This Is More Like It

This morning I sent the dogs outside and went to get their breakfast ready. When I glanced at the thermometer outside the garage window, it read 31 degrees.
 This is exactly what my dogs have been waiting for, a cool sunny day to play outside. Bailey treated Monkey to a trip outside.

 I usually grab Monkey at the door and put him in a safe place to wait for Bailey. When we come back in she immediately checks for Monkey. Today I decided to let her take her friend out to play.

 We had some chases and run arounds. There was some ball throwing, but mainly the dogs found things to amuse themselves and relaxed in the yard with us.

 Bailey may have been thinking she could find something more interesting to do if she'd left Monkey inside.

 Morgan found a tennis ball to peel. She can accomplish it in just a few minutes. We don't have many tennis balls left due to her peeling expertise.

 Finally, Bailey found a good spot to settle in with Monkey. From here she could watch the entire yard. She's very devoted to her little friend.

It's certainly nice to be able to spend time outside without the extreme heat. Everybody seems relaxed and happy today.

We are loving the cool mornings and nights. And the glorious sunshine all day. If only it would last, says Mom.

Happy Halloween weekend.

It was so windy here today, we had to forego getting Halloween pictures - maybe tomorrow Gary will help me.

So glad the dogs can get outside and run around! It's heating up here and we're back to the 6 AM and evening walks.

XXXOOO Daisy, kendra & Bella

Sweet post. Mugsy was a talented tennis ball peeler as well. Gretchen can de-stuff a toy almost as quickly as he could, but she doesn't care to peel felt off tennis balls.

My dogs get so rambunctious when it cools off. Amazing how Bailey remembers monkey being lost - appears she won't let him out of her sight now. Smart girl. g

We've already started the rainy season here, so enjoy those cool, sunny days!

Now, if you could put Morgan's peeling expertise to use with oranges, you could make a great fruit salad with a lot less effort!

Happy Howl-o-ween weekend, and enjoy your sunshine!
