Hi Penny!  I don't know what your budget would be, but here's a quick google search for pet friendly hotels in Mill Valley.  You can follow the link below, it looks like the Holiday Inn Express is pretty close to the park.  And just to let you know, we now have everyone sign a waiver so we won't be sued for BBL's monkey business!  It's either that, or you have to wear a full-body biohazard suit!!  laughing  Hope you can make it out to the pawty!!

Well that went south quick! lol

Today I got to wake up to a barking tripawd at about 3 am. Since I've got ALOT of projects going on lately I have a lot of expensive tools on the utility area and suspecting maybe a burglar, grabbed my gun and phone to check it out (I don't live in a great area) and much to my relief no burglar. But I did however have a green chinned pitbull with a can of spray paint she decided to turn into a chew toy that was just hissing away leaking green paint EVERYWHERE!

I love this dog, but some of the stuff she gets into makes me wonder why I got myself into this. I couldn't be mad at this one though. I'll bet her heart skipped a beat when she punctured that can and that's it's own punishment. I'll post her humiliating picture later!

And here I thought dealing with my Lucian and his antics were bad!!  Iris definitely takes the prize with this one!!!!  The things these fur kids find to get themselves into just boggles the mind.  What in the world is so enticing about a can of green spray paint...way-confused.  To bad we can't hear their thought processes...I'm sure it would be non-stop laughing!!!

Can't wait to see pics of a green faced Iris...aw-shucks

The rare and elusive green-chinned painted pittie... looking forward to seeing a picture of one.  And just to show that his mojo is still working, Mr. bin Laden had another love session with our friend Jean, one of his many True Loves and the mom of his best friend ever, Douille (pronounced "Dewey").  This photo looks like the cover of one of those cheap romance novels.

Wow I'm with Sally, Bernie is a lot sexier than any of my boyfriends. Maybe you can rent him out (gigolo/dogolo). Does she have peanut butter on her neck?

Well I thought I got a good picture of her this am with paint on her chin, but apparently she received a towel bath while I was away today.

After a long day of looking at hens, my neighbor cleaned her up and this is what I came home to.

OH and I have to say. That is the first time my girlfriend saw me bring out my gun, well that one. She wasn't exactly thrilled about it, and I understand but Iris doesn't cry wolf, I knew at 3am this was more than a toy she couldn't retrieve. We had a good joke about it later though, I said "If I was a dog at the SPCA, my headline would probably say "doesn't play well with others" lol...

I love the look on Iris's face in the first pic..."Busted"!!! oh-my

Perhaps she thought she'd give you some nice green graffiti on your wall and door...you know something to spruce the place up!!

And how nice of your neighbor to clean up Iris...hopefully the cleaning process wasn't too painful for sweet Iris. 

And the last picture...I just want to reach through the screen and give Iris a smooch on the nose!!  She's just precious!!

Cracking me up over here! Iris may not jave a green chin, but the pics and the green paint on the walls and the floor and the look on her face say it all! I think she looks a little traumatized just being near that can of paint!

Chickens, be mighty glad there is some "chicken wire" between you and Iris! If she could get to you, she'd be saying, "Winner! Winner! Chicken dinner!"

Heck yeah...3 am...Iris barking her alarm call...definition time to pull out the gun!! That is not the time of night to be "playing well with others"!

Iris is a BEAUTIFUL dog! Love these pictures!!

Hugs to all!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!

Penny! LOL! I'm thinking that Dirty Boy Bernie could be your very own Shades of Grey kind of guy!! Fooling around with his best friend's mom...no morality whatsoever!

She can be a handful that's for sure! The towel bath wasn't too bad, we are rebuilding some fence and I'm pouring a driveway for my other neighbor, so my neighbor took her in for the day, and I guess Dawn handsoap is the trick for paint etc on fur. In comparison to me, my neighbor may as well be the dog whisperer, Iris would've just thought it was tug o war time had I brought out a soapy rag.

My girlfriend and I had a talk about the gun coming out. She moved in a few weeks ago, and she knew before she moved in that I'm a veteran and all but I don't think she fully grasped the concept that veterans are EXCELLENT defenders of the home!

I'm balancing my needs of having a girlfriend and a .45 at the moment. She really isn't having it. Luckily I have Iris who wants a brindle coated tactical vest.
