Morning Rituals with Dog Cat Dog

I thought I would share my morning ritual. First let me fill you in on the characters. There is our dog Abbey, and her sister Champ. (Champagne Bubbles) named by her owner not us. We dog sit her a lot as her owner frequently travels. Then, there is our newest addition, Charlie. He is the homeless cat that was taken in and then passed from home to home. He hissed at us for the first few weeks and hid under the bed for a very long time. 
So fast forward... here they are today! Left to right; Champ, Charlie, and Abbey.
All waiting to get their morning treat with my first cup of Joe.
I have trained them all to sit and the dogs have to wait while Charlie stands on his hind legs to reach up for his treat. Then the dogs get their treat. I love these crazy fur shedding animals.
PS: I have to vacuum everyday. And it's not because of the two dogs. Darn Charles.

Pasadena Wedding at the Ambassador Mansions and Gardens

Last night I was a guest at a wedding at the Ambassador Mansions and Gardens in Pasadena. It was an amazing location for a wedding. 
I struggled with whether to take my camera or not. Crazy but I had to weigh in the heat, my 4 inch heals, and on grass. I decided to haul just the minimal camera lens and flash. ((I really wanted to take my grande zoom but didn't want to take anything away from the hired photogs.))
My Date!
(Thank you again for driving! Could not even imagine driving my car without air conditioning!)

First Dance

So there was your glimpse of the area. Be sure to check out the website for the Ambassador. You'll get to see the mansion itself. Sad to say I didn't go around taking a lot of photos. They had a great crew and many guests with cameras. Oh, and my 'date' said she kept loosing me to photo opts!
All in all, it was a very fun party. Love the family. Glad I was a part of it.
