Well, today is yesterday’s tomorrow, but not the tomorrow I referred to in my last post! Still got some great picnic pics to show you!
Our adoption group has such a great bunch of people and selfless volunteers. Sue organizes the games at the picnic. You might remember last year when Apollo was in contention for the winner “bobbing for wienies” contest. This year it was a spaghetti relay, teams of five:
You have to run up to the container, the dog has to gobble down one strand of spaghetti, then run back and tag off the next team member.
On Priest’s next go-round:
In addition to a greyt bbq, games and auction/raffles, there was a 50/50 draw. You got your dog’s tail-length of tickets for $5. Sabrina has a r-e-a-l-l-y long tail, so of course we used hers for the measurement. And then random people were coming up and getting a Sabrina-length, too:
This fellow’s name is Owen (adopted out as Toby) and he’s a greyhound/borzoi mix. Isn’t he beautiful? He’s quite striking in person and has the most gorgeous light amber eyes. He’s a doll!
Butter was there! She’s another greyhound/sighthound mix. I’m not sure what she’s mixed with, she’s a petite wee girl, but also gorgeous!
Too bad it wasn’t their own blanket. They slowly and systematically crowded the people off the blanket. It was a family of several people and these hounds just moved them on off. Heh.
But doesn’t his new collar combo look stunning?!
A fantastic time was had by all – got some good ideas for donations for the auction next year. There were ~ 150 people and 95-98 hounds!
More pics are on my Flickr set for the picnic.
I didn’t get a lot of knitting done while we were away. I found working on the stranded mitten a little difficult in the car because of the shitty highways – too rough and my eyes were crossing while trying to follow the chart. I did a little on the socks, but not much. And since we got home on Sunday night, I only picked them up once for a round and a half. We were only gone four days, but there’s tons of stuff that needs doing around the house. sigh.
