A Dog Day Afternoon

And now for some silliness. Our sweet Scout turned two a few weeks ago and we had ourselves a doggie picnic.  Lots of toys, an obscene amount of bones... even a monogrammed canine party hat.  In the interest of full disclosure, there may have been an element of guilt involved it this little shindig.  We've been so wrapped up with our daughter lately that we've been neglecting the pets a bit.  Corgis are known drama queens... sad eyes, big long sighs, expectant sidelong glances... and our Scout is a pro at laying it on thick.  So maybe we went a little overboard with the doggie treats?  Totally worth it though.  She was so excited for the extra attention that she even wore the party hat.
