Depends how “Great” the “Greater” is. Does Winnipeg and Montreal count Winker ?  You can all meet in the middle – Winnipeg!

I've seen a few tripawds from Alberta and west SK the last few months, but don't remembers others from BC this year. Maybe Genie recalls some. I bet there are lots in Vancouver even if they are not on this website.

Tehya, Not that I can recall there are other tripawd members in B.C., I think you are the first!

Though there was a guest poster “j wager” in 2008, once posted about his greyhound tripawd Jamaica.  He only mentioned that they went to Western Canada Specialist in Vancouver.

I’m looking for other tripawd’s in the Calgary Alberta area…..

Tai – 9 yr old lab. Diagnosed Osteosarcoma Dec 18/09. Front right leg amputated Dec 21/09. Started chemo Jan 7/10. Lung mets discovered Sept 16/10. Valiant to the end on Oct 26/10 when cancer reappeared in a leg and we made the decision to set her free. Forever in my heart where not even cancer can take her from me.

Well Calgary is getting closer! Not that I mind meeting in Winnipeg and having a Salisbury nip party with a Jeannie’s cake!

Hi Tai, Tazzie's Susan might know if there are other Calgarian tripawds.  But as far as member is concerned, Fiammetta's rescue story is here.. 

Try PM sugartrish.  Perhaps Admin or Jerry can track her down for you.

Good luck!

Hi Tai

I was in Calgary in July and August when Tazzie was diagnosed and he had surgery and initial chemo there (Western Canada specialists, same name as Genie gave for Vancouver), but am now in Winnipeg. I'll be back there sometime in spring but Tazzie unfortunately won't, having passed in early December. I noticed a few blogging tripawds in Alberta and western SK. I think they were closer to Red Deer. Names that come to mind include Finnegan but I know there were a couple others. Don't recall seeing them on the forums. I'll let you know if I find out more. I met a couple of other OSA tripawds at the clinic including one big brown dog (maybe a Rhodesian ridgeback) that was taking longish walks at River Park.

Tehya – a Jeannie's cake? I guess I am still too new here. I definitely know Stella's breakfasts very well. Stop in if you get here!

We live in North Vancouver and our lil guy became a tripawd pup last week.  We would love to meet up with other tripawds in the area!

Yay! We hope you find a bunch of folks up there, I’m pretty sure we have some members in your area. Do consider registering as a Tripawds member here so we can learn all about Harley and your adventures together.

Hi there,

I maintain the Tripawds of Alberta Chapter.  You can find us on facebook…we have a few “honorary” members from BC so maybe you could hook up with them or we do have an upcoming Tripawd Pawrty event, if you can fit in a trip to Calgary 🙂

Cheers 🙂
