“Frankie the nose ” was sniffing out the goodies in their Christmas bags. Merry Myrtle didn’t seem too interested. I thought perhaps she was waiting for her BEST present…..not!

Christmas for Merry Myrtle & Frankie:

Bone chewing while stylin’ their custom designed Rene collars! Frankie looks soooo handsome with his manly jeweled collar. Myrtle is STUNNING in all her bling! Big necks require a whole lotta’ bling!

Christmas for Merry Myrtle & Frankie:

And now we have Frankie liking his Starbucks Puppy Latte for Christmas morning. Funnh, he doesn’t like it at the drive thru though…..shhh….don’t tell Frankie…this is Cool Whip!

Frankie liking Starbucks present!:

Haw haw I love the way Myrtle ran away from it! Too cute! Maybe she smelled Wyatt on the collar?

What lucky dawgs, that looks like a beautiful Christmas for the pack. I can’t believe you have a white couch. You are one brave lady!

Hoppy Christmas to the pack, you guys are so cute all blinged up 🙂

Had to laugh at the “bravery” (synonymous with stupid in my la la land world) of having a white couch!. Here are pictures of what it looks like 364 days out of the year! And that. “rug” they are using as a dinner plate for their slimy bones…it’s a thin washable .mat that only comes out once a year!. I didn’t intend to let them chew their bones in it. But that’s where they decided to land and they were just so darn cute chewing so nicely side by side……yep, they rule my world!

Oh my…one more pic….this is Merry Myrtle hogging both bones. I just love the furrowed head and she savors the chew.

What awesome videos! I’m so jealous that you know how to do this! Looks like a great Christmas they had, I love how much they love each other. I’m getting a collar from Rene for Nitro after seeing how cool yours are. I’m so happy your Christmas miracle came true and your fur kids came home! Hoppy holidays to a truly special pack

Paula and Nitro

Are you kidding???? We Love your pictures!! I just want to smooch that furrowed head of Myrtle’s. I am laughing at your couch. I have sheets to cover sheets. Well, except for my sunroom, They have that furniture trashed. When I was a teenager, I had one poodle mix, nonshedding, no slobber or chewing. She did , however sleep in my bed. I went to my Aunt’s house, she had like 6 Chihuahua dogs and sheets everyplace. I was like, why would you cover up all your furniture, just make the dogs stay down. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! I am so eating my thoughts that day. Thank goodness I did not actually say it to her. blush Right now, Daryl is on my bed, Chandler on the couch in my office( I wanted to change it out for 2 of those fancy chairs at Target, but he couldn’t lay on them), Zoe, my cat is on the bed in the guest room Lucy is on the floor, she cant get up on the couch.  How we do change our thoughts. Cannot wait to see Myrtle use her new mug. BTW, your house looks great decorated for Christmas! And those collars, LOVE them!!!!! Lori, TY and Gang

TY GUY, Best Black Lab ever! Diagnosed  and had amp in January, 2014. Kicked MRSA's butt. Earned his angel wings on April 16, 2014. Run Free my boy and don't forget a shoe. Ty is a proud member of the " April Angels". Ty sent us Daryl, a Tripawd rescue in Sept. of 2016. Daryl is 5 +or -. We are also Pawrents to Chandler, a Border Collie mix who is 15 and 1/2, Lucy, a Corgi who is 7, 2 minis, 2 horses, and a feisty cat named Zoe. Zoe had a non skeletal Osteosarcoma removed in July 2015. No Chemo, she was at least 16. She is going strong although she is now completely blind. She is now close to 20 and her hobbies are eating and sleeping in front of her personal heater.

WOW!!! I missed these the first time around! What a special treat!!! I was offline during the holidays so we missed this completely… these are great!!! 

I think we can ALL understand the furniture issue … I got a new couch last Feb and put a blanket on it. Then about 6 months later, I am like, why? This is a DOG house … dogs are on furniture. And I don’t have guests! LOL 

I am SO glad I saw these tonight. Totally turned today’s frown upside down!!! Merry Merry!!!!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
