Sunday at the dog park

Kathi and I met up today at the dog park for a BIG DOG play date.
Isabelle and Lorelei could hardly sit still on the way, because they adore Kathi and her two big dogs, Holly and Gracie. It was also Hooper's first visit to a dog park, and he did wonderfully. We really didn't see too much of him, because once he realized that he had this huge perimeter to run, he was gone...

Hooper's first day at the dog park

Nose to the ground, stopping every once in a while to meet a new dog or person.


Gracie...a big bundle of goofy sweetness. If Gracie was a food, she would be a Cinnabon.

We met a Boston...


His name is George. Tiny. About half a Chet.

Nellie's no lady

I never said that Nellie was a lady, but gee whiz!
Nellie, remember: "A lady reveals nothing."

On the way out of the park, I swung the car over to the retaining pond, and saw a stinker:

This one's just for Mary, because I love her.

And finally...

Male downy really close

A male downy got very up-close and personal this evening, checking out the suet dough, hanging right outside the window. Woodpeckers amaze me, the way they hold themselves vertically with a few stiff tail feathers.

Mmmm, Cinnabon - now that's one sweet dog! Awwww, a little Boston - what a cutie!
Ohhh, I love your woodpecker photo!

I want to know how you get so close to the woody!!!! I need to rearranged my feeders soon.

I wish I were at a dog park today. I only had my two staring at me...wanting some action.

Thanks for the stinker, Susan. I haven't seen one in ages...the ponds are dried up.

There is an award waiting for you on my post tonight. Hope over and pick it up.

Dang. What's a 'stinker'? I know what a 'woody' is :0)

You girls are both a hoot!
