A Week at the Grandparents'

So, while I was running around like a lunatic getting ready for the Kamloops SPCA's Paws for a Cause Walk for the Animals, Dannan and I were also house sitting for my parents. My mom and dad positively dote on Dannan. Often, if I drop by to visit them, the first thing they say to me is, "Where's Dannan? Didn't you bring Dannan?" Good thing I know they love me best, right? LOL.

This summer, my parents re-fenced their backyard. For Dannan. Did I ever mention that he is a Very Spoiled Dog???

These pictures are actually from the first day we visited after the fence was up, the first day he was in their yard without a long line or leash. The pics are a few months old at this point. There are no pictures from this last week, and Dannan says that we all know who is to blame for that!

Check out the tongue action!

Gotta scratch when you got an itch, right?

Surveying his new kingdom...

I just thought this shot was funny.

He's heard something... At one point, he looked at me with an expression (which I didn't catch, dammit!) that said, Hey, Girl, did you know there's different sounds here?

He's a pretty happy boy. It doesn't take much, which is a lesson I'm constantly striving to take to heart from him!

Another spot he was trying out...

Dog in motion.... Please don't look at the peeling paint on the garage!

We had a great week over at my parents' house, but it's also good to be home. Dannan has his Pins, his Cat TV, and his own yard (which he had to check immediately, of course). And the birds here are different than at Mom and Dad's - lots more here to chase, although he did a great job with the crows over there!

And just a last note... We raised over $31,000 for our local branch of the BCSPCA this past weekend! It was an awesome day!

Pee Ess We are going to slowly catch up on our comments and blogs over the next few days, and tomorrow, we will unveil the award Mango gave us (a really long time ago!)!

Shelter dogs -- the original "designer dogs"! Make the SPCA your first adoption option!

Love the photo's of you enjoying the yard Dannan, you are indeed a pampered pooch! It is nice to get home after you have been away though isn't it? Nothing beats Home Sweet Home,

Well of course they put a fence up. He is their granddog after all. Nice to have a big yard for zoomies.
