The Wedding

So the wedding was a hit. Waffle who is very, very picky about her social interactions had the time of her young labradog life -you know it's a good party when you puke and keep on parting. Tammy after all is her ultimate BFF in THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD!!! When Tammy comes over the rest of us cease to exist. It certainly helps that Tammy spoils her shamelessly, what ever Waffle wants Waffle gets. We've already told her that if anything happens to us, we want her to take Waffle, because she certainly will keep Waffle in a style which Waffle thinks is appropriate.

Tammy's wedding was a 1920's theme and her gown and traveling dress were beautiful, she had invited all of her friend and their dogs. Her dog Chibi was the ring dog and the flower girl had her own k-9 escort. (seriously the kid had at least 30 or 40 foot walk to do on her own. She looked like she was about 18 months 'cuz she was walking really well, just not directed. Part way down the isle she lost focus when she saw the family dog- lucky the dog has a good recall, they called the dog ad the kid followed.) There were pup-cakes and cookies for all the k-9 guests and vegan delites for the rest of us. We knew that Chibi would be wearing a tux and so I knew the girls would have to step up their game, so I spent Friday (my day off) running around trying to figure out what the pups could wear. (side note: I spent $3.50 for a yard of this ribbon only to find that Costco has their Christmas ribbon out and on sale. I could have had 50 yards of this ribbon for 7 bucks! But really? Xmas stuff already? its still September)

My normally 'fraidy pants Waffle was surprisingly animated, she really was in her element. Consider it was dark, noisy with lots of strangers/dogs but she ate it up. Literally, I put her and Truff on a down stay while I went to the buffet, but everyone there loves dogs and soon booth girls were freely wandering around talking to people and eating everything in site. Well at least Waffle was, Truffie was pretty good not begging and vacuuming the floor, she just wanted some lovin'. It helped that she had her jacket on so most folks knew not to feed her. Waffle on the other hand was surprisingly charming, happy ears and tails with her pretty bow, everyone loved her. And the puking part...... well it seems Waffle was either a little to well loved (ie stuffed with snacks), excited or hot, we were sitting on the porch when I hear this  'woop, woop, uuuurrrrrrpppp, akkkk' a sound any parent or puppy raiser knows well. Never fear after freshening up a bit she went right back to the party. Enough talk here's what the girls wore.

What the peeps do without me

by Truffie
So one day my Aunty came over and the peeps loaded up the car and off they went WITHOUT ME! how wrong was that. I spent my day sleeping, chewing on Waffle and gardening. Years later they came back and showed me the pictures of what they did without me! (actually after I saw the pics I was glad they didn't take me, too hot, too dusty, and who cares about rocks anyway)

So here is mom at the Pala Gem mine. That large pile of rocks came from the Pala Queen mine, they PAID to be able to sort through those rocks. I could have found them rocks inthe garden for free. Silly people

every person got a a bucket and some screens and lots of sunshine

California Poppies

BFF lugged buckets of rocks to mom who used two different screens to sort the rocks by size and they you wash them (wash rocks?) to see if there are any pretty ones in there.

looking for gems

do you see any? I don't

Just lots of dirt

Silly people.

need your opinion

option 1 - not her fav, comes in different colors

option 2 OTT but it is a wedding

option 2 different angle

opt. 3 on Truffie

not even an option for the Waffler

option 4, like the little black dress a lot of things go with basic black

We have a wedding tomorrow and need views on what to wear. The ring dog will be wearing a tux, so the girls need to step it up a bit. We are thinking about a daisy chain for the girls but not just sure yet. 

Which do you like?

My day at work

What'cha you do today?

Let's all Wiggle Waggle

I copied this picture from their web site, click here to go to their web page

Hey So. Cal bloggers/PIT raisers lets get together (ya ya ya!)

Waffle and Truffle and I will be at the Rose Bowl this Sunday to do the Pasadena Humane Society Wiggle Waggle Walk it is a fun 3k walk (just under 2 miles) with lots of doggy friendly things to do. The Rose Bowl has a nice park, lots of free parking and is just off the 210 Freeway. It would be a blast to see blog-o-sphere friends in the flesh. THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL GDB EVENT, just a chance to get out and enjoy a sunny So.Cal Sunday with friends. A great way to support the PHS/SPCA to boot.

Things to know:

  1. there will be LOTS and LOTS of dogs, all shapes, sizes and temperaments
  2. there will be LOTS and LOTS of PEOPLE, all shapes, sizes and temperament 
  3. It is noisy and busy, with tons of distractions (kids on bikes, skaters, stroller pushers ect...)
so what am I gettin' at? you know your dog, this might not be the event for all dogs. BUT if it is.... put on your walking shoes bring a chair, some lunch and send me a note in the comments if you can make it. Don't forget your camera and let's Wiggle Waggle!

see ya there.
