Just a little summer dun with my BFFs.  Blind Merry Myrtle and Tripawd Frankie having a watermelon  picnic.   The Oaktown Pack started the tradition  several years ago.  

I love listening to the slurping and chomping sounds, especially  from Myrtle.  She approaches each bite with such gusto!  

Happy summer everybody

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

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!

Heeee heeee! Oh this just screams summer, I love it! They are so so gentle with the watermelon, and even kept it on the cutting board most of the time. Way cute Sally, thanks for sharing! 

I don't know what happens if a dog eats the rind but I've never been brave enough to let it happen. Do you know if it's poisonous?

Here's a flashback to the Oaktown Pack Sheriff Codie Rae's birthday celebration, complete with steak and watermelon!

Awww....loved seeing the throwback to Codie Rae.  And thanks for pulling up my raccoon   watermelon family.too.  I still have generational  visitors💖

I think the Ind itself isn't  bad for sogs, but of they don't  chew ot up thoroughly is when it can cause tummy issue.  And Myrtle would jave woof it down whole if I would jave let her😱

And just one more throwback with a quick glimpse of my very, very gentle  Happy Hannah sharing watermelon  with kitten.

Those videos are the cutest!  Dogs and watermelon sound like the perfect summer combo to me! sp_hearticon2

Griffin lived an amazing life for 11 years! Diagnosed with osteosarcoma on March 17, 2020, Griffin's right forelimb was amputated on April 2, 2020. Ten days later he was running and playing fetch! Lung metastasis discovered in July 2020 did not slow down Griffin and he lived joyfully for the next 7 months, passing peacefully at home on February 11, 2021. https://griffin.tripawds.com

Awww Sally what a great video! Look at how good she was while waiting for the kitty to finish. WOW! It's precious, you need to put that on your YouTube account. Let me know if you'd like help.

OH ok so I guess the green part causes belly aches. Makes sense, I sure don't want to eat it either!

Sally thank you so much for sharing the videos of Frankie and Myrtle enjoying the watermelon.  Chief might eat watermelon but Jazz no.  I need to get him a little and let him try it.  🙂

I love it so much.  I hope you got to enjoy a slice of watermelon too 🙂

Love the videos! It's fun to see all of your pups, Sally. 😊 Cute kitten, too -- I would have never thought a kitty would like watermelon. I should try some out on our crew!

Ok, i did not forget!! Just needed time which seems to be in high demand in my life anymore...🤪

So, this comes in three parts.  Some of the video got lost but long story short Bo doesn't like anything healthy 🤪🤪 No carrots,  apples,  green beans... he's like his papa. Meat and taters boy and preferably fried 🤯

I thought we were sunk in the water for sure... i was pleasantly surprised ❤

Spoiler alert.... this is not edited.  We have been canning all day and then i cooked cajun fried catfish,  fried zucchini,  and french fries so I'm pooped. Please excuse any imperfections.

David was afraid we wouldn't be able to upload such a large video.  

The first bite (unrecorded) was me trying to show Bo how good it was🤣🤣

Hugs❤❤❤

I have been looking forward to his reaction😊🤣 He was too funny.  I think given a decent opportunity,  Phoebe might just like it too ❤
