I had a Pawty!

Posted by GerrysMom in Uncategorized    

Holly came to town this past Saturday and we had the first Midwest Tripawd Pawty!!! (That we know of).  For a relatively short visit, and only two tripawd attendees, we sure had a pawesome time!

I learned that Holly is a goose aficianado, and that the park we met at there are so many geese that the city is actually thinking about killing a bunch.  No need!  Holly and I will relocate them for free – just let us looses on the gooses!

People at the park were impressed by my mad running skillz, but I think Holly’s ability to impersonate a quadpawd was even more impressive.  Holly’s mom and mine had to actually point out to people that she’s a tripawd too.

While I did my best to show off, a much wiser Holly spend most of her time very sweetly going from person to person, checking for treats.

Now, it’s not easy to impress a more mature female like Holly.  My athletic abilities were no big deal to her.  Even my stylish red Ruffwear harness did not turn her head.  Fortunately, with the body of water in this park, there were also dead fish to be found on the ground!  The perfect cologne to attract the ladies.  Rolling in it did unfortunately mean I had to get a bath last night, and the smell made Mom a little woozy, but it was worth it!  At first, Mom had thought maybe my harness would save us from having to do the bath, but I knew to make sure to get those fish guts behind my ear, not just on my back.  The smell mostly came off of me, but luckily it’s still pretty well stuck on my harness – yay!  My harness will still make me a lady-killer for many park trips to come.

We hope to have another Madison Tripawd Pawty – with lots of attendees, once Mom advertises around town – on May 30th (or June 5th if bad weather on the 30th).  Don’t worry tripawd pawretns, we don’t have to go back to the dead fish park.  In fact, the one on the 30th for sure is being planned for a different location (Badger Prairie Park). We hope other Tripawd members/visitors can make it.  All numbers of legs are welcome!!!

Here’s why you should come:

P.S. Mom apologizes that a clip or two got put in twice.  She kept trying to go back and fix it, but kept making the same mistake – haha!  So she gave up.  Hope you enjoyed it!


  1. Sah-wheat! That looks fun! My town is making a new dog park and it will have a lake on it too! Probably no dead fish, though. Keep on pawin’!

  7. I’m so sad I was (once again) out of town and missed this!

    We are looking forward to the upcoming Pawty … if you need help with anything, let me know! I do know there was a nurse at the clinic (Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Care) where Harley had his amputation who had a 3legged dog.

  10. What a fish smelling ladies man you are Gerry! You keep impressing the ladies like that and they will be knocking your door down to visit you!

    Pawsome video! You two showed those four legged dogs who ruled the roost! Looks like a fun day!

  11. Oh and I forgot to highlight the part where I beat some other dogs to a tennis ball, carried it halfway back, and then dropped it and peed on it. Were you all able to see that? I’m all about improving things by making them smellier.
    Mom said that’s not what tennis balls are for. So I asked Spirit Yoda about it and today I took his advice and started chewing on one! Mmmmmm… Mom took it away though. She’s so hard to please!

  12. Hey Gerry!!!
    Awesome video!!! We had so much fun with you and your mom, Gerry! My mom’s been lame this week – visiting colleges with my sister and stuff. And she didn’t let me have the computer while she was gone. But I had an awesome time meeting you! And my mom has been telling everyone how fast you are – at least as fast as any of the quad-paws we met! I can’t believe your mom made you take a bath – my mom made me have one on Monday and now I smell like shampoo. Blech! I’m hoping your harness will still smell like dead fish when we see each other next month. Otherwise we’ll have to find some more dead fish to roll in. I’ll watch while you roll, though. I like rolling in snow better. I wonder if we’ll find any of that?
    Thanks for sharing! (my mom says she’ll post her pictures – but first had to find her battery charger so she could turn her camera on. People!)
    Lots of hugs,
    PS – what’s wrong with peeing on the tennis ball? I thought you were brilliant when you did that. Then everyone would know you had been around. I like to leave my calling card everywhere, too!

  13. Oh – and you can definitely tell Madison they can hire us to get rid of all the geese (even though I call them ducks). I’m there!
