    Okay so, the spring frolic for the Ferret Rescue Society was today, and we had a BLAST. Harley took home most of the first place ribbons, and our other four took home some ribbons, too! They also got to hang out in the play area, and Barrett got to see a few of his bros from the research facility.

    I also brought home a convection oven that I won in the silent auction (woo!), my print was auctioned for $90 (double woo!) and Jess and I brought home some new bedding and toys for our kids (boo to our wallets, woo for the furkids!)

    Okay PICS.

    In the play area... Barrett's in the black skull jacket, Renegade's in the blue harness.

    My print in the silent auction, wheeee

    FRSO stuff for sale.

    Barrett sees one of his facility brothers again! Bumsniffing commences.

    Then, I put Porom's ladybug costume on Barrett... he wasn't too impressed.
    [​IMG]

    And then, our boys won the contest! Yay!

    Rascal in the maze (no pics of Barrett in the maze because I forgot to hand off my camera, and Porom is deaf so no maze for her)
    [​IMG]

    Exiting the maze! Yay!
    [​IMG]

    Harley in the maze... she ran it in TEN SECONDS... and it was a big maze.
    [​IMG]

    Renegade went into the maze... and promptly came back out. DQ!

    Porom, running the game where they have to topple as many dinosaurs as they could in one minute. I let her do any of the games where following a sound wasn't a priority. :p

    Renegade's turn

    Rascal, who tried to be dainty and not knock any down... silly monkey.

    Barrett was so very sleepy after competing so much. <3 Poor little bear.
    [​IMG]

    Jess and I took all the ribbons for the toppling game. We rock.

    The frolic was tons of fun! So proud of them all, they did great, especially Harley <3 I was for sure not expecting her to do that well, considering I have only had her for just under 3 weeks.

    Thanks everyone! It was great, I cannot wait for the fall frolic in November.

    Oh, and because it's too late to edit, but I just realized this and it'll bug me until I change it...

    I meant BARRETT, not Porom. That might have gotten confusing!
