I love how the little black and white one (can’t recall the name if I ever knew it) grabs your hand to help guide to her mouth! So cute!!

I got JL some gluten free pasta (heck,… it’s for me but I might share). Perhaps we will have a video for later!

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

Holly, you just gave me a great “Happy Hannah flashback”.heartheartbig-grin On the RARE ocassions I did “cook”, it was usually boiling water for spaghetti. No fancy “pasta”, just Mueller’s spaghetti! 🙂 Add ketchup and butter and I have a fine home cooked meal 🙂

ANYWAY…Happy Hannah would stand by the stove and wait for me to “accidentally” drop spaghetti as I was breaking the strands in half. She truly loved uncooked spaghetti!big-grin

So I present Jasper Lily slurping some gluten free pasta… 

It’s rather sticky for sure. And I’m not sure she’s ever had pasta (at least not w/me since we don’t usually have it in the house). But I think she liked it. She was looking for more! big-grin

FYI: The easiest way to share videos here is to upload them to Youtube first (or Vimeo, etc. – any service that supports oEmbed).

Cut and paste the Share link, and the movie will auto-embed into your forum post.

Those eyes Izzy!!!!

Around here we call those ‘watermelon eyes’.  I had never seen the whites all around Obie’s eyes until he got his first taste of watermelon!  I’ll have to cook up some pasta and see what I get with Obie and Elly. 

When it gets warmer we will have to have a watermelon contest- Obie is a shoe-in!

Well these are just superb!!!

A very strong entry from the kitties, so strong, in fact, that I heard Elsie and Meg discussing if they could get them disqualified on grounds of doping (apparently they’ve been eating Canna Pet, or something?). This smacks of sore losing to me, and frankly, I’m a little disappointed that Elsie and Meg would stoop so low…

Jasper Lilly, oh my goodness. Surely a place on the podium is guaranteed for this LA belle! Perfect sixes across the board. Grace and elegance, eagerness, booty, and extra difficulty points for the extra sticky gluten free…

And what a contender we have in Izzy! This girl was born to guzzle spaghetti. What a champion, look at her focus. This is a girl who understands the total commitment it takes to medal. The only question, in such a strong field, what colour will it be?

Sudden explosive right elbow fracture 06/12 (caused by IOHC), diagnosed with End Stage Arthritis 03/15, Total Elbow Replacement 08/15, problems with healing leading to skin graft & skin flap surgery, Chronic Infection leading to implant breakdown. Became a Tripawd 9th March 2016.

Only one kitty is on the Canna Companion for now;)laughing I thought Miss Elsie was on CBD anyway so no disqualifying miss Pie 😉

We were just jumping in for some fun😀 I think personally everyone is a winner here🏆🎖🏅 

Thank you for these fun posts! We sure need to find the balance on this site and this is just one of those qualifying posts!

Well exactly! And Meg. In fact, Meg more than Elsie. She hasn’t got a leg to stand on… (sorry, couldn’t resist laughing)

They’re just trying their luck, Holly. Ignore them, I do. I LOVED the kitties video. I loved the crunchy noises and the way Saxton hurries them to his mouth with his paw is ADORABLE!!!! Gold medals both xxx
