We had a wonderful time reuniting with our pals from last year's VA gathering, and it was a bonus to meet our longtime (in dog years) friends in real life...including our founders -- the one and only Rene and "Admin Guy" Jim, plus Wyatt Ray . Also present looking down and cracking up from the Bridge was Spirit Jerry -- the one who brought us all together -- along with my Lexie, Happy Hannah, Blue Eyed Jake, Polly, Ty, Snoop, Shelby, Sassy, and too many other cancer warrior spirit angels to name...always remembered, and always in our hearts.

Btw, if you think Sally's and Admin Guy's exchanges in the tech forum are hilarious, you should hear them in person! After Sally (right) wore Jim down , Rene stepped in and confirmed that at least one tech issue was not user error! Meanwhile, Tanner had his eye on the prize.

Deb and Angel Lexie* Diagnosed at age 13. Tried radiation first; wish we had amputated upon diagnosis (even with lung mets). Joined Club Tripawd April 2014 & Lexie loved life on 3 legs! Advice: Start physical therapy as soon as your vet clears it, especially hydrotherapy if available :-) See Lexie pics here.

It was an honor to meet Sally's Frankie...a true lap Tripawd if there ever was one. It was also an honor to meet Esther (the lap, in this case) -- better known as mom of Angel Snoop and sweetie pie Jacks (who was back at the hotel room snoozing with his Daddy). It's okay, we won't tell Jacks...

Channeling their angel sisters from over the bridge... Quadpawd Fannie Mae (sent by Sister Angel Lexie) says, "Hey, Merry Myrtle (sent by Spirit Happy Hannah)...you may be bigger than I am, but I still want you to play!"

As expected, when Fannie Mae (sent by Angel Lexie*) met Elizabeth's Tripawd Tanner, sent by Angel Jake, it was love at first sight--maybe even West Virginia-style love because these two look like long lost litter mates.

*Note that although Fannie Mae is age-appropriate for Tanner, she learned all her moves by channeling Big Sister Cougar Lexie, as seen with Tanner at last year's Virginia gathering...

Tanner says, "Dad, Fannie Mae won't leave me alone...I need to catch my breath! By the way, can you pass those chips?" winker

After making his party debut Elizabeth's adorable Boston Terrier Tripawd Rosco, sent by Angel Jake, smartly napped in the shade.

Merry Myrtle pulls out her most convincing adorable mug puppy-dog eyes and tells Esther: "I'm so hungry--my momma never, ever gives me treats or puppy lattes or toys or bones, and I'm so deprived and starved for food and affection...

Uh oh, I think Mom was listening... Just kidding, Mom...kidding!" You're busted, Merry Myrtle! (aka luckiest dog on the planet, along with brother Frankie)

Can't wait to see everyone else's pics, especially Elizabeth's slide show! She and Eric are real photographers with real cameras...

Looked like Lori had a pretty professional camera, too!

Awesome pictures.  I can't wait to see the rest.  Keep them coming.  I know Sally probably took some too.  🙂

Deb,

Absolutely wonderful pics!! I am glad you posted them and can't wait to see so many more! We all had so much fun, but like Sally told me, there never seems to be enough time with friends and a great time together....so true.

Guess we will have to start planning our next party, and coax some others that could not make it this time around..... !!

Much Love to all,

Bonnie, Angel Polly, and new crew
