Oh wow that is pure JOY! I'm smiling big here, seeing the fun they are having! icon_lol It's amazing that they've had such health challenges to deal with and now look at them both, just loving life and making the most of the day. BRAVO!!! Makes me want to go do some play bows and roll around in the sunshine too!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

You have such special pups sally ❤ obviously because you are such a special dog mama!

Oh Sally! Those videos make me so happy!! I love to see Myrtle doing so well, getting around so well. you wouldn't know she was blind watching those. and yes, Frankie is most certainly Frankie. Wouldn't have it any other way.

Huge reward for what you all have gone through in the last couple of years. My heart swells three sizes bigger seeing Myrtle so happy!

Mega hugs to you and your pack!sp_hearticon2sp_hearticon2sp_hearticon2

Just popping in to say hi and saw this wonderful video!  Thank you so much for sharing this!

It does the heart good. 🙂
