Ember and Lil Belle's 9th birthday party pics

Yep, hazel is slooooooowwwww! Ember and Lil Belle celebrated their 9th birthday back in August and I'm just getting around to the pics now. So, without further ado:

It was Party Day! The day was fine and warm and everyone was looking forward to celebrating Ember and Belle's birthday.

No Birthday is complete, of course, without a card.

"That card smells wonderful, Dad!"

King Ember, being the generous soul that he is, shared his new Toy with Deputy Brier:

In another part of the yard, Cass rolled the magic Kibble Kube.
It spits out kibble as it rolls and the Princess~Queen is the best roller the Pack has.

She rolls it and any dogs in a nibbling mood follow along, skarfing kibble out of the lawn.

Needless to say, Cass is a very popular girl at these events.

There were also the traditional games of Kong:

"Throw it again, please!"

But it was a hot day as many August days are wont to be and the Pack enjoyed frequent breaks in the shade:

The day got hotter and the festivities wound down so the Pack agreed to a bit of a photoshoot.
hazel, of course, could not let such an opportunity pass

Glad you enjoyed them!

And I just noticed that in the shot with hubby and Brier on the bench under the deck, you can see a hummer at the rightmost feeder!

I love "Pack" pics, their markings are so beautiful. You have "liver and white", "black and white", and then both?

Yep, Marty, but in setter parlance it's "orange", "blue" and "tricolor". The white is just "understood" to be present in an English setter.

Thx, breeze and doggy lover. There are other party pics coming--Brier had a party in Sept, Grace will have her party pics as soon as she's feeling well enough the weather allows for a party, and Cass's b-day is at the end of the month. Cole's birthday was on Halloween, but he got a run in the woods for his big day, so no party pics....

They're as soft as they look....both to the touch and personality-wise, Bina.

She's feeling much better, breeze. We're just transitioning her over to regular kibble again from the soft stuff. She's not quite out of the woods yet, but she's getting better every day!

So excited to see pictures of the pack.

They always bring a smile to my face cause your pictures are so beautiful and so are the pack subjects.

Happy belated 9 birthday's Ember and Lil Belle.
