Party, Puppies, and Playtime.

We had a great weekend and hope that all of you did, too! Our weekend was filled with family and friends! Friday night, we went to the Hendrix home for Adrienne C.'s engagement party. I finally got to meet Caleb, her finace', and really liked him. They are a precious couple! It was great to see them and to catch up with a bunch of other guys/girls who also went to Vestavia.

Saturday, Josh and I grabbed Miley and ran out to Dr. Okin's to get her some flea and heartworm prevention pills and for them to cut her nails, aka: talons. We found out that our friends, The Jacksons had been in there with their new puppy, Samson, that morning and had been given the "go ahead" for him and Miley to play at one of our houses! VERY EXCITING! Apparently he's going to be a hoss b/c he was 10 lbs at 7 weeks and is now 13 lbs at 8 weeks! (At 9 weeks, Miley was a little over 8 lbs and was not 13 lbs until she was 13 weeks old!) Afterward, we went by the pet supplies place to pick up some oatmeal shampoo and a new toy for our gal. I wish I'd known that Josh anad I were going to end up at World Market Sunday b/c I would've waited and checked out the shampoo the Keevers use on Buck and apparently love... but alas, I did not know. Guess we'll have to wait until the next bottle of shampoo! While we were there, we weighed Miley on the scale by the doggy salon and she is a whopping 26 lbs herself at 20 weeks. I'm guessing she'll end up around 50-60 lbs full-grown... but she's a Heinz 57, so we'll see! We are working on getting ourselves and Miley more exercise, so we went to the Samford University Intramural field to run around and play with Miley. It was kinda hot on Saturday afternoon, so she didn't last too long. Once we got home, Miley sacked OUT! At about 4:30, we went with my family to the Carvers' house to visit and eat dinner with my dad's childhood bestfriend, Bobby, and his precious wife, Rhoda, who were in town keeping their adorable grandbabies, Cate and Emory. They have 2 dogs, a Bull Mastiff, Elvis, and an Austrailian Shepherd puppy, Alice, so we got to bring Miley over for some play time! (YESSS!) Alice had a reputation for not liking dogs other than Elvis, but our sweet Miley charmed her and they got along well! See pics! I was surprised at how bold Miley was to chew on Elvis' tail and head, b/c he's a biiiig boy! If he didn't like something she was doing, he'd just let out one huge bark and that was it. lol... Miley praying Emory will drop a goldfish. Ha ha.Sweet Cate enjoying her fudge brownie!Don't you just want to kiss those cheeks!?These kids get me excited for babies... One day...Outside watching the pup-kids and Cate play in the sandbox.
Cate was SO sweet to Miley... here she is making her some "food."
My bold little one...
Seriously, Miley... lol. You're a brave girl!
What a cutie!
Riding in the car...
Playing fetch with mom in the house
"High five!"
More indoor fetch.. lol those ears!She used to have to reach for the water thing when it hung off of the cabinet knobs... she's getting so big!

Grace was in town this weekend, which I loved. She came over Saturday night after visiting with Bobby and Rhoda to watch a movie. Then, Sunday morning after church, we went over for leftovers lunch with mom, dad, grace, and paige. I always love having the whole family together :)

CUTE pics of Miley!! The ones of her playing indoor fetch crack me up with her ears! She's such a doll. I can't believe she's so brave with the big dogs!!

And just a PS about the shampoo - our FAVE "dog" shampoo is Pantene. lol Seriously! We always bathe Gainer in it (followed with a bit of Pantene conditioner) and it makes her smell really good and look really shiny! We sometimes buy the off-brand Pantene (CVS or Walmart) and it works just the same and is MUCH cheaper than the "dog" stuff...I think it's like $2 or $3 for a big bottle. Kelley & Jay have bathed their dog (Abbey) in it forever too. It works great!

I think you should print the "ear" picture and make it a notecard or something. It is too cute!
