More cow dogs..with a Belguim or two thrown in

Our cow dog mania continues. Much to the chagrin of my dogs
We still have Ezri, Terran and Linka (one more week)but this weekend we had two of Nerice's dogs, Ally (cow dog) and Diego (whippet). So that made four cow dogs, 3 little snugglers, a tart and a fawn..whew.
Diego shows how stinking cute he is ..
He makes the smallest little ball..(I forgot to change my white balence in this photo from the night before..doh!)Diego couldn't tell the difference between the cow dogs and started to snuggle with Dana instead of Ally. I think he knew Terran wasn't right b/c Terran is a lot bigger.Ezri..she remains as entertaining as everFour cow dogs..But throughout the cow dog invasion, we were busily attending events. Last weekend we went to Ladysmith,VA for the Dog Days festival. Which was a lot of fun and actually ended up being quite the money maker b/c we oversaw a 'game' and subsequently got the proceeds. Shiloh shows off her Halloween bandanaAnd Dante got the Dog Days bandanaCali...I don't know what to say anymore...This little one cracked me up..he was a puppy and eventually the owner picked him up so he could get a proper drinkThen this weekend, Jason and I went back to New Kent Winery..our new favorite place..for a carriage tour of the vineyards! It is going to be quite the place when it is done. Restaurant, polo fields, spa, lakes, etc. The carriage tour was awesome. We got wine, cheese, bread and cherries.

Our ride arrives..Meet Andy and Randy..Belgium geldingsWe begin..the green in front of Andy will be a lake in a few monthsAnd this will be the horse pasture for the polo fields We had to rub their noses. I love the smell of horses!!! It was a lot of fun and I highly recommend for anyone in the area. The weather has finally cooled off and we have more festivals and events planned before it gets stupid cold and I hibernate. We are going to see Robin Williams Live on Thursday..very excited!
Happy Columbus Day!

my question is - how in the world did you figure out that cali like to lay like this? did she jump up in his lap and flip over? did she cry until you held her like this? i just have to know!
