Tired Pups (And Humans)

We had a terrific time yesterday at WinterFest Smoky Style and worked really hard, but we are some very tired pups (and humans).

Take me home, Hu-Dad.

Take me home, Hu-Dad.

We had a blast letting all of the humans pet us and scratch our ears and rub our bellies. Yes, we make such sacrifices we make to entertain humans, but we are a working breed.

What a long day.

What a long day.

By the end of the day, we were tired and went home to a big dinner and an early bedtime. Oh, and probably naps all day long on Sunday!

It is hard being so cute.

    How wonderful about the success of this year’s Hearts for the Herd, and good job being good ambassadors for your working breed, guys!

    I (the human) went to a doggy event today too – but my tiredness means I will post about it a little later! First, some snoozes…
