Molly is Part of Our Family…Wedding Invite

Whew!…..We made it through this CRAZY SUMMER!

Not only did we have our kennel filled to the brim but our oldest daughter Madelyn got married August 27th.

Yes, engaged in May…married in August.

Whirlwind of JOY :0)

Molly Dressed for a Wedding.

One step of the wedding planning, was compiling the guest list.

That list of  people that have been key in her (and our) life was humbling.

Honestly, that was my favorite part of the planning…being reminded of the wonderful people in our lives.

“What about Molly?” Madelyn asked

Would it be odd to invite dogs that we take care of at our kennel?


Molly has been spending time with us for years. She is our resident queen and clearly lets everyone know her social standing.

She comes 3-5 days a week for day care…and I would say, she (and her owner Ed) have become part of our family.

Raising 5 kids takes lots of different people/dogs to teach all they need to know to succeed in this life.

Dogs are excellent teachers and influences. Often better than human ones.

Unconditional love, respect, hope,work , peace, stability, patience….I could go on and on.

Molly is one of those dogs.

Madelyn had a few dog friends on our list.

I was pleased to see my beautiful (now married) daughter take a moment and pause to recognize who is important in her life.

Human or not.

As I expect now and in the future….the Reynolds kids will have dog friends on all of their wedding lists.

Who Needs Coffee…?!

People ask me what life is like out with the dogs….my answer…depends on the time of day! I have not been a morning person but I am now. I am confident a majority of our canine friends are also morning people. Energy is always high during the morning run, because our guests are well rested, bladders are full, and there is a pack of furry friends ready to start the day.

I forget sometimes that they are by nature… pack animals. They love to be with their own kind instinctively.

Instinct is key in our world. You have to accept, embrace, and understand each dogs specific breed instinct. But that big topic is for another day :0)

It is fun to watch our under-socialized guests be reminded they love to be together. Even if it takes a day or two.

Forget coffee! Just a morning with a bunch of happy dogs is all anyone really needs to start their day.
