GALT Blessing of the Hounds

Hello Friends! 

It has been a while since we really wrote anything, The Momma lost her PawPaw last Saturday the 16th and has been very very sad :( He fought against the evil Cancer for many many years.  We never met him but we know he would have loved us, he loved dogs and children and his family so much.  The Momma says he was a wonderful man and she misses him greytly. So this whole week we have been spending time with her, doing our funny halloween pictures, trying to cheer her up and keeping her mind busy.

Well, ALL week she has been looking forward to going to the GALT Blessing of the hounds which was tonight at sunset. We almost didn't get to go because there was a HUGE storm that blew through! There was hail and wind and thunder.... luck was on our side though because the sky cleared and the sun came out right when we needed to leave the house! So The Momma quickly loaded us into the HoundMobile and we were off!

We were 15 minutes late but we made it!


Here we are loving on the nice balloon lady, Sara


The Momma was given two balloons, one for Martin and one for Outlaw.  The ladies took time to read names of houndies that have crossed The Bridge, there were so many..... The Momma was surprised to hear our brother Outlaws name since he died over a year ago, that made her heart so happy <3 
They read Martin, Rachael, Pudge and Braden's names too.  then we all released our balloons into the sky


See that cute lady smiling at us? That is Gaea's Momma Barb <3 we lubs her


and here is Gaea! We haven't seen her since our night on the town! Mimi the Tutu'd Jack Russell Terrier was supposed to meet us here too but her Momma was not feeling good :(


Here Gaea and Bully conspire the next night escape adventure 


Lookie who else we ran into!!! Its Cricket!  he used to be known as Ray (or "Raymond" as The Momma sometimes called him) and lived with us for a while as a foster! The Momma was so happy to see him and he looks so good! He remembered The Momma and Bully :) 
(Nelson was not living with us when he was here)

Here we posed with Cricket


Then with Gaea, it was getting dark so the pictures are kinda horridly lit....  

 Here we are mingling, Gaea again in the background


Then this very nice lady blessed us and we each got a treat!


All too soon it was time to go so we escorted The Momma back to the car in the spooky dark


Then guess where we went?

Yep! Sonic! Here we are looking over the menu... 
a moot point since all The Momma ever lets us get is a plain dry cheeseburger....


cheeeeeeeese burrrrrrrrrguuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....................


Then we were headed home once more, an hour drive... when we got near the house it started getting very foggy,  probably the result of the storm that came through earlier. The Momma said something about it being thicker than pee soup.... we told her that was gross, even to a dog.

anyhow it was really pretty so she stopped on one of the country roads 
and took a picture of the pee soup moon. 
shouldn't it be yellow?


and that was our adventure!

Thanks for reading and see you on facebook!
Bully and Nelson

  4. Bully and Nelson, I am so sorry to hear about your Pawpaw! We somehow missed that, and we are very sorry.

    I am so glad they didn't cancel the blessing! It looks like so much fun there. And I'll bet a certain Licorice is now drooling over that Sonic! I get to have strawberry shakes when we stop there, but it's not often enough for me!
