Fridays Are Golden

The Ides of March!  And so quickly time flies.  We've had a good week with heavy fog burning off to bright sunshine.  Temperatures have been much lower than normal, but the Golden Girls love the crisp air.  They were delighted last Sunday to have dinner an hour earlier than usual but quickly accustomed themselves to that.  Won't be so easy when we go back to Standard Time.

For some reason, Ellie put her chest and paws on a large rock.  Perhaps she liked the warmth.

Lucy photobombed this picture of Ellie.
Wait, I think she has something in her mouth again.

Come here, Lucy.  Have you picked up something again?
omph, If I don't look at her she might not notice.

She had picked up a piece of pine bark.  Honestly, her mouth is like a vacuum cleaner attachment.

I put them at a sit/stay because I had noticed a neighbor walking his dog.
They are VERY interested in what's going on in their road.

But they stay put nonetheless.  You can tell they don't like it from their solemn faces.

It seems appropriate that this week's quote should come from St. Francis of Assisi:

"While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart."

So peace and love to all of you.

Oh the girls are so cute all solemn there waiting :)

Yes, peace would be nice. I wonder what it looks like?

What beautiful dogs.
Mine passed away not too long ago Had him 16 years, Wonderful dog.
I think these are the best dogs in the world.

your girls are so well behaved! I could never get my girls to 'sit/stay' if another dog came along. They do look put out, though!

St. Francis is my favorite of all the saints. He was the most cool, by far.

Have a lovely weekend.

Your girls are so well behaved and obedient! I do love them and goldens in general. We had some nice warm weather yesterday and this morning but it is clouding up now. Have a wonderful weekend.

The girls are really quite beautiful dogs. I love their serious expressions as much as I like their joyful poses. Maybe more.

I showed their picture to Baron. He needs some role models on sit/stay...

I love to see dogs so well trained. You are rightly proud of them ...

Dogs are wonderful. I love my boxer/lab mix.


Your dogs are such good buddies -- and so beautiful -- barbara

Lucy was just being helpful, right? LOL! They are too cute and such wonderful girls. I admire how well you've trained them both.
I hope your weekend was wonderful!

Thanks for your comments everyone. The dogs are usually well-behaved. Time and effort, and continual training.
