So every Tues is my day of and Merry Myrtle and I go to Starbucks for her Puppy Latte....shhhh....don't tell her...its just free whip cream but she thinks it's a very expensive cup of coffee........and we go to Petco for "social hour". It's usually the same staff in Tues and I think they look forward to it almost as much as we do!

Anyway...I had THE best video in the world of Merry Myrtle today at the drive thru...there were no cars behind us..I got out of the car and got a great video of her "anticipating" her latte...and then THE BEST VIDEO EVER of her slobbering the whip cream all over herself...a car pulls up behind us....THEY START APPLAUDING AND LAUGHING HYSTERICALLY!!! I'M NOT KIDDING...THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN ONE OF THOSE MILLION HITS VIRAL THINGS ON YOU TUBE!!! EXCEPT.....when I went to video that part...and got home to look at it......yeah.....I had the blankety blank thing on friggin PAUSE!!!! PAUSE!!!

Soooo....what we have are some SHORT clips of her at Petco...a short cl i p of puppy atte anticilation...AND....the lady behind me took a picture of us with her phone and got out and got my email and sent it to me...sooooo.......not as good as the video....but it will do until next Tuesday!

Merry Myrtle entering Petco...look ing...looking..: http://youtu.be.....5CGFKw0r0o

Telling her t.lay down...yeah..rght!

Now if only Jasper liked the car... she could get her own puppy latte! LOL - I've never heard of such a thing! Love it!

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

I can't get this goofy grin off my face...big-grin

I love watching Merry Myrtle videos and looking at her gorgeous pics.  It's very obvious she loves the Petco staff and is excited to see them.  And the looks on her face while waiting for her latte...she's thinking "anyday now".

LOVE THEM!!

Sally and Myrtle, your sunshine and pawsitivity attracts the best people. That's such a great story!

I'd say Myrtle already IS a therapy dog :)
