7.7.12 ‘I’m Bored!’

Lounging on the deck is such a relaxing experience.  K8 took some great shots of Sofie, just being Sofie.  Looking pretty, checking out what is around her, and showing that she is not very interested in lying quietly.  Sofie is one of those dogs that gets bored.  You have to always have something for her to do, or she will create something, like dig a whole to China (which is our very North American term for digging through the earth to the other side, which for us, is China we think – but is it really?)  Since we were out of power for so many days, I went to the only open supermarket and picked up a few new dog toys.  Each dog got a supposedly indistructable stuffed toy (Lulu got a fish and Sofie a turtle).  Turtle lasted about 1 hr before her stuffing was everywhere (she is pink, so I figured it was a girl turtle).  Fish actually held for about 2 days (he is yellow).  He is half stuffed now (and of course I did a ‘squeeker-ectomy’ once opened by the girls).  Then I also bought them each a new ‘Bo-Bo,’  I only see Lulu’s so I assume Sofie’s is lying empty of stuffing somewhere.  It kept them busy for a little while and to me that is wonderful.  We still walk in the 107 degree F heat (about 42 Celsius) and then they sleep it off for awhile too.  Ah, the life of a dog in suburbia.  Wish I had time to be bored with you Sofie!

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    Sofie is such a pretty lady! 🙂 Also, I didn’t know you are also a (toy) surgeon! Are “squeeker-ectomy”s your specialty? 😉 You are just the jack-of-all-trades! When I perform this procedure, I get a look from Taylor that reads “Why, Mommy? WHY?”

      They do not like when I perform the procedure either. And sometimes I am to late and they get the silly thing and start to chew it, which worries me. Really good toys have a little pocket that they can’t get to, but sometimes, I just buy the cheapo toys and those do require early surgery,
