This past Sunday Brutus and I got invited to a dog party, hosted by one of our agility buddies, Jenn! Dogs and humans alike had a blast! There were more dogs (17 best I could count, but they kept moving...) than people, and it was fun for all! Us humans hung out & ate. The dogs had the run of Jenn's yard, complete with a pool and sandbox! There was even a doggy egg hunt (snausages inside), and a doggy pinata - Jenn totally outdid herself!! This is a bunch of dogs who usually "work" together (at agility practice & competition), that finally had a chance to play together!! Yahoo!
As the guests arrived ...
... our friend Courtney made sure everyone was properly introduced!

Brutus likes this picture - Amanda is asking if he can have a treat, while the other Amanda (they happen to both have the same name) gives him one!!
Brutus made sure that everyone brought something fun or tasty!

Brutus and Emma, the doberman (action shot, tennis ball involved). That's Jaeger chilling in the midst of things...
It doesn't have to be Easter to have an egg hunt - especially if there are snausages inside!!
This is Riot, a Border Collie puppy. He is aptly named...
...as he was a match for Brutus! Lots of body slams, take-downs and running! Sorry for the blurry photo, but they never sat still!!

Here's our hostess Jenn with the dog pinata (bones inside).
There was enough for everyone, so the dogs all played nice!
The humans ate hot dogs & hambarkers, and even had a few yummy "biscuits" (dog-bone shaped graham-crackers) for treats of their own!
Brutus made sure that all the plants stayed properly hydrated during the party!
It was a great party, and we send our thanks to Jenn for putting the whole thing together. All the dogs were contentedly exhausted by the time wrapped up, so it made for a quiet night back home. Brutus made lots of new friends - it was great to see all the dogs interact so well together!
We'll leave you with a photo of Sadie Lou, who was one pooped pup after all the festivities!!
