So, I'm pretty sure we won't be using Frankie in our Tripawds donation request from Starbucks. Although, it could just be we haven't found the flavor he likes. Of course, Merry Myrtle loving it! I'm leaving the greasy black and greasy Puppy Latte slime on the car for awhile. If Starbucks doesn't make a donation to Trilawds, we'll let the world see what's happening inside our tummies when we have a latte!!winkerlittle-devilway-cool

Merry Myrtle loving Starbucks! Frankie..not!: http://youtu.be.....SGT5ZLDhN4

Okay these are short. This is Frankie's first outing to Petco. It's quite a challenge for me to even stand, much less walk, as these two pull me every which way on their leashes!! As you can see, the employees are GREAT and helped me out tremendously!!

Sooo, looks to me like Merry Myrtle and Frankie may be hitting Petco up for a Tripawds Foundation donation! Or, they may just consider banning us from the store! crying

While nobody's looking Frankie gets cookies: http://youtu.be.....bHYDVpDRsM

And perhaps one of my all time favorites...Les (one of THE nicest staff members ever, along with the other dear lady) was trying very hard to focus on helping a customer with a Ferret sale in the background. Needless to say, he has his priorities!!

Myrtle & Frankie & tummy rubs at Petco: http://youtu.be.....aBDohMgGgU

And if you don't have a Tripawd Ruffwear harness , they really are GRRAT! And what was fun was h ow everyone commented on what a great looking harness it was and commented on the TRIPAWD badge (I call it the Tripawd Badge of Honor)!

Thanks for watching and sharing the fun day with us!!

Love to all!!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

I love it.  Frankie didn't like the puppy latte.  Shame on him.  I know those videos are priceless 🙂   I didn't think they were behaving that badly.  Just looked like Frankie wanted to go explore a little.  Everyone knows Myrtle.  🙂

They are so cute and that bark of Frankie's good thing the girls are outside or they would be barking along with him LOL

WOW.... I am impressed that you can video AND hold onto them. And I can't get over how friendly all those people are, from the Starbucks to the Petco. I can promise you - LA people (me obviously the exception) are NOT that friendly. People look at Jasper in the store but that's about it. No one comes up and offers us cookies like that! Only at the checkout. WOW.

I can't imagine why Frankie wouldn't like the puppy latte... I promise I'll take Jasper this weekend. I can't get out to the drive thru during the week ... it's not worth the migraine from battling traffic! 🙂 

So cute though... thank you for sharing your fun day with us!

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

Hahahahaha! This had me cracking up, as I was remembering the tripawd party and you trying to hold onto Myrtle and Frankie. I can't believe you got them both into Petco! Who knew Frankie was so sophisticated with his latte?! ha

Alison, I've decided that you need to move to the East Coast. Between the heat, the traffic, beaches that don't allow dogs and now people who don't go completely gaga when they see Jasper........It's time to move 🙂  We have beaches, good weather (actual seasons), traffic is nothing like LA and the people are friendly! Plus, you have Sally, me, Bonnie, Lori, Deb and Cheryl all pretty close together. I'm just saying.......

Sally I think you must have grown Arnold Schwarzenneger biceps since we saw you last, how did you hang onto them? WOW!

When Wyatt encountered a Ferret, which was all the way a hotel lobby at Blog Paws, he just went totally insane. I'm impressed that your pups did not. That's awesome.

Maybe Frankie is lactose intolerant?

YAY for the Tripawds Foundation donation hit-up! 🙂

P.S. That's the Tripawd Convert Harness that Frankie is wearing, Myrtle has the Ruffwear Front Range on.

I finally got on the laptop and saw these videos. For some reason the iPad wouldn't let them play. I have to say, those two are really quite well behaved for being in Petco. Ollie has only been to the pet store one time, and he was so busy "shopping" that we finally had to leave. Maybe now that he has learned to heel, we will try it again.

I love the way that Frankie keeps expressing his opinion. And what can you say about Myrtle? Anyone who thinks that Mastiffs are vicious dogs really needs to meet her

Kathi and the Turbotail April Angel...and the Labradork

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 what I would love to live around more people like me!!!! 🙂 I am definitely coming (with or without Jasper but hopefully with) to the next VA tripawds gathering! 

Rene - we're the same - Jasper goes bat crazy over the rodents in Petco. Or if there are cats there for adoption, we can't even be around them. Her prey instinct goes nutso!!!! 

Seriously - Sally - you did  an amazing job w/2 pups! I think you guys are definitely road trip ready!!!
