Lucy loves to be on the deck so that she can watch the animals and birds. If there is no action, she gets a bit bored and lies down on the job.
She loves to rest her head on almost anything, the lower railing working just fine.
The other evening, the girls were on the deck while my husband prepared the grill. He came inside, thinking both dogs came with him. I heard Lucy whining at the door and looked around to see why she was whining. It seems Ellie had not come inside and was now wondering what to do. She is not accustomed to being on the deck alone.
Sometimes, the girls find themselves on the wrong side of the door. I was out on the deck taking some bird pictures, and Ellie was quite upset that I didn't invite her out with me.
The worst times for them are when we are working in the front yard. They will stand at the dining room window, looking out at us until we come inside the house. Notice that Ellie is carrying a tennis ball in her mouth as usual.
Today is truly a golden day in the mountains. We are having cool, sunny days with a hint of autumn in the air.
Whatever the weather, I hope you have a wonderful weekend. If you still do not have enough gas to go far, explore your own yard and neighborhood. Have a fun-filled and safe weekend. Here's hoping all our midwest friends have power.
