Burt met a new friend, Louie! Louie's the dog of my friend from work back in CA that I ran into here in NC. She moved here, too! Although I had no idea til I spied her coming out of a Marshall's one fine Saturday morning. They got along just grand, both running in circles and battling over sticks.
Apologies for the image quality but I wanted to show off one of the houses in our neighborhood. It is decked out for Halloween. They even nailed boards across all the windows for a haunted house effect. The large grim reaper is made with a basketball goal. Almost all the homes in the area are decorated to some degree for Halloween. I have to say I find it charming.
Last night we had some houseguests who brought their dog. So, we had 4 adults, 2 dogs and 1 cat crammed into a 1 bedroom apartment overnight. Needless to say, it was a little bananas. Today we're supposed to be heading for the state fair but it's raining at the moment - hope fully it clears up by this afternoon.
This is a pretty typical dog park scene with Mr. Burt Reynolds. He's the instigator, leading all the other dogs in mad high-speed tears around the park. We can't even take a still shot of him - he's just non-stop action.
