It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

Many More Great Birthday Pics! (Thanks Denise!)

Here are some additional photos from the California "Trees" Birthday Celebration last weekend. These were taken by Denise Sponsler. She has a good eye and a nice camera, with a feature that allows you to take a series of shots in quick succession.

As a result, she has some wonderful action shots that string together like a slow-motion picture. Below is one segment of a series in which she captured the Three Brothers, Captain, Fig, and Sage, playing together.

But there are a LOT MORE great pictures!
You can see them all on Trenton's Photo Gallery.

. . . and a good time was had by all! I'll bet the dogs will remember it for almost as long as do the people.

I showed these photos to Watson and told him he's be joining in. He can't wait!

Yup...we'll see you for a birthday party reprise the day after Thanksgiving at the ranch Watson! Get ready for a wild time...and a bit of turkey!

I was thinking today (a rare feat for me) that we will have 12! corgis in attendance for our "Black Friday" bash. Can you imagine trying to explain to my mother the relationship between them all? Better start drinking BEFORE you get to the ranch. :-)

Elbeepem said...

Yes, by my count the dogs will, once again, outnumber the people. For the Birthday Party we had 9 dogs, 8 people. This time it looks like 12 dogs, 11 people!

But, what color will the puppies be? :-)

It looks like my sister Myka will be joining us at the Ranch so we could be in a tie now.

Oh, thank goodness! Now we at least have a fighting chance of getting our share of the turkey if there's one person per dog!

Of course, at 10 weeks of age, Watson might count as just 1/2 dog when it comes to turkey portions...don't tell him I said that!
