Stella and KC had themselves a pittie party this weekend, inviting a few of their closest pit bull friends over for a Memorial Day swim.
Most had attended doggie daycare – so we knew everyone was dog friendly – but just like with kids, the introductions were slightly awkward. Once they met (sniffed each other’s butts), got over their shyness (ran away), and established ranks and set boundaries (growled), everyone relaxed and had fun.
KC only showed her true (mean girl) side once…when claiming her outside couch-throne. A few minutes inside for a time out, though, and she got the message.
Nancy and her recent foster fail, Big Kahuna (with a name like that, you know he’s from Stray Rescue) get used to the water
And he’s off!
Tot, rescued by Stray Rescue with her brother Tater and adopted by my friend Nicole, brought her own pool to the party.

Cockapoo KC has no problem partying with the pitties. Here she passes by Niki, who chooses not to follow the crowd.

Nicole rethinks her snack time idea. Actually, they were all very well-behaved 🙂 To her right (besides me laughing my head off) is Mia, a pugador (pug-labrador), whose dad Brad works with me at the Watering Bowl.

Stella, almost 11, made an appearance until nap time; then we never saw her again.
We had one minor mishap. Tot, whose legs are as short as a Basset Hound’s, took a flying leap from the 4-foot wall to the pool deck and landed on her chin. We don’t know how she didn’t break a leg or her jaw.
Our hope for the day was to hang out with friends and watch the pups run around and wear themselves out.
Based on the pictures sent to me later…
…I’d say the party was a success.
