Yeah! Memorial day weekend is opening day for the big pool. Don’t worry that it looks like a lagoon. Mom says the winter was so mild that all the green stuff called ‘algae’ had a lot of time to grow. She says it will burn away when the sun comes out (and after she throws in a ton of chlorine). She can’t go in anytime soon anyway because of her foot cast though she is still doing all the prep-work. That lady never sits still for long. We got a new friend this year, he’s called a ‘minion.’ We think his name is ‘Stuart.’
We can’t wait until the ducks try to swim in the lagoon so that we can chase them away. For now, we wait.
Have a great weekend!
Louise and Sofie finally returned from Sonya’s Dog Farm after 2 weeks away. This means that Charles and Mini Cooper no longer are the only two critters that wanted to be on Mommy while she recuperates. The big dogs jumped right up and made themselves at home. Charles decided that it was best to seek the highest point on the bed for safety (Mom’s foot pillow). Isn’t Mom lucky that she has all of us taking care of her and making sure that she is protected on all sides?
This is a Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop. Thanks to BlogPaws for the hop. Head over there and see what they are blogging about.
Every year Harold and Maude, or their children or grandchildren, have come back to nest in the front yard. Ducks do that. The experts at Ducks Unlimited say that ducks “imprint information about their home breeding and wintering areas and use navigational cues to return to them. Adult female ducks often return to former breeding sites.”
We have been blessed for the last 16 year’s as we have watched Harolds and Maudes waddle around the grounds, swim in the pool, and ultimately waddle their ducklings down to the river.
Luckily the ducks are in the front yard. The dogs would love to chase them, and do roust them if they fly into the back or worse in the pool, but the front is leash only territory so the duckies are ‘kind of’ safe. They must feel at home since they keep coming back.
What kind of mischief did you get into today?
Charles is a happy sort. He really is enjoying that Mom has to work lying down, so he gets to snuggle up close and help her type. Small pleasures.
For the first 14 days after Mom’s surgery, she could not step on her foot. The big dogs were gone and it was very quiet. We helped her sleep. And we helped her work. And we fought over her lap. The first week all she did was sleep but then she started to work lying down. Mini and I would fight every morning to see who could win her lap. Mom called it LapWars: LapTop, LapDog, LapCat. At the end of the week, the score was Charles: 3 Mini: 4. Noel did not try to play, she just wanted to sit next to Mommy on her knee scooter and stare at her. Sadly, the big dogs return on Day 15, so we don’t know if LapWars will be permanently interrupted by Louise and Sofie pushing in to own Mommy. We will see – stay tuned to this channel because next week I am going to rule the lap! (Mom says 2 weeks down and 6 to go before any dog walking is possible). – Reported by Charles, the MugWump
