May 23, 2014 – Last run before the 5k on Sunday

Oreo at Mine Falls 5.24.14The drizzle kept almost all the annoying people away. 😉  I MUST finish my run before 8:45am when the gaggle arrives and blocks the exit with their dogs and themselves. Oreo doesn’t mind much; she loves everyone. She did stop smiling until I got her away from the chatty man and his long-leashed dog, then she poured on the cuteness once again.

I did read everywhere that if I get a tripawd then everyone, seemingly EVERYONE, is going to want to stop and talk about her, even in New England. Plus she’s just so beautiful, they’d want to engage us anyway. My pretty princess!

The Wounded Warrior 5k is on Sunday, and I can’t wait! I think I’ll give her a brisk walk before it starts, then put her in the buggy. Don’t want to risk tripping up any runners.

I thought about going to Concord, NH with her today for the March Against Monsanto, but I’m too leery of what kind of crowd it will be, and whether we’d be safe. We’ll do the Meditation Moment at 9:30pm instead, in the relative safety of our own home.

Tripawd mom to angel Oreo, who passed over the Rainbow Bridge on Oct. 7, 2019. I miss her to pieces.

  1. Its true, everyone wants to stop and pet the tripawd! We get stopped everywhere too, lots of questions. It always seems to start with “what happened”, “how’s he get along” and always ends in “he’s so cute, doesn’t seem to miss that leg at all” etc. They all become ambassador’s b/c people think missing a leg is SO horrible…then they meet one and realize how awesome these dogs really are 🙂 Good luck at the 5K! Oreo is so adorable, she looks like she’s grinning ear to ear!!

  2. Oreo, yoj are a pretty Princess indeed!! You look so darn cute in our buggy and yor bandanna!

    Hope you have a wonderful event. I know Oreo will touch lives and inspire everyone she meets! A Goodwill Ambassador indeed! We’ll be cheering for you!

    Be safe and jave a great time…enjoy the bliss of being together!

    Hugs to all!

  3. Oh for sure, Tripawds are superstars in every crowd. You two will look especially adorable. Good luck tomorrow, it’ll be a great day for everyone but especially the Tripawds Nation knowing that one of our own is in such an important event.

    I agree, skip the Monsanto event (although I totally agree on it’s purpose!), you guys will be just as effective sending good vibes.

    Lotsa 3-paws up to you! What a team!
