The view from the backyard. All the cousins playing

Yesterday I shared a video of my pup Chloe playing in the front yard with her birth mother.  Very cute.

Here is what the backyard looked like for most of the day. Eight dogs and a bunch of kids. I’m sure all of them fell asleep the moment they got into the car to drive home. Ah, family get-togethers. There’s nothing like it. 🙂

Those two smaller dogs are three-month-old puppies. They certainly hold their own, don’t they?

  1. That was great! I love the cuts on the poodles! Where is all the snow though?

  2. Maybe we should all take a cue from those pups—a good game of chase would burn off a lot of the holiday calories! 🙂

  3. Sounds perfect! Molly and the German are busy now playing hide and seek in the backyard bushes despite the chill. (nap time is coming…really…they are bound to tire out sometime….)
    Hope your new year is bright and wonderful!

  4. Dogs on a romp! Happy New Year!

  5. Lucky you have a big enough backyard for dog frolicking. 😉
    Happy New Year!

  6. As long as they don’t dig under the fence and run away, I can think of many worse ways to spend a holiday afternoon.

  7. Nothing better than watching a bunch of dogs playing. I always wish I could join in.

  8. Your own little dog park. Love it when they run and play like this, and Chloe just looks so happy. 🙂

  9. Looks like a lot of HAPPY dogs. Wish mine played well with others, i’d have loved to watch them play with a group like this! So cute.
