in the calander, and was considering attending, but due to recent issues with Vito’s mobility, not sure we will be able to make it.

We are about 1.5ish hours south of Mill Valley, (in south san jose) so if anybody coming up (or going down) wants/needs a rest stop, please consider this an offer of invitation. we are just off 85, approx 10 miles from the S101 interchange. Big fenced yard, friendly doggs, good water, and a cold beer if ya need it 🙂

i don’t want to post my addy on here, but PM me if you want contact info

Sorry to miss you Vito!!!! Jasper and I are coming from LA and coming via Dublin area  so we probably won’t have a chance to pop by…

On another note … is it really going to be 70s plus next weekend!?! Jasper and I might pack our swimmies!!! Just kidding … she’s not a water dog but we are looking forward to seeing our friends next week.

Hugs!

alison with spirit shelby as her co-pilot and little jasper is along for the ride .. heart

Sorry to jear Vito is having mobility issues. It would be soooo great if a few tripawd s and quadpawds could stop by and give Vito some love!

Gosh…almost 13 by now? A tripawd (after knee surgery, or ligament?) who clearly jas been living life to the fullest with great quality…that’s what we all want!

Hoping some can stop by!

Lots of love!

PS. Alison, we MUST see a pic of Jasper in her bikini!
