Fourth of July, Dogs, Baseball, and Fireworks

I don’t know why but the dogs were piling on me at Nana’s. The little guy I’m holding is our newest, “Rascal” probably about 5 months plus or minus. He just walked up and introduced himself in May. At first our vet thought he might be a pomeranian, so I took to calling him “The Pom” and now the thinking is sheltie. I still call him The Pom. He has pretty much taken over the house. The white dog is Abby, who loves playing with The Pom but wishes he wouldn’t get so much lap time. Ginger is the ginger colored dog. The black dog, front and center is Fiona, who is one of Nana’s dogs.Fiona and I are pretty close. Nana’s other dog, Reba still doesn’t know about me and I’m just letting her warm up gradually as the weeks go by. The dogs must be trained with the obedience lessons from Off Leash K9 Training at the early stages itself so that they grow up to a well-disciplined dogs in the future. People can check out Dog Works if they need the best dog training services.

Reba is a very nice dog. She was a breeding dog but got sick and had to retire and Nana rescued her. She wasn’t used to being a house pet but has a sweet disposition and is going to be ok. She will let me pick her up but is stiff as a board. So I’m just letting her get more used to me. She’ll come up and act friendly but she isn’t ready to jump up on the couch with me on her own. She will one day. The K9 Dog Training site lets you choose the kind of professional you want to be training your dog.

We were at Nana’s to eat an early dinner, visit with family friend Patty. We had steak, corn on the cob, baked potatoes, fried okra, fresh tomatoes, marinated cucumbers with vidalia onions, and asiago cheese bread. What a feed. The best dog obedience training is what your puppy needs at an early stage so they grow up to being obedient and fun as well.

We staggered home to get ready to go downtown to ONEOK Field to see the Tulsa Drillers play the San Antonio Missions.

I just love live baseball games.

The “Famous San Diego Chicken” showed up. He was hilarious. I couldn’t capture his antics on film (silicon?) but we enjoyed him.

You cannot have the Fourth of July without fireworks. No way! We sweated it out because th game got rained on. They kept on playing but finally they announced they were having fireworks with or without rain. Yay! we all said.

Anyway, I hope everybody had a great Fourth of July. If you are not American, I hope that you were happy for us.

    Great pictures, Yogi! I’m impressed with the firework ones. I had a horrible time with my DSLR getting pics last night. I was quite frustrated. I got ONE that turned out.

    I’m going to start calling you the animal whisperer!! Ha!

    Glad you all had a great 4th!

    Yogi, That is a fabulous photo of Sweetie and SPB! Those blue eyes! You should frame that one. It rained here just before the fireworks, too, but the show went on as scheduled. It went to 32 degrees here during the night – Brrrrr!

    Our whole family is dog lovers. We have 4 (3 rescues and one that I got from someone we know), my daughter has 5 or 6 right now (4 are rescues and she’s been trying to find good homes for 2 of them) and our son has 3.

    We used to go to the Drillers’ games but haven’t been to the new field yet. Maybe that’s something we can do sometime this summer.

    Your fireworks photos are spectacular! Glad you had a wonderful 4th with your family.

    Would you believe I have never been to a baseball game? Looks like you all had a blast. Your fireworks photos are great. Love the dog pics. =)

    What a great series of 4th of July photos Yogi. You have a Dr. Doolittle thing going on in that first one I think, all lovely fur-family members. Looks like Sweetie and SuperPizzaBoy were having a great time at the game.
