Oh Sally! Just love that video, and it was clear how much Mrytel loves that new baby!
You are such a great mom to Frankie and Mrytel!
My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019. With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer. I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud! He will live forever in my Heart!

Michelle (and Baby. Simba too💖), and Jackie! I didn’t mean to scare ya’ by bumping that title again. Actually, it kinda’ startled me again too when I was trying to find it to update. That’s why I started right off the bat that she was okay. Yeah, it was kind of an uncertain time. And yes Jackie, we want pictures of Bo fetting his puppuccino!
Purrpuccinos for everybody! Love it! And seeing Purrkins savoring every lick is priceless!- Thanks Holly!
Nancy, glad you enjoyed her video. Gave me a chance to go back and look at it and remind myself she’s a happy doggy😊
Love to all❤
Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Dear, sweet Sally. Everytime I read one of your posts I think that in my next life I want to come back as one of your dogs. It’s evident that your home is so full of love that Frankie and Myrtle show that love in their spooning.
I wish Merry Myrtle many more pain-free days. Let’s celebrate with puppiccinos, purrpicinnos and chocolate!
Hugs for all,
Kerren, Missy Mona and Eli

Hey I got scared too but then I kept reading and what a TREAT! YEAH! This is super duper news. I can’t believe it’s been a whole year. Wow!
There ain’t a Starbucks for 100 miles where we are but if there was you know Wyatt Ray would be slurping a pupaccino right up with everypawdy else!
Thanks for the update Sally, it’s always nice to let everyone know how things are going. And to include a picture, well that’s icing on the cake. YAY!

Awesome news! Definite YAY! for good pressures!
Myrtle definitely earned that puppuccino. And Frankie too!
