I check in at the Welcome Center, paid for the cottage and found out that I could take the earlier tour. I met a really nice lady that is here from North Carolina for the week so we hung out until orientation started. Patti was wonderful and explained everything, gave us all the information, our badges and sent us to watch the video. Afterwards we hopped in the van with Jennifer and several other day visitors to take the 90 minute tour. I had not taken the tour since 99 and SO much has changed and grown. It's just unbelievable.
Spuds has a GIANT head. HUGE. He is Pit Bull/American Staf mix and his profile says he weighs 61 pounds. That said, he's THE biggest baby I think I've ever met.
We settled in at the cottage...he made himself at home quickly and popped the tennis ball that came with him in about five minutes flat. :)We decided to take a walk back behind the cottage, there is still a lot of snow & ice left in places from last month.
We headed back to the cottage where he took a quick nap on Jen's bed (ha)...He slept while I unpacked my suitcases...until he saw the toy donation bag open. Green stuffy man lost his life in less than three minutes. I took the rest of the stuffing out and he played with the carcass for at least an hour. This boy LOVES to play.
Another nap on the couch and I couldn't stay up any longer. At this point it was only 9:30, but I was exhausted. He made sure to plop himself smack in the middle of my bed and that's where he stayed until morning.
Whoever adopts this guy is one lucky person. He's got it all...looks, personality plus he's so much fun. He had on the harness and is known to pull but he was a doll on the leash the entire time. Sunday....we have a "sleep in" pass so Spuds doesn't have to be back at Dogtown till 10. Dogs are the agenda for the day and a new sleepover pal.
If anyone is interested the rest of the days pictures are at the link below. I haven't taken the time to edit, label or put in order but at least I got them uploaded. ;) If you click on the slideshow button at the top of the page you can then adjust the speed.
