Happy 20th

Today would have been Maggie's 20th birthday.    I wish that I could have known you, Maggie.
I'm wearing your pink bandana.    You loved pink~
 Today is also mom's birthday.   For thirteen and a half years, the girls celebrated their birthdays together~  and they still do in spirit~
Mom ran errands yesterday and she came home with a pressie for me - and it's not my birthday - it's hers.
Thank you for the lambie, mom!
Happy Birthday to my mom and to angel Maggie♥

Flower Friday

We are joining Arty this week for Flower Friday~
I found raspberries!
 And a bunny!
 We are seeing lots of Daylilies just like you are, Arty!
 The American Chestnut trees are in bloom.  The blossoms have a very distinctive smell.   The smell reminds mom of wet cement - because years ago, when she and dad were pouring the slab for his workshop barn, the Chestnut trees were in bloom in their yard and the scent was overpowering.  
 And who doesn't love the smell of the beautiful Marigold!
 We found Milkweed~

And Crown Vetch~
 I found some Chicory!
 And we found lovely wild roses in bloom.
And then............. as mom turned to leave the wild roses, she tripped on a huge branch in the road that she hadn't notice before because she was having too much fun with the flashy beast, and down she went.  I took the opportunity to help myself to yummy grass while she was rolling around in the road.   I knew I wasn't going to get yelled at this time☺   She scraped up both elbows, hurt her wrist and her shoulder and her ankle but thankfully, her camera was not injured - and she was VERY relieved about that and she was also thankful that she never dropped my leash!      She feels so fortunate that she didn't fall forward into the wild rose's thorns and the poison ivy!
We were at the end of our walkie and not far from our house so she was able to hobble home pretty quickly.
She realized not long after we got back home that her ankle was worse than she originally thought.  There was no swelling or bruising at that time but she couldn't put any weight on her foot and she pretty much relaxed for the rest of the day and the next day.
I was crossing my paws that we could get back to our regular routine soon.   I was SOOOO bored!
Update~~~~We are back to walkies!  YAY!   Now we need to get rid of this heat and humidity.
Happy Friday, everybuddy☺

Calming Bites

I have been taking these Calming Bites for over a week now.

Yes, they make me calm when there is nothing to be worried about.   If I see or hear a fly, I go into my normal frantic action and try to find a safe place to hide.  
When I hear fireworks or thunder, I still get anxious but a little less so and I still velcro myself to mom but I don't pant and pace quite as much.
 Did you know that a 70 pound dog really can sit on a hooman's lap?  It's very comforting and comfortable and you need to try it some time if you haven't already tried it.

On a scale of one to ten,  we give these calming bites a 4.
So onto July 4th and the big booming fireworks *insert worried face*

Love ya lots♥

My New Summer Collar

My posting with the watermelon sunglasses got mom to thinking that it might be fun if I had a watermelon collar.

Thanks for the yummy summer treat, mom☺  I sure do love my new collar!
You gotta see mom's new facebook pic.   She told me that we were going to share.    I got way more of it than she did☺

Happy July First☺

Mackie Was Here

Mackie got to see our new place for the very first time.   The first thing he does when he visits me and mom is to make sure there is enough kibble in the food bin for him!

Of course we remembered to pack and bring your purple baby, Mackie!
 We had more fun together this time, even though there isn't a fenced in yard here.   We have more space and that's a good thing!
 Mom groomed him and at exactly the right time with our superHOT temps on the rise.

Love ya lots♥

Flower Friday

We are joining Rosy for Flower Friday~

Off we go~
That's a heavily scented Snuggle dryer sheet tied onto my harness.   The bugs are very pesty in the early morning flying around my face and mom's face so we are both wearing dryer sheets.  Our friend, Art, told us that they work and so far - so good!
 We didn't get too far before we discovered that Landlord Bob has another Clematis in bloom!
 We found Evening Primrose~
 And Lilies around this well~
 And Lilies near this mailbox~
 Guess what I found?!     I left it there but I sniffed it for a good long time!
 And even more Lilies!
 We discovered that someone mowed a path into the secret garden so we followed it.
 I wonder what they're going to do in here?
 And we found this beautiful Foxglove in our back yard!
 Happy Friday, everybuddy☺

Love ya lots♥
