last minute decision, the dogs want a party....the more the merrier, 1pm so feel free to join us.
lynn is bringing hamburgers and buns...i am bringing potato salad and watermelon...i don't know who else is bringing what but i bet it will be very good.

sarah is all shaved down, angelina found the working clippers and started right in as soon as she arrived this morning....she looks like a very sweet shaved dog. tawnie has a vet appointment on monday but we already started her on abx for her skin infection...they had their first field run and (quite a few) ice cream sandwiches and sarah has already learned to jump out the window (self actualizing dogs do not let windows stand in their way when they are stuck in the house and you are in plain view in the front yard.) tawnie has been sleeping most of the day, she really is not feeling 100% yet and has been busy since she arrived so very smart girl that she is has headed to bed to rest and recoup.

i am feeling better today...all is well (or well on the way) with the crippled beloved crew. jesse's new personal yard construction starts on monday and then the americats outside porch is right behind. oka played with pretty much anything worth playing with and got to share a corona with mo. instead of the mp room this afternoon, we retired to the memorial garden...cole had a nap, nola bugged boo-ka (L&L sp???), oka drank beer, phoebe gave kisses and the rest of us just relaxed enjoying the view.

sometimes it is so beautiful here it takes your breath away.



Where exactly is the memorial garden located. It sounds like a great place but I have not seen any pictures of it. (hint, hint)


geez cheryl i totally forgot all about this, i have been so distracted with all the stuff happening around here...thanks so much for posting it!!!


saw this posted on Craiglist...Cool!! carol can this be crossposted on other lists??

nibble, shop + train: a fundraiser for you + your dog!
thursday, july 24 @ 6:30-8:30 pm
1340 davie st (@ jervis)

Finally, a fundraiser you and your doggie can support together!

nibble. Join us for a glass or two of local wine, and yummy snacks for you and your pooch!

shop. As you nibble, browse through bwh's selection of the cool gear for your dog and shop guilt-free knowing that 10% of total sales will be donated to our charity. Also, you'll get a bwh store credit for a future visit for the same amount!

train. Our exceptional dog trainers will lead the dogs through an hour-long introductory (or refresher!) class on urban street smarts. Participants will get useful tips and coaching on heeling dogs through crowds, politely meeting and greeting other dogs and people, ignoring distractions, and much more. The class will end back at bwh with an opportunity to ask the trainers questions about your doggie, and book complimentary training consultations with our trainers.

the cause. in addition to a fun + informative evening, we're proud to support the Senior Animals in Need Today Society (SAINTS), a local animal rescue organization dedicated to providing cozy, loving homes for senior animals. Established in 2004, SAINTS has provided a caring home to 150+ animals. Our donations will contribute to purchasing toys, treats, food, warm clothing and beds, as well as to their veterinary care to help ensure that their last years are spent in comfort. On this evening, we will also gratefully accept your donations of used toys, dog clothing, beds, bowls, fleece blankets in good condition for SAINTS.

Participation in the training class by donation to SAINTS (suggested donation $10). The class is not appropriate for dogs with aggression or severe behavioural issues nor for very young puppies.

Join us for the nibble & shop portion of the evening, even if you're not able to join us with your pooch! We're looking forward to a fun night, raising lots of money to support an amazing charity.

sorry to post on this thread, but i need to get a message to Eva and can't log in. It's about some bunnies.


Spelling error that's ok he has a weird name. It is BUCA....because he is all black like licorce, we related it to the tasty beverage SAMBUCA. Anyways Buca had a blast making new friends...don't bug me I'm sleeping Cole, just here for the party Oka, yes I have a nice butt Phoebe, grumpy because my butt looks bad today Roxy, sweet hanging by mom Levi and just playing hard to get Nola! Thanks for inviting him to the party, he has already asked when are we going back there again?
