Okay, if this embed thing doesn't work, I'm sure you computer geeks can findnit on YouTube because that's where Bark Box reproduced it..And, evennthough this ISN'T a commercial for Bark Box, I just could not bring myself to cancel Happy Hannah's monthly surprises from them. The first one that came after she transitioned was rough. I told myself I would give ito a shelter and cancel after that....still couldn't do either. Saved it as if she would come back...or something goofy like that.................And now Merry Myrtle thoroughly enjoys opening up her Bark Box every month...and that makes me smile!

Okay....paws crossed for the Budweiser puppy video.......

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!

OMG .. in tears here ... I left shelby over night sometimes when I was w/my ex (he couldn't have dogs at his apt and I was only really gone about 10 hours - I would come home super early). I feel like a total a-hole now when I look at this video. Oh God I hope Shelby can forgive my selfishness ....


what a sweet video! Thank you for sharing!

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 came across this video a couple days ago on facebook, and yes, I absolutely love the commercial, and the message; it reduced me into sobs.....kudos to Budweiser for all their awesome and meaningful messages they put into their advertisements.......and of course, what can I say? I melt at the sight of any yellow Lab now, and probably always will.....

Thank you for sharing this with all of us here, it is so worth watching this as many times as possible!

Much Love,

Thanks for sharing this Sally!

Tuck is looking at me right now with the "same" look as the Lab in that video when he was waiting for his owner.  Melts my heart.
