Our favorite tree in the whole world is one particular Pussy Willow Tree that My Vickie started from a branch taken from her Sister Wendy's pussy willow tree the year she died. It is the tree that tells us when spring is coming. It whispers in the wind above our heads as we make our way through the kennels, it gives sweet nectar to the bees, it changes color with each breath of the breezes the tickle its little bud and velvet flower. It's perfect softness against a blue sky Welcomes The Beginning of all other beauties of The coming Season.
With it, this year, we meet a new member of our extended family and friends, Rudy. With it comes the days of playing outside, sleeping in the beams of the sun rays that break through under our huge walnut tree.
All good things come with the Spring Time
Well, not all good things......Like, it was James Dean 's Birthday last Thursday, but he was not feeling well, so we had to put off his Birthday Party until Next Week. Basset hounds are really sad looking when they are sick. Actually, Bassetts kinda look sad all the time.....Anyway, we are hoping James Dean is feeling better this week.
I keep trying to tell Zoey that I have a girlfriend, but she is always trying to sneak in a kiss here and there. But don't worry Charlotte.....I am true to you.
I know I already told you but it is worth repeating cause My Buddy Murphy passed his Therapy Dog test last week. Yeah. Won't he be wonderful for the patients....?
So FINALLY I got to go out on a walk with my buddies Goose, Murphy and Annie. It was so great. My Vickie made me stay on lead for almost all of the walk and that was a bit of a bummer, but at least I got out and got some fresh air and exercise.
While we were walking, we passed a lot of people out enjoying the springlike weather on their bikes. I was walking way over along the river when a group of folks went riding by and I heard someone call "Bert" "I see Bert". I ran over to see who it was and it turned out to be one of the kids from a school I had gone to a few weeks ago to teach about Wilderness Safety. It is fun to be recognized.
On the next day, we went to one of our favorite haunts and met up with a ton of my friends. I just had to put in a picture of Murphy cause My Vickie thinks he is the coolest looking dog in the world cause he looks different with every step he takes.
And YES.....there was WATER.....I didn't get to be in it a lot but I finally did get to swim a little. Oh how I have missed my water.
So if your not too board now, here is a short video with pictures of last week. All my little friends, all my big Friends, and a few other things.....Have a great week everyone. AND THANKS AGAIN for all your love while I was ill. I know it made My Vickie fill better....Me Too.
