Last week I was invited to attend Ritter’s Ice Cream Shoppe’s “Dog’s Night Out” with my friend Susie Q , her husband, Bill, her daughter, Grace, AND, of course, the dog of the hour, Kipper! I was able to retrieve a few photos from the now dead camera that will need to be replaced when I get back from California. So here are some pictures of a few dogs that were enjoying a nice spring evening of canine socialization.
While the dogs were busy romping through the patio area, the humans in our party enjoyed soft custard ice cream treats. I had a fabulous turtle sundae, as did Susie Q. Grace had some strange concoction that looked like crumbly dirt and some colorful worms. I think Bill was the only one that had a simple serving of ice cream. Even Kip partook of HIS treat- a small dish of vanilla custard and a miniature dog bone.
Kipper, anxiously awaiting his serving of ice cream.
This guy was HUGE…. He looked like a miniature pony as he lumbered behind his master!
This fellow had GORGEOUS blue eyes.
And this little ball of fluff struck a pose, as if to say, “I want ice cream, too, please….”
Do you remember the big shaggy sheep dog on the show, “Please Don’t Eat the Daisies?” Or how about the dog on “Flubber” or Tramp on “My Three Sons?” This dog would give me fits if I had to groom him!
I wanted to say, “Oh please don’t lift that back leg on me, buster!”
Suave dog, taking a deserved rest from socializing…..
Such sad little eyes on this beagle…
Remember the lab that looked like he was getting ready to lift his leg? Well, he had a penchant for sniffing other dogs’ hind quarters, too! LOL
The dalmation is thoroughly enjoying his dish of ice cream! And the big guy is getting a nice ear rub from an admirer.
You will undoubtedly get to see some professional looking photos when Kip and his Mom, Susie Q post theirs. But I hope you enjoyed viewing a few of the furry friends I got to see last Monday!
OH! This cracked me up- there was even an open invitation for anyone to witness the upcoming nuptials of 2 dogs on May 16.
Owain, a corgi, and Meeka, a shiba inu, met in doggie daycare as puppies and developed a close relationship that matured beyond puppy love. The wedding event is being sponsored by Club K-9 Doggie Daycare and the owners are hoping to raise funds for SICSA and the Humane Society through a bridal gift registry for the couple. Wedding cakes for both canines and humans will be served at the event. The couple will enjoy a complimentary 2-night honeymoon stay at the daycare center.
Love is definitely in the spring air!!!
