Weekend in review…

I was not home this past weekend… I was out partying like a rockstar being a totally responsible adult in Atlantic City.  Hubby was doing the same in South Beach…didn’t I mention we have a lot of weddings and wedding related affairs coming up?  I wasn’t kidding.

So, lucky us that I was able to bribe a friend I’ve met through volunteering at BARCS to camp out at our place.  Well, lucky Chocko I should say.  Usually, we do a lot of dog swapping around here.  Between Chloe, Tyson, and now Molly (see below) thrown into the mix, there is  a lot of swap-a-bull dogs to go around.

Molly- adopted by G&A in June (previously know as Honey from BARCS)

But, since everyone seemed to be traveling, there was a lot of scrambling and ‘what to do with the dogs?‘  I’m not comfortable boarding Chocko yet, and I don’t know if I’ll ever be.  Knox was a doggie day care supastar but I’m not sure that’s Chocko’s groove (I’d say he’s dog selective…I think…which would count him out for daycare).  Besides, it’s been just under 2 months and I wanted him home.  Stability.  He’s still pretty anxious so a new environment wasn’t what I was going for.

But he got a whole lot more love then I ever imagined.  Here are just a sprinkling of iPhone (unedited) pics that were sent my way over the weekend… Knowing your dog is in good, capable, loving hands?  PRICELESS.


“Hi Ma! Everything is GREAT here! Enjoy those Jell-o shots!”


Lots of luvin… I’m pooped!

I wish I was able to be this at ease every time I left him.  What do you all do when you travel?  I’m always looking for suggestions/ideas!

And a big shout out to J for taking great care of our boy (and providing us with lots of pics from the weekend– all photo’s courtesy of J’s iPhone!)

Chloe and Chocko’s weekend

Chocko had a visitor this weekend, our previous foster Chloe Belle!!!  Yup, her humans were in Me-he-co for a few days and Chlo got to play with Chock all weekend… and do I mean PLAY. ALL. weekend.  Sheesh!  I was getting flashbacks to the Tyson & Knox “rolling around like tumble-weeds” days.

We tried not to let them get too carried away, and only let them wrestle around for a few minutes before telling them to chill out (and they listened so well…I was impressed).

Now this is not the first time they’ve met.  If you recall, Chloe was adopted by our very good friends who also happen to live around the corner, so they’ve walked together and had many a butt-sniffs.

Speaking of butts, how cute are their lil tush’s?!

I think they look pretty good together, don’t you?

It was a good weekend tester…and it reminded us that just because this boy is four years old, doesn’t mean the play is all out of him.  Nope, he’s got a ton of play behavior left so it’s a good warning for us for fostering… starting from scratch there!

We’re up for the challenge (not yet though!)

Hope you all had a good weekend and got as much lovin’ as I did 🙂
