You silly little dreamer

Our amazing friends, Annie and Dana were visiting last week from Galveston, Texas. Dana, an amazing wood artist and painter, is involved in the rebuilding of homes in hurricane-ravaged Galveston while Annie has the hardest job in the world, a elementary school teacher and mother to 4 year old, Jack. To celebrate their visit, Annie's mother invited us to a Texas barbeque-California style. In addition to family and friends, there were six dogs at the party ( I left mine safely at home). The dogs calmly wandered through the crowd, using their wonderful brown eyes to ask for "just a little piece of barbeque". Leo and I spend a lot of time and effort teaching our dogs not to beg, so when the "party" dogs did not accept "no" for an answer and pushed our plates with their noses, we exchanged a knowing (if not smug) look.

It was probably the same look, our three dogs shared as they were eating a blueberry-apple pie I forgot to take to the party.

For all of you that dream that your dog is perfect, Jacqueline and the good folks at Swanky Pet are sponsoring a Sweet Dog GIVEAWAY!

One lucky winner will win a beautiful collar made with your choice of prints from Swanky Pet. The "Wine Corks" collar is pictured above. The collars are constructed with four layers of fabric and are lined with lightweight nylon webbing for structure and durability. All hardware is top quality: contoured zinc die cast side release buckles, durable slip lock buckles, cast D-rings and heavy nickel plate swivel snap hooks.

I am especially proud to support Swankypet.net and their recent program to fund care packages for the US Troops with 50% if the proceeds of their Patriotic Collection. Swanky Pet is also offering customers the opportunity to nominate a service person or unit to receive a care package.
