I posted some on the other forum too.  There are some really wonderful shots, that guy did great!  Other than the shot I got of my backside.  I am on an insta-diet 🙁

I couldn't begin to say how special Sammy is to us.  Living and laughing with and loving this wonderful boy is priceless.

Hey everyone -

In the interests of full disclosure, I didn't take the pictures. You may have figured that out since I'm in some of them. 🙂 My buddy George has given me all of the pics, so for those of you whose e-mail addresses I don't have, send my your e-mail and I'll make sure you have access to all of the pics.

We had such a great time, even though his royal highness was a bit of an ass. Sorry about that.

Looking forward to the next one!

Hi Western Washingtonians - I know this post is really old but I'm wondering if any of you can recommend grief resources in our area? We just lost our sweet Daisy 3 weeks ago and I am looking for a support group.

Thank you,
Alicia

Hi Alicia,

I do not know where in Western Washington you are, but Dove Lewis Emergency Pet Hospital in Portland, has a wonderful pet loss support counselor, Enid Traisman...http://www.dove.....s-support/ You are invited to contact her directly through the web site, and you can participate in many pet loss support activities, like memorializing your animal in art...they have group sessions throughout the month. Enid is incredible, and even if you are not in Portland, I think she would be delighted to help you in whatever way she can. Another source is to get in touch with Lauren McCall at http://www.thei.....animal.com. She lives in the Portland area, and is an animal communicator, TTouch practitioner, and so much more having to with the health and welfare of animals and their humans. On her web site you will see a lovely book she has written, The Eternal Gift, which is an amazing, inspirational help to those of us left behind as our animals cross into their next life. I know Lauren personally, and let me say, she helped pull me out of the depths of a dark hole I have never known before, when I lost my little PeeWee. So...those are two tips I have to share, again, from very personal experience. Both women are incredibly compassionate and will help you understand and "cope" with your loss. We wish you well, John Wayne and his mom.

So sorry to hear about your loss, I believe that the Seattle Animal Shelter runs grief counseling groups.  I'm in Kirkland, I'm right in the middle of moving so my house is destroyed, but you are more then welcome to stop by, share a cup of tea and tell me all about you wonderful pup if you would like to.  Big hugs to you and family.

Thank you for the infomation and the offer - I really appreciate everyone's suggestions. I'm actually on Rose Hill (the Redmond side) :-) . I did also find a support group, AHELP, that meets at SVS the second Wednesday of every month - I went this month and am going to go next month as well. It's my so hard right now :-( I would love to get together if anyone is up for it.

Again thank you for the support!

Hello everyone! I'm a new Tripawd in Washington and Mommy and I would like to meet you guys! I just had surgery to remove my left rear leg after an accident which left my knee and ankle immovable. Mommy and the doctor decided that amputation was best. I'm doing really good and I want to meet other Tripawds!
