We are enjoying some gorgeous weather around here. The mornings are cool and crisp and the days are sunny with the occasional shower. (Of course, one of those showers popped up just as I was leaving the salon after my hair cut.)
I am filled with political rhetoric, but have decided that Golden Fridays should be kept golden. And I'm sure you thank me for that.
Thank goodness our Golden Girls have no worries about the world. Their concerns are primarily whether or not they will get dinner. With amazing regularity, they sit at my husband's knee beginning at 4:00 every afternoon until he feeds them at 4:30. Near 9:00 pm they begin to wander around to remind us that it is time for their last trip outside and then bedtime. We've never had dogs more eager to go to bed than these two.
The dogs are comfortable with rules and routines. They know what parts of the house are dog-free zones. They know toys are for the den and not the great room. (Well, Ellie makes an exception for her beloved tennis balls. To her credit, she does not play with them except in the den; merely carries them around with her.) For no reason I can discern, they always take their chews to their beds to work on them there.
Believe it or not, Lucy always goes to the bed with her name on it.
She also has a tennis ball for safe keeping.
Ellie is slower and more deliberate with her chew.
You would think her jaws would be sore, but she is not often seen without one or two tennis balls unless she is sleeping.
Today's quote is from physicist Albert Einstein. In case you didn't believe he was a real genius, reflect on this statement from the early 20th century:
"It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity."
HAVE A FUN AND SAFE WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!
