The first rule of old dogs: Old Dogs Rule
I tried to get some outdoor photos today, I really did, but I had one of those days where the weather is OUT TO GET ME. It was sunny all morning whilst I ran around doing errands. It was sunny while I unloaded and put away groceries, and threw in a load of wash. It began to sprinkle as soon as the dogs and I stepped outside. It started peeing when I popped back inside to get my camera. It stopped for a bit while we played ball, so I ran back to the house to get the camera again…meanwhile, it started throwing down buckets of sideways water outside. I gave up on the camera and took the dogs for a walk at the back of the property. Once I’d dried everyone off and got them all back in the house, the sun came out again. It’s been out for 4 hours.
So instead, you’ll have to settle for a few posed shots of The Most Beautiful Dog In The World.
We ultrasounded the old man yesterday, and his heart is good and strong and all the lumps and bumps I was worried about are mere lipomas. He’s in great shape for almost 14!
Tomorrow Dexter, Spring and me are entered in an agility trial. It’s almost that time of year – the Waffling Will-I-Or-Won’t-I enter Dex in Regionals season. I have to say he has been doing very good at weekly practice. Maybe it just took almost-five-years for him to grow up and learn that he has a brain rattling around in that bean of his. He may never be a National Champion, but at long last he is actually pretty fun to play with these days!
Happy Pi Day everyone!
