Going to the Dogs!

We returned from our trip to Kim and Julie's with a big crush on Miss Nellie who is pictured above with Jane. What a sweetheart!!! Oh yeah, and Kim and Julie were pretty nice too! Kim and Julie have 8 dogs! It sounds crazy and it is a busy place; but these are all dogs they have rescued! Jane was really trying to get permission to take Nellie home; but Nellie is a package deal with her Great Dane friend Ruby.
Look at that face!!!!
So you can get an idea in the difference in sizes; we go from a St. Bernard to a Pomeranian! The dogs are: Biggie (above), Vera (below), Kaj, Ruby, Dakota, Parker, Nellie, and Chance Marie. They are all very lovely and well-behaved doggies.
Below you see Jane with the Great Danes, Kaj and Ruby. I have never seen such big dogs before. Kaj is very tall.
We ran around a lot and saw lots of different sites.
Here we are at a very interesting market place in Columbus where you can get any kind of food you want. Above is me, Jane and Julie "peekering" out.
Above is Kim, Julie, and Jane (sitting on a pumkin!)
Of course we had to hit some antique shops!!! I did not buy the drinking glass set above; but only because I have several already. I love the glasses in the holders.
Okay, I usually wear really comfortable clothing (to say the least); but sometimes I wish there were days when I could wear something like this (and fit into it!)
One of our first stops on Saturday morning was the local library where Julie and Kim get their books from. I love to check out other people's libraries. This one is gorgeous!

We had a wonderful weekend talking, laughing, shopping, petting dogs and generally just hanging out with Kim and Julie! Thank you gals for your hospitality!
