#FarmPawty held at @PierreThePoodle's House 9/24/11
Attendees: @AngusFala, @BigBoyBosco, @BusyButtons
@IamZorro, @Niqqi, @PierreThePoodle
This past weekend, on Saturday, M and D went to an anipal meetup at @PierreThePoodle's house. Dang it all, I didn't get to go with cuz M thought I wouldn't handle dat long of a car trip and because there were going to be so many doggies there. She thought I'd be afraid, but..... they are all my friends, so how could I be afraid of dem? Now I have to turn my bloggy over to her cuz she wants to tell you all about the fun time they had WITHOUT me! Then, to make matters worse, she didn't even show my picture (I made her photoshop it now on the group picture). She claims they were having so much fun dat she forgot! Likely excuse!
Don and I had so much fun. It was so great to meet all the wonderful doggies and their fantastic humans.
Since it would have been a good 7-8 hour trip from Green Bay to Pierre's house, we opted to spend Friday night in Madison, and again Saturday night after the Farmpawty. It was a much more relaxing trip.

Thank you so much Cindy and Bruce for hosting this fabulous event. We had such a great time, and it was so fun meeting you and Bruce, and Pierre finally after talking to him for 2 years, and his sweet sister Laci.
Unfortunately, I didn't get too many pictures of each human with their animal. Once everyone arrived, we had at least 12 doggies milling around, all having fun and getting along like they were old friends. No squabbles either. But I did get a few random shots of:
|Emily and sweet, shy @BusyButtons|
Dee and @IamZorro, who still thinks he a cute little puppy, but is really a cute big doggie.
TreatTime for Lisa's crew (@BigBoyBosco & house mates) All that mayheim around and they still manage to sit with full attention on Lisa. Dee (Zorro's mom) is sitting along side Lisa.
Adorable @Niqqi sitting next to her mom, Dana. Yes, she's every bit as cute in person as she is in a picture. Such a little "lady" too!
Next to me is @BigBoyBosco, then his mom, Lisa. Standing in the center is Dana holding @Niqqi. Niqqi's dad is seated across from me.
@BigBoyBosco with Patch on the left. Standing is Dana with @Niqqi, seated is Niqqi's dad, Bruce.
Left to right (I'm sorry I don't remember this young man's name, but he's a personal friend of Cindy and Bruce, along with his doggie who fit right in); Angusfala's human sister holding Laci, and holding Angus' sister on the leash; Patch is the white dog with his rear to the camera - good shot; Dee holding Zoro on the leash; Lisa holding one of her doggies on the leash - looks like Ginger's head maybe; Cindy holding Pierre; Mary, Mariodacat's mom; Dana holding @Niqqi; Emily holding Buttons; and Kim (@AngusFala's mom) holding Angus.
What a great group of friends. I am so blessed to be part of such a wonderful group. This will be a trip I'll remember forever. Even Don said he really enjoyed it. He's the one who I dragged along kicking and screaming, but who had to admit it was way more fun than he thought it would be. He also said "what a great bunch of people and well behaved dogs") I'm still amazed that there was never a fight among the dogs! i think that demonstrates excellent training by their wonderful humans in seeing that the dogs are well socialized and get to doggie parks for more socialization as often as their time permits.
Sadly, @SidTheCatahoula and his humans, and @Kyba and his humans could not join us for the day. I would have so enjoyed meeting them too. I just know they also are wonderful people.
