Meg just brought this to show me. Apparently a MegaStar HAS to have one. It’s even got a two way camera so you can see each other when you’re driving. Dream on, Meg…

The Pawfect Car?

Meg, Mutt, aged around 11, adopted 31/12/2009. 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.

Whoa! I can see why Meg is lobbying for one – that’s incredible!

Isa would strongly object to the dog washing station – she always rolled in “stuff” because she like the way it smelled. Even if it was 20 degrees and we had to drive home with the windows down.

Keep trying for it Meg! One never knows…

Right rear leg amp 7/12/16 due to OSA. Metastatic lesion on her right front leg, January 2017. Joined the Winter Warriors January 19, 2017. Run free my sweet girl.

Well of course the Megastar needs one of these.  Meg I’ve heard through a very reliable source that your Mum ordered one but….funny how these things always happen…..being new and trendy they’re on back order indefinitely.  They’ll call you when shipments start back up.  So wait for that phone call Meg cause your Mum’s definitely on it 😀.  Being the Megastar you are I’m sure they’ll do their best to get it to you soon right Mum? 😉

Well that’s what I keep telling her, Linda, but she’s got into her head there’s some VID list and VIDs never have to wait for anything, apparently. She’s choosing her colour scheme now…

Hey Meg 👍🏼 Eurydice here 🐮

I am soooooooo excited I couldn’t believe my eyes when I watched the video 📽

I think your Mom should definitely get you one, you and Jasper are the girliest girls we have around here 👑👛 so you could test this incredible car for the rest of us, right? 

Personally, I am a little concerned they might not have cow size models 🚚🐮 but in any case I look super forward to your feedback dear girl 😍

Lots and lots of licks to you and Elsie and a big hug to your Momma from my Momma 👩‍❤️‍👩

Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

It’s funny, I saw this video on FB and immediately thought of Meg’s ride.  I hope you can add a fan as optional equipment.

Hummm, cow sized… I wonder how heavy the ramp would be that would hold her up!

Meg and Elsie Pie NEED this car!! It must have been made with them in mind! 🙂 🙂

I don’t think that had Eurydice in mind though! Maybe her head woukd fit in it, but that’s about all 🙂

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!
