I came home from work on Thursday and there was a package sitting on our porch. Turns out we won one of the raffle baskets from the AKKAOA specialty a few weeks ago!! We didn't make it to the Specialty since it was all the way over in CA, but I still bought some tickets to support the club. I didn't even really get to see everything that was in the basket because the girls just grabbed their favorite items and ran through the house with them - they loved everything! I think there were some Yummy Chummies (which the girls LOVE), a raw hide bone, a stuffed raccoon, a chocolate Nylabone, and a pet blanket - all in a tin which I think will be the perfect size to keep their collection of Nylabones in. Here are some pictures of the girls enjoying their prizes.
Nari and Alpha fighting over the raccoon:
Alpha wins the battle and poses with her prize:
In the chocolate Nylabone battle, Alpha is victorious (after stealing it from Starbuck) and Nari lays in her bed pretending like she doesn't care:
Finally, Alpha is too tired to chew:
On Sunday we had our mimosa agility practice. Here are Starbuck and Nari anxious to get to practice (don't worry, they are wearing seat belts):
Luckily it was only in the mid 70's this morning so they all took advantage of the cool weather and ran around the field like crazy. Starbuck was doing much better with her focus and I think the weather helped her out a lot. And of course the mimosas were excellent. Here are some tired, happy dogs on the way home:
We were only a couple of blocks away from our house and we saw a turtle trying to cross the road. Aaron stopped and carried it across the street - so many turtles get hit by cars in our neighborhood. Hopefully that guy stays out of the road. When we finally made it back to the house, the girls went to my office and all passed out:
