First. shout out to Micheele for suggesting I wedge my Big Barker Bed between the baxk seats and front seats to prevent Merry Myrtle from trying to sit in mynlap snd drive. It worked really well....unt Frankie f i gured out he had enough room to stand on the edge of the bed and try and jump out the sun roof!! Ohhhh my...this xrive ro the Virginia Pawty is going to be such an adventure!
Andyway...first picture...everybody behaving nicely at the drive thru waiting for their latte. Frankie's more interested in trying to swueeze out the window. Merry Myrtle is laser focused on her Starbucks!!
Getting ready for their very own puppy latte: http://youtu.be.....Mc_0zUT4RQ
The reason Frankie couldn't get to his cup of latte....look closely...Miss Myrtle has him pushed pretty tightly against the seat s he couldn't reach it! I got him so off camera though

I would so love to see the pics of Myrtle and Frankie but sadly my work computer isn't allowing them to be shown and my smartphone isn't being too smart right now and pulling up the internet....
However, the visual of Frankie attempting to jump out the sunroof had me busting out laughing!!! That Frankie is such a crazy jokester!!! I can just see mom driving down the road with Frankie's head sticking out the sunroof with his ears flapping in the wind!!!
And Myrtle hogging all the puppy latte's...priceless!!

I didn't think about the sunroof. Hmmm will have to come up with something for that now. But that picture did make me chuckle and you will have to teach MM to share the lattes. 🙂

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

Franklin, he was the Happiest Dog on Three Legs! Diagnosed 09/26/2012 with Osteosarcoma, amputated 12/4/2012. Had a wonderful 5 1/2 months painfree until he ran for the Bridge on 5/15/2013. Always in my heart, and always a guardian angel of my pack... You can follow his Tripawd Adventures, before and after, in my blog, Frank'n'Farter!
