This is when I want a dog. . . or two. Seeing puppies like this ...
I read and listen to music then go inside to cool off a bit and see if anyone sent an email.
So I go back outside and daydream, imagine a new home, puppies, friends and some sort of social life and then I am shaken out of my daydreams by one very cranky old cat who reminds me that he has to eat on time or else.
Even though it is too early, I feed him. I can still feel all his bones, old cats are like that ... he still digs in at mealtime so I am happy he is well and eating and he can be as cranky as he wants to be.
Minnette waits to see if he leaves anything in his dish and she eats it.
But she doesn't eat her own. She is obviously one of those (children) who thinks what is in the other bowl looks better... even though they eat exactly the same thing.
So I humor her, I take her bowl and the other bowls away then put down one bowl ( hers) and she gobbles it up .. smug with the knowledge that mama gave her a special treat.
Merlin and Honey yawn and go out into the heat for an after dinner nap.
I hope everyone is staying cool, relaxing and enjoying their summer days ...
Hard to believe it is already the end of July ...
"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend.
Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."
