Well. How appropriate that today, according to the crazy calendar is Social Media Day. Because I have a Social Media story for you…
June 28. Wow. How did June go by so quickly? Two more days and the June Bugs disappear. Somebody better tell them. And they can take their black fly friends along with them.
Busted. Big time…
We have a new game. Tease-a-Picard. It’s our way of getting back at him for Poke-a-PON.
Einstein and I come in:
The FG isn’t close enough, so the screen appears closed. He can’t come in. Or he thinks he can’t.
Her highness opens the door and lets him in. She closes the screen. We go back out through our opening.
He sits and squeaks at the door. We come back in as he observes the process.
If he is close enough, he WILL follow us through. At least he did once. But he has yet to figure it out on his own.
I must confess, this game is a bit of payback for him taking my human to Quebec last week. I’m still just a little bit jealous.
It’s all an illusion.
Sometimes my human really makes me laugh.
After being away for a few days she came home to a yard that was in dire need of mowing. So while we watched from the deck, she pushed the mower around the property. Unfortunately, when she purchased the mower, she bought a model that is not self-propelled. She starts off all happy and moving quickly and by the end of the job she is slowly dragging along and mumbling. Meanwhile, because she is not close enough to us, we are doing the one thing that we have been instructed NOT to do. Peeing on the deck. Every time, before we go out on the deck, she takes us out front for a pee. Then she brings us in, grabs her squirt gun and opens the deck door. She instructs us “NO PEEING.” At which point the FG immediately runs past her and lifts his leg on a deck chair, on the barbecue, or on the house. Even though he was just out to pee. Again she shouts, “NO PEEING.” Uh – too late. Then Einstein and I walk around LOOKING as if we are about to pee. We know better than to go if she is watching. BUT – if she is off mowing…well…when nature calls.
You know that she started the plantation. And she’s been all concerned about the bunnies eating her crops. Well – the other day she decided to do something REALLY crazy. Remember the infamous solar lights in front of the house? The ones that we used to play solar light bowling? The ones that practically fell over every time the wind blew. Or a dog peed on them. Well she decided to get NEW solar lights. These lights appear to be a BIT more substantial. They are bigger. And they have a better base. So she pulled the OLD solar lights out and put in the NEW solar lights. And that’s all fine and good. But what did she do with the OLD solar lights? She put them in the backyard. Where the plantation is located.
Here she is all worried that the bunnies will eat her crops, and she has provided lighting to help them find their way at night. WHAT was she thinking? It looks like a landing strip. Remind me again how humans are the smartest species.
Time to get her walking. And time to check the crops….
Have a good one. Peace and paws up!
Seizure free days: 16
Time for some news in the dog world….
On this day in 2013, Nick Wallenda of the famous acrobatic family, was the first person to walk on a tightrope across the Grand Canyon. Remind me again why humans are considered to be the smartest species? Anyway, my human saw a video of a Belgian Malinois walking a tightrope. And I was going to share that. But THEN I found THIS video – which shows a bit of tightrope walking – but some other daredevil stuff as well. Check this out. And I thought Border Collies were crazy.
Well they are back…Her highness and the FG returned from their Quebec expedition.
Well as difficult as it is, Einstein and I are continuing to behave. Her highness and the FG return tonight – the time went by really quickly. We could use a few more days to train Char. She’ll have to come back again.
They all have something that human’s love- puppy breath. I think if we could bottle that aroma, we could make a LOT of money!
