It's so neat when you get to meet blogger friends in real life! Yesterday, I took Mabel to meet my first blog friend ever, Velvet Sacks. Velvet's blog is what made me realize I should blog too, so you can say it was life changing!
I had met Velvet years ago but when she said Mabel Lou would be welcome to come visit, I jumped at the chance for a change of scenery for the girl. Mabel is used to going everywhere with me and between the heat, Granny's old car with no a/c (not that the Mabel Jeep has a/c)!!), and me being gone to the hospital so much, Mabel has been stuck at Granny's with the occaisional trip down the street to see her cousin.
I was most excited to meet Velvet's boys, Levi and Gimpy! They are so cute! The girl KNEW she was going somewhere... and just knocked me into a falling dive trying to get into the car! Here she is...ready to roll...
Here's Gimpy and Levi after one of our ball playing sessions outside. The boys heard my car and came running to the fence with a ball! What a pair!
Mabel was too hot to be anything but calm... thank goodness. She did snoop in every single room! Velvet and the boys were so kind about that!
This is one of our play sessions. It was so hot, they were brief. Gimpy always allows his big brother to get the ball. On the few times he got it, he would drop it before they got to me, allowing Levi to bring it on home!
Meanwhile, Mabel Lou explained to Velvet just how much petting she requires of new friends...
I kept playing with those boys. They have the most amazing "old soul" eyes! They are both sweethearts but... I have to admit to having a huge crush on Gimpy! He's SUCH a lover... kisses and cuddles galore... just my kind of pup!
We had such a nice visit and it was just wonderful to be able to pet those handsome boys in the furs!!!
