This shindig is usually held at Lucky Dog and we had never gone. But, sadly, my all time favorite dog store is closing at the end of June. It's so awful - not only do I like the merchandise but I just love the owner Beth Fox and her trusty side kick Boomer. They're great people, love dogs and are very rescue oriented in special activities they hold at the store. When I got the email that the store was closing, I was really quite surprised at the overwhelming sadness that hit me. I have a lot of good memories hanging out with friends and Joey and helping find some great homes for dogs in need or helping raise money and awareness for them. Lucky Dog, you will certainly be missed.

After I got home, I looked up Bed & Biscuit PetCare to see exactly what kind of company they are. I mean, they were fantastic to our two wiens today. I quickly and easily found their website and they have an awesome idea!! They're a boarding company but they have homes in the area where people take your dog into their home while you're gone. They choose homes that have an individual in some type of animal related field like groomers or vet techs and they mostly seem to be retired so your pooch can be around people most of the time. Isn't that a fantastic idea? I know so many people that feel consumed by guilt by putting their dogs in a kennel. No matter how loving the people are, we still feel like we're caging our dogs up and letting them be virtually ignored while they're gone. I've never been able to bring myself to board a dog because every time I almost I do it I collapse into tears out of sheer guilt and figure something else out. I know I'm not the only one out there who feels that way because I've had this conversation so many times. Now I'm anxious for someone to try them out. Hopefully next year I'll have enough pesos saved up to go on vacay with JTK and I can try it out. Check them out!!

So far this has been a super weekend. I've really enjoyed spending time with JTK and we've had some serious laughs with our pooches and friends.
