Picnic (sans the rain)

Once again, it was time for our annual Golden Beginnings Golden Retrievers group annual picnic this afternoon.  I had made plans to attend if my road trip to Manila came out well.  This is the 4th annual picnic we have attended since we got joined the group and got Grayson and each year is another adventure.  Good food, lots of dogs, great weather.  This year was a drier than last year (no rain), but still wound up with a bunch of wet dogs.  

Who loves that "wet dog smell?"
Doggie heaven

I'm not afraid of you guys...

These people know how to seriously party.

You talkin' to me?

The whole tribe
Definitely a wild group

Oh, yeah.  This is my kind of party.  

Does this look like I am having fun?
And, of course, when we finally get home, somebody has to guard the fortress from the invading horde...

Yes, that definitely looks like a successful doggie party. Grayson and Claire seem to have enjoyed themselves. I'm sure it was a real treat for them, especially after your recent absence.

That looks like so much fun for them! The amount of tennis balls in the water cracked me up! :) I also noticed everyone was wearing shorts still. I'm envious!
Was there a buffet line for the dogs as well? You know how swimming makes you hungry....

That looks like such fun! I wonder if I could crash it next year with a borrowed golden? Maybe I could dye China!

I love the photos - all the fun without the wet dog smell.

The second photo really tickled me! Looks like a crocodile infested swamp - but with Retrievers instead!
