Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Today we went to the Halloween Spirit store. Battier did very well! She did get a little scared of the ghost popping out of the coffin, but who wouldn't? The important thing is she recovered very fast and didn't react after she saw it a second time. 

Scary! Lots of sounds and movements going on at the Halloween store. 

We got a weight check at Pet Food Express, 65 lbs! Such a big girl!

Dog Fest Walk 'N Roll came to a raining Sacramento...our first and only day of rain in October. We made the best of it and had a great day! 

We are SO close to raising $1500 for Canine Companions for Independence! We have 2 more weeks to get donations in. If you would like to donate, click here.

Getting everyone ready for the walk!

After Dog Fest we went to lunch/dinner with some Dog Fest committee members..we had some very tired puppies under the table!

Dog Fest Walk 'N Roll is finally here! We're hoping the rain holds off for our fun walk! Tonight we went back to the park to do some final touches and to change the layout of our event. It's going to be great and our stage is now under a covered area.
We love Johnson-Springview Park! They have a GREAT dog park, just for service dogs and puppies in training. 

There was a beautiful sunset tonight at the park. 

We went to check out the new layout. 

The new layout. 

Thursday Night Football

We're a football family...49ers fans, but I also cheer for players that we meet at the Celebrity Golf tournament at Lake Tahoe. Last night we had to cheer on Britton Colquitt and the Broncos! 

We also recreated this photo with Grammy last night! So cute and amazing what 10 months will do!

Happy 1st Birthday Battier!!

Battier had an awesome 1st Birthday today! We had a puppy party on the tennis court with some of her dog friends. They played for a little over an hour and had homemade Frosty Paws! I blended yogurt, peanut butter and carrots together and added a carrot sprinkle to the top! The dogs LOVED them. Good news for Battier and Shawn is I have left overs for tomorrow.

The 15th of the month pose.
