White Dog and I started doing some prep work for this Sunday's baby shower. White Dog is hosting the shower for Daisy's and Poppy's family who are expecting their first baby (a boy) and has invited all the dogs and humans from Agility Class. First, we wrapped presents and tied them in blue. White Dog has chosen to give a baby sized stuffy of a blue dog and a matching boardbook as a gift because she wants the baby to grow up loving dogs and reading! Steve and I added a few items to the basket. We decided the soon-to-be big sisters also needed a gift so Daisy will get a Starbark coffee mug stuffie (because she and her dad like to go for coffee together) and Poppy gets a Flamingo Hawaiian shirt to wear on the day the baby comes home (Poppy loves clothes!). White Dog made up party games like the Great Squirrel Hunt which is like a scavenger hunt and Save the Baby! an agility race to rescue the "baby" (White Dog's stuffie, Curly has volunteered to wear a diaper for this) and bring him home in the shortest time. We emailed everyone to remind them what "dish" they have promised to bring. Now we think we are pretty much ready until the day itself, so White Dog takes one final sniff over all and then retires for a nap.
