Fixed that for you by grabbing the "Photo URL" from your MySpace album and pasting it into the Image URL field using the Insert Image button. Detailed instructions here.

Love that pic of Roman - it's like he's channeling all that good sunlight/energy into his cone.

Too cute.

Jackie, Abby's mom

Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman. Tripawds blog, and a more detailed blog here. Please also check out my novel, What the Dog Ate. Now also in paperback! Purchase it at Amazon via Tripawds and help support Tripawds!

Thanks for getting the pic up!!! Roman had a fungal infection from a spider bite that would not heal until we sprayed it with desenex, he's got a 2x2" scar in the middle of his back from it, wish we'd heard about the desenex trick earlier.

Max got a new cone of shame today, his old one was so big that he couldn't even lay down with it on! Hopefully I can get a side-shot soon, all the poofles of his little lion-mane get stuffed inside the cone and it kind of resembles a mayonnaise jar full of fur.

the bravest poofle dog who ever lived!

Oh what a cutie! Even a four-legged monkeydog is irresistible.

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