Charlie meets his littermate, Sarah!

So this morning me, Charlie and Buttercup went to Point Pleasant Park to meet up with some great dane owners who were going there for a great dane meetup - they were supposed to be meeting there for 10am - but at 10am there were no great danes to be seen, and Charlie and Buttercup were barking at everyone - as they LOVE to do when they first get to the park, and they had pissed off a couple of people - so I knew it was time to move on, so we did - sans any great danes. And guess what - we met up with one of Charlie's litter mates and her owner!
I first met Sarah last year when she was at the Dartmouth SPCA - I had noticed her on the Animal Control website so I went and visited her once she'd made it over to the SPCA, and was very happy when she got adopted.
I saw her again in the summer when I ran into her and her new owner at Point Pleasant Park - but today was the first time that she and Charlie actually met - so it was so neat that she and Charlie got to snift butts after 11 years - and for the first couple of seconds it was really intense - like as if they knew each other - I wonder if Charlie thought it was his other sister Leonard for a moment, because everyone in their litter of 11 looks a lot alike, but Sarah is definitely a carbon copy. When I got home and looked at the pictures I took I was heartbroken though - there was something on the lens of my camera - what a drag! We'll have to meet up - I'd like to have a family reunion of all the littermates that I know of - now THAT would be neat!
Later today me and Daisy went for a one on one walk since Charlie and Buttercup had gotten to go on such a fabulous outing this morning

She had a super time and didn't even seem to notice that the other dogs weren't with us. It's awful to say, but since she's the youngest dog - at nine years old - there may come a time when she's the only dog in the house - so this might become a normal thing.
My camera today was just not working - at the park this morning it had goobers on the lens, and then this afternoon it was photographing Daisy as one black blob in the middle of the photo - so all my pictures turned out really shitty - these are the best I could with photoshopping unfortunately.
And this is a long shot of Long Lake in the distance.
