Spirit Trouble Comes to Knoxville

well, i guess knoxville must be in the geographic center of ‘what’s going on’, cause once again we got some tripawds visitors at our house.  maybe we just live close to texas, these folks were from texas just like fortis’ dad, so maybe that’s the charm.  whatever it is, we had a fabulous visit with shanna and bob…and of course spirit trouble was with them too. 

at first i was a little scared, meeting new people is not always my strong suit…but it didn’t take long to figure out that bob was my kind of guy..he can really handle a treat jar!!!  he took great care of me and brother sam during the trip!!  and miss shanna, well, she just couldn’t stop loving on me and talking about how big i was and how good i looked.  they brought us lots of prizes and treats from texas…the trouble mug really seemed to touch charon’s heart.

wish they could have stayed with us longer, but hopefully they can swing by again – such a great visit and so many wonderful stories about spirit trouble and duke and sister jane and all of us.  like we’d all known each other forever.  geesh, who’s gonna come see me next????

  1. It was an awesome visit. Gayle, Sam, and the human family could not have been better hosts.

    Having my hands on another tripawd was golden. Gayle is so inspirational.

  2. Wow! That looks like a pawsome visit! Knoxville is such a tripawd hub! But those East Tennessee gals are hard to resist!

    Too bad there’s not a pic of Sam and Ron!!! Oh wait! Is Charon even there???

  3. Awww you guys, how cool that you got to meet up! Aren’t Shanna and Bob great?

    Maybe they came to see you because you have a nice Southern accent too?

    My folks are thinking they might be next. Look out!

  4. Dear Charon,

    Looks like you guys had a great time! I bet Shanna and Bob are a blast to hang with. I’m so glad you guys were able to get together. It makes this journey a much more tolerable one when we can share it with those that understand the depth of our love.

    I’m sorry I missed Gayle’s 16th ampuversary celebration but wanted to wish her a very happy 17th. I pray she is doing well. She is such a beautiful girl….a true tripawd hero!

    Say hey to the family and give Gayle and Sammy a big hug for me.
