Playing with the Goldens Picture Post

sweetest looking little tan and white beagle with large eyes and tiny paws, and a little tag that says HenryThis is Henry, jumping up on my leg. I don't really know him, other than that he adopted me at our favorite dog park yesterday. Actually, he just wanted some of Cabana's liver treats. But regardless, isn't he the most adorable fellow? He looks almost like a toy!

cabana running several yards behind golden retriever who I think is Sierra Rose but not 100% sure!But we didn't go to the dog park to meet Henry. We had a playdate with blog friends Golden Samantha and Sierra Rose! This was our first person-to-person meeting, but I hope it won't be our last.

two yellow labs dashing around in blue wading poolOur dogs had a great time with each other, but Cabana was a social butterfly. I don't think she's ever met a dog she didn't like (although some may not have liked her). Here she's in the wading pool with Murphy, a yellow Lab that looked so similar to Cabana that I could only tell them apart by Cabana's black collar.

cabana sitting down with her tongue hanging out, mud all over her faceOf course, Cabana had to thrash about in the big mud puddle. WHY is no one surprised?

two goldens standing in a humongous and gooky mud puddle, with their face down in the mudBut Samantha and Sierra Rose enjoyed the mud, too, so what's a doggy mom gonna do?

cabana standing in blue wading pool, tongue still hanging out, covered with mud, knee deep in dark brown waterThe doggy moms are gonna encourage their dogs to get into the wading pool...although I'd hardly say that brown water made anyone "clean".

Samantha and Sierra Rose got hosed down--but the mud stuck to their coats a lot more firmly than to Cabana's (oh, the blessing of Labs' short coats). After our playdate, they were marched directly to the dog bathing salon at Pet Food Express, where it took 45 minutes to get them clean!

we three women on a park bench with their dogs in front of them, sierra's mom is smiling, and samantha's mom and I are laughing uproariously about something, the two goldens are looking muddy, cabana looks fairly clean but she will not tuck in under my seat the way the other dogs are; she always has to be out in the middle of everything!  another beagle, not henry, has jumped up on the park bench and is trying to get the treat that sierra rose's owner is holding in her hand
Humans and dogs all had a great time, although I'm not sure what was so funny when this photo was taken. And look, there's another beagle, trying to get Sierra's treats--those moochy beagles! Thank you for playing with Cabana, Sierra and Samantha! It was a fantastic morning!

What fantastic pictures!! All that mud scares me because I know exactly who would end up rolling around in it!

I learned my lesson about taking treats to the dog park. I suddenly became the most popular person there! :)

Henry is a cutie. Actually, everyone looked like they had a total blast. And we certainly say the quantity of mud involved always is a measure of the happiness.

I always love seeing blogger reunions - and in this case you could not have picked better pooches to hang with...
