On Monday and over the weekend, we had some great friends here. Max (Miniature Pinscher) was here while his parents got married. Congratulations! Macie was full of energy every day. She loves everyone and plays hard. Otto (English Setter) and Oliver played part of the day. Then Otto moved on to Lucy. Jaycie (English Springer Spaniel) tried to play with Inky, but he prefers to watch her run around with JJ (Lab mix) and Cooper (Golden Retriever). Cooper loved the pool, and so did JJ. He ran all around after his dip in the pool like he was rocket-propelled. Buster (Lab mix) found a perfect shady spot in the yard and settled in to watch the fun. Jackson and Mason (Border Collie) were tired and ready for a nap in the middle of the floor by 10am. They usually have so much more energy. It must be the warm weather. The nice cool floor really has a way of pulling you in. Daisy, Dora, and Raia tried the pool but were done with it pretty quickly.

The pool's open!
We have water in our pool our in the play yard! Several of us dipped our feet in, while some thought it was just a really big water bowl. Blitz (Beaded Collie mix), Poppy (Bearded Collie) and Koco (Lab) have been spending most of the day together. Poppy splits her time between hanging with her friends and chasing balls. Lucy (German Shepherd) runs around a lot, loves attention from the people and seems to be having a good time. She checks the door periodically for her dad but likes us here. We're glad she came to meet us! Another newbie at the lodge is Phoebe (German Shorthaired Pointer). She likes the yards better than the playroom, maybe it's the great view of the cornfields. Tiki (Golden Retriever) played puppy momma again today, spending a lot of time with Raia (Doberman/Pitbull mix), Daisy (Doberman/Pitbull mix) and Dora (Doberman/Pitbull mix). She also spent time running and wrestling with Molly (Mountain Cur). Molly was really into chasing balls today, too. She was like a little puppy today. Dyson (Jack Russell Terrier) is here for his second day. He is fitting in well. Cooper (Maltese) is being so brave today. We had the door open between the two playrooms, and he walked all the way through the big room to go out on the deck. That was two different slick floors to cross. Way to go Cooper! Oliver (Yorkshire Terrier) went home this morning, but played with us for an hour or so first. He loves it here. He was nervous his first day but is now great friends with so many new dogs. We can't wait to have him back! Chico (Lhasa Poo) liked pretending to be a big dog with Poppy and Blitz today. He was sad that he missed seeing his best friend, Jackson (Border Collie) yesterday. Molly (Beagle) and Inky (English Springer Spaniel) watched the youngins go in the pool and swapped stories about being young and silly. Overall we are having a great day today!
