THE BIG DAY!!!
THANK YOU to those who were able to attend our third (of many) reunions. Dean and I once again feel so lucky to have the best puppy homes we could ever ask for. It was so nice to see some new faces this year in addition to the same faces from last year, plus Player grandkids. I hope we continue to see MORE faces each year to come!!!!
The team relay was soooo fun......our fastest recall was Hattie (Player/Lyric), our Agility winner was Tess (Tex/Remdy), our biggest dock jump was Shazam (Player/Jenga!), and our fastest speed retrieve was Fresh (Player/Siri) for the second year in a row.
The Secret Elephant game was hysterical and lots of neat gifts were brought (and stolen). Soooo many laughs and I can't wait to put a twist on the game for next year.
The food was delicious at both lunch and dinner!!! ? The doggie cake was a hit for Shuffle's first birthday as was the UNICORN human cake brought by Tracy.
For those who couldn't make it, we sure missed you and hope to see you NEXT YEAR. We will start planning for that soon. Again, thank you all for making this reunion lots of fun and making lots of memories with us and a big thanks to my mom, Kelli, Cindy for helping behind the scenes with setup, cleaning, mowing, boarding dogs, etc and to Maggie for dealing with our crazy family for pictures for another year.
