Yappy Hour 2
  • 0
  • Last June I wrote about attending a Yappy Hour at a friend's home. This past Friday afternoon a good friend who lives on 10 acres had a bunch of people, most who had never met before, over for a 'Yappy Hour 2'. We headed toward the back of the property for the dogs to run and play, it is 99.9% fenced with 6 ft chain link, except the gate at the front no longer closes. My guys stay fairly close so I was not worried, they investigated all the back and got along wonderfully with 2 JRTs, a white Boxer, one Brittany, several terrier mixes, a Pug, a mini- Aussie, etc. I didn't do a head count but would guess around 15 assorted dogs. We all had a few glasses of wine then as it got dark, we headed inside?yes, inside, all humans AND dogs!

    My friend had 3 kinds of chili and snacks. We were inside for about 3 hours and only twice did one of her terrier mixes get snarky, and a brief time-out had him happily back in the mix. Mine of course begged, got a few nibbles here and there, but there was not a moment of any food or chewie resource guarding, as the dogs swapped out chews and toys. I know mine are good, but even I was shocked at how very good they were, as well as all the assorted other large and small dogs! At one point every human left the dining room and of course Nicky got into a chair and was about to "snack" when she was busted!

    I still think my friend was nuts to have an INDOOR Yappy Hour with food! But it was quite a hoot. And my basenjis were praised by everyone for their good manners. Miracles never cease!

  • That sounds really fun! I am surprised that your B's didn't go crazy after the Boxer. Both of mine seem to have a hate-on for Boxers. I have had to detach both of them from many boxer lips at the dog park. Every time wee see a boxer come into the dog park we pack up the B's and head for home 'cause we know the fight would be on.

  • What a blast that party would be! Did Don take pics?

  • He did, and if I weren't so ignorant I would post some! I only know how to send e-mail from i-photo, and there are other steps to get photos on this site. Sorry, maybe one of these days….

  • Anne, one of the great things is a free account with photobucket. Easy to upload and keep. Yell if you want me to walk you through them. You can even send by iphone to photobucket or a facebook account and transfer to facebook, then share here.

  • I'd like to second the recommendation for photobucket. Easy to use and a snap to post pictures from there to here. :)

  • I'll check it out. My DH Donald takes most of our photos and some sites claim ownership of all photos posted there so he is leery. Sounds easy enough, if I can e-mail photos there, then figure how to get them from there to here, haha!

    This site actually does that, but since the photos aren't actually physically posted here (uploaded to this site) , but are hot linked, I am not sure how they can be "claimed". That clause gave me pause as well…....and apparently also applies to what is written. It would make for an interesting legal case, for sure, if someone inadvertently posted copywritten material. Of for that matter if the material was posted elsewhere without attribution or with false attribution.

    BTW, from Photobucket's terms & conditions: "You retain all your rights to any Content you submit, post or display on or while using Photobucket. This means that YOU own ALL the Content you post"
