Counting Down!

We noticed on the ticker today that it is only 65 more days until B*A*R*!  Now for anyone who does not know, this is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet a bunch of fellow bloggers IN THE FURS!  Look at this picture and tell me you could resist Stanley's smile.

No, you could not resist.  Those who come to the B*A*R* will find out that Stanley LOVES people. One pet and he is your friend furever!  And when you meet me, Murphy, you will find out that I am sweet and loving BUTT if Wilson is around I will use my devious tactics to get you to throw him for me.  And we are both really smart too.  Look at this picture.

You will also meet a whole bunch of other doggies and their hoomans!  We are wondering if Frankie & Ernie are going to bring their tighty whities?  The Crabby Girls are coming cuz Sarge had a prior engagement so they will report back to him. Stanley is looking forward to seeing Jessie and is thinking of ways to keep Casey preoccupied. We heard that Oreo is bringing his bubble machine. Now that sounds like fun!   Dory and Arty are coming all the way from California!  Did you know that when we met Dory in the furs that was when the idea of the B*A*R* was born? 

You should also know that we will be totally international since Hailey & Phod are coming from Canada and YAM Aunty is coming all the way from Scotland!  Stella is coming so she can give us the inside story of Queen Wein (is her reign of terror over or just beginning?) and Jester can bring us up to speed on all the animals around their house. Are those coyotes still coming by?  OMD, we will even meet Sydney from Mr. Chewy (and she's bringing treats)!  With Flat Madi coming we will be able to get a photo of ALL the mayors of Blogville!  Wow, that will be an opportunity fur sure!  And we think Ruby (Pip's Ruby) and Frankie's girl Abby are coming too.  Wow, this is gonna be CRAZY fun!

The weekend is going to be very casual with lots of time to relax and get acquainted.  Sure we have some activities planned (there are 2 ceremonies you can join in on by sending your photo to us - see the April 14th post on the B*A*R* blog) but everything is geared around strengthening our friendships.  Oh, and there will be lots and lots of dog walks too.  Here's another picture for you.

So make plans to come, even if you can only come for Saturday.  You are welcome, your critters are welcome, even your hooman family is welcome!  Just make a plan to be there!

Be There or Be Square!

Murphy & Stanley

Pee Ess - We now have 3 candidates to be our next Mayor!  Remember the dead lion is April 15th - NO EXCEPTIONS!  See details here.
