We took my mother-in-law to the park for a picnic today. We all had a nice outing. Plenty of sandwiches, birds and butterflies. Really nothing out of the usual. Nothing bitchy in our party.
When Your Mom's a Doggone Bitch
We noticed several people arriving, each family with one or two chocolate brown Labrador retrievers. The dogs appeared to dragging their leashed humans to a spot across the green from our picnic, so I walked over and asked one of the humans what was going on.
The dogs had invited their humans to a combined first birthday and Mother's Day party for the bitch who whelped all twelve of them at once.
The gathering of the clan
Getting group-sniffed from both ends.
I don't think the dogs recognized each other at first. It took about one half hour of tense ass-sniffing and growling before things calmed down and everyone walked to the river for a group swim.
Family reunions are are all the same.
