Reunion Season

Hi friends! This was the best weekend ever. On Sunday, my people and I went to my dad's hometown for a family reunion. I love reunions! They are always full of suckerspeople to beg from and feed me.  Mom said if I play my cards right, I could attend FOUR reunions this summer! That's one reunion for each paw. Wow! Mom said not to get too excited because one is in North Carolina. I don't know where that is, but it's a long drive and my people could only go for the weekend. I told her I didn't mind riding that far. Plus think of all the suckers family that would be there! She just said I was silly and I rolled over for her to give me a belly rub.

Anyway, Sunday was Dad's dad's side of the family. It was outside at a church's picnic shelter. The land the church is on was formerly owned by the family, so there were lots of family members that went to Rainbow Bridge in the church's cemetery. 

I was ready to go early:

 This is the cemetery. Mom, Dad, and I went walking after we were done eating. Mom said I was only allowed to potty on the trees, so I did.  Our walk kind of reminded me of my pal, Bandit's, walks. Except his cemetery is bigger.

Here is me patiently waiting for a sucker someone to give me food. A little boy kept dropping his ham, so I helped him clean up. Someone else gave me a bite of their carrot cake and then let me lick his plate! That guy was my favorite!

Hey Dad, you gonna eat all that?

Dad wouldn't give me any, so I stuck my tongue out at him.

After the reunion, we went to Mawmaw and Pawpaw's house to help them with their internets. I always love their house because it's chock full of food! They gave me a little more carrot cake and let me lick icing off their fingers. I also love their house because they have a huge yard. Part of it is a garden, so Mommy didn't let me potty there, but I ran and galloped and pranced all over. I told Mom she needed to get me a yard like this one. She agreed that I'd love it. Now we have to work selling the idea to Daddy.
