Fall picnic

Fall is finally here. The leaves are starting to changeAnd the weather is cool and crisp! When the sun is out, everyone gets out to enjoy it! Cali, Dana and Henry stop (briefly) for a rare trio photo!Even though most nights are spent sacked out on the couch..We did have a foster for a few days, Rosie. She is already in a potential forever home. she was a sweet girl
We finally were able to have our picnic this past Sunday. It was scheduled for the Spring .. which really should have been called the Rainy Season as it rained constantly. So after postponing it 3 times, we pushed it off to the Fall. And then we had to postpone it from last weekend. but finally..our patience was rewarded! You can check out GPA's blog for more photos.
Henry shows off his new collar from Houndstown in true style.We had a radar run, which was quite entertaining.
Cali posted the fastest time of the trio at 29mph
Henry came in 2nd with 28mphAnd most of you know 'at home Dana' aka "comfortable Dana"... the Dana in strange places is much different..her Eeyore comes out a bit. So she followed up by basically trotting down the course..turning around and running back to Daddy at 27mph.I have to thank nerice for this next photo. i was holding everyone while Jason took them to the start. So the squawker was tempting everyone waiting!We also had a membership meeting to elect the new board of directors (we welcomed Scott of Beau and Belle fame to the board), go over financial stuff and give a general end of year report. Well..my hounds found the whole thing rather boring (again..thanks to nerice..Cali is laying on my shoe).
I think Henry is a full fledged member..don't you?
Pumpkin and Halloween photos to come..Happy Halloween!!

So glad the picnic was finally able to happen and I think everyone had a greyt time! Love the pic of Henry with his little bit of tongue showing. He's such a handsome guy!

yes, henry's tongue is a winner, but so are his "i'm true to cali" brindle patches. jason could be on his way out.

Looks like that Henry is one lucky boy. Seems like he was to be yours all along!
