This weekend, I was able to head on a quick trip to get some much needed family time. You would think I would have remembered to take pictures of said family while I was out and about. You would be wrong. I came home with 17 pictures. All of dogs. While this is not uncommon for me (in fact, each major trip I take has an entire album of dog pics) I am starting to realize I have a definite problem.
Today, I will only be able to show you pictures of the dogs who live with everyone I saw. Meh, people aren't that cute anyway.
Montel and I hopped into my Jeep and hit the open road. We stopped and spent the night with my good friend NewHeart (aka Cheryl) and her dog, Stella. Stella is about the only dog I did not get a picture of because she and Monty decided they DID NOT LIKE EACH OTHER, so we spent most of our time trying to keep them from brawling. Only after I walked them the next morning did they realize they could be in the same space amicably.
Friday, I drove another 1.5 hours to see Grandma. She lives at a place for old people which is good because she's 93. She spent the entire time telling me she thought my sister was coming and seeming all too disappointed, but that is a story for later.
I took Grandma out for lunch and then we went to my uncle's home where Grandma's dog, Vicki, has lived since Grandma moved. Vicki thinks Grandma is AWESOME and all others come second. Here is the story of how Grandma and Vicki got together.

My favourite thing about seeing them (apart from actually seeing them) is the dog park that exists in their home town. I make them take me there as often as possible when I visit. Sometimes I let them take the dogs too. It is a 3 mile expanse of trees and river and paths that make me salivate with jealousy over our large half-fenced-in field that floods for most of the year.

Porter stands like a person.

You can always tell the best vacations because you need a holiday after you return.
