I forgot to mention this last night....

Jack had fun at Jeremy and Kippy's last night. He did very well with their dogs. We brought them some of Jack's favorite treats as a "Yay!! New friends!!" gift. Unfortunately, the play time between the dogs didn't last as long as we thought it would. Jack has an obsession with toys. More importantly, tennis balls, bouncy balls, squeaky get my point. As soon as Jack saw a tennis ball, he was done with the dogs. Conversation went about like this....

Dante/Britley: Play with us! Play with us! See the duck? Let's play with it!

Jack: Sure, I'll play...

Narator: Jack comes screeching to a halt as soon as he sees the tennis ball. He runs to it and
looks at it with love and longing.

Jack: Hey there lover...what's a good looking ball like yourself doing on the grass and not being thrown for some lucky dog to chase?

And from there, it was game on! Jack decided he'd much rather find some poor sap to throw the ball for hours and hours instead of play with Brit and Dante. They tried really hard to get his attention with their squeaky duck, and taking the ball from him and running around in circles outside, to jumping in the pool and splashing around. Jack was having none of it...he only had eyes for the ball!

We each took turns throwing the ball for a little while, and poor Brit and Dante had no chance of getting it if we threw it past them. Jack is a fast little booger! We did make sure to throw it directly to them so they'd have a chance. Jack kept losing the ball under the couch, so I decided it was time to take my one-track minded dog home so he could play with his pink glow-in-the-dark ball that doesn't fit under the couch. It was a very nice visit and Jeremy and Kippy's house is awesome! I'm so excited for them...they had some horror stories from the whole buying-a-house process, so it's nice to see them on the other end of that.

On a side note, Kippy is a professional photographer and has taken AMAZING pictures!!! She has been a close family friend for almost 6 years now, and even took the photos at Adam and my wedding. She recently posted some awesome pictures of different scenery in Nevada. I have a link to her blog listed on mine, so if you have some extra time and want to see cool pics, check it out!
