More B.A.R. Memories

Hey Everyone!
Wow, there is so much to share from the Blogville Awesome Retreat!     The other day I showed a bunch of photos of our furry and crabby furiends.

Well, our wonderful friend, Yam-Aunty held a touching Remembrance ceremony to celebrate our furiends who have crossed the rainbow bridge.   Here are some pix of her lovely ceremony:







We miss all of our furiends and Yamini's Remembrance was a wonderful celebration of love and devotion to their lives.

There were other flats at B.A.R. too!     I was even there in my flat version.  BOL

We were proud to escort our downunder furiends, Bella, Roxy and Dui to B.A.R.!

FnE got a special award for lighting the flame of Blogville and starting our community!

And there were other pressies too!
Oreo's Mom, Diana brought that jar of treats for everyone to guess at the number inside.   Guess what!?!?   My dad guessed 156 and he was closest.   So, he won the jar for me and those candy bars so that he and mom can arm wrestle over the chocolate.  BOL.    Check out Dad's cool name tag!

 AND, everyone was supposed to bring one exchange pressie that somehow represented their home territory.    The peeps drew numbers and here's what we got!
It was from our new furiends, Whitney, Zoe, peeps Ellen and Gordon.  They are from A Day In The Life Of Pugs and live in central Illinois.   All of the items in their pressie pack are made right there in their territory!   And, they had a cool written history of each item.    Isn't that fun?!?   They are super new furiends and their giftie is really great.   


And of course, the nutty peeps trying to control the pooches and the flashy beasts!   BWAR HAR HAR

Well, I can bark a pawmise that my peeps and my crabby girls had the time of their lives.   The loved meeting everyone and they send their thanks to Carol, Beth, Diana, Cecilia for coordinating everything and making it all such fun.    Gee, we should do this more often!!!!

Grr and Woof,
Sarge and Staff
