We had a lovely celebration for Gabi's 16th Birthday. She has not been well for the last week, so the fact we were having a birthday was a celebration in itself.
Hugs on the lounge chair to start off her party...
The grill master working on the main course...we left Gabi in the chair and she loved every moment
Some grill chicken for starters
Loving the chicken...
Hanging out with her great-granddaughter Paris and her great-great-great granddaughter Rehannah...
She enjoyed a bowl of ice cream with maple syrup to finish off the meal.
Our sweet girl Gabi...always our puppy and now 16 years old. Where does the time go?

Paris bump and run
Paris is doing a dance...she has a new Champion son, BPIG Can Ch Laureate Inception! Finn won Breed over Specials and on to Group 4th and a Best Puppy in Group to finish in style.
Finn's pre-show preparations...take a walk, lounge in the pool. We'll try to take some glamour shots before he decides to go swimming again.

The dogs enjoyed a long walk in the main field today. It was a warm day and after they have run laps around the field they were very hot.
Several of them found the ditch prior to coming home so I started to fill the pool...
I had gone to the store yesterday in search of a kiddie pool for the dogs. They were sold out at Wal Mart and the only one left at Home Hardware was a bit fancier with a little elephant spout for the hose.
The three Paris-Digit kids thought this was the greatest thing ever...the Eva puppies didn't go anywhere near it...and when I put them in they jumped out as soon as they could. Rehannah was also a bit of a goody two shoes and didn't want to get her feet wet.
A great way to cool off after a long run...we'll see if we can convince the others of this as the summer progresses.
Cocoa wallowed in the ditch before coming up to the house and we were shocked when we saw her! (yikes) She didn't appreciate me cleaning her off in the puppies pool. She was as happy as a pig in mud with her mud mask.
