First we would like to thank Ms Bree from http://cowspotdog.blogspot.ca for creating this for all those who participated in Safety Week. Thanks so much!
Black and White Sunday: It is really funny to me that I had this huge desire to post a picture of Baggy, not knowing Sunday was black cat appreciation day. Perhaps the universe was sending me a message to help.
Mischief Monday - Bad Poetry Day: We do hope that with more exposures, Lee will learn to at least tolerate Maggie. If not, I fear she has lots of crate time in her future. We have been saving everyone else's bad poetry for this weekend and are really looking forward to reading it!
Tuesday - The Man's birthday: He says thank you to everyone for the nice birthday wishes. He had a great day off work. Today we are going to a third birthday celebration for him with friends. It is the birthday that never ends!
Wordless Wednesday - Super Phod: I do love this picture in that it does show off Phod's muscles that can be lost under his fur. Everyone wanted to know what he was flying after, so this is the picture snapped right before Phod's great leap:
And if you look very close in Phod's mouth you can see his Precious.
Thursday - I can be brave: We are proud of Hailey for slowly finding ways to be more comfortable in scary situations. She will hide in the closet or basement bathroom in storms or when there are fireworks (which in cottage country is almost every not raining night in the summer). She will settle in her crate when children have invaded, and she is willing to approach new and scary things. Part of the problem is we live so secluded now, she isn't faced with new things very often.
Jackie asked, why the road with the digger is her favourite. There are not many roads to actually walk down in our area. There is the main road with a few small roads leading to the lake are off. Some of these are private and visiting is not encouraged. We sort of only have 4 roads to walk on, and we always have to turn around and come back the way we came. The road with the digger is a side road that leads to the lake. A mountain is on the left and fields are on the right until you get almost to the lake when houses/cottages appear. There is something about the smells on this road that she loves (and Phod also enjoys). I am not sure if it is wildlife or other dogs (we see tracks of both). This street is our Tuesday/Thursday walk.
Friday - Grief: Thank you all for sharing your stories about grief. Grief is the price we pay for loving something else. It is a steep price to pay, but one I am willing to.
Our weekend plans are Man's next birthday party, and attending the CFL RedBlacks game tomorrow. We also hope to get to the golf course for some practice and the regular errands. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
