Katrina, with hubby Chan and kids Ellen and Robert lost their Jazzee daughter (also a Shae sister) Jarrah in November last year and Katrina flew in from San Diego to pick up her puppy on Friday. We did manage to get a full afternoon of wine tasting in, us girls, coming up in another post. It was a Skype session with the family back home on puppy choosing day, and in the end, it was Sougan/Freya (Ellen's chosen name) that got the bath and the plane ride on Saturday.
|Katrina gets a quick wardrobe change while big sister Sybil, momma Cricket and daddy Hoke watch, and Great uncle Ho Dog and Great-great Auntie Shae studiously ignore everyone|
|Great uncle Ho Dog, Great-great Auntie Shae, big sis Sybil, momma Cricket (again, seemingly aware that yet another child is going away) and daddy Hoke (secretly glad)|
|Now daddy Hoke seems to be saying 'Thank GOD!'. He's something of a deadbeat dad, that guy|
|Dale shows Sougan/Freya how to surf via iPad. These guys are pretty darn smart, so she'll probably pick it up in no time, and like Dale and I, she'll hate Safari with a passion|
