OUR DAY JUST KIND OF WENT TO THE DOGS
THAT GUINNESS IS REALLY GETTING TO BE A BIG BOY
Happy to say about 90% of the aches & pains in my legs from Friday were gone when I woke up this morning. Must be little magic fairies that sometimes come in the night & make things right with their healing powers & sprinkles of magic dust.
TWO BLACK DOGGIES IN OUR NEW CAMPFIRE PIT THIS AFTERNOON
Looked like rain this morning so Pheebs & had ourselves busy loading the utility trailer with old rotten stumps, yard waste, & tree limbs. Only minutes after returning from the Park's yard waste recycle area it began raining, forcing us indoors again. Had no intentions of going anywhere until I happened to look a flyer from the newly opened Staples store in Goderich. They had a limited number of 64GB Flash Drives on sale today so Pheebs & I headed off for Goderich toot sweet. Rained all the way there & all the way back but we did get our Flash Drive for $19.95. Nice new store located in Goderich's east end. And how great it is not having to go through one single traffic light to access Staples, Walmart, Canadian Tire, Pet Value, Shell Gas Bar, Tim Hortons, Zehrs Supermarket & the Dollar Store. I better include Harveys, the Haircutters & Pharma Plus in that line up too:))
THESE TWO WILD CHARACTERS CARRIED ON LIKE THIS FOR A LONG TIME
More clearing of foliage in the backyard as I worked on cleaning up & downsizing another flower bed. More tree branches to be trimmed & more pea gravel moved around. All work stopped when Kelly arrived home from work though…..with Guinness:)) Readers will remember Guinness & Stella from our previous dog sitting week-ends. Stella was off to Toronto today with her Mom & it was decided Guinness would have a sleep over with Pheebs at our house. I like when that happens:))
A COUPLE OF BEST PALS TAKING A MUCH NEEDED BREAK
Didn’t take but a few minutes for Pheebs & Guinness to have all my evenly raked pea gravel scattered asunder as they raced around the yard at hundreds of miles an hour. These two guys are just the biggest Pals with the biggest loads of boundless energy. It is just a joy to watch their antics as they jump, role, & cajole. Guinness is bigger & heavier than Pheebs now but no matter, as first one chases the other & then vice versa. Pheebs gives as good as she gets. I just love watching dogs having so much fun. And, I love to get down on the floor & kibbitz with them as well. They just have a habit of bringing out the old playful dog in me.
GUINNESS IS ONLY 7 MONTHS OLD & ALREADY HE IS HUGE
The Gals over at THE GOOD LUCK DUCK are in Kanab Utah at the moment doing something I have thought about many times but have never done. They are volunteering & helping out at an animal shelter called BEST FRIENDS. I think people who help out at these places are to be commended. It takes a strong resolve & courage to put oneself in an emotional setting like that. At least for me it would. I am basically an unemotional guy when it comes to a lot of things but where animals are concerned I come apart at the seams & turn into a big ball of mush. Maybe I would be just fine working with animals, or, maybe not. Suppose I will never know unless I try sometime...........
KELLY SPENDS TIME WITH GUINNESS OVER AT DEER PARK LODGE & THEY ARE BIG PALS
And, a heart stopping moment over at DESERT DIVA & CALI as little Cali is struck by a passing flatbed trailer being towed by a truck. This is every pet owners worst nightmare & I can only imagine the absolute horror of seeing one's best Pal being struck down. In Cheryl's words, "I saw her role and come out the other side". Check out Cheryl's post for what happened next............
TIME TO SLOW DOWN FOR A FEW SNUZZLES BEFORE THEY GET BACK TO RIPPING UP THE YARD AGAIN
And, I still question the 'real motive' behind an individual's reasoning to continually read a blog with no other purpose than to continuously criticize, find fault, & cast aspersions.
PHEEBS FINALLY TIRED OF ALL THE FROLICKING & SOUGHT REFUGE IN OUR NEW CAMPFIRE PIT…LUCKILY, WE HAD NOT YET HAD A FIRE IN IT
AWWW COME ON PHEEBS, GET OUT OF THE FIRE PIT, IT’S MY TURN TO GET IN NOW
NOPE, I’M NOT GETTIN OUT……………………….:))
