was fun, but had to be kind of short. Kevin had a meeting to get to by 6:00, so we could only stay an hour.
It was a joint "birthday" celebration for Angus and Delta, his Coonhound friend, who is almost exactly the same age. We were also joined by Neyland, a bench Lab who belongs to another friend at work. I was really excited to meet him. He looked a lot like Angus in puppy pictures I had seen.
It was SOOOO funny to watch Angus, Simon and Neyland chasing after a ball. And Delta, the hound, who could not have cared less about a stupid ball. Angus, in his usual piggy-wiggy way, kept intimidating Neyland into dropping the ball on the retrieve. : Angus cannot stand for anyone but him to retrieve. Poor Simon never gets a break. No wonder he's so grouchy with Angus.
Neyland is BIG. He is shorter than Angus, who is about 24.5", but he easily had ten pounds on him. And a head like a watermelon! They are almost identical in coloring. Angus has a little more tan on his back than Neyland. He has a much heavier, wavier coat than Angus. Very thick. And his tail looked three or four times the size of Angus'!
Our host broke out the Frosty Paws, which Neyland had never had. He loved it! Simon growled at Delta whenever she came near his cup. :-[ I had to fast-hand her a lid to distract her away before Simon showed his butt.
Neyland got so hot, poor guy. I don't think he's used to heavy playing. He doesn't have a brother or sister to romp with. His Dad hosed him down to cool him off and that helped.
All in all, it was a fun time for all! The boys were really tuckered out when they first came home, but they are up and ready to do it all again now. Pictures coming as soon as I get the film developed.
