Let Us Give Thanks for Our Tripawd Heroes

three legged dog thanksgiving posterThis week we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday here in America. It’s a day to reflect and remember all of the gifts, big and small, that we each have in our lives, and to give thanks for their blessings.

Here at Tripawds, we are incredibly thankful for our Tripawd heroes and their pawrents. The love, support and encouragement that’s shared in our community is unlike anything we ever imagined this website could be. We are so thankful for the friends we have made, and feel deep gratitude for allowing us to be a part of your lives.

Our dear friend Sasha, Spirit Lalla‘s Mom, has created a beautiful Tripawd Thanksgiving poster featuring many, if not all, of our Tripawd friends who have submitted photos at one time or another. If we missed anyone, we are very sorry, please know it was accidental.

You can print your own copy of this beautiful 8.5″ x 11″ poster, by downloading the high resolution PDF file here.

From all of us to you, we wish you a beautiful Thanksgiving. Peace.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m certainly giviving thanks today. There my be no turkey for me and Jim this year, but I’m going home! I woke up this morning and was still in the hospital, so I got up on my own right away and waited for the doctor. I told him to take me outside where I showed him I could pee just fine. Then I told him to call Jim and Rene and let them take me home.

He told them I’ve “bounced right back” and I’m not sure if he’s just making fun of me or what. But they must have been really happy and excited to come get me. I can’t wait either. We’ve got a long ride home but I couldn’t think of a better way to spend Thanksgiving day! They’ve set up a big soft bed in the back of the truck that is more comfy than anything else I have at home … except maybe my couch. I’m just glad I don’t have to spend another night at Davis.

We’ll add some pictures of my cool scar next time. Until then …. ARF ARF ARF (“Gobble Gobble”)!
