Q.erry Myrtle and Frankie here! We were putting our heads together trying to see how we could capitalize on this 2017 Virginia Tripawd Pawty thing. See....here's the proof!

We know some of you are not able to bring your dogs so will be sleeping alone. SLEEP ALONE NO MORE!!! We are selling ourselves for Puppy Lattes to sleep with you! Mom says it wouldn't be appreciate to sleep naked, so I, Merry Myrtle, shall wear a thong and I, Frankie shall wear boxer shorts.

Here are some examples of how we like to sleep with our human...or on our human!

Myrtle! Frankie!  Such a warm and heartfelt offer!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!  Would whipped cream in a paper cup count as a puppy latte?  I'm not sure we'll have a Starbucks out in the boonies there.  Put your heads together and discuss and let me know cause I'm all in on this one LOL!

So adorable!!! Can I do a trade? Frankie for a Jasper Lily (aka queen of the RBF)?!? Jasper will also be available for snuggles and cuddles and I can pretty much guarantee she will like anyone better than she likes her old mom. I'm "old news" to her now. 🙂

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

Sure wish I could be there, but from here it's pretty well cost prohibitive. I did check on airfares,though.

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

I hear that!!! Jasper and I are trying to use airline miles but there is no getting around the distance! I am happy I have the means to make this trip but it is indeed one long a$$ journey! I have heard there will be wine and chocolate at the finish line! 

We will miss you... you'll have to make the Northern CA gathering some time!!!

That Frankie, what an enterprising pup!

I so wish we could be there too. Maybe we can set up a Google Hangout? We can see what the signal is like at Jerry's Acres when we get there the first week of May. This would be fun to arrange don't ya think?

Thank you, Myrtle and Frankie. We will hope that we can set up some sort of video so that those of us who can't be there in person can still share the fun.

And yes, Alison, some day I will manage to be in California at the right time for the NorCal party. I understand you are flying into DC. What days are you traveling?
