If you are a City Mouse, you missed out on a great Saturday night of taking pics of an April sky while watching your man tend the grill. Hanging with your Pitt Bull. Grilling Kee-Bobs Watching the sky.
a bunny! ~~ April Fools!
It is just after 9am central time and I have taken Bebe & Gilbert out, taken Bebe out, taken Rocky and Missy on a fine walk to the peninsula and lower woods, taken Missy & Gil on a jaunt to the leaning tree, played ball in the front yard with both Gilbert & Beatrix, and
I took the boys on a walk this morning. They had a great time! Seriously. I swear that Tiger has some dog in him. Or… maybe, since he was young when we found him and he only interacted with Rocky & Missy, he imprinted on them. Don’t look at me like that. It’s possible.
“I take it that post title refers to me?” “ruff??” “Indeed it does, Missy! You were a much better girl today than your were yesterday. Thank you!” “I find your tone condescending, Marica. Another day I might not, but today I do.” “Ruff??” “Why, Missy? I just mean to let you know I appreciate you
To celebrate, I took the dogs for a walk and recorded some wonderful video of the birds singing and the breeze blowing and the dogs running. Unfortunately, my camera has decided to become stupid and YouTube doesn’t like me. So here are some stills from earlier this morning.
Just sayin’. Bobbie loves a pit bull.
“Hey Rocky! Missy!” “What is it? What’s all the excitement?” “Ruff?” “The folks at Reason made a short video about pit bulls! You gotta watch this.” “Okay! I’ll get the popcorn.” “Ruff!” “It’s not that long, Missy. Just sit down and watch.” “Alright. Move over, Rocky, I can’t see.” “C’mon, boy. Jump up here on

Rocky and Missy If it weren’t for Rocky & Missy, who would take me on my walk?
26°F out there this morning and she decided to take a swim. Beautiful morning. Wonderful run. Saw the pair of ducks and managed to snap a photo or two. Perhaps I’ll post a couple later in the day. I must away. It’s the first Monday of the Month and you know what that means… .
Rocky Recollect that the Almighty, who gave the dog to be companion of our pleasures and our toils, hath invested him with a nature noble and incapable of deceit. –Sir Walter Scott, The Talisman (1825) from The Quotable Dog Lover (Patricia M. Sherwood, ed., The Lyons Press, New York, 2000)
Rocky is doing well. Thank you all for asking! He is not supposed to exert himself for 10 days. Daughter C has sequestered him in her room. He comes out occasionally to say “Hello” and to see what’s up in the world. I think he’s recovering quite nicely. Miss Missy, on the other hand, is a mess.
Rocky is having surgery tomorrow morning.
We’ve had some rain and cooler weather so I’ve been opening the windows in the Den the last few evenings. Missy does love to look out the window. Occasionally, something on the wind will capture her attention and she will signal to Rocky that he should come running & pay attention, too. And then he
A. Leland was last to read his sentence. After hearing ours, he said he wished he’d written a better one. So let’s get his out of the way first. I know of no other better descriptive term for Rachel Maddow than “harpy.” Referring to Kat’s 3rd Grade Teacher– before we raised a ruckus and had
The dogs will be cooped up in the den all day. SEC football will be on and the kitchen will be a mess, but smell really good– that’s 1 cup of freshly picked sage + other things. You will come upon scenes like this. That’s Apple, Fennel, Sage Sausage. I’m anxious to try that. More on
a Rocky! a Missy! a posy! a birdie! a four-leaf clover!
