Last Hurrah!

Our house went on the market last weekend, and by this weekend, we had a signed offer for full asking price. Did not expect it to go that quickly. 
Before we got the carpet replaced and listed the house, we had one last get-together. Trina came up with her kids and boarders. Nerice came with her kids. That made a total of 16 dogs in the house. Always seems to turn out that way.
There never seem to be enough dog beds for everyone.
After smoking for 7 hours on the Big Green Egg, the spareribs were ready.
Nerice also has a Canon 7D with some nice lenses. I tested out a couple. I love how close you can get with the 100mm macro.
Abby is always happy to pose for a shot.
Petey tries to hypnotize with his cuteness.
Petey personally tests to see if the ribs are ‘fall off the bone’ good.
Diego says, ‘save some for me’.
But then comes under Kevin’s spell and completely forgets about the ribs.
Cali: Sorry Shiloh, I’m not giving up my spot.
While everyone else settled in after a few minutes, Petey was still going strong.
Stella, would you like a Petey of your own?
Greyhounds are napping. Petey is eviscerating the orange gorilla.
We have had some good times at this house, butI’m sure the kids will be happy when this whole move is over, so they can start a new routine and settle in.


  1. Congratulations! Do you have your new home lined up?

    Love all the photos! Looks like a great last get together.

  2. Lots of happy memories to take with you to your new home.

  3. Moving is definitely stressful! Congrats on getting the house sold so quickly, though. That must be a relief!

    Petey cracks me up! What a character. I bet Stella would like to have a Petey of her own!

  4. Wow! That was fast. Now where will you take all of those fabulous pictures of the dogs in their respective sleeping spots? Good luck on your move.

  5. Holy cow that looks like sooooo much fun!!! Congratulations on selling your house and good luck with the move. May it be effortless. You've inspired me to actually plan and hold the greyhound Christmas party I've been contemplating.

  6. You guys must be living right to get a contact that quickly. Good luck in your move to the new home and as Mad Rad Hare suggested, make sure your new home has a "Top Shot" vantage point!

  7. Wow, well done! Now the fun starts:) Hope you find a new home with a view (of sleeping dogs!) quickly. Petey is a character:) Lovely photos, I sense another lens in the pipeline?

  8. What! I didn't think it was possible to sell a house for the asking price within a week. It had to be all those magical greyhound vibes. Congratulations! Can't wait to see your new digs. Oh no, the Green Egg! If you ever meet my husband you must tell him that that is a terrible thing. Otherwise, there goes my collar money. Do it for Freedom, Casper & Nikki.

  9. wowee well done you, time to start packing I reckon.

    Loved seeing the photo's of all your lovely visitors.

    Love Sue and the Taylor pack plus Belle

  10. Maybe Petey would like to come on my road trip! ;)

  11. I think I'd quite like a Petey of my own too. What great pics. You did well to sell the house so quickly. Good luck with the move

    Love and licks, Winnie

  12. Oh Petey. I am sure they will be happy the moving process is over!

  13. Great pics of Petey! I was shocked that the house sold so quickly too - congrats! Happy house hunting :)

  14. Thank you so much for your generous donation and for following the bos on their walk, we really appreciate it!

  16. as always, greyt photos! I so love Kevin. And well done for having the house sell so quickly. I hope the ensuing move will not be too stressful for all involved.
