Here it is Friday already. As usual I didn't get to half the things I had planned to do this week. The days just fly by. Here is a wrap up of what did get accomplished.
First I had a report today from All Creatures on the little dog that was hit by a car. On Wednesday they were hopeful. She was able to move her head a little, but on Thursday she had a set back and the owner, with the advice of Dr B decided to have her put down. Her injuries were just too great. She had internal injuries, including the one to her spine and a pretty bad cut on her leg. She was a five year old Jack Russel and the impact was too much for her little body. Her companion has not been located yet.
This is a cross stitch pillow I designed. I saw a similar design in a magazine and so I pulled out the graph paper and started drawing. It was fun to design and even more fun to stitch. I backed it with a tiny black and white print.
When we moved here ten years ago the back trellis was covered with Clematis. I think there were four different varieties. Some of the plants are still going, though they aren't producing as many or as large flowers as they used to. I think next year we may dig them up and replace them with some strong new plants. Still they are pretty right now.
If you're wondering what the dogs are up to today, here they are.
Sky was a bad boy and brought this inside toy out with him. He likes to try to sneak things past me at the door. There's usually so much confusion going through the door that he stands a pretty good chance of smuggling something past me.
Lola saw what he had and took it away from him. I has to grab it from her and put it back inside. You can see some of the stuffing on the ground. She would have destroyed it or hidden it.
Rob got a chance between storms to cut the grass. Because it was wet, we have clumps of grass all over the place. The dogs love to roll in the clumps of wet grass. Here's Tess enjoying one of her favorite things.
Noah saw what Tess was doing and went over to check it out.
Oh boy, grass clumps. What fun.
I don't know why, but this is pure joy for these dogs.
As you can imagine, they wind up smelling like wet grass and looking sort of greenish and grassy.
Bailey thinks she looks fine with bits of grass all over her face.
We wish you all a warm, sunny, 'roll in the grass' weekend.
