A very social weekend
We're sacked out this morning--the weekend was very busy and social. It rained all Saturday, so we all hung out and snoozed (hounds do NOT do H2O at all!). Yesterday, we went to Paws Fest at the Washington Animal Rescue League, an annual celebration of all the good work the shelter does to help homeless pets. We had a good time--lots of people and even tv cameras. I'm featured right at the end of the clip. (I wasn't feeling very verbose, but Bernie thought I looked very nice indeed.)

After the event, Mom and Dad decided to take advantage of the nice weather and took us for a hike in Rock Creek Park. We sniffed and snorted--there were lots of smells. Unfortunately (well, fortunately for Mom's shoulder) there were no deer to be chased.
Mom was laughing at Wimsey's comments about his guardians' "hound wardrobe". Mom definitely owns a lot of "hound clothes" too. It's funny watching her dash out the door in the morning if she's wearing something nice in an attempt to avoid drool and fur. One of her winter coats is black, and I take great pride in the fact that whenever she wears it, she has furry mementos of me and Bernie all over it. We believe that when you live with a hound, they are ALWAYS with you! Anyway, Mom and Dad also had time to take new howl footage this weekend--the results are impressive.
