Brittanys on Thursday

(and more contests!)

Yes, I know this is really Dogs on Thursday, but with so many Brittanys around, I had to take some liberties this week. Emma, Tara and Cooper recently had a visit from their cousins Ashley, Maggie and Honey. At one point, four of them were playing Merry-Go-Round around my sister. Of course, it had nothing to do with the fact that she was holding a jar of treats...
Try as I might, I could not get all six brits into the picture at one time. This is the best that I could do. (Notice the all-important jar of treats again.)

The senior brit of the group, Ashley, was content to lie in the shade with a nice cool drink.

What makes Ashley a Wonder Dog? Well, just a few short weeks ago she was in pretty bad shape. Apparently she had a blood clot in her spinal column which caused her back end to become paralyzed. I saw her the day after she came from home from her stay at the emergency vet, and I really didn't think she would survive, but she showed us all! Not only is she still alive, but she is also walking on her own! Her mom (who just happens to be a Physical Therapist - what luck!) and dad bought a custom-made cart for her, but this little old gal rarely uses it. She can get around on her own, and has even managed to catch a Robin in the backyard! Way to go, Ashley. But maybe next time you could just catch the Robin and let it go instead of killing it, huh?

With all of these Brittanys around, which dog to you think we will be cheering on in tonight's premier of the TV Show Greatest American Dog? Star, of course, and her human Bill! Go Star!!!

Also, a couple of my blogging buddies are holding contests. Click on over to PonyKnits and Nichole's Lapdog Creations blogs and enter!
