A Trifecta of Tripawds!

Posted by: | September 24, 2010 | 8 Comments |

Well, we finally got together a small contingent of Michigan Tripawds for a pawty today, in Grand Rapids, MI.  A “Trifecta of Tripawds” gathered to meet and greet…. Rocky, Boo, and the Queen herself, Nova.  It was cool and breezy, but at least it didn’t rain. If it had, diva Nova would have never set foot outside of her private coach. Nova’s quad-pawd sister Emmy was also there.  The Queen does not go anywhere without her seeing eye dog, you know.  Anyway, here are some pictures:

Greetings All Around

As you can see, both Rocky and Boo respectfully followed royal protocol when greeting the Queen.


Rocky was very friendly.  With 3 girl dogs to hang out with, he was pretty excited about it all.

Rocky's Lovin' Life

Rocky was ready for belly rubs.  And he looked great in his Ruffwear harness.

Her Majesty Queen Nova

Queen Nova doesn’t get out much to socialize with the “commoners”… lol. I was a little nervous with her being blind and all, but she definitely enjoyed herself and had no problems at all.


Rocky is such a handsome, good natured boy!

Most of the Lineup

Getting a Trifecta of Tripawds to line up for a photo is not an easy task. Boo loved to run around the park, so she didn’t make it in this picture. From left to right, quad-pawd Emmy, Nova, Rocky’s Mom, and Rocky.


Rocky liked to fold up his front paw.  His Mom said sometimes he tucks it under his body, so he looks like he is missing both front legs.

Glamour Boy

Rocky loved posing for pictures!

Beautiful Boo

Boo is a retired greyhound.  She zips around on 3 legs at lightning speed!  And her gorgeous fur is the same color as Emmy’s.


Such a pretty girl!  It was very interesting to meet other front-amp dogs. Both Boo and Rocky still had their scapulas.  Nova’s surgeon preferred to remove her scapula, even though her tumor was in her wrist.

Dane Licks and Leans

Emmy and Nova enjoyed dishing out the customary Great Dane licks and leans.


New Tripawds need to see video of how fast Boo runs.  She is amazing!  I think she can run as fast on 3 legs as she can on 4.

The Mobile Throne

Queen Nova of Tripawds assumes the position on her mobile throne for the 2-hour return trip to her castle.

    OMG we thought about you pups all day and wondered if that nasty rain ruined your pawty or not. We are thrilled that it didn’t, what fun you pups had!

    We were there in spirit, and so was Jerry. What a thrill to know you all got together and showed the world the power of three! How beautiful!
