Trouble On A Tuesday - Near Misses
It is that time of year, where the mornings are getting pretty darn dark again, and there is an increase in the wildlife around our house.
Recently, at about 5 am (it was much darker than our recreation), we were heading out for our morning walk. Lady was dolled up in her safety vest and headlamp. We had just stepped out the front porch when we both started barking. Lady immediately held us in place and did a scan to see a little black and white butt not 4 feet from us scarring away. She said that is one way to get the heart going.
A few days later, near the mailbox, we were about 6 feet away when what we call the bad black and white kitty scurried into the ditch. We took the long way around where it had been. Almost every morning we have smelt a skunk on our road. Callie's Dad (who is also up bright and early) said he has seen many around.
We are all just hoping we don't get skunked!
Lee and Phod who so far only smell like dog!

Mischief Monday - Not Miss Manners - by Lee
Lady and Man say they are embarrassed by my recent behaviour. I think I am justified.
|The face of an innocent angel|
So Callie's human grandpa, has a Weimaraner named Charlotte. (Long, long time readers may remember his Weimaraner Ghost, who was our friend). Anyway, one time when Charlotte was new, she sort of came running towards me barking so I have decided I hate Charlotte.
Usually when Charlotte is visiting, Lady and Man only take me out on leash, because they know I want to fight her. However, on Saturday, Lady didn't know Charlotte was around and took me out off leash.
I was having a good roll in the grass while Phod was off in the bush taking care of business when suddenly:
This is when Lady heard Charlotte bark and started frantically calling me. I did not listen. I charged ahead.

Nature Friday FFF- How Does The Garden Go?
Thanks Rosy for hosting this event so Lady can go on and on about boring things.
For those, who are about as excited about Lady's garden as we are, here is a dose of Phod in his favourite place!
Now to the garden. Lady's zucchini plant has given her 4 zucchinis so far. Here is a picture of one. She loves they are not perfect!
Now, while Lady is thrilled to have grown something she can eat as 2022 goal, she is just as thrilled that her sunflowers started to open! She loves the flowers and all the bees!
And nature is giving us asters too!
Happy last weekend in August!

Thankful Thursday - Celebrating Man!
The Man had a great birthday. He thanks you all for the warm wishes!
Man took the day off and took himself for breakfast and to the movies. Before dinner, our BFF Dylan came over for cake.

Isn't the cartoon perfect? Isn't it perfect that we managed to star in the Man's day?
We are thankful to have such great neighbours.

Trouble On A Tuesday - Check Up Time
It was an overcast Tuesday and we were just minding our own business when the Mand and Lady said it was time to go to the car to the V-E-T.
Reluctantly we got in the car and drove the hour to the clinic (yes there are clinics closer, but none have our friend and vet Woody. When he retires, we are moving to a closer clinic).
Phod showed his displeasure by throwing up.
On the way to the room they stopped to weigh us. We have both put on a little weight. Hailey is 22 kg or 48.5 lbs and Phod is 37 kg or 81.5 lbs.
Once in the exam room we sniffed around a bit. We passed a cat on the way in and Phod just sniffed it, Lee didn't notice.
We were both cooperative with the exam, even though we were very, very nervous.
For our ages, which Woody couldn't believe, he thought Lee was 9 and not almost 13, we are both in great shape.

Mischief Monday - Other Dogs
This was a week where other dogs and our people win the mischief
First, last Monday, Dylan and Callie came over for dinner.
Callie not only played with Precious, but after she left, Lady realized she had pooped in the bedroom.

Nature Friday - Happy Birthday Man!
We would like to wish our Man, the person who feeds us and prevents Lady from becoming a dog and cat hoarder, a very happy birthday. We love you!
In honour of Man's birthday, we thought we would share some fun squirrel pictures. You will see we have red, grey and black squirrels as regulars at our feeder.
Hope you enjoyed some of Lady's favourite distractions! Thanks Rosy for hosting this hop!
