It's a Wonderful Life...

Sorry if I send posts to anyone who already receives them automatically. The subscription is anonymous, so I can't tell who subscribes and who doesn't.

We've had a busy few weeks. I love these collages because I can fit lots of pics in :)

For Labor Day we went to Lake of the Ozarks. The best part was spending time with Will, who is 5 months old now. He is such a happy baby.

Love this pic of Larry and Will...

Last Friday, my friend Nicole held a Trivia Night Fundraiser for her 9-month-old foster puppy, Maddy, who needs life saving heart surgery. She's the black and white pup. The other one is Gabby, who, because of her overtly affectionate tendencies, "worked" the kissing booth.  The night was a success and the money was raised.

By the way, this was Gabby before, when she was found as a stray with severe mange only about six months ago. She is the sweetest, friendliest, wiggly-est butt dog you've ever met! How adorable is she in her pink tutu and purple headband?

Hard to believe it's the same dog...

On Saturday morning, Larry and I drove to Missouri State to meet Eric, who was there on his official visit. He played basketball for about an hour with the players, which we got to watch. He had a great visit and really liked the school. This Thursday or Friday he'll visit Florida Gulf Coast University and then decide in the next week or two where he'll go next year.
That's him in the picture on the left in the grey sweaty shirt. He played seven games in a row.

On the way to the school Larry and I called Big Cedar Lodge to see if they had a room for the night. We figured since it's only 50 minutes away from the school - and it was our anniversary the following day (6 years) - why not make a mini-vacation out of it. We're so glad we did! It was beautiful. The best part was that when it was time to pack up and leave we didn't have anything to pack except the T-shirts and toothbrushes we bought in the gift shop :)
At night we went to the Buzzard Bar to watch the "Singing Cowboy." His real name is Clay Self and he was the funniest comedian and most talented musician we've ever seen. We laughed so hard. His 14-year-old son Levi (see picture bottom left) was incredible on the fiddle and banjo. I would have gone back the next night to see them again.
If you ever get a chance to go here, do. We're trying to figure out how to do a family trip here next year. Anyone in?

 I brought my former enrichment dog, Kiddo, who is still at the shelter :( boooo, to our house to swim one day. She loves the water and had the best time. My dogs went to doggie daycare so they wouldn't cause a noisy raucous, barking at each other through the glass door. Stella hates daycare, by the way. The staff told me she barked the entire time. Three hours won't kill her, though. Poor Kiddo lives at the shelter day in and day out. 

Love you, sweet girl!!

My new enrichment dog as of yesterday is Phycox. 

He's been at the shelter for a few years. 

He has issues. 

He likes to bite people. 

Especially men. 

I have to keep him far away from anyone he doesn't know because he becomes protective of his handler. 

Other than that he's very sweet! Haha!
