More Dogtoberfest!

On the way to the park... Amanda and I sat in the backseat with Zoe and Chloe.

Once we were there we ran into our neighbor and his two pups, Charlie (the bichon on the right) and Archie (the cocker spaniel on the left). They had been there awhile and it was about a million degrees out so they were a little hot and ready to go home!

Billie Jean and her un-lover Michael Jackson were at Dogtoberfest this year!

And a few more pups in costumes for your enjoyment!

We didn't stay nearly as long this year because it was just too hot... but it was fun anyway and I'm sure we'll be there again next year!! : )

Sitting in the office...

with nothing to do. We are having tile put in the living room and have to keep the animals away from the area. So the kitties are in the bedroom and I'm sitting in the office with the three pups. I've read some, played on Facebook and Twitter, and ate a jillion pancakes. Now I'm posting photos from my trip to Kansas City back in July. I have a ton of shots from my sister's amazing garden but those will come in a later post. For now...

This is my sister. Behind her camera. Taking photos with me in her garden. She's a Nikon girl and I'm a Canon girl... lol! Notice the fabu Trendy Strap she's wearing too. I'm such a nice sister. I won it last year and gave it to her so she could have a fun camera strap too!

And this is my sister and her husband and me... at IHOP for breakfast! : )

And last but never, ever least in my world...
My nephew Qwerty and my niece Macintosha!


Mac on the left and Q on the right:

These two are crazy at night (just like my two) so they aren't allowed in Joni and Justin's bedroom. They were allowed in mine! : )

And I leave you with a teaser for the upcoming garden photos...

Shiver Me Timbers! It's the Dread Pirate Professor!

More Dogtoberfest 2009 photos to come! We didn't stay nearly as long this year as last year because it was a jillion degrees out and the pups were melting... not to mention us humans too. But I still managed to get a few fun photos of the doggies! Stay tuned!

MacFarland's Sneak Peek

MacFarland, who gave me permission to call him Mac, is a 3 (almost four!) year old West Highland Terrier who loves lizards, cheese, and long walks on the golf course at Grandpa's house. He already has a girlfriend (of course - he's adorable!) so don't think this is a personal ad... even though it might sound like one. Mac also has a nemesis... or two. What?!?! How could a face THAT cute have a nemesis??

I know I said earlier that Mac loves lizards. I guess I should have clarified. Mac loves to chase lizards! Seriously. Loves it. In fact, we had to leave the area with lots of bushes because it's hard to get photos of a pup with their face down in the ground. But they made for a cute lil collage:

So we went to Mac's Uncles' house. Mac was okay with that. He loves car rides! In fact, he gets to go to work with his mom every day!

Even at their house, there were lizards though! But not so many bushes. : )

Okay... I'll move on from the lizards...

So I know I said Mac has a nemesis or two. The other one, Zeke, can definitely stand up for herself. Therefore Mac doesn't chase her. Or at least he didn't while I was looking! Zeke gives an infamous "evil eye"! But as you can see by the photo on the right, she's also a fabulous model!

What? You are curious as to what amazing beauty could capture the heart of the valiant and brave MacFarland?
This one:

Now we're off to hunt lizards! Have a wooftastic weekend!
