That Admin Guy may put a moratorium on how many videos we can chow after this!! Lretty sure it may halpen! clownWe all had THE best time! And our dogs did too! Honest to goodness, for Finn, Domino, Rosco, Tanner, Zach, Fannie Mae, Chandler, Daryl, Nixon, Cookie, Pearl Jax, frankie,Merry Myrtle and Wyatt Ray to get al k ng soooooo well just boggles my mi d! 25 dogs in our little group getting along! And then add another 20 to 30 greyhounds snd friends..WOW! I think our energy of love that we have for each other ks absorbed by them and they carry that good energy with them as they interact.

It was a spectacular week-end with beautiful weather and an outstanding job done by Rene, Jim, Tripawds, Kim and the Greyhounds Rock group. The moments shared were too brief but the friendships and loving memories will last a lifetimesuperstar

These are somewhat in order. As you will be able to tell from the laughter, this was an absolute blast! They start out at the Wine place...then Deb's bacation" home she re ted and was gracious enough to invite us over to ner huge fenced ywar with shade trees...then to Kim's place with guest speakers, vendors, food, prizes, etc. It was, in my opinion, a fairytale vacation!

I just couldn't pick what NOT to show! I mean, how could you leave out one moment of fun a d laughter?? And besides, Michelle said she wanted to see 'em all!!clap

The first two are right when I got there with Frankie and Merry Myrtle (Thank yo j Esther and Don and Jax for leading the way)! BFF Eric came ro the car to help with the dogs. Just LISTEN to the JOY, the LAUGHTER, the FUN!!

Thanks for sharing all these with us.....the pics and videos will stay within our hearts always as a constant reminder of great times shared with great friends.....clapway-coollaughingsmileyclap and hearts and hugs......

Oh lordy good thing these videos are hosted on YouTube and not on our server! LOVE EM!!!!

Had no idea Sally was taking so many videos, she is sneaky! Careful when Sally and her tavlet are at a pawty, you never know what's being recorded!

Way fun Sally, thanks for sharing.

Sally,

You were a bit confused on my post in my iPad problem forum, regarding " editing ingested porpoises"...... Look above on your very first post here, and read Administrators Notice at the bottom.........still giggling......!!!!! Glad Admin guy and Rene helped you to get your awesome videos onto a playlist.....it will be fun to watch them all again!

Much Love, 

Bonnie, AP, and girlslaughing

Oh Bonnie, we sure knkw how to keep this pawty going!!winker

Yeah, I didn't see the ingested porpoises thing from the Admin Guy st first. Clearly I need to get him a tavet as he has trouble with typos on a computer!

And our BFF Admin Guy emailed me all of the original links to each video WITH my original "introduction explanation", naming dogs and their people, pointng out certain things to look for in each video, etc. Plus the playlist thing isn't as big as each individual one I posted.

Point being....if anyone wants to see the videos with the explanation and larger, I've got em! (Looks like you and Rene are the only ones from the pawty who as viewed them. Well, poor Jim too!) I just can't post them all at once without all those porpoises being ingested! Computer people sure do talk funny!

Honest to goodness, I'm still walking around with the biggest grin on my face!! It was THE best time! A d the way all our dogs interacted so beautifully just speaks volumes on so many levels!! And for me, just being in their presence and the presence of souls like you, and feeling the presence of our transitioned dog souls.....yeah, it was magical!!!

When you can, post another pic of zpZuzu with Pearl...would love to see how she's grown! Such an incredible story behind her "adoption"...so beautiful! And I love the approach you and John are taking of just letting her be pure dog!!! What a fun life!!

Mich love to all!!

P$ Alison...stone cold sober the whole time! But very, very high on love and life at the pawty!! 🙂

Sally, thanks so much for all the videos even if you broke the websitelittle-devil. I had a big grin on my face the whole time I was watching them and felt like I was right there with you guys. I think we need to have a pawty right in the middle of the country so everypawdy can come! That would be so awesome!!

Middle of the country sounds great...Michelle I nominate you to be the official Mid-Country TriPawd Party planner big-grin.

Sally, Queen of All Things Video! clapLove these! So many special memories! Thanks for sharing them. I did have to mute the sound because our little pack went crazy hearing the dogs and thinking people were in our house! lol  Especially Fannie Mae. I'll have to watch with the sound up sometime when they're outside.

And thanks to Bonnie and you for the thread and helping me understand that video issues weren't just me...finally got them to play through on the playlist in the link (the one in your post kept getting hung up for some reason). Big props to Admin Guy...playlists rock! And Sally rocks! superstar
