This year brought the unfortunate turn of events where my camera suffered an untimely demise. It has proved difficult for me to coordinate grabbing the pictures off my wife's camera and getting anything onto the blog while the events are still fresh in my mind. So this is going to be a great big catch-up post with few words and lots of pics.
The snake Kassa and Ricky cornered at the grey play field and would not leave alone:
As a result it we had to confine them to our area. I have no idea what kind of snake it was but I preferred not to experiment with the dogs.
Luckily the next time the group gathered the snake had moved on.
Our mini vacation to the lake, where I grabbed a few scenic shots. Kassa and Ricky stayed with a greyplay family. I realized later that we missed Kassa's birthday. The great thing about dogs is.. they don't seem to mind when you miss these things.
The GPAN summer Picnic
Our friend Lou's dog (Oath) ran for president.
She got Kassa's vote and of course won the day.
There was also a hot dog eating contest.
