Yay! It was greyhound visiting day again yesterday.
Our friends from La Ronge had to come to town yesterday and we made arrangements for a greyhound play date. This is as active as it gets with greyhounds.
Our friends dropped the girls off and had a couple of things to do. I think Ruby and Elsa were worried that they were being left for a while, but once Auntie Terri started handing out the cookies, it was all good.
I love these hounds! Ruby reminds me so much of Sarah Foster.
Beautiful Elsa is almost the same age as Apollo and they share some similar life history – both were double bounce backs before they found their forever homes.
Ava got a little stroppy with Ruby’s joy de vivre from time to time, but was fine with Ruby’s mom ear scritching and belly/brisket rubbing for HOURS!
(Don’t his legs look 2 miles long there?!)
We had a great evening and fabulous supper – sooo full! Steak, etc. topped off with molten lava cakes with ice cream and fresh raspberries. (I use this recipe here, but instead of the semisweet chocolate squares, I use the Baker’s Gold 70% squares (smaller gold box, not the big red Baker’s box). Sooooo delicious!
This week has been particularly bad at work – very hectic, looming deadlines and much stress and pressure. I’m so glad I have my derby girls to knock around/knock me around to burn off some of the stress and aggression.
We’re actually having a bake sale on Saturday, so any PA readers, come on down to the 1200 block of Central Ave and find our booth! Good eats!
