River Dogs

What an awesome trip to the hill country! Beautiful, secluded cabins right on the Frio River, surrounded by gorgeous country side. The stars in the night sky were so incredible! All the dogs and people had soooo much fun, and we all can't wait to go back again!
The weather was absolutely ideal, frosty in the mornings warming to crisp afternoons with sunny sky's. We spent the days hiking in the woods and along the river, both as a group and off by ourselves. Each evening we had movie night, with everyone curled up on the couches and dogs snuggled up. And at night we opened the blinds and watched the incredible starry sky while we fell asleep. The night sky never looks like that around here!

All of the dogs at least dipped their toes in the river, and they all managed to snatch some yummy deer poop. Holly was the only one that actually fell into the river, but she fell in butt first and only got her backside wet. Meg, my parents younger Brittany was tired enough in the evenings to actually settle down and behave herself while we watched movies. Bobbie, my parents older Brittany acted half her age and taught all the other dogs about proper vacation protocol. Holly and Mikey just reveled in every second! All the dogs had such a great time I'm sure they can't understand why we came back home to our regular lives with hustle and bustle and the daily grind.
We're all safely back home, tired and grateful that we were able to take such a great trip together.

We all took dozens of great pictures, and it's so hard to pick and choose, but here are some of my favorites.

Holly and Mikey say 'Hi' and 'We're official river dogs now!'
