One last time (maybe) at One Last Cast BBQ
|BBQ Dave (kneeling) surrounded by humans and hounds Sunday at One Last Cast BBQ|
Our beloved barbecue stand on the grounds of Flamingo Road Nursery announced on Facebook earlier in the week that it was closing shop at the end of business Sunday.

Here's hoping to see you again in a couple of weeks, Dave.
We had a pretty good turnout of hounds and humans, considering the NFL playoffs probably kept a few people away. The weather was superb -- sunny skies and temperatures in the high 60s.
Most of the regulars turned up -- Mike and Andy; Anna and Blogger John with Diffy and Creepy; Maurice and Hermes; Jerry B. and Wendy; Jill with Rainey and Slash. Joy G. was a late arrival with David, Honey and Turtle. We saw some old friends we haven't seen in awhile, and we got to see some new faces as well.

The next scheduled FoG outing is a play date at Dog Dude Ranch in Miami, slated for 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Jan. 28.
FoG KENNEL UPDATES: Casey went out a few days ago to some old friends who now live in Georgia. The senior couple is in Coconut Creek helping a family member through surgery and plan to take Casey home later this week to a big fenced yard he can call home.
Apollo's home visit is officially over, and he's now a permanent Margate resident. Matt and Debbie and son Jake were at the Sunday gathering with hounds Shar Shar and Apollo, making his public debut as an official member of the family.
Fella, the last remaining guest at the FoG kennels, is going to Coral Gables on Monday morning for a home visit.
Also Monday, Michelle will pick up a female hound from the Florida Kennels in Hialeah -- so even if Fella stays in the Gables, the Sunrise kennels won't be empty. I plan to get there later in the day Monday to meet the new arrival. I'll pick up a photo or two and tell you more about her soon.
