Brindles, balls and santa hats!

I still have Brady..he is such a sweet boy. Hopefully we can find his forever home after the holidays.
But he got his manberries removed last week...I would like to tell all men to use caution before looking at the following picture. He obviously had a bleeder...poor guy. Many a man has crumbled while looking at his hindend. And Katy said we should post our dog's this kills two 'birds' with one stone....

He is doing better now so no worries..but we did feel sorry for him for a while! I am also watching Chilly..his parents are in Florida..the weather is better I am sure! He seems pretty comfortable here..don't you think?

Then on Thursday I went and picked up HFK Dusk (aka Cassie) who was returned..she didn't get along with her new brother very well. So I had her for the day until her foster parents could come get her.

Before the rain hit, everyone had a good time running around in the yard. (You won't see Brady...he is a these days)Cassie looks evil in this one!On Saturday we went to Stony Point Fashion Park for the Meet and Greet. It is fun to walk around the mall with the hounds..we had a great turn out but the weather sucked!!! But I dressed them up in the Christmas finest..Dana looks happy as usual...Cali had a hat on too..but it was too cold to stop and get a picture of myself with you will just have to trust she was as cute as Dana in it! I think Brady was jealous without a hat..Now...the weather changed recently. It was 70 degrees last week and now it is 30! I had turned the heat off last week and thought I had turned it on once it got cold. But this morning, I realized even I was freezing. So I went and checked the thermostat..oops. Forgot to turn the heat ws 60 degrees in the house. Explained why Dante was trying to get IN to the space heater last night ( is on and his fur is HOT)We wrapped Christmas presents last night. I can't have a real tree..too many dogs. But I have managed to put up my little one. It doesn't take up much room and people enjoy making fun of it. ;-) I thought Hemingway and Dana were cute laying next to it last night..And we had segregation...the brindles on one side of the house, the black ones on the couch and the 'others' under the tree...Would you call that Fur-ism? ;-) I hope everyone is having a happy holiday season. I will be going out of town with all the kids later this week..and will return loaded with presents and exhausted before New Year's.

Until then HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Home for the holidays!

We did another haul this weekend! Hopefully Amanda will post some more actual haul pictures..I was too busy to take many pictures this time! But we brought up 5 dogs so they could spend the holidays with their forever home. Two were adopted from Crittertown and I took the remaining 3 home. Cruiser was with me for a bit until his foster mom could pick him up. He will be adopted in a week. Here he is getting a bath And walking around my backyard..I didn't have enough time to get quality pictures! But I kept RJ's Greatful (aka Grace) a 4 year old little bitty girl. Her tongue hangs out the side of her mouth a lot.....not sure what that is all about And who says greyhounds don't sit...
She will most likely be adopted by the end of the week as well. And I brought home Eric Whistler (aka brady) who is 2 1/2 ...and a typical boy.He still has his manberries..he will get those removed on Thursday. He is amazed by the was really cute and funny until he jumped up and bit the glass. All fun and games until the 30 gallon fish tank hits the ground.And what would my blog be without Cali? There is one thing she is good at...relaxing. And she rarely gets out of the new chair. I call this Dante's heaven...on a big cushy chair, on a fluffy pillow, chewing a bone all by himselfI also have Lulu...but as stated before she becomes a quivering mass when the camera is pulled out...freaky.
And tomorrow (Dec 3rd) is Dana's 2 year Gotcha day! It is hard to believe we have had her for two years. She is our Dana roo roo...quirky but very sweet. And she has come a long way since we carried her to our car b/c she wouldn't walk on a leash. She still finds her 'happy place' sometimes..but we love her very much!
It has gotten cold, gifts are piling up in the office, the FedEx/UPS guy stops here everyday, parties are being scheduled...
"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..."
