Awwww, she just melts my heart. She looks quite happy and quite content. You can see that she's at ease and not stressed at all ❤️

She's clearly where she wants to be and with her heart human ❤️❤️

As we've all learned through the tripawd experience, dogs are incredibly resilient. They adapt so well, whether it be losing a leg or losing vision. 

Myrtle looks so happy slurping down her Starbucks. And I love the little cock of the head at the end. I think she may be an honorary Cocker Spaniel. 

Sally, you're doing an amazing job dealing with both Mrytle's and Frankie's issues. They're the luckiest dogs on the planet to have you as their mom. 

David and Rocky (and Baxter now too!)

Rocky had his right front leg amputated on Valentine's Day 2017 after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma.

He joined the September Saints on September 3, 2017.

He is the toughest, bravest, sweetest and best friend I'll ever know.

Hey Sweet Sally, the nose knows. Dogs have great sniffers, better than cats, and much better than ours. She is so happy and your loving face is always her vision. 

I'm happy to see she had an outing.

Hugs to all,

This makes me smile with MY heart, to see Merry Myrtle back to her merry, puppaccino slurping enthusiastic self. She is looking very secure and confident and I LOVE the way she looks right at you at the end and cocks her head, like Thank you, Mum (and could I possibly have another?). And also how she is careful to lick up any stray drops from the door. Such a responsible girl to tidy up after herself 😋

And I agree with you. She can totally hear the smile in your voice. Just as you can hear someone smile when you are talking on the phone. She can hear you smile and your smiling face is emblazoned across her heart. The wagging tail is a MASSIVELY positive sign. 

All Merry Myrtle sees is love. From the moment she wakes up in the morning full of anticipation for the treat-filled day ahead, to when she goes to sleep at night, with her heart happy, sandwiched in between the two beings she loves most in the world, from days break to day’s end all Merry Myrtle sees is love. 

I know she dreams about you too, Sally. I know she does. Contented dreams, filled with your beautiful, smiling face.

Oh Sally it is so lovely to watch your beautiful girl slurping away, back to her wonderful routines with Mom 🎀🍦

Like Clare says, one can always spot a smile even without seeing the person, the tone in your voice goes straight to Myrtle's heart, she knows how loved she is 💓

She is the happiest girl, Sally, she has the Mom all of us want to have if we come back as a dog and a goofy, fun loving three legged companion, life is good 😍

Sending you all my love and cuddles to your babies 😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹
