...Yes, there was a fair bit of cackling going on as we all had a pretty good sense of humour and the dogs provided plenty entertainment too. One of the best bits from this spectator's point of view, though, was watching all the antics of the hyoomans getting their pupsters to pose...

BOB - "This way doods, look at mum not me!"
CAROL - "Murphy, you are the best poser!"
BETH - "Thanks Dory, now work it this way..."
DIANA - "This could take a while..."

Murphy to Stanley - "Brother, dad's got the goodies!"
Dory to Oreo - "Hey, d'ya reckon we'll score some of those?"
Oreo to Dory - "...you better hope so!!!"

Casey to Frankie - "Move your tail mate, I'm outta of this nonsense!"
Frankie - "Trust me, pawsistance is futile."
Stella Rose - "where's the a/c???"
Zoe and Whitney - "We don't recall seeing any contracts for this!"
Stanley and Dory - "Hold fast chums, there's usually good treat-ments for stuff like this!"
Oreo - "Hailey, did I just see Zaphod make a dash for the bush?"
Hailey - "Yup. Best not go in that direction for a while... it's likely bad news on the sniffer..."


  1. lol.....we sure did get a good chuckle from this...yes, I was so hot, mom was super worried about me, until we got back to the hotel and then as soon as I laid on the big bed wif momma and felt the air conditioning and smelled the chicken next door I was fine. Thank you for holding me on your lap. Stella Rose
