Interesting week we've had here in the mountains. Today is stormy with heavy rains predicted for this afternoon continuing through the weekend. Oh well. Guess it is meant for us to relax this weekend.
Our Lucy really knows how to relax. The other evening she was sleeping so soundly she didn't hear me cutting the carrots. As I approached her, she was clearly deciding whether to continue her nap or if it was to her benefit to get up. I should tell you that Lucy loves fruits and vegetables. She especially loves apples, carrots and green beans, but also likes strawberries and tomatoes.
I'll just open my eyes and raise my head a little bit
When I asked if she would like some carrots she jumped to her feet with a smile.
Oh yes! I'd love some carrots, please
I handed the carrot pennies to my husband. He makes Lucy sit and wait before giving her any. Then he hands her one at a time, slowly. She hates that.
Why doesn't he just give me the carrots already?
Lucy is surprised that some dogs, even Golden Retrievers do not like fruits and veggies.

Harlow (above) and her brother Monty are entered in a contest for a wine label to benefit the Arizona Golden Retriever Connection (AZGRC). Go to their blog here and see their lovely photographs. There is a link on the post that allows you to connect and donate to the AZGRC by voting for them if you are so inclined. The votes are one dollar and you may vote as many times as you wish. All proceeds will go to helping rescues.
This week has seen an escalation of fighting across the middle east. The US has made air strikes in Iraq against a group of terrorists who seem to be killing and destroying civilians indiscriminately. Our thoughts go out to those civilians in Iraq, the Palestinians in Gaza, the Israelis, the displaced Syrians as well as those in Ukraine. We also turn our thoughts to our fellow Americans in Hawaii during the hurricanes bashing their shores. We hope they can find peace again.
Today's quote is from Mother Teresa:
"If we have no peace it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other."
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!
STAY SAFE AND HELP YOUR NEIGHBOR AND THOSE IN DISTRESS.
