Okay...this is my supper bowl! I thought is was ample sized for my ice cream and cupcakes so I was pretty contentx!!! Content until I saw how big that lanky, floppy Merry Myrtle's bowl is!! And she doesn't even know how to properly hold her bowl!
She's cute but she's not the brightest M&M in the bag!! Although, she did get a much bigger supper bowl than I did! Maybe she's not quite so daft after all!
Oh...and some of you may remember my buddy Bodie. It was nice to reunite with him at the bridge!

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

That is one huge bowl Ms Myrtle. I think Myrtle needs more ice cream, cupcakes, steaks & food LOL. I love Happy Hannah's bowl it was a great size.

The size difference can be calculated in pugs.
Happy Hannah's bowl would hold one pug, Merry Myrtle's bowl will hold two pugs.

Too cute! I love the pictures of Happy Hannah carrying her bowl around. Hey, Hannah, you know what? I think Myrtle's bowl will leak when Mom puts ice dream in it. I bet it has teeth holes in itlove from, Lori and Ty
