Wyatt meets Paris aka Tripawds member Gineej

That Wyatt dawg had the pleasure of meeting another inspawrational canine cancer suvivor when Paris visited Colorado with her pack. Better known as gineej in the discussion forums, her people met up with Jim and René a few weeks back. Of course, everyone had there cameras. Gineej posted her movies from the fun visit in the forums, and my pack has finally gotten around to posting this video.

Better late than never, eh? 🙂


Even though her cancer has returned to her Lungs, Paris shows no sign of slowing down at the high altitude dog park in Fort Collins, CO.  This video interview  shares the story of her osteosarcoma diagnosis, amputation surgery, treatment. It also shows her amazing spirit and that hoppy Tripawd smile we love to see so much.

I think someone forgot to tell Paris that she has cancer...look at her go!!!!!  That's so great that she's doing so well, and she and Wyatt make a pretty cute couple although I think she's robbing the cradle... Winker

We had such a great trip to Colorado and Paris is ready to do vacation again!! We are very blessed, she continues to hang in there. We saw the vet last week and she said her heart and lungs sound good.....for now "she is defying the odds".

Happy Thanksgiving to the Tripawd community,

Gineej & Paris

Grateful for every moment we had with Paris… regrets!

Honoring her life by opening our hearts & home to Addy!

Great video of an absolutely gorgeous girl!  It's good to hear that Paris's heart and lungs sound good.  Here's hoping she continues to do well for a long time to come.  Smile
