Pooches, early this morning Starlight was delivered to her groomer for a new furdo and my manservant headed off to a not-so-nearby village for appointments with his three teeth vets! Neither of them seemed to be happy about their scheduled appointments. I took advantage of their all morning absence to enjoy a bit of solitude.
When my manservant returned he seemed to be quite happy about his vet visits and immediately began working on our Christmas decorations while listening to Hanukkah music on the radio. He soon received a message that Starlight’s appointment at her groomer had concluded and we both hopped in the Hybridmobile to retrieve her and take an excursion on our return. When we picked up Starlight, the Hybridmobile, my manservant, and I all oohed and ahhed over her new furdo. She seemed to be quite pleased as we made our way to my Saturday park.
Pooches, it was a wee bit chilly for a lengthy excursion but it was such a pretty day my manservant bundled up and we scoured my park for new smells since our last visit. There were a number of visitors there enjoying the pretty day as well. Starlight, of course, had to parade by each of them to show off her furdo.
We’ve returned to our den and Starlight and I will be busily decorating our Christmas tree this afternoon. My manservant has departed to the market for produce for tonight’s meal.
Happy Hanukkah in advance, pooches!
Pooches, what a dreary Friday it has been! It started off cloudy and cold. As my manservant began his early morning walk/run the rain began. He quickly returned to our den. Not only had his walk/run been cancelled, he confided to Starlight and me that his plan for today had been to rake leaves throughout the morning which now would not happen.
I quickly called a pack meeting to develop a new itinerary for the day. After much spirited discussion we decided it was a good day to cocoon! Books were placed by the Davenport, Starlight and I assumed our positions, and the cocooning began. We snoozed throughout the morning except for a brief trip outside after the sprinkling subsided and when my manservant prepared waffles (whole wheat, of course) with ground sausage and maple syrup.
It was just a wee bit later that my manservant returned to the kitchen and soon emerged with a bowl of chili. It was quite tasty and we concluded that cocooning makes a soul hungry!
The rain seems to be over but we’ve decided to resume cocooning throughout this afternoon. Starlight and I need our rest as we will be busy tonight when my womanservant returns from the Big Easy.
Pooches, see you tomorrow on Silent Saturday.
Pooches, it was a boring morning at our den! My manservant headed out in the freezing air for his walk/run early this morning. His return was sooner than usual. It seems he left his jacket at our den and his attempt to do his ‘walk/run anyway’ didn’t last too long. Because he had an early morning meeting in a nearby village to our north to plan academic responsibility duties for the upcoming semester, he said he would have to get his exercise done later.
In the late morning when he returned from his meeting the leaves covering our yard must have been on his mind. He grabbed his trusty rake and raked leaves well past our normal excursion time. In early afternoon he came inside saying he was starving. Starlight and I cheered! Pork tenderloin with stewed apples was withdrawn from the icebox and we were dining heartily in short order. After lunch he headed back outside with his eye on some more leaves.
Finally, pooches, he said he had done enough raking and we all piled into the Hybridmobile for the short journey back to his walk/run park. Although still somewhat chilly, the temperature was tolerable and we headed to a part of the park we rarely visit. Starlight and I had a grand time bounding about the trail.
We’ve returned to our den now. My manservant eyed the rake leaning up against the fence but had second thoughts. He is now in the library reading. As usual, Starlight and I are headed for our afternoon naps.
Pooches, my womanservant has headed to the Big Easy this afternoon for an evening of fun and games! I guess my manservant will have to shoulder the ‘chair time’ and ‘Starlight game’ responsibilities this evening.
Tomorrow’s Friday! Woo hoo!!
Pooches, what an excursion we had today! My manservant only did a small part of his walk/run this morning and by mid-morning he was raring to go. Due to the early hour it was decided to wait to eat our lunch upon the completion of our excursion
My manservant wanted to do some serious walking and the Hybridmobile knew the perfect spot: my Choctaw Agency park which is on my multi-use trail. When we arrived we wasted no time in putting ourselves in high gear and off we went down the trail!!
After being delayed by a malfunctioning traffic sign, we continued southwest on the trail. Wildlife was abundant. The first sighting was a deer which crossed my trail right in front of us. Starlight and I wanted to give chase but were restrained by my manservant. Our second sighting was a rafter of wild turkeys. We gave a short chase before they scurried away into the woods. Our final wildlife sighting was a fox headed toward us on the trail. I suppose he was on the shy side because he fled in the opposite direction when he saw us.
We’re back at our den now and Starlight and I are headed for or afternoon naps. I’m sure our dreams will include ample wild creatures!
