After a long work week, Dottie was about to have a very busy weekend. We went on some epic walks, about thirty minutes is the max we'll do, and boy is she tired afterward. She lays on cool stoops along the walk, being such a black little dog means you absorb lots of heat.

Friend snuggles

Sunday we went on a nice long early morning walk around the neighborhood and it was followed by serious brother/sister snuggle naps.

Then we went to our friend's house for a puppy adventure. Greg and Nicole bought my Pinto, and also ended up getting Dottie's littermate brother, Marco. YAY! The two generation of fine Bostons got to play for about three hours, which completely wiped em out. YAY!

YIKES! Dottie says NO!

Good lord it was hilarious. The doggies are still sort of worn out from it.
Somehow, in the mix, I guess Dottie managed to sit on some sort of bee/spider/bug because she developed a HUGE bugbite that night. We went to the vet to check it out and everything seems to be okay, but for a five pound puppy, its a huge welt.

Today it is smaller, and it still seems to not hurt her or bother her, but I'm sure its uncomfortable. Hopefully it will drastically go away this week. If not we'll be back at the vet for a checkout.
Poor lady.

In other good news, Dottie and Egon are totally past their weird standoffish ness, and are getting better at being unafraid cuddlers. Its excellent.
Hopefully this work week will fly by, we have a lot of Winnebago stuff to tackle and this weekend was a wash as far as that went. Ah well.
