Oh I am so sorry that Brandon does not feel good.  We do have to plan another one very soon.  I got my shirt from cricket today, so I am going to have it on even if I am not there in person I will be in spirit.

Melissa it there anything we can do for you and Brandon?

Well, that sucks that Brandon isn't feeling well.  Hopefully the new antibiotics work.  I know what you mean about the medical profession, I had a doctor tell me (granted he ran some tests and they came back neg.), that some people just hurt, and apparently I'm one of those people!  Well, I plan on going.  I might not be moving the greatest!!  Had a knot next to my shoulder blade, went to work tonight, turned my head and that was it!!  Neck and shoulder area not happy with me!!  But me and my boxer (don't have a BP anymore) will be at the fireworks place at 7.  That's off the Wilcox exit right?
God placed me on this earth to accomplish certain tasks...I'm so far behind I'll never die!!

Yea I decided i couldnt go either.  Baxter has lost so much weight from being sick and Bell is in standing heat.  I would only have taken Winston but i am worried about leaving baxter for too long.  I will just have to travel down to see everyone from georgia.  i move on the fifth :'(

Hi Amber,

 I am so glad that little Baxter is doing better. We may try to make it over to the Malbis Pet Smart on the 4th.  Maybe if you need a break boxing you can come over.

Somebody else will have to bring the camera...Ds lost mine today at the dog park.   >:(  >:(  >:( I can't believe it.  I told him to go get the towels and put the camera in the car and he totally spaced on me.  Now he doesn't remember ever having it.  So I guess someone at the dog park has a mediocre Kodak now.   >:( 

That aside, we had a blast!!!!  Our pups were, of course, the best behaved there and had the best recall/control.  Bella did her diva queen routine at first but settled right down.   We went in the "big" park first and got everyone aquainted and then went down to the beach.  Even Bell (the other one  8) ) swam.  Bava and Sophie ruled the water of course.  Feste and my Bella did their darndest to drown a boxer that was there.  Chance was just happy everyone was there to play with him.  Daphne was just happy to play. 

We left there and went downtown to the bakery.  They have some really neat stuff!  They even carry the really cool backpacks!  The dogs gave their resounding approval of the gourmet treats too.  Then we went down to a sidewalk cafe and had lunch.  They really catered to our pups...They brought out pitchers of water and styrofoam bowls and everything.  They were very happy to have us there.  The pups gave a very good accounting of themselves to all of the other patrons too.  By the time we all left and came home, everyone was exhausted!

I unloaded kids and Bella and loaded up Mo and Fos and took them to the duck pond in Fairhope.  I have discovered that Mo isn't all that impressed with people running up to him to pet him.  I guess with his deafness, he doesn't like all that motion around his head.  Both of them were perfect gentlemen though.  Baloo got to go for a walk when we all got home.  I'm a very tired little girl now...

WOW!   What a great day!  As Cricket posted, all the kids were great and had an absolute blast!  We met some interesting folks while we were out there and maybe got a few new members.  It was a wonderful way for all of us to give our pups a  chance to socialize and play togather (and play they did!) as well as for the humans to hang out and share our love and enjoyment of our furry friends.  I'm definitely looking forward to the next time. 
A well-deserved shout-out to Tre Fratelli Italian restaurant and to Central Bark Bakery in Pensacola for their incredible hospitality (and great eats!) - if you are ever in Pensacola give them a try and let them know we appreciate it!

Sorry, that stinks about losing your camera :(

I felt like poop on a cracker, and still had a great great time yesterday.  We have some slower moving pups here today, and just downright lethargic last night, I know they had a blast.  Bava was very taken with Daphne the Boxer, he didn't want to leave her side, but then she would kinda follow him when he went off sometimes, so I think those two became really good buds.  Sophie was a wild child as usual, I was just really suprised at how much darned energy she has, I guess it is a landseer thing, she's our turbo newf :)  When Bella & Feste weren't working on that boxer, she and Feste were working on him, she took more than she gave, he kept submerging her, but I think she liked it? Who knows, she's a strange kid.  I think they were just giving him heck because he POOPED IN THE WATER though.. eeeew.

Cricket did a great job of summing up our day.  It was funny when our group decided to go over to the water park, the whole dog park emptied out with us and followed us over there.   
All the dogs got washed up at the wash station on the beach, and we headed with our clean dogs to the central bark bakery, where we actually met a Great Dane that belonged to the owner of the bakery who was taller than Feste, never thought I would see that.  It's a nice place that I want to go back to soon, they sell higher end great such as Katie's bumpers, and ruff wear, really really good stuff.  Oh and the bakery goods, I'm pretty sure I'll probably try some of those myself, they smell really good.

Tres Fratelli was very very nice to accomodate us and our pups , our waitress was a very nice lady we had actually seen at the park before who has an Argentinean Mastiff.
They brought out several pitchers of cold water for the pups and COLD BEER! (YAY!) for us  :) and the food was very good.  Oh and thank you very much Cricket! for doing the Shirts, and the stylin' bibs look awesome!

Sophie in her stylin' Bib.. Isn't she cute?
