Do you remember the shower tower? Rob built it last summer for the dogs . We hang a hose over the top and they go inside and play in the water. It's a very popular structure.
Several of them enjoy lying in the shade cast by the tower to play with their toys or to enjoy a snack.
This weekend Rob started dismantling the tower. We were all disappointed, but there was a good reason. The tower was built close to the edge of the hill and we're having an erosion problem. We were starting to worry that the tower might not remain stable.
The tower is being rebuilt on the other side of the yard where it'll be safer. The dogs will be able to enjoy it again in the hot weather.
Saturday was a bright sunny day, but quite windy. Rob and I have both been suffering with allergies for the last couple weeks and here are some of the reasons why.
The flowering trees and shrubs have been gorgeous this year. They've produced more blooms than we've ever seen, but along with the beauty comes pollen, lots of pollen.
The dogs are suffering, too. Fudge, Sky, Bailey and Tess all have 'allergy eyes'. Their eyes are red and watery.
I've been handing out Benedryl to three of them and Sky, who seems to have the reddest eyes is taking Chlortrimeton.
This is my Mother's Day present from my furkids. Rob picked it out and planted it in a pot for the porch.
I love the big pink flowers and so will the hummingbird.
This little guy was sunning himself on the bricks. I was surprised at how close he let me get to him. He'd better watch out because Morgan is on the lookout for lizards. She swallows them alive. Yuck!!!
