Jasper and I are soooooo sad to miss this one (darn job had to hold their special event/gala that same night). I  begged to get out of it but seeing my main job is to schmooze fancy donors … I didn’t win. BUT we’ll be there in spirit and definitely will catch the next one! 

Hugs to all our Northern CA besties!!!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Dusty and I were working on our social skills in downtown Santa Rosa today and we met some folks with a good looking black Lab TRIPAWD.

Told them about our next get together on May 6th and about the web site, hopefully they will be able to meet up with us! way-cool

WOW!!!! SESSY ‘s gping to da’ pawty!!! 🙂 🙂 Way to represent elegance! 🙂

A d Karen, I jave a feeling Elly would be behind Frankie. He’s not a shy boy at all! This is actually his “you HAVE to pay attention to me now” position!

Hey…can you all do that skype/facetime/google thing? Not that I would even know how to do It….but I’m sure the Admin Guy can spend a few minutes to show us…or three days! 🙂 🙂

HAVE A BLAST EVERYONE!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
