We are interested.  We’re in Upstate NY outside Albany.  Thanks so much, and please let us know if we can help in any way!

Fallon's left front leg was amputated due to osteosarcoma on 10/11/17.

I’d love to bring Cooper to meet some other tripawds. Count me in. My schedule is nuts, but hopefully we can figure out something!

Cooper is a hound-collie mix "mutt" who was badly injured as a puppy and lost his leg at 7 months of age.  We adopted him after the operation.  He's a wonderful companion and comforting presence in our family.

WHEEEEEE! Oh my gosh you guys this would be our first official NE get-together. Let’s keep the convo going and let us know how we can help promote it.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

YAAY we have interest! 

Hopefully we get a couple more – maybe this can go out on the next TriPawds e-blast?

I’m open to suggestions to visit and I love research too – this is one place I always wanted to visit, though it might be too far for some, I know we have MA and Albany, NY and I’m in CT.   I guess it depends on how many we get.

I cannot make any promises, and as you all know I can’t take Huck lol. But once you decide the where and when if I could find a cheap-o plane ticket I would try to get there. To many if’s to count on me but I’m watching to see how it all rolls out.

Hugs,

Jackie

Hi guys! Just like Jackie, Rusty wouldn’t exactly be a traveling companion, but maybe I can make it.  In Jersey, so it would be a manageable drive.

Gina

Rusty "The Bunnyman" adopted us in 2014.  Aug/Sept 2017, back left leg amputated (HSA cancer).  He is cancer free, at least for now.   He is hopping around, getting spoiled by Mommy Gina & Daddy Nick, new tripawd parents who are still learning! Head Scritches & Sandpaper kisses for all his fellow tripawds!

I guess it’s an exceptionally busy time of year for us.  Depends on where we get together, also, and how many days involved.  Our best chance could be March 30. The following Wednesday we leave for vacation in Delaware, so it’s tight timewise and $$$ wise.  The weekend of the 13th I have a hockey game, although I might be able to find a sub, but can’t guarantee.

We love the idea of Dog Mountain.  It’s probably 3.5–4 hours from here.  When we are in Burlington VT we often think of heading over there, but haven’t yet.  It’s about an hour and a half from Burlington so timewise we haven’t worked it out.

Ohhhhh, their story (The Hunecks) is so sad!! 🙁

The only weekend listed above that I might be able to do it is March 30th, but that’s iffy. 

Distance is about 4 hours for me and Coop.

I’m thinking we should try another weekend in May or maybe June – I don’t want it to be when it starts getting warm, Tai doesn’t do well in the heat and July/Aug are probably prime vacation times.

Are those months more open for anyone interested?

I agree. Could be too cold in March,…. and…. I am in the hospital! I will probably be out of work for two weeks. Had emergency surgery, and won’t be able to lift or have a dog pulling me around. So…. May or June work well. At that time of year, though, ticks can be bad. We will figure it out. 

Cooper meets up with his siblings on the beach in Gloucester every November for their birthday. We could do something like that in late April or early May before the beach restrictions for dogs start.  Just as an alternative to having to stay overnight somewhere.
