They have a little business to attend to first. Lucy starts a little wrestling match. These occur several times a day and the dogs are not fighting. No one is ever bitten or injured, although they do look a bit vicious.
The bouts end as abruptly as they begin. This one ends with Ellie pinning Lucy to the driveway. She puts her down flat on the surface. You can almost hear Lucy saying, "Uncle."
Here is the bird we purchased. We have few requirements for our art and our collection is eclectic at best. We purchase things we like, that blend more-or-less into the yard, and are not offensive to anyone. Something about this bird caught our fancy, so we brought it home.
The scuffle over, the girls are steered over toward the bird. They approach cautiously, sniffing as they go.
Lucy checks out the front end and Ellie the back. The doggie sniff test is an important part of checking out anything.
Lucy becomes bored quickly, but Ellie remains to continue to check out the new sculpture.
Following this burst of activity, the girls come back inside. Yes, another photograph of Ellie serving as Lucy's pillow. I do wish they were able to relax.
It's almost mid-June. School is out and for our area that means summer campers and tourists. We rarely leave home on weekends, but we have plenty to keep us entertained. Our Golden Girls provide plenty of amusement. We have the community trails to ourselves. We are treated to fledglings and watching the birds prepare for another nesting. Life is good.
Have a safe and wonderful weekend. Enjoy yourself and be kind to others.
