A Pawesome Pawty and Pretty Pendant

Posted by: | June 21, 2010 | 5 Comments |

This last Saturday I had a blast at the big graduation pawty that Mom had for my big brother.  Mom was worried that it might get confusing for me to have so many strangers around the house that day, but it ended up being pawfect.  The only thing was, she moved all the furniture on the patio so that my regular path out to go potty was blocked.  But it was great, because everyone I bumped into was super friendly and ready to pet me or slip me something off their plate.  I gave kisses and leans to everyone I met.  Mom got all teary because she was so happy to see me having so much fun, with my head held up high.  Of course there were lots of people there who had never seen a Tripawd before, and they made the usual “Whoa…. where’d her leg go?” comments.  Dad was not as quick as Tika’s Dad was long ago when he said “A dog this good you can’t eat all at once”.  He could have freaked people out and said that we were running low on hamburger meat or something. HAHA!

Anyway, here are some pictures of me making the rounds:

Queen Nova of Tripawds prepares to meet her subjects

Don’t you love my University of Michigan bandanna?  My brother is the biggest Michigan fan, people were joking that he even has maize and blue dogs.  Emmy wore a maize-colored Michigan bandanna.

A Kiss from the Queen

How many high school graduates do you know out there who are lucky enough to get the Queen to show up at their pawty?

Licks and Leans for All

I was a little nervous at first, so I leaned on Dad.  But you can see that my tail is wagging, it was so exciting to have all these people there at my house.

Kisses for Uncle Bryan

There were lots of people there who hadn’t seen me since before I became a Tripawd.  Everyone was thrilled to hear how good I am at kicking cancer’s butt!

Don't Be Afraid

Some people were afraid of me.  I get that a lot because of my size, for some reason some people think that just because I am big that I will eat them. And sometimes people get scared when they see my leg is missing.  I don’t know what’s up with that, but I try to make them feel comfortable.

My Fat Sister

Emmy spent the entire party walking from table to table as the walking garbage can.  Here she is about 23 meatballs, 6 hamburgers, 8 hot dogs, 4 bratwursts and 3 vegan burgers heavier.

Bella the Neighbor Rat Dog

Remember Bella, the neighbor “rat dog”? She came to the pawty too to yap at people.  She’s got some major Wyatt Ray Dawg ears going on, dontcha think?

Well, Mom wanted me to add one more thing.  Just today she got her Tripawd pendant in the mail from 4PawsForever in NV.  It is just pawesome, and she put it on right away.  Here’s what it looks like:

And here’s the back of the pendant:

Engraved with my name

And it even has my name on the back of it!  How cool is that?

Ok, that’s all the latest.  I am hoping that now that Mom is done with all that graduation stuff that she will spend more time keeping up with our Tripawds family.  I will keep on her case!

Licks and Leans to All My Loyal Subjects,

Queen Nova of Tripawds

    Love the bandana. Love the uplifting story of your weekend AND love that you’re keeping that awful cancer at bay. You are an inspiration.

    All Hail Queen Nova! You look pawsome in your pictures! Truly regal!
    And my mom got teary when she saw your mom’s pendant. Don’t know what’s up with all the wet face stuff lately… but I must admit I like the saltiness when I give her kisses! 🙂

    We love your photos and it looks like you had such a great time, Nova. I can’t imagine people being afraid of a Great Dane; you’re such gentle giants. Love the pendant, too! I got mom to check out the website and their jewelry is beautiful. Mom may have to order something! Love, Blazer
