Hi, 

My beloved Akira had a front-leg amputation early September 2016 and has had a difficult time with confidence moving around in her new tripawd body.  Our vet suggested that we help her by having her engage with other tripawds, to see and learn how ‘Loving Life on 3 Legs ‘ can and does happen.

I am writing this post to see if there are other tripawd owners in San Diego who would be interested in connecting.  This could look like a group gathering, a play date, or simply a tripawd owner phone connection.  I am open to coordinating any one or more of these, feel it could be very supportive for pet and owner. 😉

‘Jerry’ asked me to post this here and will post on social media, too.  Private message me if you are interested! 

Here is Akira’s story if you’d like to get to know us: http://www.AkiraAndMe.com

Warmly,

Debby

Hello,

I am a new mother to a Tripawd and live in San Diego.  My Tripawd is a front leg amputee named “Chewy” who is a one and a half  year old sheppard mix.  We would love to become part of a San Diego Tripawd group!

We live north of LA, but would love a So cal meet up! Fiesta Island would be perfect!

 I've been a tripawd since July 10, 2017, when I rid my life of a hemangiopericytoma! My mom, Brittnie, does most of the typing, so say hi to us both any time!

Hi, we couldn’t be at the Nor-Cal meet up, but we’ll keep an eye on this and try to make it work.

Never been to San Diego, sounds like fun!
