LIFE'S BETTER IN THE MOUNTAINS

We Love Lucy


What a nice week we have had.  Perfect mountain weather with cool nights and sunny days and a bright moon.  The lightning bugs are everywhere.  Unfortunately, a lot of other bugs are plentiful as well.

As regular readers know, our Lucy has two speeds.  Zero and sixty.  She loves her long walks and off-lead time in the park.  And she also loves her frequent naps in the sun.  A dog's life is good indeed.

Lucy finds the sun even on warm days.


July is whizzing past and there are 173 days remaining in 2014.

Today's quote is from naturalist and travel writer Edward Hoagland:

In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi-human.  The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.

Good advice for these hot summer days.



HAVE A WONDERFUL AND SAFE WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!

Lucy looks like she is relaxing --maybe after her long walk.

We have not had much HOT weather so far --and they say we will have another cool spell next week.. Amazing --for July..

Wonder what August will give us?????????

Hugs,
Betsy

Happy Friday to you! I love the quote-think it is very applicable.
Hunter is more lazy than active, but he can play with his cousins almost non stop.

We will be getting some of that great weather next week. Can't wait. It has really been a mild summer.

I think I'm already part dog - at least the part that likes to laze in the sun :)

What a lovely quote....I think I am part dog :)
I love to play with Nella. I watched Poppi yesterday having tug of war with nella. It was great fun as poppi tried to get the fake rabbit from her. Nella won of course.....

Pats for Lucy......enjoy these summer days.

Love the quote -- I often envy our dogs. And I enjoyed tagging along in your visit to the craft fair.
