Darby's mom, Bryn, and her humans Wendy and Mike and their other dog, Dinah, spent the afternoon and evening with us yesterday and helped us celebrate Darby's 2nd birthday. Poor Darby! She didn't have as much fun at her birthday party as everyone else did. In fact, she spent most of the time on the middle or upstairs landings -- by her choice! And, when she did venture downstairs to be with us, she spent a good bit of the time barking.
But, even though Darby was shy and afraid of her dog guests (NOT the human guests--she loved them!) the rest of us had a great time together. I didn't take a lot of photos (what was with us this year, Becky??) but here are some of the good ones I caught:
|Mike, Dinah, Wendy and Darby's mom, Bryn|
|Pumpkin, Wendy and Bryn|
|Pumpkin being rude, but friendly!|
|Dinah wasn't so sure about her "Dad" lovin' on Pumpkin, or Pumpkin stepping all over her back!|
I think I will never stop marveling about my incredible chance meeting last year with Darby's mom and her family. As Wendy commented, it's even more remarkable that we enjoy each others company. Even if Darby wasn't so sure of that last night, the rest of her party was!
