Okay...here's Frankie rocking his new TRIPAWD HARNESS so he can wear it to tne pawty! I did a bit of a practice session with him and, while he still pulls ike crazy, it's not nearly as nard on me AND he's not choking himself!!! Very effective.

As Wyatt's endorsement said, it does turn towards the amp side. I'm still gon a work on the adjustments.

He looks so handsome and proud in it!

Sorry to capture the pee part, but it's a good way to take a look at it.

CASSIE! I've ordered a leash so we can walk Finn and Merry Myrtle together!

I'm so excited! It's getting so close! The puppers are getting their baths and pampering tomorrow so they'll be semi presentable by Friday lol. See everyone there!

OOOOMMM DDDD! CHERYL AND ZACH ARE COMING TOO!! WA HOO!!!

I have to say, the date is really sneaking up on me! As of yet, I don't have any takers for a free trip to Fredericksburg surrounded by dogs, so it looks like I'll be traveling with these two on more own! Should be interesting!

As of right now my 16 yr.old car is in the shop because the battery all of the sudden lost it's charge whike driving. No problem...I have my 22 yr. old car (with a rejected sticker because it needs four tires. I can at least get to work and hope I don't get pulled over. Silly me! When I go to start it yesterday the battery is completely dead. So I've been bumming rides to and from work for the past two days Not fun when you don't live close to anybody!clap

But I'm getting to a point!! Looks like I may be renting a car to go to Fredericksburg . The reason that's good is I can get one with a/c so I won't have to worry about Frankie trying to swueeze out a window! I was apprehensive about driving the "youngerz" car anyway. Prior to the battery thing, it had a habit of cutting off when I slowed down!way-cool

We're gonna be there!!!!! And I'll be the only one bathed!! Merry Myrtle will have a hot oil slobber treatment for her fur. Frankie....nesw a hound with his own special hiund scent that no amount of bathing coukd ever dilite!! Actually, he really doesn't have a hound smell. His howling keeps any stench away.

Gosh! Can hardly believe it's almost here!! Best week end ever!!!

I can't believe it's six days away and our fearless leaders have already begun the trek to get here! 

Sally, don't worry if you can't find anyone, I think there will be enough of us to help you out.

Yea we'll definitely help you out Sally! 

Finn will be probably be gross again by the time we get there, but it can't hurt to bathe him lol. I'll try to get pictures today of his bath, I'm sure he's thrilled... he's getting the hose treatment since its so warm out!

OhhhhCassie!!! Thrse poctures are ADORABLE!!!. Finn actually looks somewhat proud and happy,!!! Domino,,? Not so much...actually a little ticked!

A d thanks for offering to help everybody! Offer gladly accepted! I know Merry Myrtle will be somewhat easier to handle on a leash. I just say the word cookie and she immediately sits down like a good girl and waits for her treat. I say the word "cookie" to Frankie and thinks that means to pull harder on the leash and howl while doing it!

Not sure the Greyhounds we ill ever be the sameq!!

Finn and Domino, you are looking beautiful!!!

With love...and so much excitement!!!!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!

Wow guys.  I'm so envious.  Wish I could come and bring the girls too.  I will look forward to hearing all about it and seeing awesome pics of all the adorable puppers.  

Karma, Adelaide and the crew, and always our angel Brendol

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.
