Play Date With Walter P

Today Polly had her first play date with "cousin" Walter P.
They had a wonderful time and played very well together.
I know Polly is looking forward to another play time.

A warmer day .....

A very nice spring morning and the dogs enjoyed playing in the yard.
By mid-afternoon the rains came again --- April showers bring May flowers -----

What a difference a year makes......

A Boy and a Dog

These photos were taken exactly one year apart. Memorial Day 2007 ( a couple days after we brought Pollyanna home ) and Memorial Day 2008. Same boy, same dog -- who has grown more ? :-)

First "REAL" Snow -- 2007

Polly enjoyed her first measurable snow. Both she and Munchkin had a great time running around making tracks through the snow and just plain being "kids" in the snow

Polly Had a Happy Thanksgiving ;-)

Gee, Jeff, thanks for "letting" a few pieces of turkey "fall" on the floor.
And Munchkin had a great time too

Polly and Munchkin

These two are the best of buddies -- even though sometimes Polly thinks of Munchkin as a toy and drags here around the room by the nape of Munchkin's neck. When Munchie has had enough she sure lets Polly know. They are never far from each other -- true friends.

Look at me -- am I Queen or what?

The hotel we are staying at on our trip would let dogs 25 pounds and under stay in the hotel. Munchkin just barely made the limit and our dear Polly -- well, an almost 7 month old lab weighs a lot more than 25 pounds -- so she couldn't come with. However, she is staying with Linda and having a wonderful time. There is another pup about her age there and they are having their own wonderful vacation.

Anyway, on our way to Springfield, MO we stopped at the Peru (Illinois) Antique Mall. It was too hot to leave Munchkin in the van so I was walking her outside -- one of the workers came out and said we could take her in if we carried her -- she's too heavy for that -- then the gal said why don't you use the baby stroller and push her -- that would be OK. Well, Munchkin thought she was a Queen -- couldn't resist taking her picture. Isn't she a cutie?

Oh boy, I'm in trouble now......

Darn, Munchkin, I told you to grab an end of this slipper -- now I'm busted.

Slipper???? ~~~ What Slipper????

Munchkin, you grab hold of this slipper too, OK?

Boy and Dog

Pollyanna sharing her "pool" with grandson on a hot summer day. Drew will be heading home tomorrow after a long stay with Gram & Papa -- it looks like Polly is telling Drew she will miss him.

Polly is beginning to learn the basic commands. This is just a little fun video -- she does much better when I dont have a camera in my hands.

Puppy Reunion ~~ What a lovely afternoon..

Be sure to click on the photos to enlarge them --- and be sure to check out three videos.

Yesterday was the Puppy Picnic (reunion) at Sommit Labradors. What a fun filled afternoon for both puppies of all ages and their human companions. Polly's first stop was the puppy play area. Here are some photos and a couple quick videos of the wonderful afternoon.

To Linda and Larry who hosted this wonderful event -- our appreciation -- it was fantastic. Everything was perfect from puppy to people treats, nice cold drinks for all -- wading pools and safe play areas for the dogs. Truly, you had to be there to appreciate it. And I sure am glad Pollyanna and I were there. Thank you again.
Polly had such a fun day. Here she is, all wet - and so tired - from the pools and so happy.

This is my favorite photo of the day. Babies and dogs -- can it get much better? (The beautiful dog just happens to be Martini, Pollyanna's mother)

Tomorrow we will be attending Sommit Labrador's Puppy Reunion. Hopefully it won't rain as Linda has lovely things planned -- and we are looking forward to seeing all the wonderful Labs. I hope to get lots of photos to include in Pollyanna's Pages.

Polly Steals The Show

We attended a family gathering today and Pollyanna stole the show. Just received some lovely photos of Polly taken by Amy Boyle of BoyleJillson Photography. Amy's photos really capture an eight+ week old puppy and the joy this little black four legged ball of fur brings to young and old alike.
