I'll stand over here until the dogs are gone.

Why, yes, all that fine photography was from me. If you want to learn how to cut off heads, take pictures of pinestraw instead of kids and overexpose the shot, just let me know and I can arrange a tutorial. ;) My only excuse is that I felt a little funny taking pics of other people's dogs, so I tried to do it quick and unobtrusively. Also, I had to run to catch up with them!

The third one from the top is an especially fine specimen- I managed to block out the dog while also cutting off BOTH boys heads.

It takes talent to be that bad!

It is hard to capture a wiggly, excited dog, and two more wiggly excited boys! You do a good job. I still say you have a dog in your future -- those boys love dogs!

Don't apologize--just say that it was artistic--you were giving the impression of randomness, haste and excitement....

Caroline would come over as long as the dogs were already there. Carter would wait by Abigail, Alex would be in the car asking to go home and Aaron would be trying to figure out if he really wanted to see the dogs or not....

As an experienced dog owner with children, you are doing well to stick with petting other people's dogs and not getting your own. Once you get your own, your children won't care one bit about dogs anymore and it will become one more thing to take care of, feed, walk, worry about, etc. (I am pretty sure you already know this. I just wanted to reiterate in case you were thinking of getting a dog). Don't get me started on the poop.

I was actually starting to waver on the 'no dog' stance, because they just love dogs SO much, but thankfully we had the opportunity to dog sit! It was just like you said- after the first day, they didn't want anything to do with the dog, and I was constantly having to do stuff for it! I really don't need anything else to clean up after!
