And so she must have been because we started out the day with a short two mile walk by my river.
You might remember that My river has been in the flood stage for a couple of months but in the past two weeks it went down about 10 feet and for the first time this year.......My Vickie allowed me to swim in it....
IT WAS A WONDERFUL WALK and I forgive her for all her laziness...Yes I do.
The ground has turned into the desert that Utah is famous for with few flowers and many weeds but to My Vickies delight, even the weeds were beautiful.
And of course more Bee
And there were lots of flying insects, like butterflies (are they an insect?) and these guys.
And I met a wonderful new friend named Freckles. Get it.....Cause she has freckles on her nose.
She was shy at first but we became good friends.
At the Kennel we did a lot of Painting this last weekend. Green is the new color for Canine Country Club
www.caninecountryclub.biz Thank goodness the girls were working cause the boys were just playing. (No, not really, they did a good job)
Delilah and Althea came for the weekend. They are joined at the hip. (not really) they just do everything together......accept for playing with evil cat Allred. Delilah did that alone. She isn't too smart.
It was a lucky thing that she left with all her parts in tact......It was a close call one or two times, but she moved fast. Unfortunately, she is gone now, so who has to deal with The Devil now? mmmm I wonder.
One of my friend McKinley came to stay for a week. He has the coolest blue eyes.
The first two night McKinly stayed with us this week, he came out of his house and howled all Night long. I mean HOWLED.
From the house, it sounded like some forlorn wolf in the wilderness looking for its pack. ALL NIGHT LONG
My Vickie would get up and go out and take him back into his room, show him his nice comfy bed and ask him nicely to go to sleep.
Before she even got back to the house, he was out there a wailin again.
It was mournful, soulful and IMPOSSIBLE to sleep to. Something had to be done. I was losing sleep but more importantly My Vickie was not getting any sleep and she can't afford to not get sleep cause she gets really grumpy.
Grumpy means fewer walks, less me time....and all around unrest in the household.
So here is the agreement they made yesterday and it seems to be working really well
McKinley promised NOT to howl all night….IF….and only IF….he could sleep in the house with us.
Well, at least we all got some sleep last night…
I had to give up my bed for the big guy, but it was worth it because he has been tormenting the heck out of Allred , and forgive me all my kitty friends, but that in itself gives me much pleasure. Finally a guy who isn’t afraid of the Devil Cat…
Of course it won’t take but one swipe of the hideous claws that emrge from his body and poor McKinley will join the rest of us in “Fear and Caution” checking out behind each door way or corner before venturing into any part of the house.
Oh and now that the weather is good, we even have to be careful outside.
“The Devil has not boundaries……”.
But it is all ok cause my life is great...99 and 9/10ths of the time.
See you all soon
