Play Date

Above, six Goldens for a play date. From the left, Hogie, Molly, Emma, Piper, then Bella and Me, Mogley.

The last several days have been exciting. Not only are we busy looking for a new home for Hogie, our current foster friend, but we also have house guests. Our three cousins are spending a few days with us while their chauffeurs take a trip to San Francisco. They would not take us, they explained that we could not stick our heads out of the window on the trip so it would be boring. I think it would be fun to chase all of those sea gulls.

When our three cousins first arrived, Hogie was a little uncertain about all the madness going on around him, then he joined in the fun. This morning we all had to line up for our photo. Tomorrow we have a Golden Retriever party to attend. I hope all of us get to go, but the chauffeur says it will be a lot of work to take all of us at once. We will see what happens. Picnics are so much fun, lots of food on flimsy paper plates, lots of old friends we have not seen for a long time, and lots of people to give us attention. He says on long car rides, I get grumpy in the back and I started a fight on the last ride. I could not help it, someone stepped on me. Now they are being more careful about how many Golden sardines they put in an SUV.

No one has stepped forward to adopt Hogie yet, but we know that good things take time. he is doing fine and wants his fans to know that he is ready for a special Forever Home.

  1. We beagles understand about the more the merrier! I hope that Hogie gets a home real soon.

    love & wags,

  2. Speaking as a rescue dog, relinquished most reluctantly, I hope Hogie will take his time and pick his furever family carefully.

    After all, his last supposed family took him to a shelter: (

    What a handsome guy and what a smile: )) Hogie the hunk!!


  3. We love all the pics Mogley. We hope you get to go to the picnic. Sounds like fun and seems like you might get some extra pets and treats from the humans :)

    Wags and woofs,
    Benson and Gibson

  4. Oh wow! I wish I'd get a play date too!

    And I'm sure Hogie will find a new home soon!

  5. Oh my..How cute is that picture! All of them together look simply adorable. Neat that you were able to manage to get them to all pose in roughly the same direction.
