Fairs, GiGs, degrees and lots of dogs

It has been a while since I have posted. Just too much going on! I will try to start from where I left off. A few weekends ago we went to the Bank of America Environmental Fair. it was a beautiful day to dress up the dogs. Ana is looking very regal in her donation jacket and fuzzy sticky thing on her head. ;)

We did make a nice discovery..Dana is not only cat curious but snake curious as well. There were a few boas and pythons being shown next to us at the fair. She was soooo obsessed. We would let her get close when they put them away. But she was crazy over the snakes..not exactly sure what she would have done if she would have caught one. But by the end of the day, she was ok enough to let Jason hold one while holding her.

After this event, all I did was study. I had my master's thesis defense on Friday. I studied and worked on my presentation for the entire week. And I passed. I have a lot of work left to do on my final draft of my thesis. But it has to be turned in by next Friday so it is almost done!! Then everyone will be required to call me Master for a little while. ;-) j/k
Then we took off to the Greyhounds in Gettysburg event in Gettysburg, PA. We bought a bunch of greyhound stuff as well as getting Dana two new martingale collars..they make her look pretty. But I didn't get too many pictures of the actual event but here is one..
And finally, we are keeping Kristen and Gyeong's kids for a few days while they take care of some family issues. They are fostering Rose who is a sweet but young red girl. She is very busy and in to everything. She will keep her new owner on their toes that is for sure! But she is a lot of fun and loves to be loved and play! This is Jason hanging out in the yard with all 5 greyhounds (yes..we currently have 8 dogs). Rose is the one escaping with the stuffie.
But she only escaped so far before Jaime wanted some of that crab! They tugged for a long time. It was really cute. They are fun but they make my house seem very small!
and the final update is that Jason got the patio finished! And my parents gave us the bench for my graduation present. We bought the recliner and the chimnea is on the way! It makes for a nice private local to enjoy a glass of wine on a beautiful spring afternoon. ;-)

Can't wait to use patio. A glass of wine on a cool night by the chimenea sounds quite relaxing.
