Druid is not a cold weather dog, in fact he hates it. Will absolutely refuse to go outside until he’s about to burst – so I made him a coat. I think he is happy now.
Today was full of excitement- must be the full moon- but I’m only going to tell you one story that happened.
My oldest is now living with us again and had a short work schedule so I allowed one of her dogs to stay home with my two. Percy, the tall -toothless- white borzoi is a good boy for the most part but I have had problems with him running into the highway or off to the DWR property behind our neighbors house so when I heard horns blaring this morning I panic. I was afraid one of the dogs was in the road but I found all three dogs laying in the living room.
I relaxed and returned to making my breakfast. Toasted banana bread with butter. I had just replaced the butter when I heard more honking and braking tires. This was not good. I noticed that my neighbor’s cow from across the street had gotten free and was playing frogger with the morning traffic. I dropped everything and rushed out to take care of it- which was fairly easier than we thought it would be.
When I returned into the house I was greeted by an unexpected sight. Druid was laying in the living room licking the carpet crazily, Hickory was sniffing around, and Percy was standing in the kitchen looking guilty. Instantly I thought I had lost my breakfast to the three opportunist but the bread was still sitting on the counter. What was missing? The stick of butter – and when I tried to replace it – the culprit stepped forward and drooled for more!
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised- his mother liked to do the same thing. (aka- my oldest daughter)
I’m laying on the floor and my dogs are licking my salty exposed skin as I try to rest from being outside working in the heat.
My Mind:*singing* When you’re down and low, lower than the floor, and you feel like you ain’t got a chance …. screw you peter panda.
“All time low” blasting from my truck as I drive home, windows rolled down and the with the dogs in the back. The farmers are watering their crops and I can see that it’s going to hit the road. I slow down so the dogs get wet and laugh hysterically.
Let me introduce you to the
troublesome trio NOW FOUR – Hickory, Druid, Perci & Pony!
SETUP: I’ve just come back from feeding and breaking waters open at the barn. I’m cold and want to cuddle with my dogs.
ME: Druid you smell like corn chips!
MY MIND: Who had the bright idea to make food, that tastes what a dog smell like?
ME: Give a whole new meaning to the phrase Comfort Food.
