My daughter asked me to take care of the three Bits and her three dogs while they went to the Skyline Drive. Sure, bring them on! (I used the title from a book I read about a grandparents' home when the kids come-- I thought it fit!)
This was her view this morning-- stunning. I think I'll go there next.
But, the dogs and kids at my house didn't have the same view-- they just saw a lot of dogs and a lot of kids! Lottie Moon, above, is one of their dogs and very laid back. She just found a place to rest.
And the kids and I went out to swing. Bitty Bit, Lil Bit (with her new short hair) and Beach Bit. Drill Bit was on his "bike."
Beach Bit loves all the kids here-- but his look says different haha.
Poppy (my husband) taught them all how to take the couch apart and make it a jungle gym-- thank you so much.
And Drill Bit found the crate on the deck. It was donated for transport, and I had cleaned it. He just thought it was a new toy.
Or a house--
I have eight Pekingese here and one Lab-Shepherd mix who is a gentle old girl. She's like the Nannie dog in Peter Pan, ever watchful of her kids.
Jasper is just watching the chaos from the stool. It's amazing how well ALL the dogs (even Cranberry!) are doing with four children here. Jasper keeps wagging his tail at them.
Kai Kai is in his favorite spot by one of the rockers. Look at his coat! Beautiful!
