Okay, clearly Merry Myrtle has been watching too much SHARK WEEK. Yes Bonnie, one of the best shows on TV!!

So this is "Part 2" of my previous arm chewing video.

On several of my scuba diving trips we were part of a group that actually did some very well controlled swimming with the sharks......SPECTACULAR.privilege!!

However there is far more danger playing with Myrtle the Bull Mastiff Bull Shark!! No limbs were lost in the making of this video, but the screams of terror are real!!! Tthis is Part 2 of my previous arm chewing post.

P.S. What was in the bag that you wanted it so bad?

Love Sharky Myrtle!!!! :-) too funny...I assume her baby teeth are gone now, right? But those are like little shark teeth for sure!

Jasper is the same... has to chew EVERYTHING but thankfully seems to avoid my arms ...

She really, really loves you!

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

Your house seems like so much fun!!! And you have scuba dived? How exciting, I would love to try sometime, been snorkeling, but not diving. Myrtle seems so happy. Hey, maybe you should get her one of those rubber fake arms, you know like they put out at Halloween. I've got it!!!! She can be a shark for Halloween. I can see it now, all dressed up and carrying that rubber arm in her mouth laughingLove from, Lori and TY
