So I graduated this Saturday. A time to celebrate with family, friends, and the important people in your life.
And of course, the important puppies in your life.
Unable to smuggle Espresso into the ceremony, she instead made a critical appearance at my graduation party. And
even my 14 year old Lab was able to join the festivities.
Espresso was amazingly social and quite popular. The aunties of course doted on her, but sh
e also made a lot of fans of the parents. My "second father" Brett probably held her for an hour. As he put it, "She likes the view up here." I took that a step further by demonstrating my skilled Dachshund lifts. What gets me is she really DOESN'T mind being up there. She must like the view.
Espresso will also never turn down the opportunity to lick carpet that may have once in its history had food on it.
Brandy was even...brought into the festivities by a loving, yet over zealous Auntie Nicole.
This is after all an event where I wanted to be surrounded by family. And these dogs help define my family.
