You guys were so great, Sammy and I had the best time.  He is so sore today, he could barely hop outside for a potty break this morning.  I guess he was trying too hard to keep up with Lincoln!

I am glad to have met all of you.  I wanted to take Dr. Pams puppy home and squeeze him, he was tooo adorable.  I hope you all have an enjoyable few weeks until/if  we meet again at the Walk a thon for cancer.

Thanks for everything and the wonderful pictures Rhonda, that one is getting framed of me and Sammy.  What a blessing!  I have wanted one of us forever and that is the first one that I have liked.

I too have photo's, but will have to post them after my husband gets a minute to get them uploaded for me.  It may take a few days to get him to work the request into his schedule 🙂

 

JD's mom, thanks for helping hold Sammy while I got situated so many times.  It was great to see you there.  I hope to see you friday too!

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

Oh this is SO NEAT! How wonderful to see all of you pawtying together and having a good time in the spirit of Tripawd. Did the wine get consumed at the pawty? Wooo hooo! Is that why Julian was drooling? 😉

Love the pics. It's so neat to put human faces to the names of our members  here. I often forget that there's a human behind those names!

We can't wait to meet you all, hopefully for the walk. Weather's turning colder here and it's looking like winter could hit soon (which means snow!). That's when we're outta here. We'll keep you posted.

Rhonda,

Thanks for the excellent photos (and for the wine)!  Julian was so tired after meeting the tripawds and after partying with the Bulldogs at Slobberfest that he fell asleep at 7 pm and didn't wake up until 7am today.  He especially liked Nancy's poodles.

Rhonda, what great photos!  I especially love the one of Sammy and Elizabeth!!  It was so nice to meet everyone.  I feel like my friends on this site have just doubled:  first, it was the Tripawds and now it's the Tripawd parents too.

Dr. Pam, thanks so much for organizing this pawty.  And who would have believed that my poodles liked Julian the most of all the dogs.  They were certainly fascinated by him.

It's great to have these photos to remember the day.  I wish I could do the Walk-a-thon, but I will be in Auburn at Argus Ranch for Dogs for an agility trial on Nov. 6-7.

James slept through the night for the first time in WEEKS!! 

Nancy and the poodles

James the poodle had his left front leg amputated due to osteosarcoma on Aug. 4, 2010.  He is currently doing chemo.

I am so sorry guys, when I said "copy" I meant to copy from photobucket onto computer... I don't know what happened.  I can't undo it either... Why do I have computer "heebiee Jeebiees"?  I am sad.

Okay, I will try and copy more now...Image Enlarger

There are so many good ones, but I better stop for the night.  It isn't going well.  I will try tomorrow.

Once again Cometdog to the rescue! 

Thanks for helping me.  I went to bed sweaty and frustrated at this box with lights.  I was going to cut out the pictures from my printer and tape them onto the screen in hopes that there was some kind of osmosis taking effect while I slept.  Then I just closed my eyes and tried to blot out the nightmare of no longer living in the industrial age...

Would you make a video for me?  I have many video's of Sammy but can't seem to get them onto youtube.  Go figure right?!

 

Hope you have a great day,

Elizabeth and Sammy
