Happy St. Patrick's Day! (And lots of other photos...)

stpat13


So like I said, BEAUTIFUL day (and no, the snow is NOT all melted, so the contest continues!). It was in the mid-50s and sunny for most of the day. So we decided to take Dahlia down to the park. We mostly wanted to get some photos of her with silly St. Patrick's Day things on (ok ok so *I* wanted that!) but we ended up having a total blast there!

First, some of the silly St. Patrick's Day photos.

On the way down, we stopped to chat with a neighbor of ours and Dahlia got to see her BFF Duke. Duke is all of 23 pounds and they LOVE each other.

Just how cute is he, really?

Hot dogs please?

David decided that I should pose with Dahlia in silly headbands.

Dahlia had great fun playing with her toys.

And sitting pretty. Or pretending she's Dorf. I'm not sure which.

Stick 'em up!

She also enjoyed watching for other dogs.

She LOVES her Daddy.

And then we went over to see the ducks and geese, which are returning...and we got......THIS!

Oops! We didn't count on that...and look...VIDEO! It's another one I wouldn't watch with the sound on as David kept asking me a question and thought I just couldn't hear him.

I like the geese, Mom!

Then I noticed that there were some folks letting their dogs play over at the other part of the park. So we headed back over and Dahlia got a chance to meet up with Hobbs (another border collie mix) and Mack (a Standard poodle). Duke also showed up briefly. A few photos of the dogs!

I swear that dog can look DROWNED but her tail? That stays dry. I secretly (or not so secretly lol) think she won't swim because it requires the tail to go into the water.

BE GRATEFUL! i never thought anything about it because puppys tail is always up, and very rarely EVER gets wet. but with molly, her tail is usually down or at most, straight out. and omg you do NOT want to see a long fluffy sopping wet tail furiously wagging back and forth. you may as well go take a shower right there and then. because that long fluffy tail, it doesnt get much water shaken off when they do their doggy shake thing. oh no. or worse yet, getting thwapped by the soaking wet tail. between the two of them i have no idea how i manage to stay dry sometimes.

How old is Dahlia. Is that graying on the muzzle I see?

She's had that there since we got her, so I'm not sure if she's really greying. It might be getting more prominent but it's hard to tell! She's around 5 we think, but we're not 100% sure.

See, here she is two years ago and you can see it there too:

groomers6

She sort of has random white hairs all over her body. There's the fur at her haunches (which you can really see in that sit pretty photo!) and there are a lot of white hairs on her chest.
