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

OH MY GOSH lol.   Sally I think Myrtle is teaching you how to play frisbee by you chasing it LOL.   Too cute.   The funny part of that is you spent how much on that frisbee for her to play with and a piece of scratch paper is what she actually wanted to do.   You know you don't have to buy a paper shredder because Myrtle is it for you :)

 

I love these videos.  Keep them coming.

 

hugs & lots of

She is so stinking cute.  Love the head tilt at the frisbee, like what ma?  I don't get it?  hee hee  I got the girls a kiddy pool and a water throwing caterpillar on Sunday and they wanted absolutely nothing to do with them.  They laid down way out of reach of the water and just watched it with disinterest.  We tried, right?

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.

Oh, I laughed so hard at these great videos !! Merry Myrtle is so precious, just love that face of hers !! Reminds me of my Pearl.....I bring home so many cool retriever toys for her, and what does she want??? Sticks, all shapes and sizes of sticks. I go into the woods behind our house and bring tons back for free.....I do, however, avoid any sticks that move.......
I agree with Michelle......need more videos !!

Love,

Why run after a frisbee when there is paper to be torn?

OMG ...she's such a gentle giant! She's so chillax.... is that the breed? I have never in my entire life owned a dog that was so chill... maybe they react to my personality! LOL .... Even Shelby... till the very end... was true to her terrier instincts to be bat crazy all the time!

Love her! She's got the best face!

Oy VEY! Bhahahahahahahaha! You just gotta love a big ol lazy puppy, she just cracks me up. Not bad for a kid who just wrestled with a copperhead!

She is such a good dog. Low energy & lotsa loving, what more can you ask for?!

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