I put a few pics on Ty's blog. Couldn't get them to post here. I have a bunch more, I will keep them coming. If anyone knows how to get them over here, feel free. I am sure as usual, it is user error.  I agree with Bonnie, let's start planning for next year. Hey, why wait a whole year, we could plan a Fall Pawty. Yesterday went way too fast. Lori, Ty & the gang

TY GUY, Best Black Lab ever! Diagnosed  and had amp in January, 2014. Kicked MRSA's butt. Earned his angel wings on April 16, 2014. Run Free my boy and don't forget a shoe. Ty is a proud member of the " April Angels". Ty sent us Daryl, a Tripawd rescue in Sept. of 2016. Daryl is 5 +or -. We are also Pawrents to Chandler, a Border Collie mix who is 15 and 1/2, Lucy, a Corgi who is 7, 2 minis, 2 horses, and a feisty cat named Zoe. Zoe had a non skeletal Osteosarcoma removed in July 2015. No Chemo, she was at least 16. She is going strong although she is now completely blind. She is now close to 20 and her hobbies are eating and sleeping in front of her personal heater.

We must all be on the same wavelength. Deb, Sally and I had just emailed earlier about another party soon....a year is way way too long! The fall would be perfect. 

So I totally slacked on my photography job. I took 143 pictures (not the 20,000 I promised). I spent quite a bit of time running my mouth, hugging everyone and petting the pups. Half of the time I forgot I even had my camera 🙂  I'm going to steal a few pictures for the slideshow, esp that one of Jim and Rene. Hope that's ok!!

DEB!!!!! Not only are these pictures perfect...but your commentary and "thought bubbles"...PRICELESS!!

West Virginia.......other brother Daryl.....LMAO!!! Brilliant stuff!

And very nice the way you tied in how our Bridge occupants sent us everbody or had their paw on is in some form while we were all at the plawty!

Still can't stop smiling thinking about all the wonderful aoul deep connections, fun and GRRRRRREAT DOGS!!

Love everybody so much!!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Hey Gettysburg would be a terrific Pawty place!! Yep, a year is just too long to wait. I had a blast and wish I could have stayed longer. Poor Chandler is still recovering. He hasn't had that much action in a long time. I think I only took 43 pictures and Eric took a bunch of those for me. Yet another reason to have another pawty, more pictures. By the way, talking, laughing, hugging and petting pups is much more fun than taking pictures. If you can get any of mine from my blog, feel free to use them. Lori, Ty & gang

Okay, I've come to realize that cats are boring (well, in a good way). It looks like all the tripawds dogs had such a great time, along with their folks, at the pawty. Could you imagine if some of the tripawd kitties showed up? Mayhem.

This is an event I need to go to so I could meet all of you and love your dogs. Frankie Huckleberry will be welcome to sit on my lap all he wants as long as he howls me a tune.

Happy you are all home safe.

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Alison, 

We were all definitely thinking about our friends that could not be there, as well as Spirit Shelby, Angel Sassy, Angel Snoop, Turbo-tail Murphy, Angel Gus, Angel Jersey Girl, Angel Harmony, oh, and Franklin,  and so many others that I could go on for a long time.....You all were definitely there in our thoughts. So hoping many of you can be there next time. 

I also post my vote for a "sooner than later" party! A fall party would be so great!! If the weather is a bit cooler, I may be able to bring zany Zuzu with me. It would be amazing if we could find a place at the beach somewhere to be able to take our pups and have a fabulous day near the water. I also like Lori's idea of Gettysburg, that would only be 20 minutes from my house, lol !! But no matter where we decide, it will just be fantastic to get together again. 

Much Love to all, 

Bonnie, Angel Polly, and new crew

Wow everyone! Love love love these pics, we're just now catching up after a lonnnnnng drive to Nashville yesterday.

What a PAWTY! It was so fantastic to meet everyone and give real hugs!

I can't even begin to tell you how Jim and I, Wyatt and Spirit Jerry, are truly amazed by the beautiful people and animals of this community. We feel so blessed and fortunate. The VA pawty was proof that our friendships go way beyond the initial Tripawd journey. The connections made here are really a life-changing experience. It's apparent when you meet someone for the first time in person, and feel like you've known them forever.

We will have more photos soon, promise! Probably not till after Blog Paws, this is a crazy week ahead so stay tuned.
