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

I don’t even know what frosty paws is!? ( but then I only sort of know what a puppacino is, too…) so yes, we only deal in real ice cream 🍦 😊 Cherry-yoghurt as a matter of fact, we don’t go for anything less. Oh, the crunchy before the slurpy is a waffle 😊

I wasn’t sure if that made a good substitute for spaghetti so it went here 😳

Maaaaannnnnnnniiiiii!!! We COULD have the entree’ round and now the dessert round!!! Despite the wind there was such concentration! Magnificent form! Perfect placement of the kissable snout and tongue! And such balance not to use the paws! Mannnnnniii, you are really looking good there kiddo! CharlieBear would LOVE to meet you because, he too, is an intent but gentle eater. DaBears HQ gives this 12 paws up ( RubyRoo deigned to vote as well). Huge hugs and PyrPaws all around Manni! Now, go ask for an entree’!!!

Anything makes a good substitute for spaghetti if we get to see Manni slurping it down! For a minute there I thought he was going to attack a giant pan of schnitzel 😉

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

I’m guessing “Frosty Paws” is a states thing! I always forget you aren’t stateside. smiley They are dog-flavored and in my opinion vile (don’t judge – I tasted Shelby’s once). Here was Shelby enjoying one celebrating her three month ampuvesary! Image Enlarger

OH! Cutsie!!

Manni only took a liking to ice cream 3 years ago. Before I thought that every dog liked ice cream, but nooooo. Mr. Particular only started to go for it if it was yoghurt-something… on the up-side though: he has also always been very concentrated when chewing. No swallowing-it-whole deal going on here, which is nice. -And really cute to see him chew even the tiniest of treats 🙂

And yes, Jerry, of course he’s had Schnitzel before… he’s also the one with the sausage water… 🙂

He’s been suffering a bit lately though because his mom turned vegetarian a few months ago… someone call animal protection!!!!

Awww Manni! You are relishing every single lick and bite of your delicious ice cream. And you do have the most excellent table manners, great focus and determination but also delicacy. Soooooo sweet!

Gorgeous pics of Miss Shelby Lynne too.

Oh, and I didn’t know what Frosty Paws was either. Glad you asked, Tina. I thought it was maybe a breakfast cereal laughing
