The count down begins again

Above, Stella listens as Bella gives her some tips on how to climb a tree.

It is only four more days till Sunday.   Sunday!    Our annual Golden Retriever Rescue Reunion at the Boulder Reservoir takes place on Sunday.  If you will recall, we had to postpone our picnic because of the fire that broke out above Boulder.   The fire is out, the fire crews have gone home.   Too many homes were lost, too much land was burned.

This time, we are on schedule for the picnic on Sunday.   The weather forecast is for warm weather.  At 11:00 my canine friends will begin arriving to play fetch in the lake, run on the shore and play with all the people.   We get to go early to help set up, last year Bella and I were tired by the time everyone else arrived.    Our cousins don't get to go, they had another meeting scheduled.   We may have to take them for a swim day over to the lake later in the week.

We are excited.    Someone is coming to meet Stella, they want to adopt a Golden Angel.   We are anxious to see how Nala responds to the excitement of hundreds of dogs.   Nala tends to get irritable when young dogs bump into her or trip over her when she naps.   But she may meet someone that wants to take her home, forever. 

Meanwhile, as you can see above, Stella is earning her PhD in squirrel chasing.  She will climb that tree in a few more days.  She would rather chase the squirrels than come in to get her treat.   When Dinner is called, she continues chasing until the very last minute, then she runs in to eat, then back out to see where the squirrel went.  

Life is good for Nala, Stella, Bella and Mogley.

  2. What a wonderful life Mogley you and Bella have. Stella seams to be a very good student with the squirrel chasing, besides being very pretty. Have fun at your picnic, but please do take care of Nala. Lady, our senior sister, tends to get run over when we younger ones get kind of out of hand. Well, she doesn't like that either.

  3. Hope you have great weather and a wonderful time and we hope that Stella will work her Golden charm to show her prospective adopters what a wonderful family member she would make.

  6. Mogley,
    Thanks for stoppin' by today!
    Since we can't take in fosters, I was so happy to be able to do a little something to help dogs less lucky than I.
