Our Sleep-Over at Dog Pad

Hi furkids, Tasha here. Oh, my dog, did we have an adventure! Our sleep-over at Dog Pad was really fun after we got over the initial shock of not being home at night with our humans. Believe it or not I didn't eat my dinner after momma and dad dropped us off. As most of you probably know, I do not miss meals. Let me repeat, I DO NOT MISS MEALS! So for me not to eat, that is really saying something. Eva didn't eat either, but that was pretty much expected.
After we got relaxed and had some sleep, before we knew it, it was morning and time for breakfast. Eva and I were both REALLY HUNGRY and proceeded to polish off BOTH our dinner from the night before AND breakfast! At about 9:00 a.m. the day care doggies started to show up. All Right! Play time! Too, bad that it was raining most of the day. Eva didn't care, though, she wanted to stay out back in this great outdoor area.
Eva and I were just minding our own business, having fun, when what happens? WE GOT BATHS:( We were having such a good time, being good pups, what could we possibly have done to deserve that? Oh, well, it wasn't soo bad. Tory was really good with us. We like her! The humans think we smell good, but I preferred the way we smelled before. As you'll see later in this post, we have lots of resources to get our proper dog smell back.
Around 3:00 p.m., I detected a familiar sent. Dad didn't say anything when he walked in hoping to get some candid shots of us. It only took me about 30 seconds and I KNEW he was there. I started letting all the other pups know that my dad was here!
Here's Eva when she found out that dad was there.

This picture was as soon as dad walked in. For once he was ready with the camera. This is before I realized he was there. You can just see my back in the lower left corner and Eva is in the upper right corner. That is Tory letting some doggies out to play. Isn't this a great indoor play area? We really like the raised cots. Very comfy! Tory sure has a great place here.

In this picture, I've figured out that dad was there! Can you see that I'm still wet from my bath? We have quite the pack of pups here, don't we?!?!? What a good time!

Here is a video of me letting everypup know that my dad was there.

We were SOOO happy to be home and back to our routine. And that means we have to go check our territory. What a wonderland of muck! We were so excited! Do you pups think that there are any possibilities here for Eva and I to regain our doggish aroma?

All in all, we had a really good time at Dog Pad. Having all those new friends will help us not miss our humans as much while they are on vacation. Why they can't take us with them is beyond me. Something about trauma for us and their wallet.

We hope you enjoyed the little tour of Dog Pad and our fabulous swamp-like backyard. Everypup, kitty, and GG have a great day and week to come!

Belly Rubs, Tasha.

There's NO place like home, there's NO place like home!

We're really glad you had fun at Dog Pad! I (Gomer) was there on Friday, but I don't see me in any of your pictures. I think I was in the play yard getting muddy... since I had to have a bath before I went home, too.

Tory's baths aren't as bad as the ones that dogmom gives us. Dogmom insists on using the noisy blowing machine on us when we get baths at home.

Wuf Ya! - and see you next week. By the way... don't think of it as being left behind by your parents... think of it as getting to go on vacation where THEY're not allowed to come!
Wuf Ya!
Gomer and Opie

(By the way, Tory has been teasing us that we have girlfriends now...)

You'all had a good time! What fun for your sleepover. But, we heard your Dad really missed you. So give him lots of kisses.

Hi Tasha and Eva - dogmom said to ask you to send her an email at so that she has yours and then you can link to our blog.

Wuf Ya! Gomer

Wow, there's a lot of dogs there! It must have been really fun! Thanks for telling us all about it. I enjoyed the pictures!

Though it was fun, it must feel good to be home again, eh?

That looks like so much fun! We're supposed to be going somewhere like that a couple times a week but haven't yet.
