Today was possibly the most epic puppy trip I have ever been on. Definitely the most memorable by far. Missy's first time planning a POOP group trip to the Toronto Islands and what happens? Why, a torrential thunderstorm of course! Thankfully it didn't come til the end of the day when we were heading off the island. It had been drizzly and wet the entire day, but I didn't really notice because I was having such a good time. And then as we were leaving, the skies opened up, and I am not even kidding, torrential bullet-sized rain came down like there was no tomorrow. I, being a genius was in tshirt, jeans and flipflops and hadn't brought along either a sweater, jacket or umbrella. Go me. It was ridiculously epic swimming through the rain and puddles making sure Boss and I didn't drown while simultaneously running as fast as we could for cover.
Anyways, it was a smaller-than-usual but still good sized group at 15 puppies. Unfortunately, Sam and the Amys were not there today so I was dragging my feet a little this morning cause I was so sad they weren't going and I'd be the only kid. But then two other teenagers ended up going so I chatted with them. Also, I had forgotten a couple of my very favourite POOP group adults were going as well and of course I love Missy so I ended up having a fantastic day.
We had three ADS puppies,eleven DGC puppies and one pet! We were quite the spectacle especially with cute little puppy Wilco! Also there was a little mini poodle that reminded me of Fielder and made me miss him terribly.
This group is just the Dogguides puppies, past and present!
Walking around the island, Karen and I spotted a tennis court and asked everyone if they wanted to let the dogs have an offleash play for awhile. Everyone agreed, so off they went.
A bunch of the dogs playing in the huge puddle. Rory the pet dog who decided to lay down in the puddle and get muddy and sopping wet. And then run at me, thus causing me to run backwards screaming while everyone else laughed at me.
Later on I had to steal Wilco for puppy cuddles! Presenting Mr Cutiefacepie:
Look at those huge floppy ears! The teeny paws! The little nose! *sigh* I can smell the puppy breath.
Here is my favourite picture of Boss of the day! It's on the pier and you can see the CN Tower in the background!
Finally, after walking around and playing and working hard for five hours, we headed home and Kango, Kongo and Boss collapsed in a big wet pile of tired puppy.
