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

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Stumpy continues to wait

My laptop was infected last week. (I've been humming "Instant Kharma" for over a week, now.)

Stumpy's been pretty patient while I've attempted, over and over, to remove the viruses and malware. I haven't been totally successful, yet. I have gotten rid of everything, but the laptop is not running correctly. It's a work in progress and one that I will probably have to take to an outside computer whisperer. Grrrr!

In the meantime, Stumpy waits
waiting for breakfast

waiting to go out

waiting for pals

waiting to go in

waiting for a treat

waiting for dinner

She just waits and waits and waits, all day long

When Stumpy was waiting, wordlessly, last Wednesday, she was waiting for a couple of strays that have been hanging around some.

I haven't been around much, due to the infected laptop. stumpy hopes that problem will be remidied soon! I'm pretty sure she's more sick of waiting, than usual!

C'mon over the hill, Stumpy -- we'll all go for a hike!!

Jan said...

I think many harassed humans would trade places with Stumpy.

Kari in Alaska said...

My three think they wait too much as well!


Pam said...

Poor Stumpy...waiting must be a dog's worst nightmare! Booker's sending hugs, Stumpy!! And Pam is sending lots of love and hugs to Cyn!

Sometimes waiting is fun, especially if a few treats get tossed into the game:) Sorry about the 'puter woes - hope you can get it all fixed soon.

PeeEssWoo: Good lukhk with driving out the demons!

Terrorzinhos said...

Poor Stumpy....
Waiting is a terrible thing! We hate it!

Stella said...

At least he is waiting for things that do come.
Waiting for a phone call is the furry worst thing of all though.

Stella, who recommends napping.

Stumpy, have you become a WAITress? :)

Too bad about the computer...viruses drive me absolutely insane... Hope you get it fixed soon.

Lorenza said...

All that waiting is not very funny, right?
I hope your computer "gets better" soon!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Wyatt said...

Sending some good vibes to your laptop! Maybe Stumpy wants to go on another road trip!


ForPetsSake said...

Yes- positive, karmic thoughts to you! Poor Stumpy having to wait - but she does look awfully cute doing it :)

Time to bring out a few of those challenging games.

And MOM! - whatever is in Stumpy's pool???
Does not look like it is ready for swim time.
If it is a digging pool then it needs treasures to dig for.

Hope your viruses are worked out soon.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Rottrover, hopefully sometime this month!

Jan, I agree! Her life doesn't look to hard to take.

Kari, it's a dog's life, eh?

Pam, Back at ya! (and Booker, too!)

OP Pack, I'm pretty sure, Stumpy knows if she looks pathetic enough, the treats will be forthcoming!

Ruthie, That's a good point!

Carey, We can hope!

Khyra, We keep hoping one of your trip will bring you to dirtville, complete with a few passengers you can leave, when you go!

Terrorzinhos, you must convince the humans to make it worth your while with treats!

Stella, I am sure Stumpy is grateful that she doesn't have to wait for the phone! I've tried to cross those off the list, myself!

Elyse and Riley, Perish the thought! Stumpy serving someone???

Lorenza, Waiting is horrible!

Wyatt, We are both waiting and looking forward to our next roadtrip!

ForPetsSake, Stumpy looks cute doing most things. that's why she's as spoiled as she is!

Dogsmom, Stumpy has a pool? going to look >>>>

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

dogsmom, I found the pool. that's actually an attempt at a garden (not my attempt). Gardens have to be protected from the critters that eat everything. It didn't work.

♥ Sallie said...

I learn a lot from Jon Lennon and Stumy's patience! :O

I'm sorry abouts the waiting, Stumpy. We wouldn't have to wait NEAR as much if we had opposable thumbs and could open the door and gets our own dinner. Good luck to your mom in getting rid of those viruses on the computer. Maybe she needs to get it some Auntie Biotics.

Wiggles & Wags,

Stumpy you are far more patient that I! Hope your waiting days are over soon! :D

What a terrible way to spend time creating nasty things to make other peeps puters malfunction! Arrest em all I say! Grrrrrr!

Hope the puter whisperer gets it fixed for ya! :)


Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Sallie, Jon Lennon's a musical genius for sure!

Mayzie, If stumpy had opposable thumbs I'd be unemployed!

Roo, Stumpy isn't all that patient...you're only seeing pictures of the quiet times.

Brenda's Arizona said...

Stumpy, I'm with you. Waiting is for the birds!

Helen Verte said...

You are lucky Stumpy is patient and waits quietly. I have pushy dogs that poke and prod and bark while they wait. :-) Stumpy seems like a very introspective type. She's adorable.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Brenda, I'm with you!

helen, You only see the pictures when she's waiting quietly. Frequently, she's moving to quicly to catch in a frame or pushing me so I can't get a shot.
