I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Pawtee Mash-up

While we were in Quartzsite, I couldn't watch or upload any videos due to constraints on my data/air time.

The video below is a mash up of our 3 weeks,ummm, un-camping. (You can't really call a house on wheels camping, can you?)



I was really amazed by all these dogs' ability to get along; most especially by Stumpy who is known to be a little bitchy and fakes being an alpha type dog in order to convince other dogs not to mess with her.

Watching all these dogs (there were at least 12, at one point) interact, tumble and play, sneak, steal and pillage (next post) made for a great time! Being with a bunch of dog lovers who could only laugh at their antics made that time even more memorable.

We miss all of you!

For those of you suffering from the winter blues and buried in snow up to your eyeballs:
"Summer is almost here - we can see Deer moving around the back yard!"

Well, it looks like Stumpy had a relative there! Rain is an active one and I think probably good for the girl.

The deer photo looks like my yard! Glad to have you back.

First of all, the Momster LOVED the music:)

Then TD wants to tell you that he is sure he saw a replica of Ciara there - Rain - we hope we have the right name, but she acts just like Ciara, always looking for fun, always tossing her back end in some pup's face - what's up with that anyway? We loved the butt-sniffing segment:)

Isn't it just so wonderful to see all those pups together having a great time!!!

Looks like Stumpy had an awesome time. Not sure us three heeler's would be so social among all the other pups.. Although we are good with Suzanne's 5 girls.. The other heeler sure seems to like you Stumpy...

Great photo!
Stumpy, it seems that you had a really good time playing with your friends!

Sandra, those two were tight as thieves (see next post) I loved seeing Stumpy geting a taste of her own medicine!

OP Pack, Ciara and Rain would make a great match for a throw down. I tried to edit the butt sniffing out, butt as long as you enjoyed it, I'm glad it didn't make the cut!

Elyse and Riley, I don't know who had more fun; the dogs or the humans watching them. they were great entertainment!

Heelers, Stumpy surprised the heck out of me, being so social. I think Rain just liked bugging stumpy the most. She was always sure to get a reaction!

Jan, it was like a three week dance marathon!

Terrorzinhos, we had the best time EVER!

I love Rain's slaps to the Stumpy butt!

I would SO fit in with that playing stuff - even if I had to be on a string!

I loved the video!
All of them having lots of fun together!
I am not so sure about all that "sniffing butt"
Kisses and hugs

What a super wonderful movie! I just luved every single little second of it. It sure does look like everyone had a Most Terrific time. I bet Stumpy was pooped at the end of each day with all that pawtyin' going on.

Khyra, that's also one of Stumpy's trademark moves, but Rain took it to a whole new level! We hope we can get together for a playdate when we are mobile!

Lorenza, I'm not a fan of the butt sniffing, either!

Mayzie, Stumpy was totally worn out at the end of each day. But, each morning she was up early and rarin' to do it all over again!

Kari, The fun never stopped!

Looks like "uncamping" was a little bit of heaven for all involved. The deer picture, however, does not look like my idea of heaven... looks like our backyard in MA right now!
