Dogs and Trains

Over the weekend, we visited my Grandpa's house for his birthday. My Grandpa and my Dad are both really into trains. We enjoyed playing with our train set on his big outdoor track in the backyard. And yes, there were dogs too.

We won this Snoopy Railways G-Gauge train from Lionel Trains after hearing about their contest from Beagles and Bargains. My dad said he wanted to take the train to Grandpa's house on Sunday so we could run it on his big track. It's definitely MUCH bigger than the small circle of track that came with the train, and my daughter loved playing with it.

After a while, she got tired of playing with the train and we went to play with the dogs instead. My Grandpa's dog, Bear, who is a Shetland Sheepdog enjoyed taste-testing some treats with us from One Dog Organic Bakery. (More on those later though.) He is so much more polite about taking treats than Shiner is.

One of the neighbors also brought their adorable Miniature Schnauzer puppy over for a few minutes. I cannot remember her name, unfortunately, but she was a pistol! She had so much energy and my youngest daughter just loved her. She may have been the life of the pawty!

We hope you have a wonderful and fun-filled Wednesday!
