Depends how “Great” the “Greater” is. Does Winnipeg and Montreal count ? 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.

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.

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.
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!
Tai, if you don't mind the driving, there is a golden retriever Catie in Edmonton.

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 🙂
