This is going to be so much fun!  If you go to the PuppyUp walk website (link at the beginning of this forum), you can "join" the team and create a personal page with a picture of your Tripawd or angel.  (No one has to of course. . .)

Michelle!  It would be sooo awesome if you could come!!  I'm getting excited to meet everyone!  I've been a little MIA here on the boards lately. After Ollie went to the bridge so soon after losing Max I've been having a really hard time.  Finding it hard to get past all that and back into the land of living.  I think it will do me good to be with people who understand that grief takes time to work through.  This is going to be so much fun!

Linda, you know we are here for you. You contribute so much, so allow us to give back to you, okay? Let us help you through those really dark moments.

It's wonderful that you'll be going to the "family gathering"! Happy Hannah and Snoops planned meeting when their humans were driving through Vieginia. Sadly she transitioned before. We still met and, although bittersweet, it was very healing znd heartwarming to be with Snoop (who was whipping that crap's butt) and his family. Esther and her hubby then came to the Virginia lawty the following year (Snoop had crossed over) and they found it very healing also. And trust me on this, you WILL feel Max'x and Ollie's presence!

All who jave had their pups transition, bring their pictures for some group photos around the Tribute Leash! They'll be wwatching from the Bridgeway-cool

This is going to be such a great ggathering on so many levels! Cannot wait to see pictures!! And Michelle is coming too?? WOW! Impressive group of peeps and dogs and Angels!heart

Lots of love to all!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie 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!

http://www.sher.....lisle.com/ Is the link Donna gave us.  It's in her posting on the Wheaton Puppy Up! Page under fundraising page here if that makes sense.  I'm more computer illiterate than anyone else here so check that posting out to make sure I've got it right. 😀😀. Fingers crossed for you to be able to get the time off.

Definitely Michelle!  Or Paula can get a room and I can get a room and you can spend half a night with each of us! 😂😂.  As soon as we know if you can go we'll figure it all out.   Whatever you're most comfortable with is fine with us.  We just want you to be able to be there. Mini vacations are so much fun.

Awe thanks Sally for you being you!  I think because Ollie required so much care those last few months I'm just somewhat at a loss with what to do with myself.  Between Max and Ollie the last 8 to 10 months were crazy taking care of furfaces 24/7 so it's just left a huge void.  I think this get together is just what I need.  I so wish you were closer and could also come too!  Still got extra room 😉😉.

I don't mind roomies.  I just didn't want to intrude.  🙂  I will let everyone know as soon as I find out.  I will ask my boss on Monday or Tuesday since Mondays are really bad in the call center but I did request it in our time off schedule.

I'm just waiting to book our room until I know that I have that Friday off, too.  It shouldn't be long though.  I love the Friday evening get-together idea!
