This and That

 I have been out of town a lot lately.  Three out of four weekends in a hotel has been a bit tough and I leave again  next week for another work conference...Minneapolis. I'm not terribly excited.  I will be home in time to start the holiday travels, but at least that is with my family and not alone.  The one weekend I was home, JRG had their fall picnic.  Our friend Brian stood in for Jason as Cali's pillow.
 And of course, it isn't a picnic without ice cream.  Dana gets the longest tongue award.
 Cali's eyes in the photo make me laugh.."this is so good and so cold!"
 I did get a few photos of Dana in the sunshine. I have a new lens coming soon, so hopefully I can get some better indoor shots. I find that is where I spend most of my time. ;-)
 Just a little ETS.  Dana has gotten so grey! 
 Speaking of grey..Dante has turned in to a dappled doxie!
While I was taking normal shots of the others, Cali was behind me doing her viscous impression.  Notice the pink poodle is never far from her playing...
And on a sadder note, we lost another greyhound friends and frequent boarder.  you probably don't recognize her b/c this is the ONLY photo I have of her and it was taken in 2007.  But we kept her probably 3-5 weeks a year.  She was petrified of the camera.  However, you probably would recognize her "brother" Petey the chihuahua.  But Lulu lost her battle with osteo on Friday.  Her family let me go see her and say my goodbyes.  She was a very sweet girl and we will all miss her!

Our greyhound group's annual picnic is one of my favorite days of the year. Looks like you had an awesome time and beautiful weather. I'm so sorry about Lulu. What a beautiful girl.

Dana, you look very regal in your greenness. Being away from home sucks. Especially if it's a weekend. We will miss you camera-shy Lulu.
