A Beautiful Saturday and Tons of Pictures

Saturday was a BEAUTIFUL day in upstate South Carolina so Mamma made us take a B-A-T-H!! Normally this would be a bad thing but it has been a long cold winter so we've put it off for a bit. It kinda felt good to be clean-ish.

Since Nikki belongs to Dogs for Autism, we get to use their grooming stuff at the dog kennel. AND there are horses at the kennel too!! There is about 10 acres and we can run and play off leash.

Daddy dries Nikki off with the "reverse vacuum thingie".

That's a funny look from Lucy. Spa day is supposed to be relaxing.

Let's get your chin, Lucy.

It's a dogs life...

At least someone is happy about spa day!

McIver keeps an eye on the horses.

What're you looking at?

Caution: Big Sheppies at play!

McIver is one beautiful boy!

We took the boys to the SC Botanical Gardens at Clemson University. They enjoyed the beautiful day with Mamma and Daddy.

Calhoun and McIver

WHAT is this place?

Weird place. Daddy has a weird look on his face too!

Mamma loves her boys!

Calhoun tried to jump through the hole! NOT a good idea...

McIver is a "marking" fool! McIver peed on Daddy's foot. "You're mine Daddy-o!" 

Daddy and McIver still friends!

Slate is not as comfy as the couch.

So we had an exciting day and everyone slept very well.

By noon on Sunday, everyone was nice and dirty again...all is right with the world!


  1. Looks like a great day (except for the baths and the marked foot!)

    Happy Tails,FUREVER!

  2. A wonderful day for a B A T H.. though i never like them anyways... but i think mine is coming up too. This sure is a wonderful place to run free. Thanks for sharing the lovely place with us.

    woofs n licks,

  3. I think it be only fair that you march your daddy back ofur to that dog baf torture place and gibs him a baf now that he has pee on hims foot.

  4. Lucy is just adorable in her little spa.


  5. We aren't terribly fond of baths, but we must say you all look terrific. And what a fun day! We had some good weather here too, now it is cold again. We are OK with cold, but we sure would love some more snow.

    Have a great week.

  6. SPA DAY!!! So nice that you get to use the facilities at the kennel. Everyone looks great! Glad you were dirty again by yesterday afternoon, though :-)

  7. We're with Shawnee! It sounds like your dad needs to share the bath experience. Morgan and I had to take baths on Friday because the dog park was muddy, but it was worth it! Dad found more mudballs on Morgan's belly later after it was over, too. BOL!

    I would love to run with you guys, but Morgan even more so! She says she'd be happy to join in Sheppie games.


  8. What a beautiful area. We sure love your huge playground
    Benny & Lily

  9. Such a khontrast to our weather!

    Thanks fur sharing!


  10. What a beautiful day!
    I envy the beautiful weather you are having!

  11. What if someone tried to steal your daddy?? See McIver was only keeping him safe saying "back off, dis is my daddy!"

    Okay, I'm just defending McIver cause he's so hunkalicious...I may have a crush! But how can I choose between Calhoun and McIver?!?!?
