What does it mean to Be More Dog?
Find out in Be More Dog: Learning to Live in the Now by Tripawds founders Rene and Jim. Learn life lessons learned from their Chief Fun Officer Jerry G. Dawg! Get the book and find fun gifts in the Be More Dog Bookstore.
We're so excited that so many folks want to participate in pet-centric events around their communities to help spread the message of the Tripawds Nation!
We are working on a traveling Tripawds display to send to everyone's events (no it doesn't include a Wyatt Ray in-the-box!). In order to ensure everyone has this display, I'd love for this place to feature a list of upcoming events that folks want to attend on behalf of Tripawds.
So, if you are thinking of attending an event this year, please share that date here so we can ensure you'll get the display in time. We can coordinate logistics through the PM system. For now just share the event details here.
Thanks so much!

Proud Pet Day 2014 (sponsored by Lancaster CARES & Pet Pantry Rescue)
That Fish Place - That Pet Place field next to store

May 17, 2014, all day
I will be setting up a table at the event for community outreach for Tripawds with Barret I have already requested the tribute leash and banner/materials from Rene.
Last year's event drew 1000s of pet lovers from around the area to meet with rescues, vets, and local dog/cat service providers (daycares, vendors, agility centers, etc). We may have a "PetOlympics" with a specially-abled category if the planning committee can make it happen!
Just in case I stop getting notifications on this thread (happens from time to time), email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details or questions about the event!

Boise has See Spot Walk held in October every year, but I haven't been able to find any info available for this year. I'll keep you posted.
Kathi and Murphy
Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!
UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

There will be a Morris Animal Foundation K9 Cancer Walk in San Jose, CA on April 13. We will form a Team Tripawds for this event and will arrange to have a booth there as well.
There will also be a Morris Walk in Elk Grove, CA on October 12. Depending on local interest in attending and success of the booth we will consider organizing a team and having a booth at this event as well.
