Hey everypawdy, the new and improved ME is coming to your town!

When the snow starts falling here in Colorado, my pawrents are wussing out and hitting the road. I like the snow but they don't.

We will be making our way out to California to see my peeps, but before that we'll be in Washington, Oregon and Northern California.

And I want to see YOU!

Here are the general areas we're thinking of stopping for a night or two between mid to late October and Thanksgiving, can you come pawty with us?

  • Puyallup, WA (I want to meet Dr. Pam!)
  • Portland / Salem, OR
  • Eureka, CA
  • Santa Rosa, CA (we'll be there around Turkey Day)
  • San Francisco, CA (can anyone meet up on Sat. 11/21 or Sun. 11/22?)
  • Stockton, CA

Then we'll be in Southern California for all of December, and start working our way to Arizona in January. We'll be announcing get togethers for those areas soon!

Let's get this pawty started!

Probably won't be able to meet up with you guys in Nor Cal because Chloe and I will be going to my parents house for the week of Thanksgiving. Maybe when you are in So Cal in December since I plan on staying at my parents house in the LA area between Dec 19th to mid Jan!

-Chloe's mom

Chloe became a rear amp tripawd on 7-29-10. Another tumor was removed on front leg 2-20-14. Found 3rd tumor on neck 2-2015, but she's still kicking cancer's butt at age 14. Chloe's blog

What happened to Vegas???!   Comet was going to put on a new pretty pink bow and dust off her “cage” so she could meet you guys!  (The pretty pink bow enhances her growly face) 

Her Retired AvatarComet - 1999 to 2011

She departed us unexpectedly  January 23, 2011 at the age of 12 1/2.

She was born with a deformed front leg and a tripawd all of her life.

Hey Wyatt

IMHO, nothing was wrong with the old and unimproved you, but I know what these humans can be like. What's wrong with a few barks and bites, tell me.

I'm sure I'll be back in Santa Barbara over Christmas, so maybe we'll see you, and other SoCal pups, at the beach on Boxing Day again. Do your parents want to pencil that into your busy schedule? I'm sure my mom can make it a few days before or after that day.

We could make the November nor cal meet up a weekend you will be around, like last year, maybe the SF weekend at Mill Valley?  We are close to both SF and Stockton too.

And don't forget- Livermore is wine country!

We are having a Puget Sound get-together October 3rd but I'm sure we could all meet up again later in October.  Just let us know when!  Julian needs more big dogs to play with since he now weighs about 120 pounds.

Wyatt is coming to Puyallup????? So maybe its not to get ear scratches from me but to meet Dr. Pam, but that is fine too.

The only requirement is to learn to pronounce Puyallup!

Pew( like in a church)-al(like a mans name)-up( the opposite of down)

Pew-al-up…Pew-al-up…Pew-al-up… just keep repeating it all the way from Colorado!

There is going to be a Puget Sound “Meet and Greet and Sniff” in our northern region in just a few weeks, so I will bet that we will  know how to throw a good get together by the time you all reach the Evergreen State!!!

Spirit JD's mom – from Puyallup!

JD

One Tough Girl

(1999-2010)

-Diagnosed with osteosarcoma of her left front leg –

-Amputation July 23 2010 –

-The cancer didn't get her, but she is gone-

-She fought the cancer and loved life till bloat brought her down August 29th, 2010-

Now she watches over her mom and two new sisters, the Quad-Paws Serena and Maya

Wow you guys, I'm SO HOPPY that YOU are hoppy!

Maybe when you are in So Cal in December since I plan on staying at my parents house in the LA area

YESCH! That's when we plan to pawty with Maximutt too. And Tazzie makes the pawty! Yeay! We'll figure that part out later.

What happened to Vegas???!  

Later baby, we'll catch you on our way to AZ somehow!

would Wyatt Ray like to meet Whiskey??

You betcha! Count on us sometime either right before or right after Turkey Day!

We could make the November nor cal meet up a weekend you will be around

I think a poll is in order for the location. Hmmmm…maybe the East Bay is better?

We are having a Puget Sound get-together October 3rd but I'm sure we could all meet up again later in October.

Mom says it depends on how the weather goes here, but if all goes well and doesn't start dumping snow too early, we'll be in your part of the world around the last week of October or first week of November. The 2 Million Dogs walk in Auburn/Tacoma is happening on 11/7. Can anyone make that? We could all hop together!

 I'm sorry these dates so up in the air, we'll know more in the next week or so when we see how the weather gods treat us. This is soooo exciting!

Vegas baby! I can't wait! We're definitely on the way to Arizona!

Sadie is my 9yr old Rott/Shepherd mix. Diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her right scapula 1/28/10. Our brave girl had her amputation 2/13/10 and her last chemotherapy on 6/6/10. Unfortunately, a tumor appeared in her back right leg and on 10/7/2010 Sadie's earthly journey came to an end.  On 10/24/2010 we adopted Ranger, a handsome Rott/Lab mix tripawd (got hit by a car) I think Sadie sent him to us.

We definitely have to meet up in December in the LA area or wherever you plan to be in So. Cal.  When you know your schedule more we'll be there – we're flexible and can't wait to pawty down! cool

My sweet golden Mackenzie.  She became my angel on Dec 29, 2010 at the age of 8 1/2  although she was always my angel from the time we brought her home.  She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in Sept 2009 and officially became a tripawd (front leg) on Nov 5, 2009.  She will be forever in my heart and now she's running free with all of our other tripawd heroes.  I love you Mackenzie!
