Happy Thanksgiving!

Owens River
 We packed up the pups and headed to Mammoth Lakes for Thanksgiving this year. The weather was beautiful, the food was delicious, the dogs had fun, and we got to spend time with family. What more can you ask for?

Friday we took the dogs down to the Owens River to run around. It was Roland's first time in the area and he had a great time running his fool head off. He even mustered up the courage to swim across the river when the other dogs did. Well, Ayla walked it since her legs are so long. My city dogs sure did enjoy playing out there; I wish we had something like it here.

It was the first time we've taken the Ford off road, and it did wonderfully.
We also did a little target practice with Greg's 9mm.

The ride home smelled like wet dog. But it was worth it.

I think Roland didn't want to leave. He really enjoyed playing with Willie and being spoiled by my brother-in-law and his girlfriend, and eating cookies for breakfast. We'll have to go back soon! Thank you to my wonderful family for a fun Thanksgiving, and I hope everyone has something to be thankful for.
