Warming the House

On Saturday we had a housewarming party. The house already seemed pretty warm to me but that's what people kept calling the party. The "housewarming party" ended turning into a big ol' DOG party instead! And it was GREAT!!!

At one point we think there were seven dogs enjoying my big backyard. My Mom was so busy playing hostess though that she forgot to get the camera out until it was much later. You know what the best part about all of the dogs was? They were ALL rescues! Even me and my cousin Jack are rescues, even though not through a "traditional" rescue source. We were just rescued from a bad home (in my case) and a home that couldn't keep him (in Jack's case).

More dogs than people! And a whole lot of sniffin' going on!

Guess who? Aunt Becky the Treat Whisperer! (Here is Rojo, Cracker Jack, Lucy and little ol' me. Walter, Smuckers and my cousin Jack had already left so they missed the treats!)

Of course we had to watch my favorite UFC. Cracker Jack got a front row seat. Look how big he is! Mom says he's a "gentle giant" though.


Mom thought the funniest part of the night was my new best friend Kyle. Kyle liked to make fun of me before that night. He said I don't even look real! Can you believe that? Well I sure turned that around!

I just made myself comfortable.

Kyle's tough-guy act didn't stand a chance against my powers of charm!

Look how jealous Rojo and Lucy are!

Yep, another cynic converted.

Once I had Kyle in my pocket I had to be a proper host and spend time with other guests, so I moved on to Bill's lap.

It was a REALLY long day and night of playing, and all of us dogs were tuckered out! While everyone else watched the fights, we snoozed.

Rojo made herself comfortable on my best friend's lap.

Then she moved to the floor to nap with her brother Cracker Jack.

Lucy AND her Mom Melinda were tired! Melinda just rescued Lucy from The Humane Society about a month ago. I'm thinking of dating Lucy but I am not sure I'm old enough to tie myself down just yet. But boy did she love me.

And me on Mom's lap. I hope they could hear the fights over my snoring.

Mom and Me!

I wasn't sure if we were going to get this post in before Thanksgiving because as you know my Mom can be pretty lazy, but I told her she owed me after that torture fest she put me through last night. So once again, Happy Thanksgiving to you all! We'll see you after the feasting! I will get a feast, won't I? Mom?
