Too cute! I just realized how long her tail is. It has grown a bit ahead of her body LOL.

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

Oh my, to think we all will hopefully get the honor of watching adorable Merry Myrtle grow !! She is just a baby fledgling and will certainly find her outer grown-up voice! I am giggling at how much she acts and even sounds like my black Lab pup, Pearl right now.......although "little" Myrtle is a bit larger than my Pearl! I want to smoosh-kiss her on her nose !! laughing

Much Love,
Bonnie & Angel Polly

I agree, Bonnie !!! We get to see her grow! Is it rude ask how much she weighs? LOL 

And I didn't notice it before ... water bottle or vodka bottle?!! 😉

Yay Mrytle.  I love that puppy bark.  At least it does sound like a big dog bark.  Snickers has a yappy bark.  I call her my yappy pup sometimes.    She just has a higher pitched bark.

 

I love these videos of Ms Merry Mrytle.

 

Hugs & love
