I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

More Waiting on Wednesday

With the temperatures heating up in the desert, pooooooooor Stumpy is being left home, more frequently, in spite of her being a service dog. I'm not comfortable making her walk on hot black top AND it's been quite sometime since I have required her services.



Stumpy, do you REALLY think that waiting under Blue's tire is the the best way to ensure you don't get left at home?

Stumpy was supposed to party with her friend Rain, today. It isn't going to happen but she wants to wish her wants to wish her partner in crime, camping buddy and Road Dawg extraordinaire a very happy first birthday!

Then


And now



Happy birthday, Rain!

Rain is such a cutie!! Tell Rain we pass along our birthday wishes as well!

Stumpy, were you being a bit of a drama queen there under the tire? It's not THAT bad!! Don't do it!! :) Riley would much rather go out with me, but doesn't do well in the heat due to her black fur and undercoat...I'm assuming Stumpy is probably the same way. Funny how the Cattle Dogs were originally bred in Australia for droving cattle, yet my Cattle Dog is not very heat tolerant! I would think Australia would be a lot hotter than Virginia.

Anyway...enough rambling...happy Wednesday!

Kari, I'll pass your birthday wishes along to Rain!

Jan, isn't she the most pathetic EVER?

Elyse, strangely enough Stumpy loves baking. I'm sure there'll be a future post!

OP Pack! You're still online... avery good sign! We're counting on partying with Rain, in the future!

Lorenza, Our beautiful weather here will be over soon and it will be to hot to go anywhere.

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!

Okay, Rain looks like a distant cousin of Stella's. I've thought the same thing about Stumpy too though, must be the spots. Know what you mean about slowing down in the heat. Even though our weather doesn't come close to yours temp-wise, we have to walk early or Stella just sits down and refuses to go forward.

Rain, You're a speshul grrrrrrrl!

Sophie, we didn't get to see Rain on her birthday, but we're planning a bleated birthday party.

Susan, I think Stella has some of those naughty spots make the three of them similar. Thank DOG we don't have to deal with the humidity you do!

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
