Our park target for the week is paying off great for me. Shame Ma’s project isn’t advancing as well.
She is possessed that she’ll work out how to get the plans drawn all my herself. She keeps hitting brick walls though! Today’s upside was that she got the third quote on the HVAC system so was chewing her fingers as to which one to pick! This called for fresh air!
So off we went once more to yet another of the towns parks. This one we’d never even heard of let alone been even though our family have lived here for ten years!
It was so worth the visit. A beautiful spot with two trails. Ironically located on Seldom Seen Road.
We took both trails and will let the pictures speak for themselves.
I found a great little hiding place that would be ideal for hunting down a bunny or two if herself would let me spend the night alone.
Definitely we’ll be going back We just got a first taste of what the fall colors might look like today! Herself also got her head cleared and made a decision on the HVAC so we’re on the way to both heating and cooling!
This morning I alerted Ma to the trespassers in our yard. I got rid of them pretty fast too!
She appreciated and took me on a park crawl.
We hit Adventure Park, the Village Green and Library Park in one walk. Made up for yesterday and the days not done yet! We snagged some nice weeds down by the railroad tracks. Anyone know what they are?
I suspected there may have been and alternative motive for her pampering when she put some poop in a bag and slung it in the car.
Indeed after a bit of freshening up next up she wheels me back into the car and off we went to the vets.
It was that time of year to pretend you are a pin cushion.
I endured stoically but man am I glad I’m declared a super healthy hero and am back home again in my own kitchen!
Hoping for some special treat to compensate for my suffering this evening! Seems I need to get a dental chew a day to keep my pearlies polished! Yummy Mummy!
On Ma’s Facebook memories a photo of a balloon popped up today. It had landed in our yard exactly one year ago. She thought at the time it was a message from heaven that my predecessor Dibley had sent. He’d passed the rainbow bridge earlier that week and Ma and Pa and the bro were feeling very blue.
Little did they know that I was on a truck taking a long road trip from Texas to take care of them.
It was Friday 13 September, 2019 and it wasn’t the most comfortable of journeys. I had to bunk with 25 other puppies but it was a lucky day for me. My pals and I felt happy that we’d been rescued by good people who were taking us to safety at The Canine Collective in Plain City Ohio.
The very next day after a short sleep at that safe and clean and happy CC kennel I found my forever family. More on that tomorrow!
For today let’s just say that sometimes you need to cross a few borders before you reach your final destination!
We had to paint again today to prevent a nervous breakdown.
The internet may have been restore but we’ve discovered part of the roof is off.
Our neighbors to the side found pieces of it in their garden yesterday.
The neighbors across the street captured the « touch down » on Monday evening. Now that we’re reconnected they were able to share with us today and we can almost see the roof being ripped off. Good to have if we do need to go through the insurance.
Painting is better than tearing your hair out I suppose so I help her stay calm as does copious quantities of bread with peanut butter and ginger jam!
I’m not sure she’s adding value to her rescues or giving them a better chance to be rehomed.
If it keeps her nerves steady I’ll just stick the snout out the window and breathe deeply.
After six long weeks of being out of commission our fridge freezer is back in the land of the living.
Seems this time we had a Freon leak! I’m so glad it’s working because herself has bought a bucket load of ice cream so I’ll me wrapping my chops around a drop or two of that later on.
Dad is delighted too because he can get a few ice cubes in his whiskey and of course give me some.
Herself was working up an appetite for the cool stuff by spending the afternoon painting a big picture frame in the sun.
She went to a class last night at the antique store to learn all about the Dixie Bell chalk paint products they sell. That way if customers ask what different things are for she’ll have at least a basic knowledge of the range.
Today she « transformed » a framed print bought some weeks ago. While she forgot to take a pic of the original frame the revived version looks good.
Puzzled though that those flowers don’t smell like mine on the patio!
