Dogs, Dogs and more dogs!

It was a dog weekend. We had our offical adoption of Cali on Friday night. And it wouldn't be an 'event' at our house without dinner and alcohol! Nerice brought her dogs over and we were able to get a moo-cow dog picture of Maggie, Dana and Ally.

Luckily we got all the dog stuff out of the way early. In true fashion, Brian and Gil had a moment...

Then Gil had to prove himself to Jenny as well. Notice Cali..never moves. She is getting a rubbing and could care less about all the commotion going on around her.
We are keeping Maggie and Booyah for the Ridlon's as well as Lulu for JAne and Matt. So we have a houseful. Here is maggie enjoying the sun for moment today. She is doing really well and having a good time.
And Booyah..such a sweetie. He is a sweetie and very handsome.

And as a disclaimer this picture was taking a few months ago. She hasn't changed physically but after following her around today with the camera..I realized her fear of all things with a lens is quite deep rooted. I realized I was traumatizing her just by trying to take her picture..maybe she spoke to an aborigine and feels it is taking her soul. She is pretty scared of everything..shaking through all Meet and Greets and crumbling when anything makes a loud noise in my house. But she is sweet but I am working on getting her a backbone.

Yesterday we had a Meet and Greet at the local Petsmart. We had a record number of dogs I believe! I brought 5, Kristen brought 8 and Amanda and Kenney brought their 2. You can see pictures of the event on Amanda's blog. You won't see Jason at the MG..he had too many Irish Car bombs on Friday night and was green on the couch! But afterwad, we all came back to my house. So put all those my house.Starting from Cali (down in front) and working around clockwise is Cali, Maggie, Clayton, Blue, Dana, Stella, Dante (he is peeking) Jasmine, Stanley, Luke, Jaime and Sandy. We are missing in this picture Ana, Lulu, Parker, Shiloh and Booyah. They are in the living room. It was a lot of fun though. Can you imagine having this many dauchsunds or terriers? We would be bald!
And for a final is Cali, Booyah and Shiloh striking a pose today in the sun. The weather has cooled off quite a bit so it isn't impossible to be outside.

i'm glad i was outside during the adoption party and was able to miss most of the crazy goings-on inside the house. good to know that in the middle of the summer, by the fire is the safest place to sit. =) i had so much fun and can't wait to do it again!!
