{29nov2010: We Are Family...}

Get up everybody and sing!
A couple weekends ago we had a mini family reunion.  It was nothing like the first birthday family reunion, but a reunion nonetheless.
One of Darwin's sister's, Bella, owner contacted me and said they were planning to go to Marymoor the next Sunday and to see if we were going to be there and wanted to meet up.  I quickly emailed Kristie, Boo's mom, to see if she wanted to meet up too.
Darwin was anxious to get to the park that morning (she seems to know when it's Sunday, and that it's her day to go see her friends at the park) so we headed out early.  When we got there she quickly made a new friend with a cute Newfie.

After a few rounds of chase and bitey face we headed off to find people.  In no time we found Boo Radley and his fish (which held up well in a game of tug).

Of course Darwin couldn't stop till she had possession of the fish.

We met up with some of the other Danes while we waited for Bella to arrive.

And Boo had a great time playing with Sebastian the white Dane in the picture above.
Soon Bella showed up and we had a mini reunion!
{You look like Darwin, but you're not Darwin}
{No silly, I'm your other sister Bella!}

Bella and Darwin look almost identical, they both have Atlas' small ears, but Bella has Misty's eyes.  Bella also is now sporting a shorter tail as she got an infection in it and it was making her sick, so they had to amputate a little more than half of it.

It was nice to see some of the family back together and hopefully we can plan another full reunion down the line.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog! I am kind of embarrassed to admit this, but it shocked me when I saw your comment. Because I've been following your blog for a long time now. I just never commented... :-) I found you through Honey's blog a while ago and I LOVED your blog name! I initially wanted a Great Dane, and I always planned on having the registered name be "origin of the species - Darwin" or something like that. We ended up with a mutt but of course we love him to pieces! Someday I would absolutely love to own a Dane though. I love reading about Darwin, she is so gorgeous!
