Rufus is showing up more and more in my blog. Hmm.
This weekend was absolutely beautiful – mid to high 70s on Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday, we took the dogs to a huge open field to run. I don’t know who enjoyed the games of fetch more – my dog or my husband.
I attempted, briefly to capture Rufus on camera the other day. These were the results.
Our Goldendoodle, Rufus, hates to be groomed. For such a big, noble dog, he’s a complete wimp. And, he has fur like a buffalo – so he needs regular grooming. His hair was getting hopelessly matted, so he went to the groomers for a spring ‘do. Tell me: would you have guessed this was the same dog?
It doesn’t even look like the same dog. He seriously used to look like he weighed 100 pounds – and now looks like his 65 pound self. I wish I looked like I lost 35 pounds after a good haircut.
And while we’re on the subject of dogs, Netta was snuggling with Matt the other day. It was pretty much the cutest thing ever.
This is what my lap often looks like when we are watching TV:
There are two animals in this house that are quite happy I have been feeling under the weather.
Netta, the Cairn, has been permanently encamped at my feet on the couch.
You know that old joke about kids liking wrapping paper/boxes/bags better than the presents they contain?
Dogs aren’t much better. Ours have more toys that I can count or trip over in the middle of the night. Rope toys, squeaky toys, stuffed animals, nylabones … But what they want most are discarded socks or empty pop bottles.
Hey, it’s recycling, right?
Sorry about the lack of crafts tonight. Feeling a bit under the weather and the most entertainment going on around here is watching a big, dumb dog pretend to drink soda. Ha!
