Heeheehee, and then there were EIGHT! Well, only for a few hours, lol.
Sheba (top middle) came for grooming this morning so it was an opportunity to show everyone that all the dogs can be well-behaved and obedient. I just point at the steps and tell each one to get up and find a spot and they do. Only one problem, to get them all to look at the camera at the same time
Ten pics or so later (ya, they basically stayed that whole time apart from a couple deciding they weren't sitting anymore, lol) and squealing all sorts of noises to get ears up and attention on me (thank goodness the neighbours on either side of me are at work
Five of the eight dogs are "seniors" so their hearing is very dulled. Whisper is 12 (the golden one in the middle of the middle row); Dusty (top left) and Holly (middle left) are 13; Sheba (middle top) is about 14, I think; and my Hunter (bottom right) is 14. Shimmer is 6 (top right); Molson is 5 (middle right); and Pipsqueak ('Squeak for short) is 4 and the one bottom row left.
Tomorrow, Dusty's littermate, Domino, and Checkers come for their grooming. Will try to get a pic but it's s'posed to rain. Domino is a tri-colour sheltie and has always been one of my favourites. She's a little pistol. 'Squeak is very like her.
