Let me introduce you to Duncan and Cooper, my parent's dogs. Duncan is a five year old Labradoodle and might possibly have been oxygen deprived at birth. Cooper is a three year old Boston Terrier with an attitude. His hobbies include winning lots of blue ribbons at agility competitions and growling at people.
We thought that the cabin would be a ton of fun in the summertime too! There was a boat dock and swimming deck attached to the house (well about a gazillion stairs down from the house).
My Dad was just in heaven. You see, he really loves Boston Terriers, or as he calls them, BT's. I got Macey and at one point my Dad called me and asked if I would ever consider giving Macey to them. When I said NO, they got their own BT a week later. That's Cooper!
My Mom's Birthday fell on Thanksgiving this year! We had Pecan Pie instead of a traditional birthday cake, we brought all the stuff to bake her a cake but after seeing 6 pies in the fridge we vetoed that idea. Maybe next year you'll get a cake Mom!
It was so nice to have time to see both of our families without making a whirlwind trip of it. We played several rounds of Catchphrase, drank some wine, watched some football, and pigged out!
My Dad was begging for a picture of all the "BT's" and this is the best I could come up with for him. My Mom-in-law took a bunch so hopefully there's one I can frame for my Dad. He's a little strange, what can I say?
My sweet little boy did great on the trip, took him a day or two to master all the stairs and he even scaled the mountain a time or two. He loved running around with all the big dogs and both my pups were pooped when we got home. Macey loved getting to see all the Grand-paw-rents (I crack myself up) and got lots of cookies.
In other news:
The forecast is calling for it to snow tonight. ACK! I have enough food to last a few days and am planning on staying inside as much as possible. I have no clue how to drive in the snow!! I bought the dogs some jackets because they start shivering like crazy when we go outside...this should be interesting!!!
