CHEERS to a bushy four-legger’s perfect buddy. Can’t let the life to exit via with out sending out a heartfelt “meow” in honor of Tricia Wyse LeFevre—aka Day-to-day Kos’s liked animal rights activist and “Pootie Queen”—who left us 8 years in the past lately.

Triciawyse, aka The Pootie Queen

It’s strenuous to even get started on how and why she was once so noteceable. …

She created a area the place nation may convey their pleasure of their pets, their questions on pets, and their suffering on the lack of their pets.

She liked our crowd, saved monitor people, let everybody know when one among us wanted backup or sympathy—and put it at the lead of each and every diary that she would shield the Peeps below any cases.

Probably the most nicest issues this crowd did for Tricia was once to pay her strategy to attend the Netroots Population conference in Windfall in 2011.
