This is Merry Myrtle's favorite "stuffy" to play with. And Stoner the Cat thoroughly enjoys it. Notice the stoned referee in the background........

Sally, 

Just love these videos and pic!! But I gotta ask, why is the cat stoned, lol?! What a great stuffy for M. Myrtle, it is just her size! These two boxing look so much like my Pearl and 12 y.o. grey kitty, Goober......he surely does not take any stuff from Pearl !! And the idea of a new puppy for Myrtle is fantastic.......personally, I love a two pup household, makes things a bit more "everything" !!

Much love,

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

Oh and I clicked submit too soon but that would NEVER fly in our casa.... Jasper cannot hold back from her 'chase the kitty' mentality. Shelby would do the pounce and stance but Jasper has darn near pulled my arm off over a cat. I've never had a dog before that was this motivated to "chase the kitty"... And the cats ALWAYS run when they see us. 

In fact, this morning I was taking Jasper out for a kick potty before I left for work and for some random reason, a neighbor was walking in carrying 2 big cats and Jasper started barking up a storm and then would NOT do her business... once she loses her focus on the task at hand, all bets are off... 

Too funny!

Ok Sally, how long did that stuffy last. I need to get one for Lucy. Maybe as a get well gift. She got spayed on Tiesday

That stuffy is bigger than both pugs put together big-grin.

Those are very patient kitties.....love videos of Myrtle and Stoner!! Tanner had a bad habit of chasing cats when we got him. Then our Big Bella Queen B whacked him a time or two and now he runs if they look at him sideways. He still barks at them sometimes trying to get them to play, but they just look at him like "stupid dog" and walk away. I'm pretty sure that's what Stoner was thinking too hehe

Loved it.  I still can't believe that cat tolerates her so well.  Ms Myrtle I hope that stuff lasts longer than the 2 walking harnesses did at my house that Snickers decided she was going to eat the buckles off of.

In my house - that stuffy would have lasted a day! Jasper is a skilled destroyer!!! Thankfully she just chews her own things! :-)  

Maybe Jasper needs a good swat in the face from a cat to get her to stop. It's seriously awful - I can pick her up since she's tiny but still ... manic!

And congrats Lucy! You definitely deserve a new baby!!!

Sally- Just sayin...I think stoner cat keeps his stash in or under that chair.  Why else would he take on Myrtle?  Such a beautiful happy video. We need those!

Myrtle!  Looks to me like youre telling your mama you want a kitty of your very own!  That stuffy sure does look fun though....But wouldn't it be fun to chase a little kitty around the house and then have a nice snuggle together afterwards?  i think so...your very own little Jill!

Jill is a 9-year-old tuxedo kitty. She was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in June 2012 on her toe in her right hind leg. Her leg was amputated on 12/12/12 and she completed four rounds of chemo (2 of Carbo, 2 of Doxy) in April 2013.

Thanks Sally.  Love seeing Miss Myrtle having so much fun.  She is such a darn cutie.  I love when the pups drag around their babies out of the corner of the mouth.  Too sweet.  And you named one of you cats Stoner?  Really?  Sally!

;)  Karma, Adelaide and the crew, and our angel Brendol

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.
