It seems that whenever there are functions with Derek’s family, there are always just as many kids as there are adults. It’s hectic and loud, but it’s wonderful. Whenever there are functions with my family, however, the dogs seem to take over the role that kids seem to fill. It’s just as hectic and loud, and it’s just as wonderful.
We went up north earlier this month to celebrate my grandmother’s 88th birthday. And just as always, had a very relaxing trip.
We got there and Derek went fishing with my cousins and their spouses, while I sucked it up and put my toes in the freezing lake to give the dog’s their bath. Because the last bath they’d received was the last time we were there, and that was two years ago.
They met up with all their “cousin” dogs and played the afternoon away on the beach. Here’s the beginning of the pack.
My sister-in-law showed up and brought her husky. Those three absolutely love each other. And notice how Kirra just sits and watches over her men?
And because eight dogs just wasn’t enough, she had to go and adopt this little creature.
And Derek and I almost left with another. What a trip that would have been. I’ve puppy-sat that little girl only a few times and boy, am I glad we didn’t get another puppy.
As far as the people go. Remember, those human beings? Well, we didn’t actually do a whole lot of anything. There was plenty of this going on.
Up North. I miss you already. And I almost kissed the beach before we left, knowing there would be a peaceful ride home.
They didn’t make a sound the entire six hours. Those are some worn out puppies.
