The day was absolutely beautiful. We started our journey for the day by retrieving Rocket and Gideon for a walk. Despite the fact that he had already had his own walk that day, Giddy was ready and rearing to go! Rocket is entirely over her bout with heartworm and romped along the path, stopping only for the promise of a treat. Giddy was well-behaved and now takes treats like a gentleman (no more sore hands for Nick and I from an overzealous chomp!).

Upon returning, we set went with Giddy and Rocket into the middle play area and set to some attempts at playing fetch. This was mildly successful with Giddy, except when Ava came over and let us know that soft frisbees were for happy chewing.

Nick got some good cuddle time in with the Gids and Ava:

While Rocket tried to pry more treats from me by showing me just how well she sits!

We ended with the puppies, Wolfgang (the one who had pneumonia previously and who was NOT the runt as I previously wrote! Sorry!) and Llama (she's the runt), who were tired out from romping with an earlier volunteer and friends. But, oh, how cute! After a quick game of tug-a-war with my camera bag, the pups fell asleep on mine and Nick's lap. We then put them to sleep together, where they reached out for each other with their noses, made a contented noise and settled back into sleep.
