Saturday morning I got off the bed, went downstairs, peed on the bed that had been in front of the fire, and then went back to bed. I never even asked to go out. Man was not happy with me for not asking. I maintain I was sleepwalking because I would never go and pee on the blanket by the fire. (If the peeps try and tell you peeing on this is a habit if they don't pick it up, ignore them.)

Did you spot the jay in every picture (there are 2 in the second picture).

While I am a very talented dog, one of my greatest talents is being able to use my eyes and my focus to get the Lady to give me some of her food. It is like I am hypnotizing her. As many of my readers are celebrating Thanksgiving today, I thought this was the perfect time for the lesson.
Let me show you.
First, stare intently at whatever she is eating. This is easiest if you can be on the couch beside her, but can also work from the floor.

One day last week Callie came over for a lunch time playdate. The Man thought I might enjoy playing with her more if I was off leash. I did, but after a few minutes I decided to use the opportunity to explore the neighbours yard. The trail cam, which was pointed at the composter to see what was digging it up, caught the escape.
I only went over to the neighbour's garage (something I have never tried before but now that I have seen Callie come over, I know it is a thing). Man put me back on leash and I spent the rest of the playdate on leash.
The taste of freedom was totally worth it!

On Monday, surrounded by love, our Lady's parents dog Tendra, went peacefully to the bridge. She lived 12 years as the boss of the house. Her presence will be greatly missed. We will miss getting to play with her and getting dinner really early when she was around. Run free dear girl.

Yesterday we introduced the pup from next door. Those pictures were taken when the kids from next door were at school. Over the pandemic, the kids and I have become good friends. Tere is 10 year old J, 8 year old M, and my special boy, who is not pictured, almost 5 year old D. D and I are very good friends, but I love the girls too. Sometimes I see the girls at the bus stop in the morning and often they stop by on their walk home if we are out.
My girls, stopping to play on the way home
D loves me sooooo much that when his family was starting to look for a new dog, their 13 year old Diesel, who we never met as he did not like other dogs, unfortunately went to the bridge earlier this year. D told his parents he wanted a big orange dog like me! So while the rest of the family may have wanted a blue coloured dog, he is very excited that Callie is orange.
I am very lucky to have kids who love me. Hailey is doing ok with them too. She always has to bark when she first sees them, but the kids are use to it and aren't scared. Then she lets them pet her. She just doesn't love them like I do but she does like them.
We are lucky to have neighbourhood kids!

Let me tell you a story.
Last Saturday, we were out playing in the yard when we got talking to the neighbours (they were passing by because their almost 5 year old was running away from home again). They mentioned they had picked up a puppy that morning. We were unceremoniously dumbed back in the house so the peeps could go over and meet Callie. They were gone
The people quickly jumped into their car and were off to get groceries.
They came back to this.
Now, they say I should feel shame for getting into the garbage again (they still have no proof it was me). I think they should feel shame because both times the mystery trash bandit has stopped by, what he can reach is their takeout garbage. They are adding to climate change and not taking their health as seriously as they should.
|I have no idea what happened|
We know people had suggested a can under the sink. The problem with that is mice. Next time they have to leave us, the garbage is going to be out out of reach.

Last week, I had a terrible, horrible day, that I think was uncalled for. Apparently I was due for a check up in July but because of the pandemic I could only go now.
I knew as soon as Lady took me to the garage alone and told me I was to get in the car, no good would come of this. I tried to hide but Lady made me get out and try again.
I got my revenge by throwing up in the car. When we arrived I knew exactly where I was and I gave Lady the stink eye.

Thanks to dearest Rosy for hosting Nature Friday. When Lady was uploading our Halloween pictures from her much neglected actual camera, she came across these pictures of the bucks she had taken in September. This is in our yard beside the house in our second acre. Enjoy!

This is one of the times of year where Hailey has the most energy and wants to play. Normally she is very reserved and doesn't respond well to Phod's play initiations. However, the other night she started it. I was able to catch a few pictures on my iPad. I am sure if asked she would deny enjoying this.

Looking at the Halloween pictures and the outtakes from the recent fall photos, it is clear that one of the two is more cooperative.
First we have the Man is standing to the side with the treats so we can't look at the camera.
