I made party hats for each of the birthday pets. Obviously they weren't really going to wear them, the hats were really just a party favor for the other families, but I did manage to get a picture of Flex balancing one on his head. He's a very treat motivated dog, and I used that to my advantage.
When my sister in law (Toby's owner) saw the cups she said, "Of course Barb would do this!"
Flex and his new Kong toy.
This was our 3rd of 4 nights of celebrating in a row. I didn't blog about Thursday, but we had two families over for dinner to celebrate the end of figure skating lessons. Friday was our report card buffet, and today the puppy party. Three down, one to go. Tomorrow we'll celebrate Ken's birthday (a couple of days early) with his parents.
I have a question for bloggers and non-bloggers. What is the etiquette for posting pictures of people on my blog? In this post I have my nephew's legs and the back of my niece's head. I did this without their parents' permission, but I don't think they can be identified, so it seems alright to me. Non-bloggers: How do you feel about you or your family's picture being posted on someone else's blog? Bloggers: Same question, plus, what are your parameters for posting people other than your own family on your blog? I've seen ward members, friends, and extended family on other people's blogs. Did they give permission first? Did they know the person who was taking their picture has a blog? I want advice!
