Pawty season has opened at Hazel Run

October 30 was the 5th anniversary of the arrival of Princess Lil Belle, Ms Muddy Mossy Messy Macie
and Lady (in Waiting) Ridge at Hazel Run.
59566

And Halloween was the Sheriff's 7th birthday (a very lucky number of years to be :dog:).
This all meant, of course, that there was a pawty in the works...

The Sheriff wanted to sleep in on his birthday, so the Hazel Run Daddy brought his birthday cards over
and held them low so Cole could read them, too.
59565

Then it was time for a good hearty breakfast and the first of the day's patrols.
Because even on a pawty day, the Sheriff and his Deputy never miss their morning rounds. :D

Finally the morning's duties were done and the Pawty was declared Open.

To start off the festivities, King Ember and Amazing Grace put on a spectacular display of Synchronized Kong Chasing:
59568 59569

59570
Even though Grace had a bit of trouble staying in synch once she hit the deep leaves,
the Synchronized Kong Chase was a big hit with the rest of the Pack.
And, of course, they all had to try their paws at it. :pawprint:

Grace led the way with an amazing leap!
59571

59572 59573
Her Uncle the Sheriff showed a fine talent for the game, as well.

Soon, the entire Pack was leaping after wayward Kongs and rolling in piles of leaves and having a fine old time!

The Sheriff enjoyed himself immensely...
59574

...as did the anniversary Girls and the rest of the Pack.

In fact, the whole pawty was a big hit and went amazingly well,
despite a small difference of opinion between Grace and Deputy Brier...
59575

59576
...which they managed to work out amicably. :D

As the party wound down, there was time for birthday and anniversary hugs on the deck.
59577

"What a wonderful party that was!" mumbled Sheriff Cole sleepily after a celebratory supper.
59578

"Sure was!!" yawned Grace. And she fell into an amazingly deep sleep.
59579


:dog: The End :dog:

They sure seemed to enjoy their pawty :goodvibes: :cloud9:. I love how even Ember and Grace's ears are synchronized as they're flying after the Kong :D.

Yep, they really practiced hard to get that all down pat! :laughing: not

Actually, I didn't even notice how synchronized they were till I was going through the pics and Ms Macie pointed out their superb form to the HRM. :D

We went from 90% of the leaves up to 95% of them down overnight, so there were lots available to rake into huge Kong-hiding piles. The dogs love sniffing out hidden Kongs almost as much as they love plowing through leaf piles. :D

Thanks for all the good anniversary and birthday wishes! The Pack was very fortunate in that the leaves all came down the night before Pawty Day. Made for excellent leaf piles to plow through :D

And, they sure do love their daddy. :cloud9:
Yes they do. When the HRD is around, the HRM is about as exciting as a wet dish rag! :laughing:

Looks like they had a blast Hazel...I like the pic of Brier looking at Grace, as much to say "gimme that kong woman" :laughing:

November 3rd, 2009, 10:55 AM
And Grace glaring right back at him, "Make my day, Bubba!" :evil:

So, who ended up with the kong?

hazelrunpack
November 3rd, 2009, 11:11 AM
I believe it was lost in a sneak attack by Lil Belle! :laughing:

Love it...I guess she thought "while you two think about it, I'll just mosey in" :laughing:

Such a happy pack. My girls love to play in the leaves at the park. I shine the lazer light into it and Halo goes head first.

hazelrunpack
November 3rd, 2009, 01:49 PM
Halo will play with a lazer light? We've only had one dog that loved to chase lights--that was Gauge. I'd sit with my back to the french doors and reflect the sunlight off my watch crystal onto the walls and floor. Kept Gauge fascinated for hours! :laughing: But none of our subsequent dogs has showed any interest... :shrug:

No ya wouldn't. :o The whole time we were raking them into piles, the dogs were peeing on the leaves. :dog:

:laughing:

They don't seem to mind, though. :D

:laughing: I like that one too ..... omg they are so spoiled :cloud9:

Not spoiled--just appropriately pampered. :D Not to mention leaf-covered by the time they were done! :laughing:

Thanks for all the lovely comments. I'll be sure to share them with the Pack when they get up in the morning. :D

Thanks, breeze and AG. They're pretty disappointed now that we've hauled all the leaves over to the compost corral, AG :o But it's lots easier to do poopie patrol now! :D

Yes they do. When the HRD is around, the HRM is about as exciting as a wet dish rag! :laughing:

Awww, I'm sure there is at least one dog who prefers the HRM :D. Although maybe it is nice for the HRM to have a break when the HRD is around :laughing:.

Love those pictures Hazel, especially the one with the Sheriff and Deputy on patrol and the last pic of Grace :cloud9: :lovestruck: :cloud9:.

It can be a lot of work, but they're well worth the effort, Ryan. Once you get into a routine, things can go almost smoothly. :D

Awww, I'm sure there is at least one dog who prefers the HRM :D. Although maybe it is nice for the HRM to have a break when the HRD is around :laughing:.

Okay, I'll admit that madame hazel is guilty of occasionally lazing in bed on weekends and letting the HRD take the dogs out for the first time of the day and feed them breakfast. :o

Love those pictures Hazel, especially the one with the Sheriff and Deputy on patrol and the last pic of Grace :cloud9: :lovestruck: :cloud9:.

Did you notice the truck pulling out of the easement on the patrol pic? That's the guy that owns the cabin behind Hazel Run. He comes up many weekends and the dogs never tire of giving him a properly barked greeting and a properly yapped farewell. :dog: Not sure if he's appreciative of the attention or not. :laughing:

And Grace...well what can I say? Grace is just too freakin' cute for her own good. :D
