Okay, just letting you know this may be a bit long, but well worth it if you want warm and fuzzies and a great laugh!!

Here we go!

Soooo, come home and nice box on porch. Trying to figure out what I may have ordered from Amazon on one of my “less good days” when I give in to an “instant gratification fix” by connecting with my BFF Amazon!

No, not the case (thankfully)! Go ahead and open with unbridled excitement and anticipation! You’ll see what was inside below. Absolutely over the moon with teary-eyed joy AND gratitude! Frankie and Merry Myrtle going nuts with joy too! They aren’t real k y sure why, they just hear me gleefully proclaiming, “OMD (yes, I really do say OMD!)! I can’t beeelivvve this!! Look! Look at what we got! PERFECT!!! These are just perfect!!! Who in the world….who in the world….?!”

No clue inside. Looking at the box frantically for clues. Only return address is mypics out of Maryland. Hmmm…somebody who is computer savvy enough to get pics off my posts…someone obviously who knows how much I love my dogs AND their pictures…somebody with a HUGE GIVING AND COMPASSIONATE SOUL!! Let’s see, that narrows it down to EVERYONE here, although a couple of specific people come to mind!

Ahh haa…I’ll go on mypics.com for more clues!

Okay…quickly tap. Mypics.com…and take a QUICK glance and get off that site fast!!! Yes! Do it now, but get off the site quickly….or not…depending on your preference!little-devil

WAIT!!! I’m doing an edit right now because I see mypic.com didn’t show up as a “link”….so STOP!! Go google mypics.com right NOW!!! Do NOT read any further!! Go NOW and then come back and read the resr!!!!

Okay, now I’m thinking, okaaay….I have a clue, whether I want it or not!way-confused

The kind Soul who sent me these pictures apparently enjoys “sexually explicit” photos, maybe a bit of porno! I didn’t stay on the site long enough to try and see what exactly they “offered”!

So now I’m thinking that “clue” eliminates some of the people who were at the top of my list….or does it??? Hmmmm…….stay tuned for part two!

For now though, let me show you the reason for all my “over the moon joy”!!!!!clap

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

Those are GRREATTT!!! I tried the mypics link, too and got the same site that Alison did. I didn’t want to click on any of the sites, either. Are we sure that’s the right link?

Kathi and the Turbotail April Angel…and the Labradork

PS We might have a pretty good idea about the source.

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

Oh Alison a d Kathi!! I’m laughing so jard I’m in tears!!! NO! As it turned out it wasn’t the right link!!!! clown I went back and looked at the rerurn address again and the CORRECT link is

MyPix2.com. to repeat….MyPix2.com. that’s the correct one!

This story jad an incredible chain of hilarious events.

So after trying to figure out which tripawd member would use a photo site that prints “sexually explicit” as their choice to print Frankie and Murtle’s picture, I get a call from Michelle! She tells me she just got an email from “someone” to tell me to look for a package in my porch! Keep in mind, “packagr” has taken on a whole new meaning after clicking onto that site!

Soooo….I say “Michelle, who’s the mail from?” She says,”I don’t know”. You don’t know?????? Now we all know I’m CLUELESS on computer stuff, but I DO know emails jave the sender’s name on it! If it’s a name you don’t recognize, you do NOT open it because your tavlet can get diseases and spammed!! Even I know that!

BUSTED!!!!!!!!

Okay, this may not be as funny reading this as it was “living” it.

Here, this picture I just took will show you the lovely Soul who did this…the human Soul

I really don’t know what she is talking about LOL.  It was the funniest conversation I have had in a long time.  She even made me swear it wasn’t me.  I was laughing so hard.  I don’t know how she didn’t know, I mean I couldn’t even get anything out I was laughing so hard aw-shucks

Oh and I did tell her I got an email and didn’t know who it was from blush

I just loved those pictures and I thought she needed something of Frankie & Myrtle to hang on her wall.  I am glad they turned out because they shipped right from the facility that did them.  I didn’t think she would try to google it to figure it out LOL (Don’t you know Sally Dr Google gets you into trouble LOL)

HAHA Sally, you have me snorting.  You silly lady.  Cracking ME UP!  But yes, Michelle, is soooo sweet and I think those turned out awesome.  Glad you love them.  However, I think Miss Myrtle May is looking at hers like she thinks she looks better than that!  lol  I’ll be chuckling over this for a while.

Bhhahahahaha! Oh my DOG just now catching up on Forums and LAUGHING my butt off!

Really, really cute pics. This community never ceases to amaze and delight!!!

But eeww. I feel like I just caught a disease by clicking on that link. The only reason I did was Admin Guy said it was OK. But BE CAREFUL what you search for and click on folks, I just got a nasty virus on my machine and don’t even know how, and I’m pretty good about staying away from the seedy side of the Interwebs!

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

Oh Michelle, I wish we had a recording of that conversation! I’ve been laughing all day.

She did…she SWORE to me she didn’t do it…laughing the whole time. So I say, “You’ve got your fingers crossed, don’t you? You’re swearing ro me but you have yiur fingers crossed!”

She was certainly at the top of my list…except just couldn’t reconcile her blatantly ordering from a “porno site”!! Then I’m rhinking…well then..maybe the Admin Guy….nah….just kiddingclown

Seriously, I wish you could see these in person. They really capture so much of who they are in eaxh photo. Merry Myrtle is always giving me that “huh?” look when I’m talking with her…always waiting for the “cookie” word. Frankie melts my heart with his hound dog soulful eyes.

I’ve already written Michelle to TRY and express my gratitude. I don’t have ro tell anyone here what a special Soul Michelle is and how privileged we all are ro be avle ro call her our friend. The friendships formed here start out based on fear, uncertainty and immense love for our animals, and evolve into a Spul connection, a respect, a camaraderie deeper than anyone could ever have imagined…especially among “strangers”.

Michelle, as hard as it is to be on this path sometimes, you always shine your loving light on each of us in a way that pushes away any dark corners of this journey.

Surrounding myself with pictures of my loving dogs is THE best feeling…right up there with being surrounded by the love of this community! And I love you right back!!

Thank yoh Michelle!! superstar

Really no seedy stuff on my computer it is a legit site mypix2.com is where I ordered from.  I only told her that I didn’t know who the email was from because I didn’t want her to know it was me and I didn’t want the box to sit outside in case it rained .  I gave in when it was really driving her nuts and she made me go to where she thought I ordered from LOL.

Sally does so much good for this community that I just wanted to give back to her a little bit. 

I love everyone here.
