#NQC2014 Pigeon Forge Update

Hey neighbors!

Well, we left Sunday morning and arrived here in Pigeon Forge yesterday afternoon.  We had just enough time to grab a bite to eat at Tony Gore's BBQ.  It was super!  After checking in we headed to the National Quartet Convention.  We arrived in time for the ribbon cutting ceremony.  See the picture below, provided by the National Quartet Convention.  The singing was super last night.  My four daughters went to the devotional time this morning, that was lead by Greater Vision.


Here are a couple of pictures from last night, courtesy of the National Quartet Convention.

Triumphant Quartet!  One of our favorite groups, not to mention we consider them friends.

The Perrys! Great to see both Tracy and Libby!
While they were there, my husband and I had a few errands to run.  While out and about I managed to snap a few pictures of the Smoky Mountain foothills.  Look at these pictures.







We all met for lunch at Western Sizzlin' Wood Grill Buffet.  This has to be the largest buffet I have ever seen.  They have two small separate rooms for the salad bar and desserts.  The hot bar runs the entire length of the main building.  The price is $10.99 for adults, but we had a coupon for $1 off each person.  You would not believe the amount of food they had.

The hot bar seems to go forever.

Ham, Roast Beef....

Dessert Room!


Look at the length of the hot bar!


NQC again tonight.  Tomorrow we will be visiting the Aquarium and a few other sites in Gatlinburg. I will try to keep you posted this week as to what we are doing.  We are of course taking a break from our regular posting.  Also if you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you will see some extra photos and information.

Thanks for stopping in!  See you soon!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
