It's Terrier Time!

It's almost 4:00 pm on Monday afternoon. The golf course at the country club nearby is closed for maintenance and that means... it's TERRIER TIME!!!

Back in the bike basket I go and we're off to the 9th tee box to meet my Island doggie friends.

Here's Honey, our hostess. She had on her party bandana and she barks alot to make sure everyone's having a great time. I brought along a tennis ball and she liked to chase me as I chased the ball...
And this cute little Border Terrier is Maggie. Isn't she adorable? Border Terriers really do look like otters, don't they? She did an excellent job posing for the camera. (Once we told them that I had my own bloggie, they all wanted to be on it!)

I'm taking a break while a couple more doggies arrive. These two Bichons are very friendly - we've met at Terrier Time before but I forgot their names!

The black dog looks so much like my buddy Bear, I ran right up to her before I realized "he" was actually a slightly smaller "she." That's Muffie. And the sparkling white Westie gal is Savannah. They were scoring snacks from Muffie's Dad.

Muffie was jumping straight up in the air but Mommy could never capture it on film. Maggie just laughed at her.
Isn't Muffie a pretty girl? She could be Bear's little sister!

Here's the smiling Bichon whose name I've forgotten! Yikes!

And here's Savannah, posing for the camera. Mommy and I went for a big long walk on the beach this morning and we met another little Westie girl named Daisy who is a friend of Savannah's! Now, granted, we're on an Island, but still - it's 15 miles long!

Ah Honey, try as you might, you can't catch me! Or get to the ball before I do!

There were some rumbles of thunder, so Terrier Time ended early. But first, Honey wanted to try out my new bike basket. She wasn't so sure of it at first. 

But then her Mom took her for a ride down the street and she just loved it too! Looks like we're going to have lots of biking doggies on the Island before too long!

Honey insists on a bike liner that matches her fancy bandana! No problem!

P.S. We did get home before the thunderstorm hit. There was one incredibly LOUD clap of thunder that made both me and Mommy jump! So I sat her lap for the next hour to calm her down. After the storm passed, there was a rainbow that stretched all the way across the Island and a gorgeous fireball of a sunset. No photos...of course!

Watch out for the Bison Freeze doggies. Two of them ganged up on me at playgroup once and freaked me out totally.

Otherwise, enjoy!

Hi Petey
Thanks for showing more of your wonderful basket, and also for including all those details about when commenting on my blog. I live in hope....
Terrier time sound great fun. I have a border terrier neighbour called Bonnie and I am going to tell her she looks like an otter. I wonder how she will react?
Cheers! H.

What a good assortment of little dogs! I has met a few border terriers, and they does make good playmates, I never seed an otter though so I casnot tell that. You all looked very clean and well groomed for terriers, shouldn't you have been getting all muddy and stuff?

I think the golf course should close everyday for terrier time. I sure hope you didn't stain a little when you heard that thunder, wouldn't want to mess up your new basket!
