Oops you shouldn't coddle pups if they are afraid of stuff like thunderstorms (it reassures their fear) but WOW what a full house!! It must be CRAZY over there!

Forget Disneyland, your house has to be one of the happiest places in the world with all of those precious pups around. :) Looks like they were all very well behaved.

My sentiments exactly!

When I first went through the pictures, the one didn't come up and it was a bit of a scare until I *found Jack*.

Phred meant when my son died last summer. He drove 3 hours so he could dogsit during the visitation hours and during the dinner after the funeral for my 5 and Christy's 3. I don't think anyone thought to take pictures. He had never been to my home and he picked up a key from the funeral home and walked into a house with 8 dogs in in it. Fortunately they all had met him at the Findlay Dog Park meetings before hand.

He had never been to my home ...

and walked into a house with 8 dogs in it.

Fortunately they all had met him at the Findlay Dog Park meetings before hand.

I hesitate to make light of a very sad occasion ...
But thankfully God was my Co-Pilot those two days!

Dakota (Christy's Great Dane) was loose in the house - along with at least two others -
I had Bisquits In Hand when I entered - attempting to act "confident" ...

Dakota stopped *BARKING* long enough to *snatch* ALL my bisquits and
gulp them down - then resumed non-stop barking - as well as give me The Eye!

After about 30 minutes EBBERbuddie was a Buddy and happy to take a bissquit
withOUT barking or *snatching*.

It wasn't till later that I learned Dakota can EASILY stand up, grab your shoulders with
her front paws, and deliver a very damp *kiss* all over your face! http://petoftheday.com/i/our_smilies/eek.gif

Dakota ... deliver a very damp *kiss* all over your face! http://petoftheday.com/i/our_smilies/eek.gif

Was this from personal experience? http://petoftheday.com/i/our_smilies/biggrin.gif

YUP, it was!! http://petoftheday.com/i/our_smilies/tongue.gif

After I dried off and cleaned my glasses, I decided we were all going to
take a walk around the block - TWO at a time.

I "paired" em up one BIG and one Small ~ Dakota and Pipi were the first to go.
Some of the neighbors got a *chuckle* out of that!

Well it sure likes like our babies enjoyed their stay with grandma and grandpa!! Thanks for watching them!!!

Ralph and I had a nice trip to Houston, although it went by very fast. We flew out Thursday in time for Ralph to go to the Bachelor party, Friday was the rehearsal, Saturday, the wedding, and Sunday a BBQ at the new couple's home. We flew back early this morning. It was nice to get together with our college roommates again. The silly part is two of our roommates live 130 miles south of us is Middletown, Ohio, yet we went all the way to Houston to spend the weekend with them! Guess the roommate that got married will have to plan more parties so we can all get together!! I'm loading picturesnow, and will add a link in case anyone wants to see (And there are pictures of our friend's poodle!)

Great pictures Amy! Was nice to see all the roomies together again. Just sad not to see your brother a part of it all. I guess I had not added that Rob was suppose to be a groomsman. They kept him part of the program - just letting people know that he was not "here" to be a part of it. Rob roomed with Amy's group of friends the last couple years that they were in college together. The others finished a couple of years ahead of him but they all remained friends.
