I'd never even heard of this puppy latte business. I hope they do them here, if not I shall show them the video of Merry Myrtle, that should educate them pretty effectively...

Murphy got his first Pup Latte today I don't think he really "got" it lol He took his time with it and only ate about half of it.
(had to cut down my video so I could upload it).... We took the extra home for Cassie & Max
sorry it's sideways .
Now, here is the way our dogs are used to getting whipped cream! I think you'll get a kick out of this. I swear, all 3 of them are able to do this without touching the nozzle.
Donna, Glenn & Murphy
Murphy had his right front leg amputated due to histiocytic sarcoma at 7 years old. He survived 4 years, 2 months & 1 week, only to be taken by hemangiosarcoma at 11 1/2 years 6/12/17

I think he enjoyed it Donna. He was savoring it. I go to Starbucks with Snickers she wants one everytime.
Now mine couldn't do the way yours have always done 🙂

LOL! So Donna... growing up, our family would do that w/our dogs out of the can (and sometime that cheese in the can stuff too). We would also put it on their nose! - no one call the SPCA on me!!!
I love watching Murphy enjoy his latte... he was definitely savoring it. I love these videos... they are all probably thinking "BEST. DAY. EVER."!!!!

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
