Not much of a cook. Get a lot of “prepared” stuff from Whole Food sometimes…like a side of salad snd a bowl of Marinara Spaghetti.I saved for my”Easter Feast” ronight after work.

Sometimes things just don’t work out like you plan…..

Frankie, Myrtle, have you seen my spaghetti,?:

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!!!

Well Sally, I’d say Frankie looks quite guilty. I hope they shared it with each other at least. I hope the Easter Bunny brought you some chocolate that you can have for dinner.

I love your dogs….

I was thinking that they both looked like they were in a carb coma!  guilty for sure!

aw-shucks

Donna, Glenn & Murphy 

Murphy had his right front leg amputated due to histiocytic sarcoma at 7 years old. He survived 4 years, 2 months & 1 week, only to be taken by hemangiosarcoma at 11 1/2 years 6/12/17

Too funny!  I like vet how they are sleeping all wrapped up in each other like puppies.  With nice round pasta bellies.

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

Not sure why word “vet” got added.  Ignore it.

“vet” It’s just your computer corresponding with Sally’s tavlet!

Yep, it sure looks like it’s easy to figure out the guilty parties. You need to make one of those “dog shaming” signs for them!

Kathi and the Turbotail April Angel…and the Labradork

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

Oh Sally, I am laughing so hard. Sorry! Frankie looks pretty guilty. Of course Myrtle just pretends to go on sleeping. As I am typing this, I just looked over and Chandler is eating a dirty tissue he got from the trash. Nothing is safe! Sorry your Easter dinner got eaten. Oh here comes Chan with another tissue, gotta go!!! I won’t tell him your guys got spaghetti. Hugs, Lori, Ty and gang

ahahahaahah, boy they are good about eating your dinner.  What was it the night I called broccoli and something?  Definitely carb comas for them 🙂  OH and I think Myrtle was like it wasn’t me it was him.

Shelby Lynne; Jack Russell/Shiba Inu mix. Proud member of the April Angels of 2014.

October 15, 2000 to April 8, 2014

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

Hi Sally!

Oh my goodness, what an adorable duo – cuddle buddies! I think they look pretty satisfied with themselves.
