You might think I’m nuts, but when I invited my family to my house for Christmas dinner, I had them bring Everyone in the family. That included everyone’s four-footed children.
Twenty-six people and seven dogs over 50 pounds each (except for the puppies) Yes, chaos ensued for a bit. But those pups sure did appreciate it. they had a great time, and my Chloe was sad to see them all go.
The nice thing was that no one had to rush home to feed their dogs or let them out. My yard may never be the same, but who cares?
Here is a precious moment that came out of the event. This is my Chloe taking some time out away from the other dogs to play with her mother, Mitsy.
Chloe is the silver with the pink bows. And Yes, dogs do remember their birth mothers.
How cute is this?

Sixteen little words stared up at me, the blue ink solid and demanding on the white ruled surface… permanent.
