We were all surprised this morning by a little visit from a raccoon in our outside play yard. No dogs were injured and the raccoon was released. I think he was looking for a girlfriend and picked the wrong place to look. There are some very pretty girls here, but we all prefer dogs. Now our humans are walking the yard every time before they let us out. Mommy says she hopes no skunks try to join us, too.
Blitz (Bearded Collie mix), Poppy (Bearded Collie), and Molly (Mountain Cur) joined us after the raccoon incident and played as if it were any other day. Poppy chased balls most of the time. Tucker (Golden Retriever) enjoyed hanging out with lots of other Goldens today - Cooper, Dodger, Mulligan, and Tiki. It was a blond bonanza. Lucy (Lab) was an honorary member of the golden club today. She loves to play with everyone and adjusts her play level to match whoever she's with. She likes playing with the little puppies and the big dogs. Jaycie (English Springer) was saving up some energy over the weekend to burn off today. She ran, pounced and played tug with Mulligan, Cooper, and anyone else who would join in the fun. Buster (Lab mix) came for the first time today. He was a little uncertain, but seemed to like meeting us. He liked hanging out in the yard, but we weren't out much because of the rain. Daisy (Doberman/Pit mix) was adopted this weekend and is back to start our puppy potty training program today. She's doing a great job! Raia (Doberman/Pit mix) is also doing well. She enjoyed napping with Zac (Doberman/Pit mix) and Dora (Doberman/Pit mix), too. Daisy and Sage (Pug) play really well together. They love to run and wrestle. Chico (Lhasa Poo) just joined us for the afternoon. He says he missed us over the weekend. :)
